Man gets postcard from mom half-century after she mailed it
"We'll probably be home before this gets there!" Scott McMurry's mom wrote on a postcard to her son. She was right about that, since McMurry didn't receive his now late mother's note until last week, around 55 years after she mailed it. A Florida woman found the 2-cent stamped surprise in her mailbox and posted a picture of it on Facebook. McMurry got wind of the photo through the Power of the Internet. In a sweet P.S. to the story, Chicago's John G. Shedd Aquarium, pictured on the front of the card, has offered McMurry and his family an all-expenses paid trip to visit. We just hope they didn't send the invite via postcard.
