SLOW PLANE FROM CANADA

      Two days ago (6th February) we received an air mail item that had been posted in Canada on December 15th 2002.  It had a Canada Post Office Label showing that it had been weighed and checked for rate at the PO in Canada.

      There was a UK postmark dated 5th February over the Customs label.

    The plane must have flown at 3000 miles/(53*24)hr = 2.36 mph

    I could have canoed across faster...
