That last picture is awesome John.  I hope you enjoy the bow and it meets your expectations.  If you aren't happy with the bow for any reason please let me know and I will replace it.

So the USPS called me, on a Sunday evening (!?), and said that the package is being returned to me.  They said it can take up to 2 weeks.  It has been over 2 weeks but he assured me it hasn't been lost.  The tracking status did change slightly.  They added "Your package will arrive later than expected, but is still on its way."  We'll see.  I'm guessing returning a largish package due to an address error is not high on their Priority (Mail) list.  I'll let you know if anything changes.

The status of the return hasn't changed still.  I am not sure what to do here.  I can ship a different bow or we can wait.

The USPS had the nerve to send me this survey request "We want your feedback regarding your case ..." when they haven't even sent the package back.  I have no faith left that they would read it, but I'll give them a piece of my mind.

So "Craig" with the USPS got back to me:

"The item could take up to 6 weeks to get back to you as sender."

Let me know if you'd rather not wait that long.

None of the shippers are perfect, but consider how many packages they move every day(or don't move)  :)
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Soooo...guess what just showed up.  And the bow is relatively intact :)  The packaging looks like an ape has been running it around the country though.  I mean they have TRY to bang crap up like they do.  I'm going to do a full checkup on the bow and then send it on it's merry way back across the country.  I should have just taken the thing there myself with the low cost of flights today.  Probably cheaper than the redo :)  Although I've seen how the airline baggage (mis)handlers treat stuff too.

Well, it was shipped in June and now we’re in August. 6 weeks about does it.

Glad to hear it made it back largely intact. I recommend the obvious recipient reach out to John to triple check the address before it gets mailed again. Just sayin...
