I can't imagine how this didn't get destroyed or lost and just magically showed back up in the mail in perfect condition after all those years.

Well, this did happen in Nebraska and as our Cafe friends can tell you, they don't even know where the center of the US is :-b

You know what I did? I read that article days ago and didn't remember the Nebraska part, so just now I searched for "nebr," which is my common Nebraska search. I saw Kansas and Illinois and the search came up zero, so I felt all confident in my post.

That'll show me.
