A few weeks ago, I was shopping in Kroger and had a craving for walnuts. I went over to the nut bins in the produce section, and found a 1 lb. bag of "California Grown Shelled Walnuts" at a reasonable price. When I got them home and munched a few, I found them to be the best walnuts I have ever tasted!
I quickly sat down and wrote a postcard to the address I found on the back of the bag- The Poindexter Nut Company- telling them how much I love the walnuts and that I would definitely continue to purchase those over any others. After I sent it, I pretty much forgot about it. I mean, I meant every word, but I didn't think I would get a reply. They are busy people, after all, and I respect that.
Today I was tending the finches and saw one of these out of the attic window, in our drive:
My Gran regularly gets deliveries of health products, vitamins and the like, and Mom often gets books and things shipped for school. I hadn't ordered anything online, so I wasn't expecting anything. I figured it was for one of them and went back to my day.
Jennifer and Charles came in off the bus at 3, and brought me a package! :D I love surprise mail!
I opened it to find this:
A very nice letter thanking me for my note, and 2 bags of walnuts!!! AWESOME!!! Poindexter Nut Co., YOU ROCK!!! :) Completely made my week!!!
After I write a thank you letter (which will count as part of the 52 weeks project! Bonus points!), I am so off to the kitchen to make some cookies with some of these marvelous walnuts! (If there are any left, since I can't stop nomming them straight out of the bag!)
