Package Shenanigans

Man, sometimes I just don’t know…

With the last of the generous investment from dovac, I ordered some electronic components from a Chinese eBay store.  I do this a lot, with no issues.  In fact, I’d done it two other times in the previous weeks.  This time, the wheels came off the wagon.

Okay, so far so good.  Just like the last two packages, it’ll go from Illinois to Massachusetts, and then to Vermont.  Right?
