We are Up Up & Away! with this Paper Airplane Printable Card and Date Meets Zip Postmark which is tomorrow for Bennett, IA whose zip is 52721. I’ve also got a reminder about running backups, AND although I don’t cover it here indepth, for those PONY EXPRESS snail mail enthusiasts, you want to check out the pictorial postmark coming up for May 29, 2021, for the Yucca Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Let me start off by saying both you and I can save our money and MAKE our own paper airplane and use it for sending a letter. IF we want to opt for splurging a little less than six dollars for the adorable one I’m showing today from Etsy we can do that, however, what I love is we can do both of these items without spending anything if we want.
Reminder – Don’t forget about running backups!
But first, this short REMINDER the next few days before closing out the month of May is a great time to do our backups. Whether it is pulling out the external hard drive to backup anything really important on our computer, and smartphone, or cloud we want to be making sure there is a recent backup.
Personally, I still love the option of being able to move photos physically from my phone onto an SD card besides all of the other options we have – I really like being able to put my hands on them and store a set in a secure place.
Paper Airplane Printable Card
Secondly, the editable Airplane Paper Plane Template Fun Card printable PDF over at Etsy is available for $5.91, the YouGrewPrintables is out of Greenhithe, United Kingdom.
There is a set of instructions for folding, editing, and printing. Furthermore, the editable paper plane template is very easy to use, and the other one with no editing text is great too. Both are for 8.5″ x 11″. For writing this blog post it included my purchasing it and downloading it checking it out.
It is all very nicely done for less than six dollars!
Date Meets Zip Postmark
And thirdly, from last week’s USPS Postal Bulletin 22572, there is May 27, 2021 ZIP Code Day Station for Bennett, IA whose zip is 52721. The pictorial postmark is available by request to:
May 27, 2021
United States Postal Service
ZIP Code Day Station

This is a partial excerpt with one of the ways to request:
“Customers wishing to obtain a postmark must affix stamps to any envelope or postcard of their choice, address the envelope or postcard to themselves or others, insert a card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness, and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope and address it to: Pictorial Postmarks, followed by the Name of the Station, Address, City, State, ZIP+4® Code, as listed next to the postmark.”
Before closing, IF you have been setting any kind of goals for completing BY MEMORIAL DAY, time is fast approaching! In just a few days the long weekend will be here and there are five more tomorrows for the rest of this month! This includes our starting out earlier this month with our Setting Aside Letter Writing Time May 2021 Challenge. See you back here on Sunday.
