Wonder if the catalog has a Nose Cone that fits that shipping tube.

Dunno, but I recently read a great quote attributed to Reynolds:

I'd walk through fire for my kids. Well, maybe not fire, but a really, really humid room. But not too humid. Because my hair.

My poster has been lost in the Memphis distribution center for about a week now, after sitting in Denver about a week and taking about 2 weeks to go from Denver to Memphis.

I hope you get it! On a positive note, once it shows up, it will be a classic, and worth a lot!

This is the 2nd time in less than 6 months I've had a package "lost" in Memphis. Right now I have two packages coming from different directions that have been sitting there for nearly two weeks. Last time it was bad. A whole bin went missing. Many folks in my area didn't receive pension checks and various other checks and bills, etc. They found it after about 2 months. I've heard it's one of the worst hubs in the nation for that sort of thing.

Sorry you’ve had trouble. Maybe the USPS could just use Memphis to sort junk mail. That would be a good use of the facility.
