By the way, the state abbreviation for Alaska is AK not AL.  AL is for
Alabama.  Not a big deal.

One time a book I ordered took 3 months to get delivered because it was 
bouncing around Alabama.  The person who took my order had done the same 
thing.. at some point in the mail system somebody recognized the ZIP code 
and corrected the address.  That was a long wait for a book.
