The Wonders of an International Economy

Today we had a customer call us to order a book.

The customer was calling from Spain.

A friend of hers from Ireland had found the book on our website and told her about us because the customer could not find any place in Spain that carries the title.

The publisher is in Spain.

The distributor we order the book from is in Minnesota.

To get the book, they order it from Spain where it is shipped to Mexico and then on to Minnesota.

From Minnesota it will get shipped to Colorado so we can send it back to Spain to someone who probably lives within an easy drive of the publisher.

Bizarre.

  1. So what did he do to deserve loosing his head?

    In our house, I don’t think there is a St. Joseph statue that hasn’t had at least a head or hand glued back on.

  2. I’m thinking maybe the problem had to do specifically with which St. Joseph statue you used. This is the first I think I’ve seen St. Joseph without the child Jesus.
