Inside was a note that said "come see me, I want to give you a million dollars before I die"

Isn't the post office wonderful?
Kramer was right; we don't need the USPS.

Let's see it takes almost 100 years to get a postcard, thank God it wasn't a package.

This story is a hoax. Every few years around the holidays, newspapers print these goofy stories that make everyone melt. Give me a break.

easy... go to an antique shop, buy an old postcard, slip it into a mailbox during holiday season, and you have, like Mr Pink said, that too often recurring cheesy story.

Great idea. In fact, we have old postcards here. With that great faded fountain pen ink. I think I'll send one out and see what happens.
Nah, that would be 'cheesy'.:)

please, is this supposed to make us smile, say "awww the postal service is all about the human touch and getting mail to the rightful ownder no matter how long it takes"? My neighbors get more of my mail than I do, so I'm sure that card would have been thrown away years ago. Like most of my bills that are mis-delivered. Humbug.

God, I read these comments to figure out what people could find to say about a story like this. Most of you are seriously jaded. Yeah, could be a hoax, or may not be, but with all the crap we hear about in the news, it's a little nice to hear that some old lady's day may have been brightened. I think it is probably true. Probably was delivered in error to wrong person, and it ended up in some attic or antique store until some scavenger found it. How's that for logic?

Some mailmen keep mail from other people (which is stupid) and if this story is true, i bet you a mailmen kept it, i mean why else would it take so long to receive?
