Copy of undelivered to Catherine Melle Ferret

An Anne L Braunschweig secret travelled from New Mexico to the SEOUL SECREt eXCHANGE in Korea...exchanges then travelled to Catherine Melle Ferret in Firminy, France but where returned to me in Sydney, Australia, NOT DELIVERABLE AS ADDRESSED. Is the Return To Sender sticker French? Let me know if you recognize where it is from.

Reviewing your comments, Kat_e_rina,      >shame that machines do not have the ability to read the complexity of signals that consitute ART IN THE MAIL.  Wonder what wonders float endlessly like phantoms that cannot excape the mortuary office of Dead Letters<     yours, mine

3 more mailings to the USA have been returned!

I KNOW the addresses are correct...the USPS machine is being very particular...

and I will now have to pay double postage.

One mailing was sent November now I understand why it never arrived. :-(

MomKat - yeah, I thought it was too mono-lingual and non-French to be a French sticker, and it couldn't be an Australian sticker because Australians always go day/month/year.  Why it went from Sydney, which is where I posted it from, to the States instead of France is strange.  Am sure that I probably put an Australian stamp on to accompany the original US postage stamp, but, maybe I didn't.  Things get a little whacky when you are doing two hundred and fifty packages of varying proportion.
You've reassured me that the address in Firminy is probably correct, and, yeah, will take your advise and put the thing in a fresh, clean wrapper.  The gum may have been chewed, but the wrapper will be clean.

No, the sticker is from US Postal Service machine.

There is an address for "Catherine" that is to "France", 

but the US Postal machine read the address under it as well and

cancelled the ability to put its little paper bar code aross the lower section for mailing...sigh.

I had four mailings returned to me last week with this same "Not deliverable" USPS sticker.

No humans working there, just the machine ...put in new envelope and clean/clear address! Good luck Terry!
