Unusual Request...

So, I've saved sand from every beach trip my husband and have taken, and I display it in a vase in our bedroom with labels identifying the layers (similar to this: http://houseofwentworth.com/tag/diy-vacation-rituals/)

Somehow, I forgot to get some sand from Treasure Island when we were there in February. I'm wondering if anyone who will be visiting soon, or who lives there, would be willing to collect some and mail it to me. I would pay for the postage.

Weird request, I know. Don't know when we will make it back to the area, so I figure it doesn't hurt to ask!

Thanks!

Hahaha Tony! Not sure about the feasibility of shipping beer and meatloaf, but it would be my pleasure to buy you a cold one when you are here in September!
