Amusing postal mail.

Aside from small packages and neat surprises (like the crayon the Jude made for me!), incoming postal mail is either magazines/catalogs we subscribe/request, bills or junk. Today's mix:
- the September issue of Architectural Digest (Designers' Own Homes),
- a letter from my folks, and
- a come-on to join the NRA.

None of this is unusual, but the NRA invitiation cracked me up. It wasn't addressed to him.

I would have framed it if it had been addressed to the midget.

On a moving preparation note, yesterday's objective was completed aside from his desk. Still working on today's, and if I have the energy I'll make a chocolate raspberry cheesecake since I'm trying to use up frozen things anyway.

Silly postal mail
Shortly after I turned 21, I received my first "Join AARP" solicitation, complete with AARP card. Out of amusement, I taped it to the outside of my cubicle wall for those few observant folks who might get a chuckle out of it. I received the same packet every 3-4 months for about 2.5 years, and kept adding the new "membership" cards to my collection.

My favorite screw up though, has to be when my cousin received his draft card and was told to report during Viet Nam. He was barely a year old at the time.

This doesn't have anything to do with the post, but Happy Birthday!

Thank you. I was going to make a mass post (I share my birthday with tinder, digitalusrex, caffeinediary and greenisgood) about it yesterday but I got sidetracked. Will post pictures (none with me in them, I'm still training Himself to take pictures) later -- we visited oxymoron02 for the afternoon/evening and then later discovered that whatever law enforcement unit was directing traffic to detour around a multi-car accident (I'd bet the person driving the wrong way that caused it was drunk, as drinking is the unofficial state sport) uses plain flashlights, not the kind with translucent cones for greater visibility. Being virtually blinded while being directed onto some tiny rural road bearing all the traffic from the closed section of highway sucked, so it's been added to the list of places I'll donate money to if I ever come into a lot of money -- Lackland light sabers are pretty inexpensive and even we have one in our car's emergency kit.
