Special Delivery: Ecelctic Mail
Today we received a pile of mail which included a couple of
things that must have our new mailman chuckling and wondering: Who lives in this
First there was Self magazine, one that is definitely
geared to young (young) women. (I receive this magazine for free because of
something I joined, but I wish it would go away.)
The Self cover
lists explicit articles aimed at young female readers, and makes me think that
it should be sold in brown paper bags behind the counter where innocent eyes
can't get a look at it. This latest issue is the Fun Issue. Hmmm. .
Nestled right next to Self was a catalog for Helpful Products for
Independent Living. This includes pages of assistive devices that will
contribute to the quality of life for people who are older or who have a
disability. It's a wonderful source for helpful items and again not sure why we
get it. But this one I hold onto just in case. . .
We also get a lot of
political mail, from every side; invitations to go to "free" dinners to learn
more about a rosy financial future., Sale! Sale! Sale! catalogs, and the
onslaught of the holiday catalogs has already begun.
I wonder what will
happen to all of these goodies if the US Post Office goes out of business? I'm
not sure I will miss it
