As a child it was so exciting to get mail directly addressed to you....maybe a letter from Grandma in Florida or a postcard from a traveling aunt, certainly birthday cards...all handwritten sentiments.
Not so much today!
Political notices...sorry, I already said junk mail!
And did I say bills?
But every once in a while the excitement comes back.
Today, my mail included:
a wedding save-the-date card for the daughter of old college friends who thought she'd never 'settle' down.
a check for $14.62 that AT&T had owed me for 2+ years
a notice that my AARP membership has expired
1 catalog for sailing accessories...?
a discount card for an oil change
the electric bill
2 charity requests with address labels & my name was misspelled on all of them
Most excitedly, a handwritten thank you note from my grandson for our contribution to his baseball team...sweet and a reminder of the past.
Ahhhh, the good ole days!
