Now I must admit that my mailbox always has something
waiting for me at the end of each day,
granted it's usually junk mail, bills and an occasional
magazine, but I still love to check it.
Mail delivery has changed a great deal over the years...
from the early Pony Express days to
the more efficient and speedier delivery we are
currently used to,
and everything in between.
My fondest mail memories are those of my
childhood, when you would eargerly await
the mail's arrival hoping there just might be
something for you
(maybe that secret decoder ring you mailed away for).
I am as guilty as most these days and do
most of my bill paying online and much of my
correspondence is via email,
but I still
enjoy sending out Christmas cards,
Birthday greetings and of course
I am overjoyed when I actually recieve
a note from a friend or card from
a loved one in my mailbox so I plan on joing
with Suzanne over at 'Colorado Lady'
in her year long challenge to send
at least one handwritten piece of mail
out to a friend each month.
Hop over to her blog to read all the details
and join us before your mailbox starts
to look like these...
sadly neglected and under used!
I happen to have a 'mail lady'
She's a real sweetheat and always gets
out of her truck to bring me my mail when it
won't fit in my box
(none of those pick up at post office notes for her).
So in order to insure her job security I'm taking
on this challenge, if you'd like a piece of snail mail
from me simply email me your address and I'll put you
on my list!
Here's hoping your mailbox is filled
with lovely letters and less junk!
