The Mailman Cometh, #SoCS 3/23/19

 

Mail is an event of major proportions according to Mimi, my black lab/coon hound cross. The first of the month brings bills but now that we are approaching the end of the month, its all junk. And since a lot of us receive and pay bills on line, is the mail man a dying thing? Who writes a real letter anymore. Not many that are under the age of 60. Sadly I feel its a dying art form.

But Linda Hill’s challenge for this Stream of Consciousness Saturday leads us to describe our last piece of mail.

Well according to the Dispatch Extra, the local grocery store is now in the furniture business since spring is actually starting to show up. Various types of lawn chairs and awnings have discount prices for the grand opening of the yearly garden center being set up in the parking lot. They also have gas or charcoal grills for a fun outdoor experience, plus lots of flowers.

Then at the Mattress Outlet they are having a huge floor model closeout. Really? How do you have model of a mattress? More foam, less foam….

And Lowes is having a sale on the new models of lawn mowers. Again, why models. Its an engine with deck and 4 wheels with a rotating blade. It cuts grass.

The want-add section has an add for a lost dog. 1,000.00 reward. So sad. We do love our animals and periodically they can escape their housing areas.

Then on the upswing, Brenda and Jim are getting married in 6 weeks down at the park by the river. That could be interesting…no shelters there. Better hope it doesn’t rain.

Not really much else in the mail today. Although the warmth is bring out the tree killing process for multiple spring add. Almost as bad as Christmas.

So as you go about your conscious day of Saturday, remember to be kind to man and best alike. Kindness is a gift of gentleness, love and peace that reaches down to the soul.

  1. Ah, yes, your mail looks like my mail. I do agree, and I do feel sad, snail mail is an art that seems to be lost. My youngest though has a few friends that they write back and forth faithfully. She’s inspired to keep the art of letter writing alive. That warms my heart, and I love getting cards from and sending cards to my kids. Happy Sunday to you!

  2. All junk mail here in Lititz, PA too. In fact, I even get a lot of my bills online. I occasionally get a thank you card actually written on paper with a pen (or sometimes even a crayon if it is from a grandchild), but no actual letters.
