Jackpot!

jackpot035My daughter used to pick up the mail, walking down the two short flights of steps to our mailbox.

Now that she is away at college, the job is once again mine, and I fear I’m a bit of a laggard at it.

I’ll forget for days on end and then will unlock a box stuffed to the gills with supermarket specials, credit card solicitations and bills.

But yesterday the build-up yielded a JACKPOT — an assortment of four honest-to-goodness cards, largesse I never receive outside of Christmas anymore, and even that holiday has been migrating to email.

So hurrah for a throw-back day of good, old-fashioned snail mail. I may have to trot down those steps more often!

    Isn’t it great to get snail mail (when it’s a letter or post card that is!). That’ll lift your spirits for sure!!!!!

    Hi Susan, I just returned from Florida and would have sent you a post card but didn’t have your address. I’ll bring one to Book Club for your collection.
