Two ruminations rumbled through the grey-matter this week.
#1. I really need to write one of those "Dummy" books for drivers. Some people have no freak'in common sense when it comes to driving. Maybe, a book would help.
#2 I usually don't get much mail. Not even bills. Most of my mail is junk. I received all kinds of stuff this week. Lots of junk, to be sure. But, I also received 3 bills which had serious errors in them. I am left to spend countless hours getting it rectified.
I received 3 more returned letters sent to Mike back in July. I stopped writing at the beginning of August when I found out he was returning. Hopefully, these will stop finding their way to me soon.
I received 3 surprises in the mail. The jewelry box from Andy and two handwritten "Thank You" notes from my nephews, my brother Chris' sons.
I guess the adage everything happens in 3's is true! The post office has now proved it conclusively.
