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.

OK. I't sbad enough we have to READ in J-Land. And now you're gonna make ke think too! :-) Frankly hon, if the people drive there half as badly as they drive here, a book just ain't gonna help. :-) And speaking of mail, I've been recieving 3 magazine titles I NEVER order OR paid for for a YEAR now. I stopped by my old place a little earlier and picked them uo. Odd. I'm babbling again. OK. I'm gone. :-)

Driving for Dummies!!! LOL That would probably make you millions of bucks! I have a few people I know I'd buy one for. :P

Maybe if you can make a movie out of that driving book you can convince those dumb drivers to pay attention. YOU should send those creditors a bill for wasting your time (I kidded my eye doctor about that once for making me wait for more than an hour and he didn't charge me for the visit, lol). Sorry, about the returned Mike letters but I'm glad you got the jewelry box and the thank you notes.

I love getting mail too! Did you ever have a mail box in college? How exciting and it was to view a letter thru the window! I have never quite gotten over the thrill of someone taking the time to put pen to paper and then stamp on envelope and then make it to the PO!
