It Bears Repeating




http://inawordtoo.typepad.com/blog/2013/02/my-life-as-an-l.html

What happens when the address you memorized years ago suddenly rearranges itself time after time after time and you suspect that it is either in limbo or someone else is enjoying all the mail you meant for your friend? How can we turn back time? How can we correct the wrong of a mind that has a mind of its own? How do I get my letters, gifts and card back, so that I might resend them to the intended recipient? Silence on the other end is a sure sign that the friend believes you have abandoned them. Is there a remedy? In other words . . . HELP!





When I finally got it right I had the nerve to change it. I cut out a little rectangle and wrote the wrong numbers. SMH in dismay. Will HR4 7NE PLEASE respond? I've been sending mail to HR7 4NE. Has it reached you?

My life as an L can be hell.

Sincerely sincere,

L
P.S. There's more. Poor me.

    1. LOL! I have to embarrass her from time to time. It keeps her humble.

      I hope so too, my friend. I might be up to two months worth of mistakes. The returned Christmas card--from Down Under--was a clue. it came home TWICE.

      Incoming was two postcards. Thanks, everyone. I can see daylight again. Six pieces in out bag for tomorrow. :)

      All hail Caesar, y'all!

    1. You are one of the best cheerleaders, my lovely buddy, but you are more likely to get published. I hope you will. Name one good book that was written overnight. Slow and steady wins a publishing contract.

      Have you seen The Most Excellent Marigold Hotel?" I read the book. The movie is beautiful. I recommend it.

      Write on.

  3. I recognize some of those envelopes but not all of them. I've been ill for a couple of weeks but I'm getting back into the swing. I'm sorry I haven't sent much mail. I've been working on something arty for you. Hopefully I'll get it in the post tomorrow.

  4. Thank you for checking in, HR4 7NE. Am wearing a veil as I type this. Such shame! Shame makes me hide my scarlet cheeks. I still can't that believe I made such a mess of your address repeatedly. And while I am confessing, I might as well tell this: The blonde at the post office told me that the new postal rules stated: all mail to Australia must bear UK on the very last line or it wouldn't reach its destination. I thought I knew better and asked "since when?" She pointed her pearl polished nail to the space after Australia and asked, "Do you want it to get there? Do you want me to write it for you?" Wh-y-y-yy? I didn't know that people still peed in other people's Wheaties.

  5. My dear Limner that postal woman was rude and how dare she forget her manners , you know my grandmother wore pearls and always had her hair done and always told me "Never ask a lady her age or to borrow her fountain pen " such style my granny huh ? I would have asked her being the intense person I can be , why would I want you to write UK I am perfectly capable of writing UK thank you very much .... Not to worry she and her pearl polished finger can bite it ...LOL.
