I've had a pretty decent beginning to this year's mail tally, both incoming and outgoing aka "Other People's Mail," since it is mail to and from other people. *giggle* It's almost tit for tat, kinda-sorta. In essence, it's rotating at a steady, do-able pace, for which I am grateful. My handwriting is still shaky, more often than not, but vanity aside, it's mostly legible. If it isn't so, please let me know.
This is long over-due OPM, so I apologize. All on its own, the prize fell between the footboard and the mattress, hiding in plain-ish sight; then I couldn't find the mailer. To make amends, I added a tiny extra bit of goodness. By the time we'd had a meal and done our food shopping yesterday, I was in no mood to search for the post office "up north." When JC asked, "Where to next?" I replied, "Home." I'd had a long day and our post office is "down south." I used today to recuperate from yesterday's spine-jarring trip.
Somehow I managed to put pen to paper, and wrote yet another piece of OPM. Such sacrifices must be done for the good of written correspondence. I am determined to do my part.
Since the last piece of OPM was just as much fun as ever, I did it again. Yes, I wrote another letter and discovered I had a lot more to say. There were just as many questions as there was shared information. The fun carried over to the envelope where my "minimum embellishment" motivation was rooted in the little circle on the left--the one between the fruited stickers. It's from the good people at Flow Magazine. They've begun to include women with all hues, from other climes and cultures on their pages. It's exciting!
OPM is finer than faerie hair. Dorothy Height graced my mail box a second time yesterday. That stamp is as much about the woman as it is about her hats, and the color purple. Those cute little hats atop my lettered pate make me laugh. Thanks Jean! You're Number One when it comes to pushing the envelopes. I Googled: Purple Hat Society. Everyone knows about the Red Hat Society, right? Well, the Purple Hat Society deserves a holler too. Consider this one.
