Weekly Mail Call

So I really did fail this week, but I promise I had good reason to. First..I am finally feeling better after taking some antibiotics for an infection. They totally wiped me out! Which means....I am severely behind in sending out mail. But Sundays are good days to work on that.

Secondly, my brother was in town from Boston. There was an alumni rugby match at our Alma Mater and thus Saturday was spent watching men throw each other around on a field. It really is a rather fun sport to watch..though I missed the buzzer going off when someone scored (clearly I have watched too much Hockey!).

But after much consideration..I do believe I will start posting the weekly mail on Sundays. They seem to be the only day that I can find the time every week to do it. Also, it makes more sense as we still get mail on Saturday. Being that Sunday is the day without...I will post it then.

And without much further wait...



Look at all that wonderful mail!! I feel like I misplaced a few things, but my mail register says otherwise. So perhaps if I did misplace it...I also didn't record it.... I am hoping that is not the case.

**Special note... I am considering mailing a Frisbee and doing sort of an add then pass thing. One would start it off...write something on the back, then pass it along to someone else and so on..until the back was filled at which point it would be sent back to the original sender. Honestly, I think the drawn/written on frisbee makes a GREAT conversation piece. SO, anyone who is interested in such a thing be sure to leave a comment below. I figure this way, we will make sure the frisbee goes to people who are willing to pay the postage (under $2). For the purposes of this experiment we will only be sending it within the US..something tells me sending it outside the country would be a lil tricky. We could ever do multiple frisbees if anyone else would like to have one to keep. Think of the possibilities!**

  4. Glad you're feeling better...antibiotics do that to me as well!

    I'm not sure I'm up to the Frisbee exchange but I like the idea of cooperative mail art...I've been thinking about doing something like this for awhile....this gets me thinking...

  5. Katie- I don't know if I am awesome or if it is more the people who send me such mail..cause I think THEY are awesome!

    Wolfey- I was pretty sure that was you. I was going to double check my address log just to be sure. So thanks for the clarification. You saved me having to search my log!

    Dave- Cooperative mail art is really cool right? I cannot wait to see what you come up with, and I am really glad that this post has inspired you a bit. =)
