Blog challenge (and a plug)

I've been challenged by Chris. Who was challenged by Michelle, who saw it on a blog who saw it on another blog. (you can follow the trail, or hurry up and read below)...

The deal is, the first 5 people who comment will receive something in the mail that I've made.

The stickler, is that if you comment, you have to do the same on your blog. Cool?

"Snail mail" is a lost art, I believe, and I love to send and receive real mail (I got a surprise package from my sister last week, and it made my week!). Molly (dearest of dears, who has a poetry at the Roseville Barnes & Noble this Thursday night at 7:30; be there or be square) sends things via real mail all the time. Notes, cards, trinkets. When I get something in the mail from Molly (because it really happens so frequently), my husband says, "You got a Molly in the mail today." And (though she thinks I should recycle) I keep every piece of mail she sends me because she will soon be a famous writer, and her letters will be worth something. Rejoice in sharing the love of fun things in the mail.

I win! I guess I could bring back my old blog, but no one would check it anyway.

I love mail:) However, I don't enjoy the cost of postage going up every year!

Um, I heard that poetry reading starts at seven... (anon so as not to add more to the to-do list)

Am I too late. Darn.

Dang. Who doesn't love real mail? Although, I don't know what I would make if I would have won!
