Remember When: Postal

Sometimes bad days change quickly. Like when a surprise package shows up in the mailbox.
That was how it happened on Friday.
 
This is what was in my box.
As a die hard Elvis fan a vintage magazine is a great gift. It came from my friend in Florida. We have been friends since 1965. She knows me well.
 
Thank you, Lydia.  
 
Also in the mail was the latest issue of the "Tombstone Times."
 
 
Including my latest article. I've been writing for them for over ten years and it still exciting to see my articles come out in print. You can learn more about this publication at "Tombstone Times"

And one last postal arrival was the latest issue of "Wild West" magazine.

I don't have an article in this issue but I have in the past.
 
All-in-all a good day at the post office
 
Tell us about a surprise that showed up in your mail box.
