On Thursday I received a padded A4 envelope in the post that contained a copy of this Doris Day Collector’s Edition magazine sent to me by Glo/Porcelain Rose, who sadly stopped blogging nearly a year ago. It’s a glossy magazine celebrating an American icon. Glo’s card with it said…A different kind of sofa-lounging reading material! Couldn’t resist! Merry Christmas, Mike.
If you’re slightly confused I should add that Glo posted this to me back on 7th December so it’s taken a while to arrive. I would also point out that she knows that I’m a longtime Doris Day fan and back in 2013 she sent me a postcard from The Cypress Inn in Carmel, California where you can enjoy Doris’ Signature Tea everyday from 1 to 4 pm, husbands and pets welcome!
On Friday the post included two envelopes of interest. One was from Jim, a longtime friend, which contained a birthday card. That confused me as my birthday was three months ago. I then noticed that he had posted it, first class, on 21st October, and he only lives a few miles away.
The other envelope was from Nikki over in Southern California and also contained a birthday card. I was even more confused and then when I looked at the envelope astounded to see that she’d posted it to me on 19th October 2015! It was correctly addressed but someone had written Return to sender! on the back so goodness knows where it went or where it’s been for the past fifteen months.
Have a good week!
