Nice Try...But It Didn't Work!

Even though Son Donald has moved out of the house he still occasionally gets mail here. Recently the carrier put this official-looking envelope in the mailbox:

Personal information changed to protect the innocent.

I took a picture of the envelope and sent it to Donald, asking him what he wanted me to do. Some time later he responded and asked me to open it. Inside was a Sample Transportation Certificate of Title and an invitation to come to a sale at the dealership where he bought his last car.

Donald said I could put this 'important' letter straight into the recycling bin. I did.

Five years ago today: Random Thoughts


  1. We also get advertising material in envelopes that look as if they are from an official source.

    The other day the postman rang the bell and said, "Is this letter for you? The name is obliterated."

    I told him my name is Victor.

    God bless.

    1. You have very smart postmen. I've never heard ours use big words like 'obliterated'.

  2. Your son is the same as my adult kids who sometimes get mail here at my house. They tell me to put it into the recycling bin. Only they use the "T" word...Trash. I think they are on to something, less junk mail to deal with.

    Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!
