    One more of my personal silly 'foibles' is a dislike of otherwise dealing with actual 'junk mail' in my actual postal mailbox. AS SUCH, whenever I do get one of those envelopes otherwise trying to sell me something I don't want or need, IF'ns their sender also has the courtesy to include a 'postage paid return mail' envelope in there with whatever the "DON'T WAIT incredible offer" is...

    Well, let's just say that I *do* appreciate the services of all the fine and hardworking folks at the United States Postal Service too. THUSLY, since after all the senders of the junk mail are theoretically paying the USPS for their work anyway (both ways, in fact) I kinda try to make a point of stuffing *something* (anything that is, than whatever the junkmailers want to find in those envelopes when they reopen 'em) and leave it at the mailbox for my own postal carrier to duly collect/return. I also usually try to make sure that whatever I stuff the return envelope with weighs *at least* twice as much as what it was intended for, in the hope that they get charged a little extra for that too... ;-) ;-)

    THIS ONE arrived just the other day, with a form letter wanting to sell me "funeral insurance". By the time they get it back, they'll discover it now contains an entire cigarette carton box, suitably snipped into smaller pieces that'd otherwise fit in was the handiest thing on top of my recycle bin...cracker or soda cartons also get regularly snipped up and mailed back in the same fashion, likewise things that tend to be handy in my recycle bin. Even more funner are the occasional days where I get *two* similar junkmail envelopes and can send each others advertising paper (w/my own potentially actual ID info snipped off, of course) back to the other one in the next day's outgoing mail... <wink><giggle>

      Ed (Vynil) you *ABOLUTELY* get my point...!! <LOLOL>

      (and my apologies to everybody else here, for the post of what I'm now realizing isn't anything nearly "collectable", "rare", or even now "mine" (until my postal carrier collects it in the morning that is) so/and I truly hope all y'all will forgive me the diversion/opportunity to vent...?

      Thanks too to Watchsearcher, Broochman, & fortapache for your oh so quick <love it> button punches anyway...I trust all y'all understand what I was getting at, too...?? <giggle>

      Thanks also to Newfld, vetraio50, Hoot60, yougottahavestuff, & Cokeman1959 for the <love it>s!! Glad y'all can also appreciate my sometimes ever so slightly "bent" sense of humor...?? :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
