Look what my parrot got in the mail today!

Since almost every worthy cause that’s gotten my name and address has sold it or pestered me to death, I decided to use his name when I sent a request for free stickers from PETA. That was about two months ago, and today this rather interesting magazine arrived addressed to...guess who?

SP and several of my husband's friends and acquaintances rented this house back in the 1970's in an attempt to save rent while they were going to college. SP moved out at approximately 1975...and we've been getting her junk mail ever since.

Herewith, #1 on my list
