Me and my Dad agreed a long time ago that we're both really going to miss when you open a can of coffee with a can opener and that little puff of coffee flavored air comes out and how that ritual is nearly historical now. Replaced by a seal approved by our friends at the Arthritis Foundation.
Same thing clippings. My Mah is a master of clipping sending. In college, she sent me The Funnies. Since I stopped getting the Tribune during the week, she's back to filling envelopes with items of interest.
I was going thru the Sunday Trib myself yesterday and guess what? I started ripping things out for other people. An article for Shish. An item about curing chapped hands for Rosemary at the Economy Shop. The Michael's coupon for Florence.
I guess it's genetic. This newsprinted 'thinking of you'.
