Thanks for the mail you sent. It was lovely to have SENIOR CITIZEN OFFER plastered on the incoming envelope in large capital letters. By the way, my eyesight isn’t quite that bad, but it made it easier for the neighbors to read as I carried it into the house.
I noticed the extra generous offer of a “gardening bag” with a paid subscription. As lovely as the khaki green pouched tote is, it comes at a time when my mid-section is obscuring my view of the ground, the joints have started to seize up and I’ve made peace with and have come to love weeds. Timing is everything, eh?
Though my family is filled with proverbial green thumbs, the two assigned to me have no magic… or color. Even my life-like fake indoor plants appear near death when covered with dust, which is often. Okay…okay…which is ALWAYS!
So dear Sunset, of the six universal emotions your letter drug me through… anger, fear, disgust, amusement, sadness and surprise… I have decided to stick with amusement. Even though at an 84% savings and appearing you are nearly giving me your magazine, I am choosing the 100% savings option.
Thanks for thinking of me…. ellen
