Lately AARP has been sending me a new membership card monthly, I don't reply, so another month goes by and here comes another membership card. Now I did join AARP long time ago, didn't read their magazine, didn't find any benefits that I just could not live without so I never renewed. Now why don't they get the idea that I am not interested.
Another annoying bit of mail was all the address labels I get. I finally started replying without sending money asking to be taken off their mailing lists. I have enough return address labels that will last me way beyond my years left here on earth. I have even used them to identify my books, casserole dishes, anything I need to get back and yet I still have an abundant supply. I have ones with dogs, cats, snowflakes, lady bugs, frogs, flags, flowers, whales, butterflies and I can't remember the rest. I sent 23 requests in one month to 23 different charities asking to be taken of their lists. I think they are finally getting the message. I will only need more labels should I decide to move and that is not likely.
I take the Sunday paper only, just cause it has the store ads, not that I want to buy anything from them but once in awhile I do. But then on Tuesday I get a mailbox full of paper that I just drop in the recycle bin, one is CVS Pharmacy, but then I read that one on Sunday, oh and then, all the pizza coupons, from Pizza Parlors that I don't care for their pizzas plus they don't deliver way out here beyond the sidewalk.
Every week I fill a large bag or two of just junk mail or advertisements I don't want. Now there is a place where we could save a tree or even a forest.
I forgot ... semi monthly I get a card from the Neptune Society for me to set up and appointment to make arrarangement for my cremation. Do they know something I don't. Every other month they are pushing me to make that decision.
