When I was a kid, going to the mailbox was always exciting. Even the junk mail was great, of course back then I don’t think we had near as much junk mail as we do these days. And let’s face it, as a kid you don’t worry about the bills.
But the best part wasn’t the junk mail, it was the cards or letters addressed directly to me. Before e-mail or text messaging or Instagram or Facebook, there was the regular old U. S. Mail. Birthday card and letters would always bring excitement and anticipation.
