First up this month it’s a birthday card and Mother’s Day card for my mom. Her birthday is the 13th, which just happens to fall on Mother’s Day this year. Both cards were in the mail on Monday. Atta boy Lewis! Forgetting mom is a cardinal sin! Remember, Don King used to have perfectly normal hair until he forgot Mother’s Day one year.
Then in June it’s more about dad. On June 9th my dad will celebrate his 89th birthday. The next day, mom and dad celebrate their 68th anniversary. Then on June 17th, it’s Father’s Day. By my count, that’s 3 more cards I have to grab from the drug store.
When I grabbed the cards for my mom last week I also bought a book of stamps. I don’t know how much it costs to send a card to Lethbridge. I just throw $3 worth of stamps on each envelope when I mail them out. A few of years ago I got one of the cards I sent to my mom dropped back into my mailbox for insufficient postage. I don’t want that to happen again, so I just play it safe, knowing $3 should be more than enough.
The rest of the year my card purchases are few and far between. For the next 10 months my trips to the drug store will be strictly for prescriptions!
