mail order magic...

Five weeks later and I just received a watch stem from Bulgaria that I ordered from eBay (ten bucks including shipping) for one of my Russian watches.  Reminds me of the days when I was a kid and would mail in cereal box tops for a prize of some kind.  The delivery time was usually listed as 6-8 weeks.  88,95,78,0,B

A watch stem from Bulgaria to Texas for $10, simply amazing!

Those were the good old days. Too bad they do not have that magazine anymore. I might have written a story. But that was a really good capsule landing. (My father worked on the beginnings of the space program in l952 and '53). The future holds a lot of promise. But I will miss it.

shawn...no doubt Trump will keep harping on his unfounded claims of mail in voter fraud along with all his other bullshit - instead of taking definitive action in regard to the pandemic. How many more will die on his watch?

Did you watch the latest Axios interview with tRump..he says (about the pandemic) .."It is what it is"? And now millions of people are facing evictions with no help in sight.
Steve Daines' latest ad is just sickening. We are heading full bore for the cliff, thanks to the GOP. tRump is crazy, but he could have been booted out and yet he was not. I think Putin has blackmail material on nearly every Republican in office.
The Trumpkins have been hypnotized. Not just brainwashed but literally hypnotized. This is why I have not had television in my home for fourteen years. They do not call it Programming for no reason.

Mail order magic turned into politics... too bad.

You can thank idiot Trump supporters for that...
