You've got mail

Or maybe not.
Spied this amazing bit of Cajun engineering on my way to the bank . . .
What do you suppose the story was behind the dangling-from-a-rope mailbox?

Say my name

Watching "Something to Talk About" movie tonight and noticed the Julia Roberts character (Grace) propose the Junior League ladies use their own name in their cookbook instead of their husband's names. My volunteer group dropped the practice as late as 1982. It seems so ancient that a woman was known as Mrs. John Thibodeaux instead of Marie Boudreaux Thibodeaux. And to think a second wife would also be Mrs. John Thibodeaux?
My high school reunion committee easily located the guys but the women were more difficult to find because their names changed. As I reached a "certain age", I realized it would be silly to change my name were I to ever marry. (Ha.)
While I am not declaring a lady should keep her maiden name, being Mrs. John Thibodeaux is just plain ol' stoopid.
And when the hell did I stop being "Miss" and become "Ms"? I dislike both.
I am,
(just plain ol') Skitzo Leezra.
