What's That in My Mail Bag

Friday afternoon I heard the mailman drop the mail through the mail slot and clunk in the basket.  I waited a bit before I went in and gathered it up to give it a look see.  Sorting through my mail and some of Daddy's, I found a selection of catalogs that were rubber-banded together.  At the bottom of the stack was this.  Looks interesting and since I don't take or read Sports Illustrated my curosity was peaked.  The name on the label was a previous owner, I think a son,


 but what caught my attention...


was the date at the to of the magazine...February 7, 1966!  What in the world.  Right time of year to be delivered, just a few years late...43 years to be exact...

Where was this thing.  Did the post office move a machine and find this or something.  What a perplexing thing to find in your mail.  It purposely was put with my catalogs because it was in the rubber band.  Just makes you scratch your head.

That is just too bizarre. And begging to be sold on EBay.

That is so odd! I wonder what caused that. That is one of those mysteries that will never be solved.

How utterly odd!! LOL That's 43 yrs ago actually, I was born in 66 and as much as I'd love to be 34, sadly you mis-typed my friend!

You should report this to your local news channel, the OKC channels are always reporting on odd little stories like this.
