Surviving my latest trip to the mailbox


When I opened the mailbox and took out the large manila envelope and spied the address label from my former employer, I imagined the worst, someone had finally decided to start meddling with the pension that I haven’t even started taking yet!

I only won an Honorable Mention, but seeing as how it’s a nationwide competition, I still felt honored.

Many thanks again to Rosemary Parrillo and the rest of the crew at Inside Jersey for making me look good!

The latest magazine article was previously published on Roamin’ Gnomials, and may be read HERE.
