A Weird Little Universe in a Manilla Envelope

I love to receive mail. And today was a banner mail day here at the Muffin Tin I received both an explanation of my dental benefits and an invitation to a wedding shower for SmartyPants that is being thrown by someone I've never heard of before. And at work my newest order from Sunshine Yarns arrived. Hand-dyed fine-gauge sock yarn: score!

Oh, oh and also. Also, I received a prize from Lord of the Barnyard for winning a little contest he sometimes hosts on his blog. I can't really disclose the contents of the Prize Pack but I can tell you the prize was not poo, which, in the back of my mind, I had feared. Instead there was some curious and puzzling items, including some relics that bespoke of a past relationship the farmer enjoyed with Up With People!, which I had previously thought existed only as a punchline for jokes. Yes. The mind boggles. Anyway, it's all lovely. Thanks, Lord of the Barnyard.

That's very flattering seeing how most of the prize was made up of some mismatched mystery bolts.

I was a People to People person myself, but I never had business cards. You're an enigma, Farmer Drew.
