I opened the mailbox this evening and out popped a magazine. With my name on it. Somebody paid to give me a Cosmos. Anyone who knows me would say what?! You?? In the past my Mom has given me Good Housekeeping. I can live with that though most of them includes recipes that I will not touch with a ten foot pole. But um, Cosmos for me who is not fashion conscious or stylish?? Mother Earth News or maybe Grit would have been what she would have chosen if she had been my old Mom. I am not sure. I guess the sister that Mom stays with is not checking to see what Mom spends her money on? Anyway I laughed all the way down the driveway cause I really wanted to sit down and scream with sadness.

Oh, that's disappointing. Vince bought me a magazine subscription once but we didn't read the fine print and it was sent for several years. We didn't realise it was being automatically charged to our credit card. We must have had more money than sense at the time. :(

@sallypup So glad I read this i have been receiving without knowing who ordered it and tonight my sister told me on the phone she had a vanity fair magazine come to her in the mail today! I am wondering if it is a rich person lie that person who I heard on the news paid 166 THOUSAND dollars to pay people who had layaways at a store and the diamond that shows up every year on the Salvation Army kettle that shows up in completely different areas of the country each year!

@hereandthere I agree. My Mom is 95 so if she sent the mag subscription she has really super lost it. I saw an article about taking photos of your posterior. And how to make it look more appealing as you took the photo.

You know, I think I just figured something out. Waaaaaay back in the day, Cosmopolitan used to be a fairly staid women's magazine. Amelia Earhart even wrote for it a few times. Grandma is probably still thinking it's like that. Though, reading any of their covers, it's obviously not your cup of tea. I should send you a subscription to Victoria Magazine to compensate.
