I was just looking at the huge stack of magazines I have yet to read and was thinking about my obsession with subscribing to and reading them. I think at the moment I have 10 subscriptions with 4 of them being gifts. Thank You Mom, Andi, Jennifer and Janeen. I love getting magazines in the mail and have been for as long as I can remember. It occurred to me today that my love affair with magazines began with my Grandparents giving my sisters and I a subscription to “Highlights” magazine for children every Christmas. We loved receiving our own magazine in the mail and we poured over the magazine every month as soon as it came. My favorite was Goofus and Gallant cartoon but we were all very competitive with the Hidden Picture puzzle. None the less we read it cover to cover. I loved it. I still get a little thrill when I am at the Doctors and I spy a copy of “Highlights” in the waiting room. I walk right over to the children’s section plop myself into the little chair and read it. Thank you Monty and Papa!
Goofus was so naughty. I loved him!
