The Last Bundle by Diane Ogden
I started this blog in 2007 at which time I was delivering newspapers, The Onion being one of them, out of an old warehouse in downtown Madison. Before that I had a respected licensed day care in another city which I attempted to move to Madison. But then similar to Jr. High bullies, some State Workers, of course women, decided to halt all necessary paperwork for my re-licensing. Me, not being a fighting individual, moved on past it all. The old "cant fight city hall" cliche ran through my head day and night and was right. To make a sad story short, I lost everything. One day someone offered me a paper route. That meant I could eat again, so I took it. I drove bundles through blizzards, rain storms, torrid heat, backaches, broken air conditioners, broken car heaters, and on and on. The papers got me back on my feet, oddly after seven years I am hoping they don't take me off my feet.
I will be missed I am sure of this fact. Because I told people they looked like a certain movie "star" at least once a day for seven years. There isn't any compliment higher, given to a passerby unless they are homeless and you hand them a $20 dollar bill. I was a mere newspaper "star" but the masses wont ever forget me. My Grand daddy taught me how to make people remember me! Make THEM shine like a star. Try it and I guarantee success and happiness all the way around. That would be my Happy News for the day.
