I Have A Mystery To Solve!
Do you like a good mystery? ☺
Over four years ago, I rented a hog farm in South Dakota. The landlords of that farm recently called to let me know that I received a package from Reimen publications! Reimen publishes Country, Country Woman, Birds and Bloom and Backyard Living magazines. I subscribed to every one of those magazines while I lived on that farm. I couldn't imagine what the package contained but since I entered lots of contests back then, I thought that I had won something! But after four years? I couldn't wait until the landlords forwarded my package so I could find out what was inside! Well, lo and behold the package arrived with this farm/dinner triangle inside and a thank you note for submitting something that they chose to publish! But what was it? And after 4 years? Was this package lost somewhere all this time?
I wrote a lot back then and I know I submitted several pieces of writing to them because their magazines are reader written. It may have been something as simple as a gardening tip but maybe even an article but I simply don't know what it was! Ha-ha! I'd love to be able to say, "I've been published!" But I feel pretty silly about not knowing WHAT I wrote! ☺
I wrote to Reimen to present the mystery and they wrote back to say that they are working on it. I find the timing very interesting... I had just been telling a few people that I felt like I could write again once we get out to the quiet of the farm. And now that I'm moving back to a farm, I could certainly use a dinner bell for calling Micah from the back 40!
I'm glad life has funny little mysteries like this! It makes life interesting!
Thanks for coming by! ♥
