  • Bent Turning Wheels today

    Just received the May Turning Wheels today and while pulling it out of the mailbox I find that instead of ot being rolled up length ways as usual that it was bent accross the spine to fit in my box My Postal person has been very good at not damaging my various types of literature and wonder what had happened today. I live in a small rural town of 900and they have always been very approachable. So I go in the office and find a new face behind the counter and I nicely educated her on the different bindings of my Turning Wheels and the Rod and Custom that were in my box today. She was very sorry and seemed sincere on stating it wont happen again

          I have a great mail carrier. When I get one of my antique auto magazines, he hand carries them right up to my front door, so he won't bend them. Ordinarily, he puts my mail in the mailbox at the curb. He's a good guy.

            Last year I replaced my mail box with a new larger one and replaced (retired) my mail carrier with a new one that actually knows what DO NOT BEND TURNING WHEELS!!!

                  Geoff: If you received April on time but March has yet to appear, contact Cornerstone Registration for a replacement March issue. Obviously, your March issue was lost or destroyed. BP
                  We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                  G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                    Could you have had a substitute carrier?
