Fru-Gal Column August 19

A man who took my class last year came up to me at another event to tell me what his five year old daughter told him. Since taking my class and reading my column he has signed up for many of the freebies that I mention. His daughter runs to the mailbox everyday to see what the mailman has left for her. Even though most of the items are not for children she still says it feels like Christmas everyday when she goes to get the mail. I tell people what great stuff I get for free but most don’t believe me. This week I wrote down what I actually received in my mailbox for FREE. Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus.
