I'm a day late, but since yesterday was Ronald Reagan's 100th Birthday, I wanted to share my one Ronald Reagan item that I own.
When I was a Senior in High School, we all got our little boxes of Graduation Announcements one day at lunch. Everyone had their notebooks out writing down who they were going to send an Announcement. Grandma, Aunt So and So, Uncle So and So, you get the drift. Then we started besting each other - Someone said, "I'm going to send one to the MAYOR!" Ha ha ha! We all laughed. Someone else said, "I'm sending one to the Governor!" Ha ha ha! So, I said, "I'm sending one to the PRESIDENT!" HA HA HA! That was a funny one! Then they dared me to do it. So, I did. What the heck, it was just a stamp (which back then was only 20¢!), so I addressed it to the White House and sent it out. Dare completed.
So, imagine my surprise when a few weeks later, I came home to find this in my mailbox!
And, this inside!
When I took it to school the next day, everyone was dumbfounded that I got a card from the President! And, they were bummed that they didn't send an Announcement too. Ha on them!
Since I got this, I still refer to Mrs. Reagan as Uaucy Reagau. (ya-sooey Rah-gooey). Weird N's, huh?
Have you ever had any Presidential mail?
*I am fully aware that this was an automated signature and mailed by some underling at the White House. I know Nancy didn't sit in the bed at night and hand address cards to peon High School kids.
