The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

My daughter Kiralyn likes to make paper cranes. But what to do with them after you've made them? Her solution is to make paper cranes out of the junk mail that comes with pre-paid business reply envelopes and then send the cranes back with cheery notes for the people who open the business reply mail. Here's today's note:
Dear Valued-Employee-ofChase-Bank-Services,

Thank you for devotedly opening mail for so long. You have been awarded 2 paper cranes made out of Chase Bank credit card mail. These 2 cranes are unique to others of their kind in that they are nearly identical twins. They were made out of the same piece of mail, and have been together for their entire lives. Please keep the tradition alive by displaying them proudly where ever you go. Your contribution to the process makes a difference.

Most Sincerely,

Your Appreciative Fans


If you would like your own decorative paper cranes and a cheery note, send junk mail and a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Kiralyn Brakel
3121 Wanamaker
Waterford MI 48328.

When my girls were little we'd let Kira answer the phone, and if it was a solicitor, as soon as they asked her a question [like is your mother there] she'd say, "Hold on I'll get my sister." And then Kelsey would listen for a bit and as soon as they asked her a question she'd say, "I think you actually need to talk to my sister," and she'd hand the phone back to Kira. The rule was, if Diana or I started giggling before they did, they'd each get a quarter.

They almost always got the quarter!

You have updated a way to creatively respond to unwanted intrusions and solications from the toddler years to the teenage years. Back when my kids were real little a friend suggested a great way to handle soliciters. He suggested putting the kids on the phone and letting them talk to the soliciters. The conversation went something like, "who is your daddy?" "Do you like to color?" "What's a more gag? Does my mommy have one?" Frankly, Kiralyn's response is a more spiritually enlightened one but my friend's response was pretty amusing.

To those of you who commented, there is a follow up blog entry today that is just a hi-res photograph of today's actual letter and the slogan on the stationary that prompted it. You'll need to click on the letter to make it big enough to read. It is just bizarrely weird except she was giggling as she was writing it, so she knew she was being bizarrely weird and thought that was funny.

Those girls are sharp as tacks, Bruce. Handy, too. And they play golf quickly. Makes 'em hard to tape, at least if you want to see the first half of their throws...

Got to love that!!! Classic!!! Smart Girl!!! I usually shred them in my Binford 2000 junk mail shredder...but I think a interesting precedent could be in order here.

That is sweet. I might have to learn origami for that!
