...as Jingles P. Jones. "Hey, Wild Bill, wait fer me!"
I have a weird memory about that; it makes no sense
and if someone else posted it, I 'd dismiss it out-of-hand,
jusy saying its some kind of confusion; can 't be.
We all know that the mail is not delivered on Sundays. It was not then, either.
In 1951, this show advertized, for quite a while, that in contemplation
of Wild Bill 's being a US Deputy Marshal
, the show offered for sale to the public,
identification as such with a badge of office, bound in a simulated leather case,
in consideration of 25 cents and some Box Tops from Kellogg's Corn Flakes.
For some reason, I was younger back then.
I sent in the cash n box tops n waited a long time; got impatient, after a while.
Then one Saturday nite, I had a dream
that it arrived.
The next morning, Sunday morning, a mail truck arrived with my stuff, as advertized
and as dreamed. Blew my mind.
However, the government never
demanding that I show up for work, nor threatening to dock me vacation days
for absence, however; as I remember, thay never paid me, either and
to this DAY
thay have never come across with my retirement pension from that job.
