• Trick or Treat?

It so happens that Halloween comes on a Thursday this year. Whereas trash day has been on Thursdays since I moved here. Another Thursday ritual is the “Free” paper (Southwest Weekly)  that the Press Enterprise throws on my driveway each week.

I'll admit that I peak into it now and then, but it’s usually only a rehash of what I’ve already heard somewhere else, often days before.

We all know it’s really just a vehicle to get their ads into our hot little hands...  
but let's let them keep thinking they're delivering timely news to us just the same.


A month or so back I took notice of their subheading that read:

Serving Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, 
and other communities of Southwest Riverside County.

Ok, I’m not such a homer that you have to mention my city… but then again 
“what up wit’ dat?” 
Was it really too difficult to add Wildomar to that list?


Today I was outside doing some yard work when a van came by to throw the latest copy on the driveway. The driver got my attention and asked me if I had complained about the paper.

I thought to myself, “Not formally” but answered, “No, I don’t have a problem getting the free paper.” 

Apparently someone on my cul-de-sac complained. 

Come to think of it, it would be nice if they'd cut out
the middle man and just toss it in the blue can to start with. 


 Oh, and why would I complain when my birds love each issue?  

Though I do wish they were made of plastic and I could use them when I walk my dogs...
but alas, one cannot have everything in this life.
