Mail Call

December 30, 1997

Mail Call

"This is for the lady who said she didn't like tattoos on women. Well, I'm a 15-year-old girl and my mom allowed me to get a very small tattoo after making me think about it for quite a while. I finally decided to get one on my leg. It's very small and discreet. No one can see it if I wear socks or even a band aid. I think females should have the right to make the decision of a tattoo just as well as a man. This is the '90s and we females do have a say in what we want. I personally have decided not to get another one but only because they do hurt. But it's my decision in the future. I'm sure a lot of people are going to respond because I'm 15 but I have a really cool mom and she understands us teenagers and she sat me down and made me realize that this is something permanent and can't be removed just because I had a whim and wanted my way. There's also a few of my friends now that also have tattoos, both boys and girls. It's not as bad as you all would like to have people think. The art of tattooing has been being done for thousands of years and I don't think it will stop just because a few of you negative minded people don't like it."

"I agree with Tim Rowland that all it takes is 37 cents, but when I asked for help I was told my income is too high, I'm on Social Security and my kids were too old for Christmas. I saw the people also that came out of the Salvation Army and they had more than I could ever dream of having. Nice cars, big leather coats, Rebok shoes and one lady had several diamond rings on one hand. I had a diamond ring once, too, but I had to pawn it to help pay the rent. So this year I'm putting all my extra 37 cents into my own little bucket to help myself and pay for my own Christmas for my two boys next year."

"This is to the one that turned me into welfare two days before Christmas with false charges. You should worry about our own baby boy not having enough food to eat and diapers to wear so that you don't have to call his grandparents all the time to pay for these things. You always seem to have liquor in the house so why don't you use that money for the baby? I think it's time you had Social Services knocking on your door. It would be legitimate wouldn't it? Thank you Mail Call."

"Way to go Miller Brewing Company. I saw your billboard on Md. 64 and was glad to see that you don't want minors drinking beer even though that would mean more profit for you. I hope that every parent sees this billboard and will think twice before giving their child his or her first drink this New Year's Eve. Thank you."

"To the Mail Caller complaining about the Salvation Army giving money and gifts to the prisoners. This is the season for forgiveness and the Salvation Army is a great Christian organization. Maybe the rest of you should get a little more Christianity in your lives."

"Hi Mail Call. I'd like to wish my friend Donnie Rohrer, Big Daddy Cool, a Happy New Year. I hope this one is better than it was in '97. Little David Cool."

"Yes. Well, honey, it's only 17 more days to go until you get home. I can't wait. I love you with all my heart and I'm patiently awaiting your return. Hurry home. I love you."

-----

"Yes. I'd like to thank the parties that keep stealing the arrangements off my mother and father's grave everytime I put something on it. Yes, they are unusual that's true because my daughter's a florist, but boy, when you've got to steal from the dead it's a shame. Thank you Mail Call."

"I'd like to congratulate Nick on another job well done with his 'Christmas With Nick.' Also to my adopted son and daughter Larry and Janet, you've been there since it first started, that first meal. You all did a good job and it makes us proud. Mom and Dad."

"It was Friday, the day after Christmas and I live near the county landfill and I saw about 100 vehicles loaded with trash pull up to the locked gate. The county should do more to inform the public when the landfill closes."

-----

"I think it's time for our local state politicians to draft a bill to see that the real estate tax money, that more of it can go back to the counties to be used for the school system."

-----

"I'm calling about the person who called about the lottery calendars. If they are still interested in buying them, they can reach me at 301-733-0170. Thank you."

"Sometime after 5 o'clock on the Tuesday before Christmas my gray female cat who had just recently been spayed disappeared from a close area in front or back of 1001 Rosehill Avenue. Please check your sheds or garages if they were open around this time. Possibly someone took her home in their car not knowing while they visited my neighbors for Christmas. She'd be at home if she could get here. If anyone knows anything about where I could find her please call 301-733-3902. I'd appreciate any help I could get to find her. Thank you."
