I come across some pretty off the whole stuff rummaging through boxes. In my family we tend to pass things around to each other, take what you need or want and then pass it along. With every one pinching pennies these days, it all adds up! Anyway I some how managed to find a box in the back of my car last week, couldn’t tell you where it came from, but I took the time to look at the items that were thrown in there, pulled a few things out and will stick it back in my car to pass along to the next friend, co worker or family member that I run into that may have a use for some or all of the stuff left in it.

I found a stack of paper napkins with the following statement embossed on them.

To Be A Virginian, either by Birth, Marriage, Adoption, or even on one’s Mother’s side, is an introduction to any State in The Union, a Passport to any Foreign Country, and a Benediction from Above.

Since I was born in Virginia I’ve become used to seeing the famous “Virginia Is For Lovers” but I’ve never read or heard of this saying. I think it’s pretty cool and am going to pin on my bulletin board with all the other notes and mementoes that have gathered there for so long.
