RE: news of the day: catalogs

I love 'em, too, Melody. At my house, I have The Catalog Basket, which
is a wicker basket about 3 feet in diameter and 2-and-a-half feet deep.
That's where I store all my catalogs. This time of year, of course, it
always overflows.

Some of my favorite catalogs are Heirloom Roses, Archie McPhee
(novelties), Deva Lifewear (all-cotton clothes ideal for gardening),
Lehman's Non-Electric (from a huge general store that serves the Amish
community), Northern Sun (clever tees, bumperstickers, and pins--
something to please and/or offend everybody), and Gardener's Supply Co.
I also receive the What On Earth catalog with all its great t-shirts. My
favorite slogan is "Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?"

I used to have harmless fantasies over the catalog merchandise, but over
the past few years, I've developed a nasty habit of buying things.
Mailorder plants are a gateway drug <sigh and VBG>!

Oh, I ***love*** catalogs!!!!!! As I have no credit cards, I am
perfectly safe with them (I've never ordered a thing from any of
them)...I just get such a vicarious thrill out of seeing all the stuff
that is out there is consumer-land...
