After reading the wonderful reminiscences of the families of Wednesday Journal delivery boys and girls, I was genuinely touched, having had such young entrepreneurs in our family as well.

But as I lost my job last month, after 33 years, joining the other 344,999 men and women who were let go in May, I wondered at the Journal’s timing to go to bulk mail delivery and eliminate what I thought would be a perfect job for me!

Who wouldn’t want less stress and more time outdoors?

Timing is everything in life …
