Just Jot It January # 13 – Subscribe

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 13th, 2020

***

Your prompt today is brought to us by Willow!. Thank you so much, Willow!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 13th, 2020, is “subscribe.” Use the word “subscribe” any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

We used to subscribe to the local newspaper, but haven’t in many years. I liked reading them, but I’d get so far behind they would just pile up unread. Any actual ‘news’ we’d already heard on the local TV station news casts, so mostly I liked the comics pages, and the crossword puzzle pages.

If there was some strange thing that happened, or whatever I thought really interesting, I’d clip out the piece to save. Did I ever go back to them? No. I finally threw it all away.

We used to subscribe to a magazine or two in the past, but no more. I can’t even remember what they were, except Golf Digest (for him). I’m not much of a magazine type reader, anyway. There were a couple I liked a long time ago, because they had pages where you could find a pen pal to write to. I had my letters published in those several times, and lots of people wrote letters to me, and I to them back & forth for quite a few years. I still have some of the letters. Most everyone stopped when the internet and emails became more of a thing.

It’s very seldom we’ll get a letter in the mail these days. A card now and again sure, but not letters. I miss that.

Blogging is kind of like having pen pals I think. At least some of us write electronically in the comments back & forth and get to know about each other a little. Progress – yes, in many ways, but still it was fun to get letters in the mailbox.

Back Where I Come From – Day 29

Question # 29

29. Does your hometown have a newspaper?  Does it come out daily, bi-weekly, weekly, or some other frequency? Does your hometown have its own radio station?

My Answer:

We do have a hometown newspaper, called the Lubbock Avalanche Journal. It was founded in 1900, and is a daily. There used to be a morning and an evening edition, but then was only issued for the morning.  In 1997 they launched the digital newspaper, called LubbockOnline.com. So now we have a choice of how we read the newspaper.

We used to take the home delivery of the paper, but stopped a few years ago, as we get most local and national news from the TV.

***

For radio stations, I saw a list someone made that said there are approximately 35 FM radio stations, and 14 AM stations here and the area. They cover all formats, from music, of all types, sports, news, and talk radio. I have my favorites, which are the oldies music stations, and the rock stations.
