In the past couple of weeks I have received some weird e-mails. Not spam. "Max" is not that unusual a name but with my surname I can't imagine I share the same name with many people.
The other day I got one from some physical therapist in Missouri. It was a pdf file of various stretches and rehab exercise, wiht instructions to do these once a day. I have never been in physical therapy and I have never been to Missouri.
Prior to this I received an e-mail addressed to a large group. It said something like, "I want to thank you for all of your prayers and encouragement. I got the new job at the Twin Cities Foundation for the Arts."
I have never been to Minnesota, and I didn't recognize the name of the sender, so I sent her a reply: "Congratulations on the new job, but are you sure you meant to send this to me?"
The response came back promptly. "Of course I meant to send to you. I couldn't have done it without help from YOU!!"
Well, no need for me to belabor the point. I am always glad to help out.
