Disappearing Mailboxes Out- Dates a Work of Art. Famed cartoonist, Harold Winer, created a number of illustrations for us. They were a thank you present. At one time he was associated with the Sarasota Music Archives. My wife Sharon, and myself, do musical charity work. The Sarasota Music Archives was one of the beneficiaries. It has one of the finest collections of sheet music in the country. As a thank you, Harold Winer gave us a number of art works. The Ohs is short for our last name, Ohrenstein.

Disappearing mailboxes
This sad picture looks like a lost and found of mailboxes. It seems like they need a home.

For many, mailboxes hark back to a day and age of nostalgia. The sight of mailmen at mailboxes was the norm. Now most are hard pressed to even find one mailbox. (Photo credits: Mailboxes awaiting disposal in San Jose1973 8-cent stamp)

For baby boomers, this was part of growing up.

Disappearing Mailboxes Replaced by E-Mail

 Mail boxes have pretty much disappeared; yet, Sharon and I are still performing. We have started to write our own. I have always been a composer. Sharon writes the lyrics and book. Most recently, we wrote Golden Roads. It was the opening show for the Sarasolo festival. Carlo Thomas is our director. We thank him for his help. He guided our rehearsals. Also, he provided about 2 dozen artistically made posters. During the course of the presentation, Sharon co-ordinates the dialogue with the pictures. Our show sold out,  SRO. On the positive side, the mail is still there. Only, it is called e-mail.  Speaking of which, please feel free to share this e-mail with friends. Let’s have many new shows of all types that can  offer us rides on Golden Roads.
