    Ack!!! The Mormons found me!

    I could hardly believe it. I haven't stepped foot in an LDS church in twenty-five years, and today I got a letter asking if I'm still a member! :rofl: I have no idea how they even found me. Surely there are plenty of Ivan Seekings in the country. I know for a fact that there was no forwarding information available from that time.

    They're probably who the student loan companies hire to track down people delinquent on repaying the loans! :rofl:

    Might also depend on whether the sign also says, "Dead or Alive" on it. :uhh:

    They wouldn't if they read my posts in S&D!!! :biggrin:

    ...of course, now that I think about it, they do believe in ETs.

    The Mormons will claim you dead or alive - even if you're Jewish.

    hahaha :biggrin:, they must have put some effort into finding you or else they have the wrong guy. Is it the same LDS church that you went to 25 years ago?

    No, this was from the main office in Utah, but they definitely got the right guy. But I have to wonder how many Ivan Seekings got my letter.

    I think the Mormons are one of the largest collectors of personal information in the world.
    Its to do with having to know how many souls there have been and being able to pay to convert your dead ancestors.
    Perhaps they've just bought a new electronic list from someone else or maybe new software that allows them to cross-reference other lists.
    Either way a swift name change is in order.

    I lived in northern Virginia through the 70's and 80's, and although I've seen the "Surrender Dorothy" on that bridge several times, I never got the joke unitl now!

    Heh heh.
