I'm pretty sure there's at least ONE room in your house where you still use paper every day! :wink: And I shudder to think how that would work if you tried to do it electronically!

I was thinking of a challenge this morning with a title of "Going Postal".

Wonder who'll be the first to put a camera in their mailbox and catch the postman
or woman delivering the mail!

The dictionary entry was pretty extensive, but for those who haven't a clue about this noun, adjective & verb,
here's just a brief synopsis: Paper
1. a material used for writing, printing, drawing, wrapping packages, and covering walls.
2. a piece or sheet of paper.
3. a piece or sheet of paper with writing or printing on it; document.
4. a wrapper, container, or sheet of paper containing something.
5. a newspaper; journal.
6. an article; essay.
7. a written examination.
8. a written promise to pay money or a note, bill of exchange, or the like.
9. paper money or currency.
