    Interesting that it’s a two-ounce stamp, which is not cancelled. Probably the correct postage, but I wonder if it actually came through the mail, or someone dropped it off personally. I have seen irregular envelopes miss getting a cancel, though, so it’s not unheard of.

    My best guess concerning this is that it’s related to some religious water treatment. I’ve seen groups that offer “blessed” or otherwise treated water that is supposed to cure illness or grant immunities. Often times these groups will send out offerings that have been treated with the “miracle water” in an effort to effect their own results.
    In other words, you’re just an unwitting participant in their “get rich/well” scheme with a zealous religious tint to it.

    FYH typically is used to mean For Your Home.

    In another post you mentioned Atlanta, and there’s a church called One Way Ministries that uses OWM for their stuff that is in Morrow, Georgia.

    Could have some connection, but not sure what the cold water could mean.

    Okay let’s start with the phrase itself. 

    The Greatest Cold Water
     

    sounds weird all together right?

    let’s assume it was meant to be broken up into two phrases. then we get The Greatest / Cold Water.

    I’ll come back to The Greatest in a minute. But what do people usually associate with cold water? Splashing it on your face to wake you up. This is a wake up call to perhaps The Greatest secret mankind has ever discovered. Now look at the letters in the 3 groups.  OMWTERFYH – A simple anagram finder will show that one possible anagram of these letters is “M Theory” which is basically a unified theory of string theory, our an attempt to prove in unobservable parallel dimensions. COINCIDENCE?

    Let’s examine the stamp now. The man pictured is renowned deaf educator Robert Panara. He was a pioneer in founding American Sign language, or in other words, he was instrumental in finding a way to reach the hearing impaired and allowing them to communicate with the greater population. 

    Where am i going with this? The leftover letters in the anagram are FW, commonly used as a way to forward mail. Arranged with the previous phrase, it spells out “FW: M Theory”. I postulate that this letter was sent by someone across a parallel dimension in an attempt to make contact with us and bring us the ability to travel to other parallel universes.

    Why is the the crochet heart significant? The heart is there most important organ in the body. This one has a metal loop on it showing it most likely belongs on a keychain. As it most likely is itself a key to unlocking the secret to interdimensional travel. 

    Obviously you need to take the heart to the grave of Robert Panara and a gateway will be opened to the dimension this letter originated from.

    Let us know how your adventure goes

    Could the water turning red be some kind of religious reference for water into wine? I read heart as “on my way”

    This looks like a rabbit hole for an alternate reality game. If I had any cryptography skills at all I’d be looking for meanings in FYH, TER and OMW/OWM right now. And steaming the stamp up to see if there’s anything there.

    Edit: I said ‘augmented’ when I meant ‘alternate.’ Also, I’ve asked about this on /r/arg in case anyone there knows or can find out anything. [Here’s the link](https://www.reddit.com/r/ARG/comments/74jktv/mystery_letter_from_whatisthisthing_could_this_be/)

    As a former letter carrier I would see interesting things in the mail like this (not exactly like this) on a somewhat regular basis.

    Depending on the location of your neighborhood, my first guess would be someone from a halfway house, or someone with schizophrenia has decided to take it upon themselves to inform everyone about how they feel.

    My second guess would be this is going to be a two parter, where the second (or maybe some subsequent) letter will connect everything together.

    As far as the postage not getting canceled, it depends. That looks like a nonmachinable piece, but every carrier should know they need to cancel anything live they deliver, most all carriers have a black ink pad attached to their workspace for just such a purpose. Not all mail is canceled in an obvious sort of way.

    As far as touching a mailbox, again that depends on the situation. What type of mailbox, is it privately owned, or owned by the post office? Has anyone complained to the post office, or letter carrier on the route? In all honesty, you are very unlikely to actually get a postal inspector to come out and do anything, but good luck.

    You could always ask the letter carrier in the neighborhood about this.

    Follow Your Heart as the return address

    A pink heart keychain with On My Way on it (or One Woman Man/One Man Woman?)

    I recently sae the documentary “How to Draw a Bunny” about pop artist Ray Johnson. He liked to make art, mail it to people, requesting they add to it and keep mailing it on.

    The documentay says that even though Ray Johnson has passed away, the “mail art” movement continues. I wonder if this is someone’s take on that, and they were inspired by Ray Johnson.

    Could be sent by someone in prison. A company I worked for got one once. It was weird but this might be more.

    Back in my college days I used to get really bored on school breaks, and I would resort to stupid shit like sending random strangers that I picked out of the phone book crazy letters. I glued weird pics on one envelope, and would write things like, “You are the chosen one” with letters cut from magazines. Maybe some other psycho picked your name from the phone book, or whatever equivalent there is today.

    Being a crafty person, I am assuming that the heart keychain is crocheted by hand. The lettering is from a stencil. If this was sent to a lot of people in a neighborhood (as sir or madam instead of by name – weird), it’s perhaps a “teaser” or promotion for a new homegrown company, but a poorly executed one. There’s no response information so I’d assume there’s some kind of follow-up coming.

    It looks like there’s a ring on that yarn heart thing. Anything significant about it or just a plain old boring ring?

    One of your neighbours has a slight schizophrenia. Based on statistics and the heart and the picture on the stamp it’s probably a women, age 65 or up, living alone but not too far away of the distribution area, maybe in the center of it. She goes around and want’s to spread her well intended message. She is most probably absolute harmless, if she starts to concentrate one few or one house and includes other things like money (happens often) in her letters it’s time to begin looking for an intervention.
    Since schizophrenia often has intermittent phases she might be dropping her behavior again.

    Sincerely,
    Captain Obvious
