I need to be cleaning, but I haven't quite got my motor going yet today. So instead of working on the house, an update here then I should be active enough to get moving.|
I mentioned my Godson is getting married this June. Earlier this week I found out about a 2nd wedding. That girl who played the cello for us way back when, is also getting married this June. Mom talked to that young lady's mother. Mom told me the girl's mother was upset the kid not only didn't tell us about her wedding, but also she never visited us with her hubby to be. Knowing that side of my family, there's a good chance we'll be getting a visit from the couple in the next month or two.
Hmm, what else? I finished White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison. I've been enjoying that whole series of books.
Speaking of books, I'm on the email list of a fair amount of major book sellers. Today, Borders books sent me an email formally announcing my local store they have by me is closing and everything in the store must go. Prices are slashed up to 40%.
I've only known the store from the customers point of view, and from the happy memories I had of buying some books then reading through them while sipping a latte in their coffee shop --- or going even farther back in time, my old swing dance group used to meet there to do our dancing and socializing years ago in that coffee shop. I am not happy seeing that store close.
Oh, another thing that happened was checking my mail earlier this week I discovered a sticker placed on the underside of my mail box's lid with a bar code on the sticker. My mail box is now a "managed service point."
I found this website which among a bunch of other things talks about managed service points: www.usps.com/strategicplanning/cs04/chp2_015.html
Officially, it's for planning mail delivery routes. Unofficially, I think it's to spy on my mail carrier and make sure he's doing his job when he should be doing it.
That's enough for now. Time to get moving no matter if I feel like it or not.
