Sent them packing

Dancing Queen and Lene’s second stalkAndy’s package came slowly back to me. Standing in line at the post office yesterday, the next clerk up was the one who’d helped me send his off the first time.

“You paid Express on this one! They didn’t forward it?!” She was indignant. She wanted to know, was it the American postal service or the English? The English. Oh well, at least there’s that. Her pride was mollified.

I’d emailed, gotten an answer yesterday and an updated address–oops–and I was trying again. But it was going first class this time, I’d already shot my wad. Andy, it’s coming.

I walked past Steve on my way out, thinking, actually, how glad I was that Andy’s package had given me an excuse to come back and tell Steve–he caught my eye, wanting to know.  Yes. I smiled and told him, “She got it! Aup and coming amaryllis crop day and a half! *Thank* you!”

He gave me a thumbs up and a big grin. He was SO glad.  It totally made his day.

We’re all in this life thing together.

Hello, my friend. Yes, I had to ship some yarn internationally yesterday, and the clerk and I are curious to see how long it will take. I’m there enough that I will be able to give her a timely update, I’m sure.

WooHoo! Let’s here it for helpful postal workers. They don’t get enough good press.

Yes, we are in this life thing together! Thanks for your recent comment on my blog–I too was surprised by the Native American sugaring technique. In retrospect, it seems, umm, obvious? but at the time, I remember standing there and going, “Huh. Who’d have thunk it?!”
