|WRONG Post Office|
Nothing exciting to report today folks. Just a quiet Saturday. Oh I did run into a bit of a kerfuffle trying to send a few documents to my friend Pat in Canada. God, one would think I was a terrorist trying to send liquid nitrogen to Canada. The guy at the post office said I needed to fill out a Customs Declaration form and the cost of mailing would be $45.75. Obviously he didn't know what he was talking about. I exited the post office and went to another Post Office and mailed my package of copied documents for $2.45, sans filling out a Customs Declaration form. Yes folks, the terrorists have won.

That done I went to the local Food Lion and got even more frustrated trying to buy some frozen fruit (a woman with a overflowing grocery cart was blocking my way to the frozen food doors - I think she was stunned - she didn't move for a full ten minutes) to the woman ahead of me in the checkout line who paid for her purchase with actual dollar bills and coins which she had to fish out of her purse, walled and special coin pocket (Oh God, where do these people come from?)

Once home I had a relaxing lunch of Panera loaded potato soup (loaded with artery clogging calories but what the hey?) and a hummus wrap sprinkled with feta cheese. I tried the "extra spicy" hummus this time. I like spicy but this was too spicy. Talk about a party in your mouth. I felt like my mouth was in Tijuana after a Saturday night blitz.
|I AM tall enough to reach the top.|
Nap time after lunch as is my usual habit. I am a creature of habit if nothing else.
|Bill goes for the angle shot|
Then, rested and unwound from the frustrations of earlier today I was energized enough to tackle trimming my holly trees in my backyard. There is a catbird out there that's been scolding me all week because I haven't trimmed those holly trees prior to the cold coming on. I told Bill to take some photos of me trimming the errant holly trees just to prove to everyone I do more than complain, eat lunch and nap. I actually do something constructive.
|God! I look more like my father every day. He used to let his mouth hang open like this too.|
Oh, I almost forgot. I make DVD copies of the Bloggerpalooza movie and sent them out to the desired recipients (you know who you are) today. Look for that happy DVD in the mail next week.
|"Isn't this the tree that had the wasps in it?"|
Yes indeed, a very productive day in spite of a hurdle here and there.
Now I think I'll make myself a smoothie and take in one of my Netflix DVD movies. "Madmen", Season Six.
