First Days of Summer
Summer is officially here folks!
So what's going on in my world? I just finished listening to a speech by Donald Trump. This was a scripted speech he read from a teleprompter. His "peeps" are trying to get the wildly unscripted Donald on script so he doesn't keep showing the country and world what a world class ignoramus he is. After listening to his poorly read teleprompter speech stating lie after lie about Hillary Clinton I now feel like I have to take a shower. Am I dreaming? Can this racist, narcissist con man really be the presumptive Republican candidate for the president of the United States of America? Deliver us. I'm no big Hillary Clinton fan but wow, talk about contrast. One thing about The Donald, he is entertaining.
I'm all over the place this morning folks. I just came back from the Post Office. I was going to mail a teddy bear to a friend of mine in Arizona. The teddy bear is light, the box he was in was big. Guess what the Post Office wanted to charge me? $50! Yes, FIFTY DOLLARS. No wonder some want to privatize the Post Office. I left the Post Office and called our local United Parcel Office. The photo at the top of this post is from the parking lot of that office. It is of Route 24, where I have gotten a lot of my medical needs met. United Parcel charged me $19. No wonder some want to privatize the Post Office. Plus the person who waited on my at United Parcel had a smile and was very helpful. She actually acted like she was glad for my business unlike the Post Office employee who acted very annoyed with me. Like I was bothering her. That attitude folks is the difference between someone who has a lifetime protection of a job and one who depend on good customer service for return business. The Post Office literally doesn't care if they have your business.
We're experiencing another hot and humid day here folks. A rolling thunderstorm rolled in these parts late yesterday afternoon. Lots of banging and cracking but thankfully, nothing electrical was knocked out. My local nursery wasn't so lucky. Their credit card reader was zapped. A new one will cost a $1,000! In the past we have had our whole house sound system knocked out by a thunderstorm. Global warming!
We're just hanging out here in the manse today folks, staying cool. You do the same!
