For some reason, I thought today was Thursday, and went into see if my schedule had been updated. I was wrong. We're only into Wednesday. The updating will come sometime this afternoon.
Yesterday was a no-go as far as everything that had been expected. Mike (the Plumber) showed up but had to take his truck in to get inspected. He took pictures, and a video of the bad pipe, and gave me a quote. Very high $$$, but I'm going with it. This is the same reputable company I've been dealing with for some time, and I can afford it, however the truck inspection took longer than expected, so he'll be back this morning.
I did drive over to World Class Ski and Cycle to pick up the check for selling my X6 Cannondale. The first check they'd sent me got lost in De Loy's screwed up postal service. And then, of course, 19 days after the first check was mailed, the carrier dropped off the first check last evening. A black sharpie had been used to scratch off the first delivery bar codes on the envelope, indicating the check had been delivered to the wrong address and that person had returned it to the Enola post office, which sent it back to the Camp Hill post office so it could be processed a 2nd time. The bicycle shop put a stop payment on the first check and issued a 2nd. This is almost the height of postal incompetence.
My roses are beginning to come in.
Uvalde Texas tragedy is heart breaking. The nation didn't learn from Sandy Hook.ReplyDelete
2nd amendment voters have America held hostage.Delete
JM...we never learn from anything. How many times does this need to happen.Delete
It's not 'we,' it's Republicans and it will continue to happen until America starts voting Republicans out of office.Delete
I grow tired of people on the left shouting that we need to do something and then doing nothing.ReplyDelete
The problem is with legislators, 2 right now, who refuse to end the filibuster, not so much because it's a bad thing, but rather because they're concerned it will make them look complicit in creating an anti-2nd amendment agenda in the eyes of the Republicans who vote for them.Delete
Gun Fanatics will Love their Guns more than any Human Life... the quickest way to get them frothing at the Mouth is to mention restrictions on Firearms of any kind. No amount of Dead Children and other senseless carnage of innocent Citizens would ever sway them. Most of them want to carry their own Guns everywhere to intimidate and show how Bad Ass they Imagine they are. The Far Right know who their Base is.ReplyDelete
You're right. Their first thought when something like this happens is "Holy Shit, now they're going to try and take away my guns!" Life has no meaning for them.Delete
I went to the post office for the first time in year to mail Jules a postcard. It made it to England. Sometimes it is easier just to tell them you will pick up the check.ReplyDelete
That's what will happen next year.Delete
