    No fencing on the sides, at least right there. There is a "bounce" fence in the median of the interstate itself, a couple of cables that I was told by a cop are strong enough to catch a car and...

    Not soon enough! I dislike beards and have rarely seen one that I thought was an improvement.

    I used to love having Mom be the first reader on things I wrote back before she lost it, precisely because she would give her opinion.

    Always include positives/done well along with suggestions, and put the positives first.

    I once got a Paperbackswap book from Hawaii, and I've had two others from Alaska. Soon as I saw where they were coming from, I thought, "Boy, this will take forever." Nope. Lickity split, both of...

    Nope, not in Virginia. I'm in the midwest.

    It's an Amazon package, so should be automated, bar coded, etc. to the hilt, not hand addressed.

    It's Fed Ex eventually to USPS, but Fed Ex is enjoying it while they have it.

    Box Tracking Mysteries

    Can anybody think of a legitimate reason why a box that entered the system in Atlanta, GA, and is being shipped to Missouri first went to Massachusetts?

  16. Mom's Afghan - Crafting the Past and the Present Together

    This is my winter project for this winter. :)

    Mom was a lifelong crafter, something we had fun with together, too. She gave me my first craft basket when I was, I think, 8 years old. ...

    I have heard many people say, "Have a blessed day," in all sincerity. I have also heard my deep south relatives say, "Bless your heart," when it obviously meant only that.

    I've only had one that I thought of calling in, and it turned out that a cop was there almost immediately before I could call, so I got a mile-or-so demonstration of "cop" procedure. I was driving...

    I think some people are different in real life and that the "intonations" of the keyboard just don't come across as clearly as face-to-face.

    And then again, I think some are simply mean.

    The story is over, and the rat is gone. Credit for the kill goes to Pilgrim. Coda was VERY interested, but she thought it was a toy, I think. Pilgrim knew what a rat was.
