    I ordered a couple of textbooks for some continuing education training I am doing for work. Placed the order Friday morning, it shipped Friday afternoon from Chicago, in Memphis Saturday morning, and then to Jackson, Mississippi Saturday evening and its still there. I am in Little Rock, 90 minutes from Memphis. Jackson, MS is seven hours away. I should have had my books Saturday afternoon or Sunday at the latest. Good old USPS, and government efficiency, can't even deliver packages in a way that makes sense. The government should not be in charge of anything that the private business sector can do 100 times better.

    SERIUOSLY!!!! I send a Birthday card to sons house which is in our town...his legal address(the house) is the next town over 9 miles away. The card has to go to Buffalo then to Rochester to our town then to the next town over. WTH IS THAT!....No global warming worries at play there!
    While I'm at it. My nearst Sam's club is an hour and a half away. So I have a "prime" membership for free shipping. I put in big orders to save shipping. What do they do? Ship the order in 3-4 different shipments with one to 3 items per box. THATS EFFICIENT for these global warming warriors. Give me a freaking break.

    Tease your son: ask him if he would rather have LeBron's advice on a plumbing, automotive, or basketball problem.

    Conceptually post offices is a hub spoke model...local branches route to a collection point and are rerouted... This the heart of the zip code and encoding...

    My parents being stupid they can no longer live on their own (for now) my mom refusing to have anybody in her house. They are lucky that I was out of town for the intervention. If I was there I would thank them for the decision I won't have to pay them off for all 10 years because they will be dead..

    Just had to bury our 18+ yr old cat. She stopped eating 3-4 days ago..we helped her to water on the porch twice this a.m. and she slept there for a while then disappeared. I ground some deer meat to try and get some food in her and when she didn't come to my calling I went looking. She was in the sun in her favorite spot the front flower garden under the picture window. I'm glad I changed my mind last year and gave her more time. Brushed her in my lap yesterday to a purring little engine RIP little jade.

    A-hole TSA took my gummies out of my toiletry bag in my luggage, left me a slip to show they were there. They were not THC gummies, they were omega 8. Going to be pissed all night when I do not sleep.

    Well I give up ha. Mowed Saturday and took dog's tie out off so didn't run over the chain and for the life of me I can't find it. Just spent the last 15 mins crawling around back yard on hands and knees and nothing. My only guess is ran over it with mower and pushed it down enough that it's gone forever.

    Guess we'll be goin back to seeing if he get's bored or mad at me for being alone when I'm at work and messing up house. Which was reason for tie out anyway. 90% of time does fine in the house but sometimes 10 or more hours in the house alone is too long and he let's me know.
