Watching two of my favorite girls
Run their hearts out in a muddy, soggy three mile cross country race!
Her response was as expected (trust me, she is one of the last live voices left at a 1-800 number ~ another example of how technology has replaced jobs) and she said, I will send the order, but if he comes and you are not there, the order will be canceled and you will have to call us again (now, that is a fate worse then death!) I flat out lied to the live voice on the other end of the line and said, "Guess what, I will now be here all afternoon.......please send him ASAP! Finally, thirty white knuckled, clock watching minutes later, the Gods smiled on me ~ and look what pulled up to my house! Things were looking up!
Post script to this post ~ we are now out of or can't find our duct tape (read "Just wondering?") and
look what poor Ellen had to do to hang a reminder note ......a plastic tie looped through a piece
of paper and hung on the chain lock....give her credit for ingenuity!
