Lamplighter--

Finding a load that is "right" involves trying some that are too light (like before?) and some that are too heavy (like now?). He's using the tried and true Goldilocks method of figuring it all out. I add my voice to the chorus of cheering support, Good Job on him!

I have a job interview next Tuesday.
It's for Sunday work in a large pharmacy chain.

All I can do is hope.
And ask questions of my SIL who works there.
And check out interview questions on the internet, and come up with potential answers that match the person spec.

Yup, it's a Sundae job.

bought a skeleton the size of Thor from the thrift store for $6.50. Thor and Hector had already had $6.50 worth of fun out of it before we even paid for it. Then Thor and I went into the Library. Hector put Melvin the driver's seat, hands on the wheel... He looked awesome. hector reported many double takes and a little laughter. then he had Melvin waving at other drivers. (rushhour, traffic speed non-existent.) some pretended we didn't exist, others laughed and enjoyed. So funny.

With a big saucepan and some wire you could have saved yourself $6.50.

I'm so happy. We got a big box of candy from Sundae last week and I got a card from her today. It only took the card 2 1/2 months to get here. LOL. That's the way it goes when you live in the boondocks.

TY Sundae for making a horrible day at the doctors turn into a great one!!

So after all my moaning it was actually my own fault for not putting enough postage on!
Oh well, at least they didn't do what they do here, which is deliver it anyway but charge YOU the extra postage plus a 99p fine!

Glad it finally arrived.
Sorry that it still applies all this time later...

Major congratulations CG.
She is obviously a very specal woman.
(and a patient one )

Sarge - just realised, you were reading the date in the American way.
I posted the card on 6 September. Which still means it took a month and a half, but at least I know the reason.

But it's worth knowing if I'm sending something in future.
There is a sharp drop in price sending things by slow mail, so if time isn't of the essence I might use it again - intentionally next time.

So saying, is it time for Secret Santa yet peeps?
