What I'm reading: Born to Run, by James Grippando
With widespread family, I do a lot of shopping on line. Much easier than going out, buying, wrapping, packing, standing in line at the Post Office, and paying extra for shipping. (I believe I mentioned it cost over $15 to send a $2.50 bag of stuffing mix to my daughter in Northern Ireland.
And, since that daughter lives in Northern Ireland, I shopped at Amazon's UK "store" for gifts for her and her husband. Today I got the notice that my order had been shipped. Only over there, they don't say that. Instead, it was dispatched, and by Royal Mail, no less. OK, I know their postal system is the Royal Mail (and I had the pleasure of chatting with one of the Royal Mail carriers when I visited England), but the Amazon email conjured up images of the Queen handing my purchases to a gallant messenger who lea onto his royal steed and gallops away to deliver the goods.
Today's Gratitude List:
1. Nice drugs for pulled back muscles
2. Thermal-Care heat wraps
3. On-line shopping
