this and that

first off
toonman's pink eye appears to be all better

the weather was fairly nice 
the predicted rain 
defied the forecasters
it didnt rain

our newspaper delivery
is always an issue
either it arrives late
or
not at all

numerous phone calls
complaints
voila it was on or close to on time all last week
til saturday
sigh
when it did arrive it was left unceremoniously
outside 
on
the street

my fellow deliveree and i decided it was due to haste

this morning
it as outside again

i called
the rep said 
record shows it was left in vestibule

um no

well
 thats what the record shows

well
that is not where they were
you 
may/can
 believe 
whoever
 you wish 
but 
please tell them 
to
 put the papers in the vestible
thanks and have a good day
click

  3. I'm so glad to read that Toon's on the mend. On my gosh, here the paper is bundled with an elastic and tossed in a sort of general direction towards the house! Some days it ends up on the porch, some days in the hedge and some in the garden. I actually called the local paper and had them stop delivery. I tend not to read it anyway and got sick of having broken irises. I actually don't watch the news or read papers (in hand or on line). That saves me loads of daily grief about the state of the world and also saves me the bias with which a particular story is disseminated. All the important news filters in anyway)

  4. I have issues with my paper delivery person too -- I don't know why they can't read / follow instructions.
