DEC 4,2013

some calendars/books are mailed-- 32 feet of reg tape  , 2.5 hours , over $1000  in postage and the first batch are done..  i can't give you the exact $$ amt because it was yesterday's trivia question at tuesday mail call.

yesterdays DD ABOUT THE TED LECTURE ON WORKING CERTAINLY WAS ILLUSTRATED AT THAT POSTAL FACILITY..

I DID NOT DARE GO TO THE LOCAL POST OFFICE  WITH 7 CARTONS OF CALENDARS-- SO WE WENT TO THE BIG PLACE..SHELIA AND MEGAN CARRIED IN THE BOXES AND WAVED GOODBYE TO GO TRAIN DOGS WHILE I DEALT..
THERE WERE 3 STATIONS OPEN- WHEN IT WAS MY TURN-- ALL 3 DESKS WERE AVAILABLE-- AND  AS I STOOD BY MY PILE OF CARTONS I SAID--"DO Y OU HAVE ANYONE TO HELP WITH THE HANDICAP PEOPLE?" ( HEY- I DO QUALIFY)

#1 DESK TURNED HER BACK AND LEFT…  #3 GLARED AT ME IN A MOST UNFRIENDLY WAY ----BUT BLESS #2… SHE SAID "LET ME GO FIND SOMEONE TO HELP  YOU"- SHE WS GONE FOR A FEW MINUTES THEN CAME THRU THE DOOR HERSELF AND SAID " THERE IS NO ONE --LET ME DO IT"  AND SHE DID---  MY GUESS SHE WAS NOT ACCUSTOMED TO LIFTING THE WEIGHT OF THOSE BOXES EITHER.. BUT SHE DID IT… CHEERFULLY

IN THE COURSE OF THE NEXT 2.5 HOURS THAT I STOOD THERE LEANING ON THE COUNTER  WHILE SHE PROCESSED THE BUNCH, I SAW 3 ABLE BODIED MEN COME PAST THAT COUNTER-- ONE SEEMED TO BE THE POSTMASTER.

LEAVE ME ANYWHERE FOR 2.5 HOURS AND I AM BOUND TO THINK UP SOME TROUBLE   …  AND I CERTAINLY COULD HAVE AN INTERESTING DISCUSSION WITH THAT POSTMASTER  WHO'S ONLY COMMENT WAS  " YOUR DAUGHTER SHOULD NOT HAVE LEFT YOU HERE WITH THOSE BOXES"

IF I HAD TO , I COULD HAVE LANDED THOSE CARTONS ON THE COUNTER--- BUT BEING THE SLIGHTLY DRAFTY ELDERLY OLD LADY SOMETIMES SUITS MY PERSONA...

I WONDERED --- WAS MY DAUGHTER SHELIA OR MEGAN????

AT ANY RATE WE /SHE-- "SHARON SOMEONE FROM LYNN"    GOT IT DONE.

I HAD GINGER WITH ME FOR ALOT OF THE 2.5 HOURS IN THE P.O..   SHE WAS GOOD-- OBVIOUSLY BORED  BUT  TOTALLY MANAGEABLE…  IF I HAD A KONG WITH ME SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT….

**********

AND MY ONLY PROBLEM IS ( AT LEAST THAT I KNOW OF T THE MOMENT ) MY QUOTA FOR MONKEY FISTS YESTERDAY WAS 39--- AND BECAUSE OF STANDING THERE FOR SO LONG I ONLY FINISHED 24--
 *********
DOGS
 .. PAUL STRUGGLED WITH BOTTLE FEEDING THE  PUPS A COUPLE TIMES-- 
THAT LITTLE PUP.. THE WHITE ONE  "WHIT" IS TINY -- AND NOT GAINING AS OF YESTERDAY…  THE MERLE AND BLACK ARE NOT TANKS EITHER… SOME OF THE HARLS AND MERLEQUINS ARE HUGE ROUND BELLIED ….
WE ARE CONCENTRATING ON GETTING THE OTHER 3 TO THE MILK BAR.


I MUST  FILL OUT THE MASTER LIST  OF DOGSS TODAY… I CAN NOT REMEMBER  WHO IS WHERE WITH WHOM AND WHY

MICHELLE IS DOING A GOOD JOB WITH MIA--- AND MIA SEEMS TO LIKE HER---( MIA TURNED DOWN AT LEAST 3 OTHER PEOPLE)
WE HAVE A RULE HERE  NO DOG GETS ASSIGNED UNLESWS THEY WILL FOLLOW THEIR NEW OWNER DOWN THE DRIVEWAY--  THEY HAVE TO LIKE THIER NEW ASSIGNMENTS
*****

WE HAD ONLY 2 ENVELOPES FOR MAILCALL-- BUT BAILEY STOLE THE SHOW ANYWAY  AS SHE  TOOK THE BASKET BAC AND FORTH  SEEMINGLY LOOKING FOR MORE MAIL...

**********

I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM TH E  SAVE YOUR AXX  WOMAN ABOUT HT E18 YEAR OLD MULE UP FOR RESCUE.. I KNOW SHE CALLED GEORGE AND EARLENE TO CHECK ON ME… AND I HAVE HEARD NO MORE…  THE WOMAN HAD A DR APT YESTERDAY AND COULD NOT BRING HER DOWN--- TURNS OUT SHE WILL TRANSPORT FOR $2.50 A LADEN MILE--- AND IT IS 119 MILES--  SO THAT COULD BE A BARGAIN-- MAYBE T 18 YERS OLD, SHE LOADS… BUT MAYBE NOT-- AND SHE HAS TO WEIGH 1500 POUNDS???  LOOKS PERCHERON X DONKEY CROSS.
O

AND BEING WHITE SHE WILL BE GREAT FOR GRACE TO DECORATE -- AND EVERYONE ELSE CAN GIVE HER BATHS

TIME TO MAKE THE MONKEY FISTS… AND D SOME SERIOUS  THINKING ABOUT NEXT YEAR'S CALENDAR-- WE ARE HAVEING A SHAKEDOWN MEETING AT NOON TODAY---  MAY I REMIND THOSE COMING-- NO BLUEJEANS..

  1. It's too bad you don't live in the city where I used to manage the Postal Window Services (I'm now retired). We loved customers with big mailings like the calendars. It gave us a chance to shine. As soon as we saw you, someone was there to help and we carried everything. You had a choice between my office chair while you waited, or a free cup of coffee in our cafeteria (courtesy of one of the employees) where we'd call to let you know when we were almost done. This should be the way throughout the country. It made such a difference in our own attitudes about customer service that we did a better job all around; a definite return on our investment. I know that city still has someone to help in the lobby and they still get customer service awards from the city every year. Such a simple concept and such a huge effect on efficiency and service.

  3. Let me first say that your blogs are delightful and so informative.I just found them yesterday and have been doing a lot of back reading...I have been watching the cam for awhile.Well since the previous mom gave birth.This gal I have learned is called Chaos.Did she have a chaotic history as a pup? I love her name and would have used it for my big Newfoundland girlie if she wasn't already named Betsy as in "Heavens to Betsy" what will you get into next? Thank you for what you do!

  4. I received my calender and monkey fist today!!! Smiled all through the calender. Each picture is suitable for framing, such beautiful and handsome dogs. Love the monkey fist, it will be on my key chain. I will order other after the new year. Not to add to your quota Carlene. Thank you for all you do.
