RE: haircut

Good friends have been through it. Hair grows again, more beautiful than before. Some get body, some get texture, some get a color they like better. Most of all, We're praying for healing!

RE: Anyone else not full timing because of the grand kids?

In the past 3 years our 2 children have joined the joyful ranks of Grandparents, so it's not ultra important if we are close at hand all the time. It's time to step aside and let them attend to the "details", and we can relax. At least that's how we see it. Someone made the remark that Great Grandparents are "excess baggage" but I wouldn't go that far. I'm just thankful our kids step up to the plate.

RE: UPS/USPS collaberation

My rural mailbox is one tenth of a mile from the house. The only time the postal delivery person comes to my door is if there is a package too large for the box. Sometimes, if the weather is nice, the carrier just props the package between the boxes. UPS and FedEx will always bring the package to my door, no matter what size it is. In this particular instance, the package weighed about a pound, and was about 4.25 inches square and about 7.25 inches long. It fit in the mailbox. Yes, it arrived in the mail yesterday. Unless things have changed, your mail is for USPS deliveries only. UPS and FedX are not to use those boxes.

RE: UPS/USPS collaberation

This collaboration between UPS and USPS has been going on for at least two years - I believe they call it Smartpost. UPS delivers to the nearest USPS and they deliver it to your home. It's less expensive since the Brown Truck doesn't have to go into all the neighborhoods. It only takes one day longer unless they delivered it to the post office on a Saturday. That is the problem. I do not get home mail delivery in my town. Everything goes to your PO box, and you must go to the PO building to get your mail. The USPS will not put the mail in your box unless it has the box number (postal regulations), even though this is a small town and the postal workers all know everybody. UPS will not accept a PO box number in the address, so we must 'hide' the box number in the street address. It is a big mess. Your postal worker might not put it in your mail box, but our guy does. Maybe he's not supposed to, but he does.

RE: Travis trailer vs 5 th wheel

26 foot trav trailer and we like to spend no less than a week (preferably 1month) before moving. We try to keep it simple with no "do-dads" but it's still work to hook up and get on the road. Years ago, we spent a month and a half in an A frame and it was simple set up in less than a couple of minutes and we moved almost every day. Those were the days !

Do you use a Butter Bell ?

Want to get a butter bell. Tremain seems to be "the brand" to get? What do you have? Some say butter will keep for a month, some say 5 days. All work on same principal, so why the difference? Thanks for owner input.

RE: Dirty Silverware at a Restaurant. What would you do?

I'd most likely ask to see a shift manager, show it to them and tell him/her this is why we're not staying. Thank you very much.

Handy shoelaces

Shoelaces can be handy for camping. I tie cupboard handles together with a leather shoelace to keep them closed while moving. I left the sensor for our indoor/outdoor thermometer at a campground when I laid it aside before leaving, we had To order a replacement. Now I use a shoelace to tie it in plain sight to the hand bar. From now on, when we ditch an old pair of shoes, I will probably wash up the laces, if they're good, and store them away for future camping uses.

RE: We have no heat

Gas water heater gave up Christmas morning. Family had been here the week before, so we were lucky there, but we did have two young house guests. HVAC man came, it was to be replaced and we'd get it as soon as possible. Monday was a Holiday, others were ahead of us until Wed, so we did the best and I remembered Mom putting water on to heat before we sat up to eat, then water was hot to do dishes so we did that. Also found her 30 cup non elec coffee pot and heated water for the bath tub. We had sewer, lights, heat, cold water so we were just fine and our guests didn't mind at all, they go tent camping a lot so all ok. And if we really needed a hot shower, we could have imposed on any of our good neighbors. Water heaters have really gotten expensive, let me warn you !

RE: Annoying phone calls

I'm Scandinavian so when these pests call, I get into my foreign language mode. They ask me to get someone who speaks English and I'm smiling on the other end. Pretty soon they hang up, hopefully they flag my number "do not call".

RE: Annoying phone calls

I am sick of them too, not on my cell (mine still has a dial:) I answer the home phone "Good morning/ afternoon Holmes county sheriffs office LT BLAH, fraud division, may I assist you" most calls have stopped here at home. Funny!

RE: What To Do With the Sticks & Bricks

Your list covers everything I did last year, only issue was our local post office folks are pretty bad, took almost 2 weeks after the date I asked for mail forwarding before it actually took place. Good thing my son stopped by the house and picked it up every few days till it stopped. It was supposed to go to his house cross town. Going to start the forward 2 weeks before we leave this year, which reminds me, that's next week. Add: Changed all bills that can use autopay to autopay, stopped by the town hall and prepaid any bills from them that come in. Had the oil tanks filled. Put a bunch of cash in the checking for autopay. Local post office people have nothing to do with forwarding mail these days. it's completely out of their hands and handled by a forwarding office. Depending on management at Forwarding, they can be good . . . or horrible. All local PO ppl do is have you fill out a forwarding card, then turn it in to Forwarding, wherever that may be. We have good luck and no problems so we are fortunate.
