When Dottie told me that she needed a quick, easy, and inexpensive resource to be able to buy a new sax mouthpiece for students it didn’t take me long to go online and check out a few websites. I think that the Internet is a wonderful resource to use. Sometimes the websites will indicate that the company has a brick and mortar store that you can go to and pick up the item you want to purchase, but if that is not an option, you can often order things online through the website, or use a phone number (provided) to place the order. I like having all of those different options to choose from! Makes shopping so much easier than the old days when all you had was a local telephone directory with Yellow Pages to look at!
I wonder how getting ready for a night out is different for a girl than it is for us guys? I know that I’m making plans to go out and checked the movie schedule, the car has a full gas tank, I showered and groomed (of course!) and I’m not even going to show up all that hungry – I ate a sandwich so I don’t look like a pig when we get to the restaurant. I wonder if I cleaned up the house and bought some breakfast food if that would look like I was being presumptious or insult her? So I didn’t do that. LOL
My new neighbor, Barry, is a really nice guy. He gave me a natural herbal digestive underberg collectors tin as a “thank-you” gift for my coming over to help them move some of their furniture into their house the other day. I told him that I collected tins, and within a few moments he was unpacking a box and pulled out this tin and gave it to me! I had never heard of underberg before he gave me the tin!
Looks like someone new is moving into the house a few doors down. There is a Budget Rental truck parked in the yard. I can’t see any people moving about from my living room window. Maybe in a little while I will walk down there and say hello. I like to be neighborly and let any new neighbors know that if they need any advice about the local merchants, that they can count on me to steer them in the right direction.
One of the things that I like to do after the holidays is do some bargain hunting. You never know what you might find! For example, I just found some reduced prices on retired itmes on the collectible dept 56 christmas in the city online. I can’t imagine why they would reduce the price on an item that has been retired! Seems to me that once it was retired it would increase in value! What do you think?
