WHAT A DAY! I had to go to two post offices to get mail. I got lost going to the last one and when I got there it was the wrong post office. Luckily, they figured out which one I should go to and gave me directions. We had a ton of mail today. Queenie didn't even offer to help sort the mail. I guess she figured that she was too good. Then when she came to get the mail for her side of the floor, she only got her own mail. Tomorrow should be better. After I go to the post offices, I have to go let someone into our old operations center.

I ran all my errands tonight so that tomorrow I can come home and rest. I went to Publix to do some last minute Thanksgiving shopping. I dropped a can of cranberry sauce (yes, I eat it) and it went rolling across the floor. I chased after it. When I picked it up, this man said, "I was going to get that for you." Kind of surprised me, since he didn't seem to make an effort. I bought 5 cans of peas, 6 cans of carrots and 6 cans of tomato sauce for the Advent baskets for church. They gave me some paper bags to repack them. They are so nice there. They are a lot nicer than the Food World where my mother lives. I went in there Saturday to get some Diet Pepsi that was on sale. When I got to the register, the checker told me that I had to have a $15 additional purchase to get them on sale. I said that it had never been required before. She told me that they were cracking down. She told me to go get $7 more in groceries. I told her that I didn't want anything else. I paid for my peas and my magazine and left. You'd think that they would be eager to sell me whatever since there weren't that many cars in the parking lot in the middle of the Saturday afternoon just before Thanksgiving.

Oh, I wish we had Publix...if I go all the way to Huntsville there is one. We have the Piggly-Wiggly. And it is just filthy and the teenagers who work there just run the show as far as I can tell.

I'm glad you are keeping up with that crazy mail situation okay!
