Sacked and Sent


I finally made it to the post office. They were understaffed today because of the holiday, but the wait time was nominal with two clerks and the supervisor stepping up to the counter when the line snaked through the door. The lobby was busy as usual with a single line in front of the kiosk, and another in front of the blue door; both somehow blend to ebb and flow as slowly as molasses mixing with melting butter atop pancakes. People are so patient at the post office. 

True to form, the passport crowd didn't seem capable of managing bored youngsters in need of corralling; other customers always seem to do a better job of getting them to behave with a "careful now," averting near-miss collisions with experienced navigation tactics. Entire families blocked the main entrance and the passageway to post office boxes. Some things never change. 

I found the perfect finish for this "mail" bag. And I managed to leave out the stash of stuff I'd put together for fun, but no matter, there's always another day. Receipts from Oo Oh La La and Texas Art Supply make the best stationery since theirs are the largest. I managed to write a fairly decent "letter" on back. And . . . I stapled it to the bag! *grin* So, it's been sacked and sent. Ne-x-xt!

    1. Thank you. And thanks for reminding me of the holiday. It won't stay in the forefront for some reason or other. I'm glad you got a nice Easter card! Hope you get at least one chocolate egg too. :) Our HOA is hosting an egg hunt and offering photos with the Easter Bunny. We saw a "little person" dressed as a white rabbit yesterday. I was startled! It took awhile for my brain to piece it together. LOL.

      Aw, it's not personal crap. I'd like to see your card. Let me know if you start another blog though. :)
