I just got this email which makes me very happy.

Dear Susan,

Thanks so much for your thoughtful note about Carla and Don going out of their way to get your wallet back to you.  I’ve forwarded your letter to them and their supervisor, and to their supervisor’s supervisor and so on along the line.  I know both Carla and Don are really hard workers and I’m not a bit surprised—although very gratified—to hear that they’re good Samaritans too.
Again, thanks for taking the time to write and for your encouraging words!

I don't think I could have asked for a better response.


I spent way too much at Costco but now that I type the sentence, I realize how non-news it is. I really only got food which is a really poor excuse for someone who has Anita cook for her once a month! Holy moly.  All of it is for the freezer except the tangerines.  They really do have the best tangerines of anyone.


I so hate to get my hair cut that this morning I looked and, for the millionth time, convinced myself that today it looked ok enough to get by.  But, rather than come home from Costco, I just plugged Rudy's into the GPS and went.  The joint was packed.  I asked the receptionist guy if today was National Get Your Haircut Day!  But, I read my book and almost even enjoyed the wait.  The woman who cut my hair did a FABULOUS job.  She cut off all the dead ends and shaped the rest without cutting length, just what I wanted. It really does look way better.  And she only charged me half what they usually do. So, of course, she got twice the tip.  As I was leaving the receptionist thanked me for participating in National Get Your Haircut Day. Cracked me up.


I just turned on the heater for the first time in a week or so.  Usually, I can get by with throwing on more clothes but today's cold isn't responding to sweater therapy.


I need to get up and go freezer package the rest of the Costco haul.  The up side to a cold house is that you don't have to hurry to get stuff into the fridge or freezer.
