A first...I thinkIt hasn't been the best of days. I had no internet this AM (a morning without Humzoo is like a day without sunshine) but had no time to troubleshoot the problem. I hoped it would be working when I got home.
Odd day and I was very tired. All the poor eating and excessive Christmas activities caught up with me. I struggled to stay awake. I told Richie I wanted to come home and nap. Oddly, I forgot all about the internet with the crazy day.
Lots of traffic coming home. I don't usually drive so even more tired when I got here after dealing with the traffic.
I open my mailbox and there is one envelope. It looks odd. No address, no postage. The stalkers, the paparazzi, now some mysterious mail in my mailbox.
With some hesitation, I open the barely sealed envelope. Card. Cute Christmas card. Even the fuzzy bear didn't help me relax my suspicions.
Leerily I opened the card.
I think this is the first card I ever got from my mail carrier. Apparently Hector was quite taken with his cookies and took the time to thank me. He also very sweetly folded the tarp I used to cover the boxes when he came to pick up my carrier pickup packages yesterday. I went out this AM to bring the tarp in and couldn't find it. "Surely, I thought, he didn't take it...." No, he tucked it behind a planter to make sure it stayed put.
Unfortunately I had to come in the house, discover the missing internet and lose my warm&fuzzy feeling but, Hector, your note did more than you probably thought it would. It kept me sane when I discovered my nearly brand new Airport Extreme died unceremoniously last night and I have to limp along with my old Super G router and network drops and slowness for the holidays (at least for work--luckily my MacBook Pro doesn't suffer from this malady).
Thanks, Hector, my mail carrier, for making my Christmas bright. Maybe I'll put another package of cookies in the mailbox for you before Christmas. Any mail carrier who spells yummmmie with 4 Ms can't be all bad.
