HOW TO BREAK IN LINE AT THE POST OFFICE

................ Well, that title certainly doesn't sound in the spirit of the season, does it???

Well - it's a great story (sorry, no pictures)

Today, DH offered to mail the two boxes I mentioned in my last two posts on his lunch hour. So I packed them up, and he went by the post office at noon.

OH MY - but I forgot today is the VERY BUSIEST day for the post service of all the year - oh guilt, guilt, guilt - I should have done it myself...

So - he is there, standing in line, waiting, waiting, waiting...

And a conversation begins between him and some ladies in line:

"oh, what are you mailing"
DH: oh, these boxes have quilts in them...

"ooh, are they Christmas presents?"
DH: well, sort of - they are quilts for charities... "

" what kind of charities are they going to?"
DH: well, one box is going to NYC for families that have been homeless and now have new places to call home...

"OH, THAT'S SO WONDERFUL - WE DON'T WANT YOU TO STAND IN LINE. PLEASE GO TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE AND MAIL YOUR BOX"

ok, so that last part isn't exactly accurate... but the sentiment was the same.

..................... what a wonderful world we live in.

It's wonderful to hear how quilts bind people together, even strangers.

I think these would make WONDERFUL Halloween Trick or Treat Bags! I think that is so nice that you are letting your husband choose! :)

I love that you kitty George sleeps on yarn. My cats LOVE to cuddle with socks stuffed with catnip wrapped in leftover batting and tied with shoelaces! :)
