At the Mazda dealer hopefully getting the M6 ready for a short “vacation” to Florida.

I think my letter carrier (née “postman”) is one of the worst in the system. Three times in as many months I have been delivered the mail for the same house number for the next street over, and yesterday I was delivered jury duty notice (I assume from the information on the envelope) for one of my next-door neighbors. I only wonder what important things I have not received…

  1. Yesterday I tipped off the air in all tires and reset the TPMS. Want to take a guess at what happened as I drove to Hennessy Mazda this morning?

    • My confidence in this Mazda dealer is even lower as they are trying to tell me that there is nothing wrong with the tires — after I told them that the air pressure in one was low yesterday and the TPMS light came on as I drove to Morrow. 🤬

  2. Sitting at the Mazda dealer wondering why people willingly watch the drivel known as “morning television”.

    While at the dealer, I’d be speaking to the service manager and asking what they plan to do to fix this permanently. This has been a complete waste of your time.

    Debbie let the horses out yesterday afternoon to stretch their legs, and they were ready to come in from the cold rain when I went to give them their dinner. Phinney had on a raincoat, but Mac looked feral, as he has all his hair and was soaked and muddy.

    Salmon and roasted Brussel sprouts for dinner (Home Chef). The sprouts had a mayo and Shirracha dressing. Tasty.

    Check out Informed Delivery from USPS. You get an email with images of all the mail you are supposed to receive. This way you will know if you miss something.

      I have been using this service for nearly two years because my mail carriers have been awful as well. There still are some times when they fail to take a photo of a mailpiece, but they get most of it. Now if I could just get folks to deliver packages to the correct porch… that’s an even worse issue in my ‘hood!

    • Huh, good to know. Thanks.

  5. I shan’t be visiting Hennessy Mazda again, and I may be one step closer to being a Subaru Crosstrek owner.

      bummer for all the trouble – but………..
      yippie!!! I need another Hippie Lesbian Subaru friend!
      I bet you can get a decent trade-in on that Mazda – you don’t have to tell them what all has happened.
      I’ll go car shopping with you………..
      I had a female sales person- Stephanie – she was really nice & not pushy at all.

    • Steve says:

      I think a note to the regional service manager is in order. This has been a CF from the get go.

    had a little Mexican dinner last night – Mike Mende came over since Steph is out of town, and I joke with him I want him to eat more than frozen pizza all week. Its been a while since we’ve had a chance to catch up – being a teacher is TOUGH – especially in middle school. How he keeps doing it year after year is amazing, the administration doesn’t let you teach, its all about reports & rankings, etc. From the stories he tells, I really am worried about this country as these kids grow up & have to be adults.
    Sally joined us too – can you believe she decided not to do the GUTS run in the lovely weather last night? I’m shocked she didn’t go out anyway.

  7. I just had an early lunch at Jimmy John’s. I think I can best describe what I ate as a mayonnaise sandwich, because that’s pretty much all I tasted. It’s a good thing that I like mayonnaise, but…

    Next time I’ll pay attention to the sandwich maker.

    Update on the Midtown Whole Foods (which may also give someone who will remain nameless closer proximity to picking up Amazon packages):


    • Never been a WF shopper but am oddly looking forward to this one’s opening.

    • Stacy Fox says:

      I dig the Whole Foods sometimes. During the holidays they always had the traditional “holiday feast” on the hot bar: turkey, ham, taters, casseroles, etc. Though I wouldn’t eat that way all the time, it was nice for a holiday meal when I couldn’t join friends or family. Sure, it was something like $15, but I’d have paid more for that if I had gone out to eat. 🙂 Every now and again I treat myself there. (the one on Ponce is currently closest)

  9. Barb says:

    Decided on this cold wet day I needed a chicken pot pie for lunch – so went to the Big Chicken. I never paid attention, but they have knee socks as a souvenir – but they were $1400! So, I didn’t buy any.
