Recently I went to a city Post Office. I was there about 20 minutes before I got to post my letter. They use to have a machine to buy stamps but for some reason they took them out and I had to buy my stamp at the desk. One stamp. That is all I got. I am so use to using my computer to pay bills and send emails to my friends that when I need a stamp every now and then I am amazed at how slow the mail really is. How about you. Have you gone to the Post Office recently?

A man died today. He was like a brother I admired. He was in his late 50's, laid down to take a nap and never woke up. The world makes a turn and changes when someone close to me dies. Like an Era ends, the weather gets colder, and the glass is half empty. How are your friends today? Keep them close because when the leaves fall off the tree. They fall pretty hard sometimes.

I signed up for a computer class. I am learning Microsoft Excel. I can follow along pretty good in the class but using my memory afterward is a bit tough. Learning something new when you are older is a challenge. You can teach an old dog new tricks though. Well not a lot of new tricks maybe a couple. I did get a Certificate of Achievement. I was going for the lollipop but they did not have any. The best thing was I got paid to take the class and learn something. Which I did. It is more fun to be paid to learn than pay to learn. I seem to be repeating my posts, which leads to the same question,"Have you learned anything new?"

I hate going to town and have to deal with meter parking. Mostly because you only get so much time which always seems to be too little time. The most you can get is 2 hours on the meter. Then you have to move your car to another parking meter because you cannot "feed the meter." Meaning you cannot put more money in the same meter to get more time parking. The city does not want you in the same parking space for more than two hours. If you do feed the meter you get a fine. I know this because I fed the meter now I am a feed the meter felon. How is parking in your city?

On a car dashboard an area exists that turns on malfunctioning stuff affecting your car. These lights can tell you if your car is overheating, oil is low, and even that you need to inflate your tires. Sometimes these engine lights go on even though there is nothing wrong because of a fuse or a short in your electrical system. These lights drive me to distraction and I wonder if my car is going to blow up if one of these lights go on. Are you affected by these warning lights?
