ON THE BACK BURNER

April 11

I went to the grocery store today and there was no line in the express line. I diligently count my items. I sometimes count as one an item that I have two of. After all they are the same thing. Works for me. I went to the store to get three things. I came out with a few extra items, but forgot the one thing that I really needed and went specifically to get. Stamps. I am so glad that they are sold in grocery stores now. Our local post office always has such a line for services. I use to go to a little post office that sold trinkets, junky ,kitschy things. People knew each other. Then it closed.Just one day, it wasn't there. I needed stamps to send a get well card to a daughter's mother in law. I  use to have engraved stationary and even engraved post cards. How times have changed. I receive cards every now and then but I can not remember the last time that I got a hand written letter. I think that kids don't learn cursive any more either. I remember that my father had that beautiful handwriting that I think was called Spenser.Nice and flowing. I have a problem writing straight .I write uphill. Maybe that is an indicator of my outlook on life. that's better tan down hill. right?

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
