I ordered it from Amazon. The writeup says it's a nice iron so I imagine it is. It'll be nice when we get it.
Amazon shipped it with the new and improved UPS service called "Surepost." That, like Fedex's "Smartpost" take the packages and ship them to a town close to the addressee, then give them to the local post office so they can have a little love too. Then the post office sends it to whoever it belongs to. In my case these packages arrive in Portland, then are sent to Newport, a little town about 40 miles south of us where they sit for a few days, then are given to the post office who sticks them in a sack and sends them back to Portland, where they are sorted and then sent to me the next day.
They could save lots of gas and energy if they would just give it to the mail guy in Portland in the first place. I don't get it.............
But Mrs. R_G will be thrilled when it comes in any case, I'm sure.
It used to be we bought little presents, or flowers, or whatever for our wives and girlfriends because we wanted to be nice, and yes, because we thought that if we did that we might well, "get lucky" that night. In today's world we still buy the little presents, or flowers, or whatever, but it's more in the hope that that night we'll get supper.
When did the world change?
I don't get it.
