This year, for father’s day, instead of buying my father a box of cigars, as I have been doing for so many years, I have decided to buy him a nice set of cigar cutters. He has been complaining about his current cigar cutters and I know that he hasn’t gone out and bought new ones, as of yet.
Since Father’s Day is coming up in just over a months time I think that I will go ahead and start looking around online and see what is out there on the World Wide Web. We really don’t have any tobacco stores around here, the closest one is over an hour and a half’s drive from here and I rarely go to that part of the state. Online is the way to go. I’ll be looking for free shipping and discounts along the way. I’m in no hurry, but I don’t want to wait until the last minute either.
The world is getting smaller every day it seems. The friends that I grew up with have all scattered around the globe. I am so glad that we have email and texting to keep in touch! I miss them all very much and love to hear from them and hear how they are doing, how their families are, who they are working for (or who is working for them!) and how life is treating them in general. Pictures are always a plus.
I do find myself nostalgic from time to time, wishing that we all still lived close together. I miss the great times we had together, the parties we had, the great group dates we went on. Oh dear, I’m depressing myself!
And don’t even get me started on all the wonderful things that Facebook and the other social networking sites. You won’t catch me anywhere near all that drama that is responsible for ruining so many relationships in so many ways and on so many levels. Thanks but no thanks, real life is difficult enough to handle just the way it is without everyone, everywhere knowing your business and everyone elses.
I have always enjoyed seeing the nice wood armouries that different people have their bedrooms and guest rooms. I’ve seen some real sweet jewelry armouries online recently that I’ve been contemplating purchasing. You can get some nice deals online these days. I look for free shipping (both ways of course) and other incentives for online shoppers, discount codes and coupons are always welcomed.
Researching your purchase online is a whole lot faster and easier and takes a lot of the guess and leg work out of the task. My mother took me to the local Sam’s Club last week, she has been a member with them for a long time and I always enjoy going with her looking at all of their great deals. They had some armouries that we were seriously looking at together, checking out the different sizes, the different pretty shades of wood and prices. I never really realized all the different types that they have out these days.
Now that I’ve seen some up close and personal like I feel better about looking online to find the best deal or possibly going back to Sam’s with my mother. One way or another I’m going to own a nice looking wooden armouries of my very own, especially since my mother intends to pass her’s down to my older sister to be kept in the family.
It really all boils down to what you get used to. I remember an interview that I attended way back in they day. This manager during this initial interview was all about how we are all “Creatures of Habit” and “It’s All In Who You Know and Who You Are Related To” both are very good points and things that we could discuss until the end of time and still have plenty to say about.
I got that job and this manager was really the best manager that I have ever had the pleasure to work for and along side of. I remember how upset I was after only working there for one year that he was being transferred and a new guy was coming in. It went down hill from there, but I still in touch with some of the good folks that I worked there with and from what I hear this particular manager is still employed with them and is doing just fine and I always send my regards with the people that are still in touch with him after all these years. I would love to be able to use him as a reference in any future employment searches.
Twill Cover for Body Pillow
And yes I am most definitely am a creature of habit and I worry sometimes how I would survive if a disaster of a magnificent magnitude occurred, since I have become so dependent of so many things for my comfort and enjoyment on a daily and nightly basis for most of my life. The one thing that comes right to mind is my pillow, if it isn’t my pillow then I don’t get the sleep I need. I really should have bought two of them at the time, if I had only known! And if I don’t have one of my body pillows (thank goodness I have three of them and am always looking for new ones to try) I fear that I would be up all night and that wouldn’t be healthy for me or anyone else around me!
I can’t believe that I let such a pile build up in my bedroom of junk, like old newspapers, magazines, the local Yellow Pages, old expired coupons and the like. I’m glad though that I do recycle and that all of these are paper products that can be recycled when I go into the part of town that has the recycling containers for the residences of this county to use. I wish that it wasn’t so far away and wasn’t on the side of town that is out-of-the-way for the majority of people to take advantage of. It is most unfortunate but most folks are still not participating in any type of recycling efforts at home or at work, and if you don’t make it easy for them then they just aren’t going to do a darned thing.
These days if I want to do local search for someone or some place all I have to do is go online to sites like local.com and I can find the local restaurants, pet stores, shoe stores, auto repair, etc with just a few clicks on my keyboard, so who needs the paper version of the phone book these days. Of course if you are still in the dark ages and don’t have Internet access you would still rely on the paper version, I just hope that when you are done with them that you would have the common sense and the decency to recycle them, just like I’m planning on doing. We all need to do what we can in order to be a “green” as possible these days and recycling is a big part of becoming “green” in today’s crazy world.
