Good morning. Today is probably going to be a gray drying out day. It rained through most of the night so everything is soaked. Temps today should stay in the fifties.
Yesterday's package never did arrive. I called Fedex and was told that one of the drivers was out sick and therefore several packages (mine included) would not be delivered until today. It would have been nice if they had notified me. So today I'm keeping a watch to see when the package comes.
I also did a bit of research about the check that came in the mail. It seems that it was payment for a book that had come in the mail that I had not ordered and sent back. I guess this is something we have to watch out for. When you return something that you did not order, you should also check your credit cards to see if the company has already been paid for the (un-ordered) item. In this case, the company had billed a credit card that I had used when I purchased an earlier item. Are they supposed to keep your credit information on file?
Well, I finished reading my book "Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker." It was a great book and I recommend it for anyone, especially history buffs. In the book, I learned that the Dressmaker, Elizabeth Keckley, had written a book. So, I found it on Amazon and ordered it. It should arrive tomorrow.
Do you remember the old saying "If my mother were alive today, she'd be rolling over in her grave" ? Well my mother would definitely be rolling. Over and over. Some of today's newer TV commercials would have my mother rolling in fits. She was old school and there were some things that we just never talked out loud about. Anyone in my age group will know what those taboo subjects were.
The latest of these commercials is about a birth control product. It starts out with a woman in an all pink room, saying "Welcome to my vagina." She's expecting company, and tells us all about her newest birth control item. Oh Lord, my poor mother!
Then to make matters worse, I went to look something up on Google and this article popped up.
