Almost Missed It
My re-imaged computer was shipped back to me yesterday (one day earlier than I expected), and so I had it directed to my house rather than to the PO Box. Around mid-morning, I also got an e-mail telling me that my new glasses were ready for pickup. I didn't expect the FedEx shipment to arrive until sometime in the afternoon, and it's only 750 steps to the optician's office, so I walked down and got the new glasses.
As I left their office, I noticed that there was a gap through which I could get to a dirt trail that leads back to Front Street, where I live, cutting a couple of blocks off the return walk. I'm lucky I went that way, because as I came onto Front Street, I saw the FedEx van heading toward me, having pulled away from my house unable to make the delivery. Yeow! Coming down the street at a run was Lisa, who was waving at me to stop the driver.
Fortunately for me, the driver had a delivery to make at the Imerys diatomaceous earth processing plant between where I was and my house, so I intercepted him, produced my ID, and signed for my package. Whew!( Oh, About the Glasses?Collapse )
Besides the new regular glasses, I also got a set of prescription sunglasses, so I no longer have to scratch up my regular lenses (which have some rather expensive anti-glare coating) with clip-ons. Current Mood: working
