Life as we know it will resume tomorrow.

In this post: A Costco emergency, groundbreaking news from Amazon, celebrating veterans.

While Sam is on his way to Costco for emergency supplies — breakfast burritos, potato salad, frozen hamburgers, sushi and a sack of pistachios — I’ve got a HUGE ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME ANNOUNCEMENT to share with you. According to news reports this morning, Amazon has hooked up with the U.S. Postal Service to begin DELIVERING CRAP ON SUNDAYS! They’ll start right away with New York and Los Angeles, then expand to Dallas, Houston, Phoenix and New Orleans in 2014. I’m so excited I could have a brain hemorrhage!

And as long as I’m on the subject, I just added the following product to my Amazon Subscribe & Save plan ... Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Thingies. Other subscriptions in my November shipment will include Scotch Brite scrubby sponges, zero-calorie Miracle Rice, Tone Oatmeal & Shea Butter body wash and Hi Lo Vanilla Almond cereal. Apparently my SweetLeaf Apricot Nectar drops are out of stock. (Damn.)

We’re expecting our first real blast of “winter” here in north Texas this week! In case you don’t believe me, here’s the latest forecast chart from so you can check out Tuesday’s high and low temperatures. Please send mittens, socks and soup at your earliest convenience. I like minestrone.
Before I forget, Happy Veterans Day from our house to yours! In case you’re wondering, there is no mail delivery today, and banks, federal offices and the Securities and Exchange Commission are closed, but never fear ... it’s still trash day in Mesquite and “People’s Court” will be in session. Life as we know it will resume tomorrow.

Thank you for reading this.
