I must say that Amazon got my last few items here yesterday. Three days ahead of their declared schedule of 30 November.

It has taken me a bit to realize that the US Postal Service is part of the Amazon delivery service. USPS has a ‘contract’ with UPS, because, I’m informed, they use the same airlines to fly the stuff.

Which was news to me. I was startled to find the postman holding out my package yesterday and did ask, after all.

I hated to see it.

If the USPS has a contract with UPS, that means that FedEx doesn’t. That means the US Government, in an effort to “Improve” the mail service, and reduce cost has gone in conclusion with a private company and it will be unfair competition for the non-aligned company’s.

T’ain’t fair trade.

One way to judge the fairness of it all is the quiet way it was done. No fan fair or trial balloons. Just all of a sudden the USPS is working for Amazon.

Anyhow, my purchases are working as planned. I can now see the books of my hobby and even read the notes on the page. Excellent. Damn those ceiling fan lights to hell, anyway. Who needs them?

I do have a note under the right hand clicker of the computer mouse. I cannot remember what I copied, however, so there isn’t much of a lead-in. Right after copying the headlines I got to daydreaming how I was going to WOW the NY Met by writing a complete unit  piece and have them perform it on the natural amphitheater here in the Flint Hills near Strong City.

No one can say age is an inhibitor of day dreams and stupidity.

Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned.

More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
