Words On Retirement...

I have to share with you the latest in my saga of being retired with my husband, also retired. He has been spending a lot of time on the computer lately and has become quite adept at ordering online. He has the UPS truck here quite frequently lately.

A couple of weeks ago he told me, "Honey, we will need a few boxes to mail gifts in and can use them for things we sale on Ebay so I went to and ordered some flat rate boxes. Now I thought that was a good idea, yes a very good idea as I have some vintage stuff on Etsy and it will fit. He finally did something useful. Or so I thought.

Today, our mail lady pulled in and started unloading all of these boxes, what on earth is going on???? I was very curious but watched from a distance while my husband talked to her and helped her carry the boxes into his shop. He came into the house with a very sheepish look on his face. "Honey, he says to me, I think I put my finger on the wrong spot on the USPS site. Instead of getting a box of 25 boxes, they just delivered 25 boxes of 25." That is 450 boxes so you do not have to do the math. And as usual, the next thing out of his mouth is, "Honey, can you call the post office and see how I can return all but 25 of these?"

Yes, Retirement is fun and at times can be quite unusual.

Don't forget to stop by my shop on Etsy to take advantage of the Bounty Holiday Sale that a few of us are having. Just search for ABHS to find some great deals. I have a few new items listed, here are a couple of them:
