It's Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas...

…now that my on-line orders are streaming in courtesy of UPS and Fed-Ex. I swear, this couldn’t be more fun…unless they were all for me…

Two of my favorites arrived today: a Christmas tree ornament from Katherine Hepburn’s estate for Annie (who bears a striking resemblance to the late actress) and for my dad, the personally inscribed memoirs of a fellow P-38 pilot.

Yes, Internet shopping is a dream come true. No wasting gas while you circle the mall parking lot…no bumping up against short-tempered, germ-laden shoppers…no long lines at the cash register…

In short, no muss—no fuss.

Click, click, click. Abracadabra, you’re done.

Now, if only we could get the folks at PayPal into the wrapping business, life would be perfect.

I know exactly what you mean! I love getting all the boxes piled up in front of my door...even if none of them are for me...yet!

And, in addition to wrapping--which would be awesome since I am not fond of wrapping one teeny bit--can we get them to pay for them, too??

I'm there with ya. Came home today to two boxes at the front door. More are to follow if my e-mail confirmations are correct. Mall, crowded aisles, short tempers, tired feet and snotty-nosed brats crying--not to mention the bad musak version of Christmas music? NO THANKS!
