    …well you won’t find that heart in either one of those two.

    Golly gosh Burl’n’Joy, don’t be too extravagant in giving your letter carrier a Christmas tip. You wouldn’t want him/her to be embarrassed.
    And while you’re at it Joy, try shovelling another pound of Oreos into your maw; your thighs almost register on the Richter Scale when you walk. Aren’t those cookies those ones you liberated from the Dollar store while Burl was distracting them with a question about pricing?

    Wow, a whole dollar. Don’t spend it all in one place.

    That’s the kind of tip I got as a newsboy in 1971…

    Don’t talk too badly about the dollar stores. I got a really nice Rolex there the other day. And the food helps save money on lighting ’cause it glows in the dark.

    I got a really nice COUCH purse for my wife there as well…the only thing was the tag that said: “Do not get water on this….EVER”.

    They judge the cheapness and crassness of others while not realizing they are the Benchmark.

    good one! Only thing missing today is crumbs on Joy’s face, and Susan. It’s early for me, but way late for her; I’ll check over at the Tiki.

    I bought my wife a Coach bag from a guy in the parking lot. Cost $10. She carried that suckah for about two years.
    I wish the folks here at work would just cram cheap cookies in a tin. This lady made about 10 different kinds of treats. I have gaind 10 lbs in the last week.

    if you don’t want to bake don’t make tins up. I remember as a kid the lady next door did the same thing and was hurt when her kids empty the of home made goods my mom made up we brought over and hers was still full of the store bought cookies. Got figure my mom would spend at least a week of baking, and the neighbor 30 minutes at the store. :)

    Last year I was at home and went to the Christmas archery shoot (which also has a pot-luck breakfast; archery events are always pretty much at dawn because parks prefer that we clear the space of such dangers before crowds arrive who are not used to arrows).
    I took home baked amaretti and butterscotch and I also sampled all the other home made treats. I did not overdo it because at least 1/2 the contributions were storebought. It’s OK; not everyone can or will cook.

    Yes, in the office it cn be way too tempting. The last few places I worked in AZ after moving there, there were ALWAYS Krispy Cremes and those 3-popcorn tins arriving in the break room. Working from home now (when I get any) I eat my own food and can easily control my weight.

    And in case you’re desirous of doing better by your mail carrier than the Pennys do by theirs, the rules are: No cash, no checks. Gifts and gift cards are okay up to $20. Baked goods okay.

    I always wonder about tipping mailmen, garbagemen, etc, if just a small amount of “customers” gave any amount of cash, the recepient makes out big time, just a dollar may be lame, but if a large number of people give a dollar it can be pretty good
