"A tip on Christmas."


          


It's been way too cold to take down Christmas decorations, so ours got taken down today. And I tried something new.

Rita is very particular as to how the ornaments are put away, and she has about 1000 of them. So, instead of gathering a batch, walking to her, waiting for her to wrap them and going for another batch, we got two five gallon buckets. And we filled one bucket, while she packed them away from the other bucket, then switched for the empty and went on.

And we got done about two or three hours faster than we did normally.

Just a bit more efficient than all the waiting was. And she was happier, because we weren't trying to pack any of them.

Thought it was worth passing on. (And we had only one fall and break, and that's much better than last year.)

I guess that simplifies packing it.

As a delivery driver I admire your employment of the ever handy five gallon bucket in your logistic schedule. Minimum breakage too. Very efficient.

Over on swank Post Oak Blvd. here in Houston, it is one of those rare public streets where a lot of effort has gone into beautification. It has a nice wide median that is ornated with all manner of cultivated flower. The whole year. And when the holidays arrive in fall, they really go all out.

But I'm afraid those are days gone past like the horse and buggy. They are widening Post Oak and I'm afraid the beautiful median is gonna be gone forever.

Time marches on.
