Someone at the door came knocking

Very soon after getting home from breakfast at McDs, I started right in on the pictures from graduation.
There are many in the folder.  I did the choosing for my purpose, the crop and re-sizing, the Enhance Focus, made a couple in shades of grey.  Some of them will be seen here, so stay tuned.

I sent out a request to my Technician about how to write a caption under the picture.
The e-mail Reply will take some deciphering, but by crackies, if I can crochet a pineapple pattern bookmark, I will put words and pictures together so you all can see ‘em!

Some I got prints made at WALGREEN’s, then made my picture pages at KINKO’s for the putting into envelopes for folks who won’t get on the ‘Net and for my carry-around book.

In late afternoon, a truck pulled up in front of the house.  Just a regular ol’ pick-up, no advertising sign on the door or anything.
I asked the guys if anybody is expected, but Shrug.

A lady rang the bell, so DoF and I went to the door together.
She held out a wrapped package and said it is a delivery from the bookstore.

I looked from her to the truck and back again.

Then she explained that she didn’t want the sender to have to pay a Delivery Fee, so she just brought it herself.  It seems she lives two streets over, and our house is on her way home.
Is that Personal Service or what!?!

Husband caught on quicker than I did.  He thanked her as she was leaving the porch.

He turned to me and asked what’s in there?

It is the bookmark mentioned in my last post.
It seems one of my regular readers knows how to get items to move across whole states to bring about wonderful surprises.

Thank You, Mary!  I didn’t realize the Maxine doll would get such a nice topping….
~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Diane, I really enjoyed the story about your Dad and his dimes in the comment section on my site; and you’re right, I think you should write more stories like that one! They do bring back good memories and you have a natural writing style as well.

    Good luck with the Walgreens photos. My experience with their chain has been hit or miss. Sometimes I’ll get good photos from them. Other times, the photos have a green or blue cast. Haven’t had any success when it comes to enlarging photos and having them develop it. I’m currently looking for another photo site to use instead. Walgreens is about a mile from us, so I find them very convenient. just wish they’d get their photography act together. lol

    And my heartiest congratulations on your graduation! Any child that has you for their teacher or mentor will be a lucky child indeed.

    Can’t wait to see the photos. And what a nice gesture. The bookmark is very cool.

    I usually just take my photos to Wal-Mart and upload them on one of their machines. In about an hour the photos are ready. You can also do cropping, red eye, etc. on their machines.

    You should try shutterfly.com . That is where I upload all of my photos to, and their prints are amazing, and I always receive them in like 2-3 days. Plus they are always running specials where you get free prints or majorly discounted prints. I love the site. They also have a flickr like photo sharing thing. I’ve got a link to mine on my site.

    You are entirely welcome. Thank you for printing a picture of it. I can see why it fit the occasion.

    I’ll be looking forward to the graduation pictures.

    Just remember with a computer, a telephone, a hubby, and some great people (Barnes & Noble employees) at the other end there is nothing you can’t accomplish.

    Congratulations on graduating. I am so happy for you. So many choices lie ahead for you and I know the right career waits just around the corner.

    That is so lovely about the bookmark. It is true – it is never too late. I was in my mid twenties when a mentor stated the obvious to me asking what was stopping me from going to uni if that was what I wanted. I did what was needed and made the entrance and then the first year. Life overtook and I never finished but that is OK.

    Mega congrats on your Graduation :-)
