I threw away of shredded 38 years of every bill I ever received in perfect order before we move here. Now all bills come by email.

I clean the emails out every morning before I get my NOTHING on. Dew, I understand. It's organized.

If it is for real, I gotta tellya, I luv it. Never heard that one before. Hey, everybody's got something.

Part II:

Dear Nucky,

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I spoke too soon.

I just found out that if Mr. Boomer installs the switch plates, the screws must line up north and south. But he does not change the old ones -- yet.

Also, I just learned that a friend of mine has to have all of the screws in her house lining up east and west. She has broken switch plates, trying to get them just right. She said so far she does this only at her own house.

Now, I know I will never again look at switch plate screws in quite the same way. - - - - - Same way? ------- Actually, I had never looked at them before -- now.

Isn't it wonderful how TOTV helps us to learn to see things differently.
