The Kindness of Strangers - Update!

Believe it or not, I'm actually going to write a short post today! Hey, hey, I heard that gasping all the way over here - it's not THAT shocking! Well, okay, maybe it is! Truth be told I've got lots to do today so the blog has to take a backseat for a little while - believe it or not!

Before I venture out into the cold, though, I wanted to do a quick update about the post concerning the package with Jamie's glasses that a kind stranger offered to mail for me at the post office last Tuesday. For those who need yet another bit of proof that not only do kind strangers exist but that they do what they say they're going to do - Jamie's glasses arrived in Florida on Friday just as if I had mailed them myself. I was right to trust that really nice guy at the post office and my faith in human nature has gone up a couple more notches. Thanks again, Kind Stranger!

Now, before I go, let me just remind you once again to enter the Mouseski's Photographic Musings contest that I'm holding that ends next Monday with a couple of cool prizes. I've gotten some great comments from folks on my pictures over at RedBubble and I really appreciate those who have taken the time to register and leave them. Thanks for going that extra mile!

Now, speaking of going an extra mile, I'm outta here - hope everyone has a great Monday wherever you are and whatever you're doing!

  1. Yay! Kind Stranger gives me hope that there are still kind, considerate people in the world! And that is a very good thing.

    Happy Monday, Linda. Drive safe and stay warm.

  9. I'm taking a break from cleaning out my pantry and cupboards...the only problem is, now that I'm sitting down at the computer, will I want to get back up after???? lol

    Such a wonderful story about what that stranger did for you and you're right, it does make us believe that there are still some very honest people out there:-) xoxo

  12. Did you even stop to ask him if he happened to be (gulp) single?
    Have I taught you nothing??!

  13. Pay it forward...I think some of your kindness caught up with you!
    This town used to be that way but with the influx of more "urbanites," the feeling we have now is more big-cityish.

    Going back to Red Bubble to finish what I started!

    I'm laughing at Mimi's comment.
    Has our Queen taught you nothing, your Duchess-ness?
