Monday, July 13

Well, hope your new week's going be 105 here today...whew !

Just got thru writing a letter to eBay auction's management team. They've just doubled what it costs us to sell something...and my "ire" (what's that short for ? "irish" ?) got to's what I told them: (guess when your temp is 105, anything goes)....

Well, I am only one...I know that...and a very insignificant one, at that.But, when you say:"new pricing structure"and then I find that it's almost DOUBLE what it used to be, in this recession...declining problems world wide...I am thinking EBay is trying to get rich at the expense of us "slobs" out here who are using your auction. Am I wrong ?Were I you, I would be ashamed. Yes, you enjoy the luxury of being "the only one" right now...but, eventually, you will have priced yourself out of the market...mark my words. Too had a good thing going...friends, you fellows won't last long charging nearly 10% to sell something...then, making a good fortune on your PayPal charges to boot...shame, shame.I feel sorry for you, along with AIG, and the myriads of other companies who somehow "didn't quite think it out"...just grabbed all you could get...& forgot the little man who's made you so "great". Enjoy.Leslie Smith

Well, Betty and I have been really busy and blessed these last 3 days...our daughter Sharon has had her 3 granddaughters staying with her...and we've been going here & there together. These kids are between 4 and 8 yrs old...and FULL of life. But I am beginning to see why God gives "young'uns" to the young...yes sir. Wow, we've have fun, though...busy days...this week's gone by like greased lightening ! Hope you've had as much joy as we have this week ! We also visited with our great grandsons, too...we're fortunate and rich in family... Blessings to you

This is Sunday, and we just got in from church (that's what we do on the Lord's Day, every week). Good message...good Sunday School class !

And, this is our first blog page...we'll be sharing some thoughts along the way...enjoying reading the blogs of many in our family....and, generally dropping by from time to time to make some "expression of life" (that'll help us, and you, to know...that though we're getting pretty close to the old 80 mark...WOW...that we're "still a kickin'".

Hope your day has gone well so far. Looks like rain here in Arlington...we'll see ! Just put out some bermuda grass the rain will help them be born-again.
