:sweat_smile: Awesome, @aerides and @wadeorcas! I had forgotten, too, until I went to print labels.

Columbus Day just isn’t on my radar.

Perhaps had there been radar and GPS (because apparently the stars weren’t enough) back in 1492, there’d be no Columbus Day.

Men, not asking for directions since at least 1492. :crazy_face:

There are definite advantages to having UPS open while the PO parties.

I was able to take a couple larger items to the UPS Store yesterday and they will be moving already today. In addition I ended up with half a dozen larger items in the afternoon and into this morning that will be going there when I pick up items coming in today. Double edged sword – some items going out but a lot more coming back in. It will be at least two, if not three, car loads of incoming larger items.

In a couple cases I’m shipping out with the Endicia UPS Ground Saver rates that are only a few cents less than GA. Normally they would go USPS but since I have to go to the UPS Store anyway I’ll save a little that way.

Going there yesterday (twice actually) was a love/hate experience since I was stuck in line (rare occurrence on Sunday) behind AMAZON RETURNS both times. Reminded me of why I hate selling on that disaster in waiting… But sales are pretty good at the moment so $$$$$$.

In our defense … when the world was flat, we didn’t need directions because, once you got to the edge, you simply turned around or fell off … :crazy_face:

So the lookout in the crow’s nest had “Edge ■■” in is repertoire, he just didn’t get to use it.

Silly word filter… I wasn’t saying lady of the evening.

I read this as “1942” and started to respond that in fact there was radar in 1942… and then I stopped because I need more tea.
