fed-ex versus USPS

we woke up this morning to - guess what - MORE snow! we got a fresh blanket and it's still snowing! - so we still aint goin' anywhere - luckily we have super nice neighbors with 4wd as I've only got abotu a day'ish left of chicken feed -

So I got a call yesterday from Fed-Ex they said they couldn't get into my canyon and would have to leave my packages at the local market in town - I love it Fed Ex can't make it down my gravel, un plowed, snowed in road but my trusty mail lady is besting them!! she's tough that lady she's got a 4 wheel drive truck and chains and isn't letting anything stop her - she may not get here at her usual time but she's been getting us our net-flix every day which let me tell you IS a total life line when you are snowed in and you have no TV - so when the chips are down the post office has got fed-ex beat hands down... Big Thanks to my hardworking mail lady!!!

Snowed in with no TV and that burning hunk of love of yours and you're thankful for NetFlix? Somethin' ain't right. I think it was Napa circa 1999 and one glorious weekend where Brian put up a number that has been etched on a mountain reserved only for epic accomplishments. Right next to Einstiens E=MC squared you will find the notation, "Freeman Brian Marcy--21 glorious times in a 36 hour span. No man has ever been or will be able to better that, other than Freeman himself." Something tells me that if you rekindled just some of that kind of magic, FedEx could land a jumbo jet in your thawed out front yard. I'm just sayin'.
