Ride lawn mower damaged in transit.

My ride lawn mower was damaged in transit, while arriving at the store here in Bathurst. They called and apologized for the inconvenience, and mentioned that I should make sure when paying that I should get the same sale price. These things happen, and long as they are worked out in a manner where I get a new crate that is not opened or banged up, I will still be a happy camper.

I think, everyone has a right to see their box untouched. I bought a TV at Walmart awhile back. The box was banged and ripped on one side of the box. I seen it, and mentioned it to the staff. One of the workers added "There is still foam around the TV". In my opinion, if they want me to take the box with the rip in it the size of my fist, they should give me a rebate. And still give me the warranty. No one likes to travel back, and pick up a new TV set should the first set not light up. With sensitive electronics, and marked fragile on the side, I take no chances. I asked for a new box. And, they brought it out.

This is the second time in the last few weeks, that I had problems getting my purchased equipment. I remember my parents getting a stove with a dent on the side. They did not notice until it was in place. My mother called up the seller, and relayed the information. They sent a salesperson, and agreed. They gave my mother a hundred dollars off the oven. Where the oven was placed, against a corner wall, you could not hardly see the dent.

It is good to talk, when purchasing things. We all deserve, top quality. You work hard for your money. Don't be satisfied for second best, because you are not. It is not us making millions of dollars off of these sales. They are, so we expect good packaging and a good product.

Besides that, I sold an E book and 3 books at the local bookstore here. The traffic is slow, so this is good news. Not much else to report. The sun is shining in Northern NB, and I believe the weather will be  plus 7 C with mild winds. The rest of the snow will probably go within the next week or so.  Have a good day, till next time.

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
