I sat here today, ready to get this Christmas thing done. Catalogs on hand with a slight notion of what I was going to order. I had the computer warmed up, primed to do my worst. First, I would need to get everyone's address, right?
Seems everyone has moved, changed their phone number, or did what we ourselves did - disconnected from those troublesome land lines. The landlines that had people's addresses attached to their phone numbers. The white pages are totally useless to me now. I could not find a single address that I didn't already have.
I didn't want to have to call and ask for addresses, they would know what the Grinch was up to. That would totally blow the whole thing and take all the fun out of it. So now I am at a complete standstill. I absolutely can't send to the ones I have the addresses for and ignore the ones I don't - that's just not done.
I feel the Grinch moving back in - the fun is leaving quickly. Somehow, I knew this computer thing was going to nip me in the butt sooner or later and I can't really say anything because I am not in the phone book either. If anyone is looking for MY address they are going to find bupkiss. Not that I want anything - I have more stuff than I know what to do with.
I think I am bleeped until they come up with a phone book for cell phones or something. If anyone has an idea how to get accurate addresses without my calling and asking ... Please let me know before it's too late!
It seems Grandma can't get information, but Fannie May and everyone else can. Nothing like getting old and out of the loop.
