Pics of the grandpups...

 As some of you may know, we stayed at our daughters last week because she was working long hours.  So we were there till the dogs did not have to be boarded.

I did not take but 4 or 5 photos...I do not know why.  Copper was his usual cute self.

Sometimes annoying...but Delta just ignores him for the most part.  I don't think I saw her put him in his place one time...though  she does sometimes.


I am waiting on a package that is being delivered by FedEX and am wondering will it ever get here.  It was supposed to be delivered Wed, but never showed up.  Then yesterday all day it said delievery pending, till around dark, then it said it was scheduled for today.  And it still has not shown up and I don't expect it to.  I see the guys go flying by, and suspect they might actually have it, but I don't think they are capable of getting it here.  But I hope I am wrong.  I keep going and looking to see if it might possibly be on the porch, but so far, no luck at all.

When I got my first Juki several years ago, they were the first to attempt to deliver it.  I saw the kid go flying this way, then he went flying back by...Roger ran out to the road and waved both arms...but the kid did not see him.  I kept checking till it said it had been delivered.  I think I first called Fed Ex and then the place I bought it from.  

The kid came by...he had delivered it one street over.  Keep in mind that this was late afternoon when it happened.  He delivered it one street over.  And he went back to retrieve it and they said they never got it...that it must have been stolen.  To this day I think it was them that stole it.  I even talked to the police and told them someone had signed my name.  They were not interested.

The kid tried to talk me into not saying anything..said he would have to pay for it.  I told him I could not afford to take that kind of loss.  I don't know what ever happened...but the replacement machine was sent by UPS.  And first they sent me the wrong machine, but I had UPS return it to them...and they sent the right one.  (There were two versions of the had all the extra feet, etc)  And I could see why they sent the cheaper version cause I had haggled the price down to normal asking price for the cheaper version.

Anyway, we have one Fed Ex guy that is really good...but the guys I am seeing this week are not him.  So I am to the point where if I order something, I feel like asking what service they use.


  1. That's a bummer. I sure hope it comes soon. I know they used to ring or knock in our neighborhood, now they don't. So unless you have a computer or app you have no way to know, except continually checking.

  2. Understood. And fear in me sys it's gonna get worse before it gets better. Ya, I agree ...the people one street over got a freebie. No honest people any more.

    Lovin' the pooches!!!

  3. The dogs are so cute! Copper has the most expressive ears! What a mess you had in receiving your Juki! I hope nothing has happened to this package you are waiting for.

  4. Cute pictures of the dogs. :)
    Sure hope you get your package delivered without any of the problems from that other time!!

  5. Oh thse EARS! I have never heard of this instrument, or even this word. What is it? Can you post a photo of it?

    1. I had no idea either but the internet tells me it is some kind of sewing machine.

  6. Those are the cutest dogs. I just love them. Hope you get your package.

  7. Some of these delivery services can be frustrating.

  8. That is such a worry about the couriers. Hopefully your package will arrive safe and sound - and all of it will be right!
    The doggies are so cute :)

  9. Hello,
    I love your grand-dogs, they are both so cute. Copper is really photogenic. I do not like Fed-ex, they have delivered our packages to our neighbors house a few times. Take care, have a great day and a happy new week!

  10. fed x us the worst of all... i have one out there now, from a pharmacy.. it is so frustrating, when i called they said did you check the neighbors? I said yes i did, but it is to be delivered to my door not blocks away and i could not find it. i think i might go the route of demanding ups not fed x

  11. i got so caught up in the fed x i forgot to say, I love these pics of delta and copper. i can see the puppy devilement in copper picking on Delta to make her play... they are both so beautiful

  12. I hate waiting on packages. I think with any company it all depends on the person working for them. Each company has people who care and even more who don't. Unfortunately that seems to be the norm any more.

  13. Cute pups! FedEx has twice delivered packages to the downstairs neighbor but I found them when I went looking. Today I was supposed to get something via the postal service, but the key to the parcel locker didn't work. I'll try to get that sorted out Monday. This is the second time that has happened.

  14. delivery stuff in Auckland is completely APE - although I've had no problems because whatever I've ordered online won't fit in my street letterbox,- but apparently the 'hood tea leafs are following the courier vans and getting to the "delivered" packages before the new owners get to them... it's been really bad during this recent lockdown!

  15. I love your posts so much and love your comments on mine. I know what it's like to take care of a handicapped spouse (my first hubby not my Roger) and never have a good night's sleep. (Your last post.) Thankfully you have a loving family and adorable granddogs!💖

  16. Delta and Copper sure are cute! I would happily sit for them. Sorry to hear about the delivery. So frustrating!

  17. Lovely to see the photographs of the dogs.

    So sorry to read about the delivery ...

    All the best Jan
