"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

USPS

One week.
I mailed 5 packages out last Saturday from Alamogordo, New Mexico.
This morning I went online to find out the status of the packages.

~The one for Coweta, OK(which according to mapquest I could drive in 11 hours and 20 minutes- is in LA California-12 hours 24 minutes drive the OTHER direction) LA in one week.
~ The one for Freeport, TX(drive time 12 hours 46 minutes) STILL in Albuquerque, NM one week later.
~ The one for Florida...STILL in Albuquerque, NM.
~ The one for near Dallas, TX...STILL in Albuquerque, NM.

Only one of the five is almost delivered. It is in Federal Way, Washington, just a few miles down the road from Puyallup...almost there.

It is no wonder...why. my. sentences. seem. choppy.

I pray that ALL are nearly delivered and that the Post Office is just slow at documenting their parcels.

The one in Freeport has been delivered and those being so blest by its delivery are crying with tears of happiness and joy. To be thought about in such a sweet way was a blessing that we can't say thank you enough for. We love you and those in Freeport can only say ,"we love you and yours."

Glad to know our "mailing" problem is not just Coweta. I had felt it was since I had so much trouble getting things to you. I still have to wonder where that one old book is???? Hope someone is at least enjoying it. Coweta's must still be in LA!!!!!! Another sign of the state of our country and it's work forces.
