    lol, as far as I know the mail is not halted anywhere in the US. But I don't know if different states has different things. I don't really think so. Actually the post office has been looking for temporary workers, because some regulars are not showing for work. I hate to say it, but because of the unions, when a person becomes a regular, which can take years, they cannot be fired.

    So I have volunteer a couple of times at our processing plant. You guys, the more I learn about the USPS, the more at awe I am. Is not an easy job, not at all. Carriers like me have at least 500 to 700 stops each day, even in small town, and our processing plant in humongous. Is like putting two football fields together. Just crazy. I wish I could take show you all, but is prohibit to take pictures in a federal building. And I just worked in a small section.

    I would say that 80 to 90 % of the work the USPS does is done manually by people. If you all ever get a letter that does not belong to you, please do not be mad!

    Nice job on the mask Cecile! and Miss Iowa, great Harely-Davidson imagery
    My sewing skills mediocre. I successfully made the fitted mask from here:
    https://sweetredpoppy.com/how-to-sew...d-fabric-mask/
    (mind you I went through 4 patterns to find one that fit my face properly...)
    It gave me something to do with the nervous energy. I wear them to the grocery store, and so far so good.
    She's got a pleated one tutorial in the blog someplace too.

    Trina love the people watching story. I will remember that trick, to ask if I don't find it in the aisles. We don't have a Rite-Aid, but who knows it may work elsewhere.

    Totally recommend being extra nice to the postal workers! They do have a crazy job, and they are probably very underappreciated

    Off to see who Mel paired me up with this month.

    A little Danish humour. Found in a supermarket. It says Toilet roll. Hoarding allowed. (it's good to have your cake and eat it too!)



    Stay safe, stay healthy and art on!

    Mel, I seem to remember you claiming to be a fan of John Krasinski. Haven't you checked out this youtube channe?
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOe...9q9pGug/videos

    for non-John-fans, it's some positivity, so worth checking out

    Trina, thank you so much for the elastic! I made 5 masks...I can still make one more if I need to. I'm not great at sewing, so I'm pretty happy how these turned out. If you are eagle eye'd...you'll see that I ran over the edges where the elastic is a bajillion times! LOL!

    To everyone else, I have another tp story. So, there's this local beer pub or something that is selling beer. If you buy beer or a certain number of items, they'll give you a roll of toilet paper. Oh and some Costco people are demanding that Costco track each card and allow them to purchase only 1 pack of tp every one or two weeks or month or something like that.

    Keep safe everyone!

    Great masks, Mel. The fabric is very "Hawaiian."

    And girls, I just realized that it's only April, so it is NOT my birthday month! March was so darn long I think I got confused. So anyway...I am NOT a birthday babe this month. lol

    Miss M, that toilet paper cake that you posted above...It's starting to make it's ways to the states. I saw on the news some bakery showing off their TP cakes! Gah, if any of you told me that someday we would be having TP cakes I wouldn't believe it.

    Love me some Carlton!

    Yep, Mel. When I sent my partner a message asking for her address, I wrote, "We're partners for May." lol It's like I wiped April completely off the calendar!
