    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Not quite--ask your Saturday air driver(s) how his day was when you see him on Monday.

    We have 2 drivers scheduled and 1 on standby just in case for tomorrow.

    Yup, they were looking for 9 additional drivers for Saturday at my old Package center. There were 5 signed up.
    I was going to offer to work, but I didn't see a sup, and I'm off today.

    Thanks also.
    I dont have my Mom but I know she will be having a good one.
    I sent my adopted Mom from my route flowers, and ftd totally screwed them up. So ftw ftd I wont use them again.
    And I reminded everyone who had a Mom on my route today to take care of their Mom if they still had one, and it brings a smile to faces you wouldnt expect to mention MOM

    I want to thank my mother for giving birth so I can work for the Worlds Largest Shipping company-and to carry on Jim Casey's legacy. (How's that for B.S.)

    Pretty good. Luckily, I just returned from fishing, and still had my rubber waders on.

    When me prayers were poorly said,
    Who tucked me in me bed,
    And spanked me till me ass was red?
    Me Mudder.

    Who took me from me cozy cot,
    And put me on me ice cold pot,
    And made me pee if me could not?
    Me Mudder.

    And when the morning light would come,
    And in me crib me dribble some,
    Who wipe me tiny widdle bum?
    Me Mudder.

    Thanks all, guess we gotta be good for something!

    We usually have 15 or so Saturday Air Drivers. This year on Valentine's day, the powers that be brought in like 45 people to drive - it was a real fuster cluck. I'm told tomorrow will be worse. Eh, it's hours....

    (And notice I did not go further with the "mothers" reference, ie "mother-stugger")

    Our local Albertson's grocery store is dipping huge strawberries in chocolate and they make a grouping of six of them look like a bouquet of roses. I definitely want some of those this weekend ....yummy! :wink2:

    I will also get some for my 90 yr. old neighbor lady...she's a mom too.

    I lost my Mom in October of last year, I miss her everyday and wish I could have her back in good health, mind and body. I know in my heart that she is happy with God and my Dad.
    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my
    first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately
    wanted to paint another one.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    [FONT=&quot]When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
    stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind
    to animals.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
    favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little
    things can be the special things in life.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
    prayer, and I knew that there is a God I could always
    talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a
    meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I
    learned that we all have to help take care of each

    When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of
    your time and money to help people who had nothing,
    and I learned that those who have something should
    give to those who don't.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
    of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have
    to take care of what we are given.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
    handled your responsibilities, even when you didn’t
    feel good, and I learned that I would have to be
    responsible when I grow up.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come
    from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things
    hurt, but it's all right to cry.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
    cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of
    life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
    productive person when I grow up.

    When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
    wanted to say,’ Thanks for all the things I saw when
    you thought I wasn't looking.'
