Okie hill country- I was on the chat with Homedepot when I purchased the Kohler toilet seat he said none with metal screws for the lids that he’s seen anymore. If it breaks again guess I’ll try someone else.

Heather Thinking of you as you process your diary entries. Shocking…I don't think any of my diary entries would shock my adult self. Maybe cause some eye rolling & chuckling. I am sorry you were victimized.
Today a clerk with an attitude at the Social Security office "found" a form I sent her 6 weeks ago. I have been pulling my hair out because it needed to be taken care of by Dec 31. I had sent 2 forms without response. When she came back with the "found" form, I sat there with my mouth open, because she had just finished telling me that since I hadn't sent them the form in a timely fashion, I was going to have to live with the (costly) consequences. I started making a fuss, so she saunters over for a conversation with her supervisor, who eventually pulled my form out of one of numerous tall filing cabinets full of unprocessed mail! I asked her how this could be & she said they were "too busy taking care of customers to process the mail". To make it worse, I had mailed the form to her in a postage-paid addressed official government envelope she had given me at a previous visit, & never mentioned that it they don't actually process the mail & it would be better to come back in person. You can't make this stuff up. She was not too happy when I insisted that she give me a copy of the form with the dated stamp showing that they did get my form on time. Geez.Karen in Virginia

Margaret Certified Mail is best, I think, if you have a pretty good idea of when the item will be delivered. A Certificate of Mailing would be another alternative. The main problem with Certified Mail is that if the item is delivered on a day when there is no one to sign for it (a Saturday for example), the item is returned to the post office to be picked up by the recipient. It can take up to 21 days for your Certified Letter to be picked up from the Post Office. A Certificate of Mailing doesn't prove that your item arrived at the SS office, but it does prove when you mailed it. I mail from the same post office that serves the SS office, another little trick that increases the likelihood of a timely delivery.Lisa Sorry about those formless grey things. Ugh.
I didn't really hold onto my temper at the SS office, but I didn't blow it so badly that I had to cry or leave. I started off pleasantly enough, but devolved into fuming & scowling, and at one point I raised my voice slightly. I'm sure my tone of voice and scowl conveyed my skepticism and displeasure. First she blamed me, then the Post Office, then said I sent it too late, then was silent & avoided eye contact when her supervisor produced my form from December 12th. The file cabinet was groaning with brown envelopes. Karen in Virginia

I now know a small, one-bedroom cottage will be just perfect as long as I have a small garage or outbuilding as a craft space. I also know that I want a small plot of land so I can garden. I really do not want to spend a lot of time, energy, or money cleaning and maintaining a larger home. I would much rather use those funds to be able to pick up and go whenever I want. I want experiences not things.
