Me And The Post Office Will Never Be Friends!

Hey Gang!


So, me and the Post Office will never be friends!  The PO will always do
something crazy to make we want to kill them!


The other day I saw a cute pair of Barbie pants on Facebook and wanted to purchase
them. 


The pants!
The seller had the pants listed for $1 which I thought  was a good price.
The Devil (or the PO, take your pick) is always in the details! So I asked the seller
how much is shipping.  She didn't have anything else I want.  I was just getting
the pants. She said the shipping would be $2.00 and that that was the basic rate
she found for small items.  I asked her could she just put it in a stamped envelope
but she insisted on doing it the "right way" with tracking. She said if she took it to
the PO and I was less, she would refund me the difference. She was heading to the
PO today. I said OK, and sent her the $3.00.  She messages me later that day and
tells me shipping was $3.50 for the pants (3oz) and sends me a copy of the receipt
from the PO and informs me I owe her $1.50.



Now I have shipped two Barbie dolls to Florida for 3.50 and she is mailing it from
Broomall PA to Phila PA, about 40 minutes away!  She has the receipt!  I mention
to her that I thought it was high but I see that is what they charge her so I paid it!
I figured I would wait to see what was on the package when it came.  Low and
behold it says $3.50 for 3oz!
 Six inches wide and four inches high.


So me being me, I check on line and they say it
should have cost $1.42.  I not sure if that was with tracking. I call their 800
number, which is it's own story, and they said
because she used a bubble envelope (the size of a personal letter envelope) that
is was rigid and couldn't be processed as regular mail. Like I said I have mailed
items in padded envelops before (whole outfits and shoes) but I have always
printed out the labels at home and attached them on the package for less than
$3.50.




I used to feel badly when I printed out a label for something that was 13.8 oz for just
13 oz but now I am not going to feel badly anymore!  I just going to give it to a carrier
who has no way to weigh it and call it done! No more Mrs. Nice Guy!


Anyway, here is my Linnit in the pants!
 Linnit: They are cute and nice and screechy!
 Mrs. Leo: Yeah, well they should be for that price!  I could have got you a boyfriend
for that price!
Linnit: I don't really need these pants!




OK, That Is My Rant! Thanks For Looking!

More Horses!

Hey Gang!

This is one of the diorama I was working on a while back. I took pictures to see how
it photographed.  I see some changes I can make and some things I want to do better. 
I decided to post the photos along with a story anyway.  I will  work on the paddock
in the mean while.  Here is the post.

Ahiga and his wife have just moved to the Iroquois and Native American settlement.
Ahiga has always worked with livestock that is what he has come here to do. 



So it's a warm day in Johnston and the horse were taken out to the paddock.

 Ahiga brought out food to feed the horse with.

Ahiga: This is going to be a great day!  I'm glad to have a break from the snow.

This will be a good day for the foal to come out and meet the other horses.

 Water was add to the trough for them to drink.

Hello Buttercup!

You need a little exercise even though you've given birth.

Being a mommy has been good for you!  You are not as jumpy.


She really wanted to get to the hay.


Hello little one!

Taffy came over for a pat.

Taffy doesn't come to many people but she comes to Ahiga .

Both horses went over to get a drink.



Midnight was also out for the day of sun.

Hey big fellow!
Midnight was really happy to be out.

Bison: Greetings

Ahiga: Greetings! So you made you way here!
How long have you been here?

Does the Chief know that you are here?

Bison: I just got here. I came directly to the paddock. Smiling, Bison
said and  no! I would appreciate if you don't tell him I was here.

Ahiga: He is the Chief, so I can't promise that. He said with a slight twitch to his lips.

Bison: I have a favor to ask of you!

All the horse gathered around the water.
Bison: This is Thundercloud!  He needs to be boarded while I travel.

Ahiga: He is a nice looking horse! A Roan!


Bison: I just picked him up.  I purchased him a few months back but I have to
take a trip to the west coast.

Bison: I'll pay his board and I need him cared for until I come back!
I have his papers and records with me for you.

Ahiga: I guess you have shows..... And when you come back?

Bison: I will deal with things when I come back!

Ahiga: You put me on in a spot!  Ok, the horse can stay!

Bison: Hear that fellow, you got a home with friends.

You know there will always be a place for you here!
Bison: Yeah, I know!

Ahiga: We are not the only new members here.  You should meet them.
Bison: Yeah OK.





OK, Thanks For Looking!

Mary Jane!

Hey Gang,

I hope to post pictures of all of my dolls.  It will take time because I do have a lot
of them.  I am work on categories. I need to complete them too!
I  have posted one of my Mary Jane Dolls. 


My Siobhan!
She is the sister of Fiona. 
I haven't listed the sisters and their family in my characters. I guess that is something
I will have to do.

Siobhan is actually the head of Mary Jane Watson-Kirsten Dunst from Spider-Man
2001 by Toy Biz.  She has had several bodies but this fashionista body I believe will
be her last!  Her original body was a awkward action figure body.
The arms were waaay too long and the hands and feet were too big!  I did
keep her dress, shoes scarf and bag!  My Lena can where the shoes.




Next up!

My Mary Jane is a Barbie version!
I found this picture of the doll in the box online!


The one I found was nude and the body was in really bad shape.  I had found the dress
shoes, mask and gloves on another doll in the thrift store. So I had to buy them both.
I'm not going to use them for her but will use then later.

So here she is redressed!
 Her name is Coleen and she is a very interesting woman!
 Coleen: Hello everyone!
 I am wearing the new dress Ms. Leo found for a dollar!
 Dominique did get this one!  I don't even think she knows it was here! 
 So let's keep this between us....OK!
See you all later!
So that completes my Mary Jane dolls.




OK, Thanks For Looking!
