We had a good day.

First came the visit to the DMV where I got my permanent Handicap placard renewed.

For those who don’t know, DMV means Department of Motor Vehicles.  Generally, when someone mentions this government agency, it is to curse it.

When we stepped up to the counter, David commented to the clerk, an Indian-American man, “The place sure is empty today.”

“Yes, it is,” the clerk replied, very unusual.”

That’s because I have Karma, I told them both.

“I’m supposed to believe in Karma,” said the clerk. “How long have you believed in it?

“Forever,” I told him, and he smiled.

Yes, I believe in Karma, and have all my life, although I didn’t know its name until I was in my mid-30s.  What we send out into the universe comes back to reward or punish us.  This has been my life experience.


The next good thing that happened was we found the closest UPS store.  I was returning a broken bird feeder to Amazon.  The replacement had already arrived the day before (I swear Amazon is a using drones as it came within 24 hours).

Now, I know where to take the box with the swimsuits I am returning,” I told David, “I got 1.5 swimsuits from two boxes.

“How did you do that?” he asked.

“Two tops and one bottom,” I replied.

As luck or Karma would have it, Lands End is having a 25% off sale today, and free shipping for orders over $50. I just ordered three more swimsuit bottoms.  Something has to work.

The danger is that the UPS store is near the dog park and animal shelter. Anything with involving dogs, cats or birds is a slippery slope for me. You never know who they were in their last life.

Below…one of those anonymous photos a friend sent me. I’m always getting things like this from the universe.
