Something similar happened to me once, creative. I had flown to California from the East Coast for my grandmother's memorial service, just over a weekend. As I checked in for the flight home, I wasn't feeling well (chronic illness and jet lag) and I'm sure I looked it. The agent told me I had been bumped into first class! I didn't think till later that it must have been because I didn't look well, but it certainly made the five-hour flight home much easier.

What's a PO card ?
Well not sure....someone has said that Pret A Manger do free drinks. However, that still does not account for the free granola bar.

Ah a Post Office account card.

Whoohoo!! Good luck, PF!

Love the hamster dance, I remember it from many years ago, and then it disappeared, and I couldn't find it.

It's a Roger Miller song "Whistle Stop" sped up into the Hamster Dance. The song comes from Disney's "Robin Hood".

Thanks all! Just got off the phone with Mom (1 hour, 39 minutes) and she offered to bus Dad up to help me with packing, loading and driving. Dad agreed that he would like to do it and Mom gets to sit home with the dog and cats...relaxing. Now we just have to wait for my phone interview and the DON of that facility sounded like she was VERY interested.

One for you!

PF, I have my eyes, fingers and even my legs crossed for you. And sending up a few prayers also. Now off to the outhouse.
