On This Rainy Day…..Enjoy a Rainbow!

An oldie but goodie photo taken by CosHarbour. Hudson New York, mid November.


I’m in and out all day, long list of tasks, one was to get car washed, but with the rain, might as well save a few shekels and do it anther day.

Biggest item on list: Getting Christmas bonus money ready to dole out. Not on the bonus list this year: my mailman. I never heard one word of apology from the Bedford Postmaster. That’s totally unacceptable in such a small town. A phone call or note in my box, apologizing would have gone a long way.

But yes to the young man who gathers my trash. I pay for garage door trash pickup and he does a great job. I want him to know how much we appreciate his efforts. Hairdresser, I give her a bonus even though she’s the owner. She’s been my hairdresser for over 25 years. God help the Nation when she retires.

Happy Rainy Tuesday.

  1. My dad would describe a day like today as raw.i continue that tradition with anyone under 25 giving me a look when I say it.my daughter says it weird,raw is how you eat your steak or burgers! I also call premium fuel hi test just to annoy people🙂

  2. It is warm and rain not forecast till later in day. With that info pumped up the tires and headed off on a bike ride. Hadn’t gone a 1/4 mile and it started raining. So, looped around and put the wheels away.

  3. I remember my parents tipping and gifting like mad. Cash in a card, plus a box of Ferraro Rocher. But times just seem so different now. I do have a “usual”mail man, but all the other delivery guys seem random, and I would hate for my non regular mailman to get the tip. Plus, my husband being European, he doesn’t understand it. He’d rather give to church or some other cause. 🧐

  4. Evidently, you’re supposed to gift your massage therapist, yoga instructor, dog walker and who knows who else (car mechanic)? I thought he fact they have a job at all was a gift enough.

    1. Lucky for me I don’t have a massage therapist, I don’t do yoga, and up until two months ago, my car mechanic was New Country Audi. We never had a Dawg walker either.

      It’s city living families that get hit the hardest. The tips to the super, the doorman, the list is long and no $10-20 either. Costs a fortune. If you don’t give enough to the right guys, good luck getting a cab or having that repair done right.

    1. I would have posted the YT clip of the entire Reservoir Dogs scene about tipping but it’s R rated. Here’s the money quote though to make your point:

      “ Mr. Pink: I don’t tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I’ll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it’s for the birds. As far as I’m concerned, they’re just doing their job”.
