A day which is normal for us here, a combination of snow, sunshine and a beautiful sky:

Will ask Bavaria to get the status of meteorological refugee. We don't see much the sky blue these days Image

You guys ever heard of a left-handed compliment? My grandfather was an expert. When he was dating my grandma, she complained he never complimented her. So he said, "You don't sweat much for a fat girl."

I rather felt like this yesterday. A customer left me positive feedback (I guess I'm glad that they at least left it as positive feedback), "Seller is *very* communicative. Maybe a little too much so. Fast shipping though." I rather felt like I was being made out like Glen Close in that Fatal Attraction movie. :( :anxious:

Most of my customers like it, and I don't really plan to change my policy there. I know the packages have tracking (unless they are going to a military base). However, I think it does reduce the chances of misunderstandings, and I don't write every day.

Of course, then I remembered that many people buy online using cell phones. With me, I have to pay for text messages. I know that I got frustrated when I had the ebay app for a while because it constantly sent me messages. I appreciated that the person I bought from sent me updates, but I was upset that using the app had them automatically sent as text messages. I would have preferred to go to ebay and check my messages there. So, I updated my store policy.

A former colleague of mine was more the straight in the face compliment guy. His wife was always complaining he never brought her flowers. So one Friday after he got his pay check he went to the guy selling flowers from a stand on the corner of the street. He bought the lot and had it delivered, buckets and all. He told me she never asked for flowers again, so he must have done something right :D

Reminds me of the guy who never could say the right thing to his wife. Always stuck his foot in his mouth. Finally, his best friend took him aside, told him to buy a bouquet of roses and deliver them while saying something poetically romantic like: "My darling, when I stand here drinking in the delights of your beauty and basking in the warmth of your myriad charms, time stands still." Poor guy couldn't remember all of that, so when he got home with the flowers, he said: "You know, honey, you've got a face that would stop a clock."

I can just hear Dutchy thinking:

Hmmm, vault up onto the short building, jump N with a left curve to the roof, slide down and grab the edge, shimmy to the right as far as you can....

If he thinks so he will end up above the garden of my neighbours where the biggest threat he can think of, two naughty children, will happily await their next victim. I think they are going to chase him in the garden until he is exhausted and decides to leave as soon as possible. Not to mention that the roofs here are icy and therefore he will walk on it like on an ice surface. Therefore he might eventually drop down like Lara and needs a large medipack :lol: Or even worse break thru the ceiling of the short building which is the neighbours garage. Very often roofs here are unstable because of the snow weight.

On Valentine's Day, I saw a squirrel couple braving the cold weather, it was very fitting for Valentine's Day. :)

They're trying to imitate the gargoyles from one of the custom levels.
