Tomorrow I have to make the first payment on a house we purchased up in Seattle. I will have more to say soon.

My hope everyday is to please everyone who is in contact with me especially if they are nice.....and sometimes I am a failure within a few minutes. First of all I have been told by my loved ones "I talk too much" , sometimes evidently without thinking the consequences all to conclusion. I try to make everything I say make sense and is true. Sometimes I like it because I always get someone to listen.  But of course if I don't say what is popular at the moment I have made a mistake.
Most of the time I please. I like people but I get a sense some are not looking to please. They are just trying to get through the day. These are usually people who are new to me. Like, yesterday we got a delivery of 36 NEW barrels. I wasn't too sure what I had coming but of course I knew they were coming.  The driver looked tired and I upset him by blurting out without thinking: "36 !!!!" I guess he thought I was upset because he humbly said "I hope you are going to take these barrels?". I just meant I thought there were less so I needed to work a little quicker, Salvador was waiting for me also and I had to get more pallets.....I found out later after trying hard to make up by not pleasing him, THAT it was his last stop and he was heading back to Napa. Napa is 1.75 hours with no traffic over no easy road. He left at 1:45 because Salvador and I had him out of here in less than 30 minutes. I need to please almost everyone! Harvest is near!!!!!!!
