Remember those ketchup ads in the 70s? Anticipaaaaattttttiiiiiooooonnnnnn. They need to revive those for UPS Ground. I usually spring for faster shipping unless it's cost prohibitive and my two most highly anticipated boat items this winter have been cost prohibitive.
I am now waiting on my new cushion covers that have been shipped from Pennsylvania. At 20 pounds, it would have cost me an arm and maybe a femur to have shipped any other way. So, I wait and wait. They're due next Monday but until then, all I can do is hum an annoying 70s ad jingle to myself.
Not quite as interesting as the Rat Boat but it's what is happening in my sailing world.
