Peace and Quiet

Maybe that's what they mean by Mind your P's and Q's. Mind your Peaces and Quiets.

This is my Clearlake, CA. Just before the sun peeked it's (hot) little head over the hills across the lake from our cabin. I love this time of day there...around 6 - 6:30. (a.m. of course) This picture is from the deck of my father's cabin.

I spent Labor Day weekend there, recharging my batteries. It was too hot, so my batteries were more discharged than recharged. Oh well, I still got to get away from it all.

Remind me to never buy anything from Target again. I purchased all those Gilmore Girls DVD sets from them, and found in the second season, that I was blessed with two disc ones and no disc two. I took it back to Target, and since it has been awhile since I purchased the DVD's and I didn't have my receipt, they won't honor the fact that they sold me a defective set. They seem to not be able to find my purchase in their system even though I purchased it with my ATM/Credit card. Hmmm, sounds to me like they don't want to be bothered with it. They very politely told me to get in touch with the manufacturer to straighten out the problem, "since it was not Targets fault" quotes the manager. To which I replied, "Well, I guess I can't be bothered to shop here anymore, since I DID buy the (expletive) DVD here and it shouldn't matter whose fault it is... I bought the (expletive) DVD HERE. He said he was sorry to hear that. So much for customer service. I came home and looked on WB's website. I sent them an email explaining what was wrong with the DVD set. They will let me return it to them, and send me a new set. It is just going to take 4 - 6 weeks after they receive it to me me a new set. I didn't want to wait, I want to watch it! I guess before I send it I had better open up all the other sets and make sure they are intact, or else I'll be doing this again.

That is why I posted the Peace and Quiet first...I need to mind my P's and Q's!

Oh how frustrating. Finding out you had the wrong disks when you really wanted to watch it is bad enough, but then to be treated like that would really be rotten. I can't believe Target wouldn't just exchange it for you and then send the defective one back, what rotton service. Hopefully WB was just giving you an outside date for processing time and you'll actually get your replacement ones much quicker.

What a beautiful scene!

Actually mind your P's & Q's is a reference to "Mind your Pints and Quarts" a way of pub owners in the UK to say mind your own drink don't start a fight.

Isn't that just interesting?

I have seasons 1-6 of the Gilmore Girls on DVD and it is really quite addictive once you start watching them. I am currently re-watching them for the 5th or 6th time and finished season 2 last night. I just love all the quirky one liners they come out with. Hopefully you won't have to wait much longer to get the disk you need.
