Somebody in the building got a parcel. As the truck pulled away, I heard Jeff yell - hey! Hold on a second here!

Bloody fool woman! She ran right over the corner where I had my pot of cyclamen.

He caught up with her on a delivery up the street - she said 'Oh, sorry - I'm just not used to that truck'.

Good grief!

I sunk 5 pots of them into the ground the other day - this one was in a clay pot, which was damaged as well as half the plant.

Not much I could do but dump it all out, use the pot for fill in the rock garden and part of it for my flower sculpture (which is on landscape).

I thought, the hell with it - took my chances and planted what was left of the cyclamen right into the ground - if she lives through getting run over by a Fed Ex truck, then she oughta' live through anything.

Sounds like you need BIG rocks on that corner. You should let FedEx know about that. Their people are supposed to know how to drive and stay off corners.

Jeff called 'em and they said he should have got the number of the truck. And a tracking number - well, the only way we'll know that is to find out who got the parcel and ask them for it.

I think that's baloney - I'm sure they could go on the computer and look for the address and time it was delivered.

Well, I'll just keep mentioning it in places on the web till some yuppie reads it while drinking his/her latte and thinks - hey! I'm gonna' e mail this gal and find out the date and address.

I'm sure the CEO's and stockholders of the company don't like people to think they don't give a damn.

Oh well, let it go now - cyclamen is hard enough to keep going though; the last thing it needs is to be run over by a truck.
