Bozeman's Country Bookshelf is so beautiful. I was lucky to have many friends and former workshop participants attend. I also got to wear my new purple pants and had my hair fixed up by Trevor at Theory salon. Then I went to Macy's and had Gretchen do a light makeup. Then I was struck by inspiration and asked my neighbor, Alexis Pike, who teaches photography at MSU, to take a photo of me with my short hair. She obliged and brought over a light reflector and in 10 minutes turned out the best pix of me yet. Thanks, Alexis.

Holiday helping at Macy's

This season I worked in the fragrances department of Macy's in order to earn some needed money. I learned a lot. For instance, how to operate their cash register but I flubbed often with complex returns and coupons. The best part were the other "associates", the women dedicated to their shifts. The team ofwomen talked to each other in downtime and worked hard the rest. The cosmetic "specialists" are really worth talking to for advice as they are specially trained and know their products. Managers were rarely seen and hardly heard from. I had to look hard to find out any information after the initial hiring. Pay was low. Too much time is spent just waiting on one's feet for a customer to arrive. Then much engagement takes place. I'm one of those shoppers who doesn't want to be helped but that's not Macy's policy. The question arises why do people buy things? What prompts them to spend money? That's true for books one authors as well as perfumes. The only way I survived Christmas Eve was to watch two movies. Thank heavens, my son's family called.
