What kind of world do we live in?

What is the world coming to? I have been searching in vain for the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2007 magazine. You might even have it. I f you don't know what I'm talking about, talke a lookie-lou: Granted, you're probably saying, "It's her own fault for not buying it when it was in stores LAST YEAR." I know. I blame myself. The search has been quite fun however. I've looked in all of the shops in my area of the state, bookstores too. All have had the same answer. Sorry, we're sold out.

I sat thinking about it the other evening at home. I remembered taking a road trip with mom to central Nebraska just to visit yarn stores (we have priorities). I purchased scads of back issues at The Plum Nelly in Hastings. I took a chance and contacted them to see if they might have one. Turns out they did.

Here's the part that floored me. I told them I wanted to buy it but couldn't come to their store until the weekend. They said they could mail it to me. (This is the part you'll want to sit for.) I said that would be great, let me know the total and I could pay with my credit card or a check. I was prepared to mail the check yesterday when hubby brought the mail in. Too late. Hubby brought the mail in and I had a package. It was the magazine with a recipt. They mailed it to me and asked me to send them a check. Can you believe it!?!?!?

They totally made my year. I love it! They probably leave their car doors unlocked and just flip the sign to closed without locking up. Isn't it refreshing to stumble upon trustworthy people? I am glad these type of people still exist. I sent them a thank you and payment (of course).

Now I just need to decide which project to start on first...
