recyled computer

I took the old desk-top computer to the UPS store near my office at lunch today. I had previously exchanged eBay messages with my buyer to get the street address. I found, to my pleasure,that the cost to ship the package to my buyer was within one dollar of my own estimate. The packed box seemed a bit heavy to me, but the UPS fellow made it easy and quick.The experience also reaffirmed my belief that all old boxes should be kept, as a printer box did fine duty as a computer box.

After expenses of shipment and for a wi-fi adapter, my net return was small indeed. I perhaps could have instead donated the computer through Big Brothers Big Sisters or some such. But I liked recycling the computer into another's hands. I hope my buyer enjoys it.

The rain fell today.It's very welcome.The day was dark at 5.30 p.m., proving that the time change did happen. We are supposed to have rain through Wednesday.

Tonight we dined on turkey spaghetti and watched "Antiques Roadshow" on television.
