Trip to Post Office / Recycling Center / Dollar Tree

Stayed up late last night writing checks so had to drive into town to mail them. I mentioned back in December 2019 that my post office lost two of my payments including their own payment for my annual P.O. Box fee. Their excuse was that they had new personnel. Since then another payment has been lost in the mail so I now mail things from Post Office #2 which is now the main post office in Del Rio.  This is also where you can apply for a passport or renew your existing one in this area.

Post Office #2 in Del Rio, Texas
I had so many plastic bottles, metal cans, and junk mail that I needed to take to the Recycling Center and I took the opportunity to do so this afternoon.


I then headed to Post Office #1 so I could pick up my mail since it has been 9 days since I was last here.

This weekend I washed my favorite tennis shoes only to find that one of the traction strips (not sure of the correct terminology) was coming apart so I needed some super glue to re-attach it.  I decided to head to Dollar Tree to purchase some.

I had mentioned that Dollar Tree was now selling stuff costing more than that...now $3.00 and $5.00...so decided to photograph those items.

Fabuloso, Ajax and Palmolive...


Laundry detergent...


I know Clorox cleaners with bleach are in low supplies elsewhere but they had plenty on hand for $3.00.


Storage containers...


Pet beds are very reasonable may buy some in the winter to put in the boys' cuchas.


Electronics...


Plenty of Scott toilet paper and other no-name brands with no limits for $1.00 a four-pack.


I had no idea they also sold Viva paper towels...


I really did not need anything just bought super glue, a yellow highlighter, and some canned mushrooms (actually they come in glass containers) for my salads.

It was cloudy in the morning but the sun finally came out this afternoon.  We had a low of 73 and a high of 93 degrees.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
