Good PR

When purchasing certain things for the boat, Hubby goes Mail Order with a nationwide company, though we discovered a fortnight ago that their distribution centre is only about 30 miles down the road.

Since purchasing Fred, we have ordered a few other things and delivery has always been prompt and efficient.
In fact, when placing his last order, Hubby was asked how Fred was getting on.
Brother Barry has now flown the nest and is in pastures new by all accounts.
We had sent the promised photo of Fred in situ surveying the Marina with a bar of chocolate at his feet, or should I say talons.

We had our first Christmas Card today, which I would class as only our second ‘personal’ mail since our arrival here in July.
Although addressed to Hubby on the envelope, it included Fred and his new family on the greeting within, and was signed (with little witticisms) by all members of staff at the depot.
Apparently our emails make them smile, and they have advised us that Fred likes a little tipple of port on Christmas Eve.

Their card has certainly made our day.
It feels good to know that we are more than account details on a database and for us, we feel our orders are handled on a personal basis.

I don’t think there is anything we need at the moment, but somehow I feel we will be having a little field trip in the next week or so with some Christmas goodies.

Good PR works both ways.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
