Solutions: Lost in the little black bag?

One Hit Wonder Song: She Can’t  Find Her Keys

via Daily Prompt: Pursue

 

 The Lyrics:

When I take my baby home at night
I can’t wait to kiss and hold her tight
But by then the time begins to drag
When she starts searching through her bag

She says just a moment please
I can’t find my keys
And here’s what happens while he’s waiting for her squeeze

She pulls out
Lipstick, powder, bubble gum and bobby pins
But she can’t find her keys

(her keys)

Curlers, tweezers, cold creme and candy bars
But she can’t find her keys

(her keys)

Nail file, school books, an autograph of Fabian
She can find with ease
But I’m standing here waiting for a goodnight kiss
Cause she can’t find her keys

Sha da sha da sha da! She can’t find her keys…

Give me your shopping list? Let me do you shopping

Kerry On Personal Shopper

Patsy is a very busy woman with no time to shop.

She said it came down to two choices: She could do the mad dash down the aisles of Whole Foods/Safeway and rush home in time to throw the groceries into their respective areas – quickly change for her Pilates class- jump back in the car and scour the area for a parking place and run into class – breathless…or

  She could hire me to do her weekly grocery shopping. We have it down to a science.

For instance, I know she likes pink roses, Best Foods Mayo and not faux mayonnaise.  She prefers Clover Organic Milk; Fage Greek O% fat yogurt; pink peaches – in season; frozen, organic, blueberries; Shredded Wheat; plain hummus; Tangerine juice – not Orange juice, California Cabernets, Quinoa in bulk, Trader Joe’s Belgium Chocolate Pudding (her favorite.)

Very Entertaining: When Patsy is planning to have people over – we talk.

She plans the menu – we discuss various stores, decor, and wine, Bev Mo versus Costco. I do all the shopping, deliver, and put groceries away, set the table and prep various food items.

Who does your grocery shopping? 

Is it a mad dash into the corner grocer or Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods and Target?

I’ll be happy to take over your Grocery List… so you can Kerry on!

Personal Shopper Expertise: My grandfather opened a family-owned department store in California in 1895. For a century, our store served the local communities. My father taught me a great deal about customer service, merchandising and high standards.

Beginner’s luck? Not really…

Kerry On

Your Personal Assistant

Clutter: The GOOD NEWS – The BAD NEWS

Sorry, there is no such thing as a Magic Wand to remove clutter…

The Good News:

I can help you toss, shred, organize, alphabetize, de-clutter and organize receipts, files and mild chaos.

Allow me – to assist you in de-cluttering, organizing, purging, tossing, and shredding.

Ms T. hired me to work with her elderly parents. They had rooms and rooms filled with items that needed to be repaired, donated, thrown away, put in the proper place, Mission Accomplished.

An affable couple, June and Ward, agreed they no longer needed those 12 old jig- saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’ sets of playing cards, and stacks of coloring books and boxes of broken crayons for the grandkids – who were now in college.

It’s in the Bag: We filled up bags of junk to toss or recycle …and bags of toys in good shape to be donated. Next, we sorted though dozens of old movies, cassettes, and duplicate CD’s. We agreed: there are only so many Frank Sinatra ”I Did it My Way” CD’s one can listen to.

Too Much Stuff Syndrome? Like many of us – the couple had multiple bookshelves crammed with books and old magazines – in no time the books were sorted and organized -dog-eared magazines were recycled and giving the living room a great face-lift.

Through the years: I have worked with couples, singles, sisters, doctors, lawyers and Indian chefs…

(Note: Boxes of very old Time Magazines and National Geograhics were put on Craigslist for free – and disappeared.)

June has booked me to visit – twice a week – for the next two months.

It’s a date!

We are working magic: clutter is disappearing!

Email me – we’ll talk.

***Holding down two jobs with two busy kids kept me from organizing files and throwing out old documents, receipts, and statements. Kerry On came over one afternoon and quickly sorted and shredded. I am now renewed and  energized by the lack of clutter.     Thank you!  Donna P.

Tip of the Day: Drop off old Prescriptions: April 29

medications-342462__180-3

National Prescription Take-Back Day is April 29, 2017

Citizens can drop off their unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter drugs & vitamins at various sites/drug stores.

In Marin County:  at the Sausalito Fire Station on Caledonia Street.

And, In San Francisco, see Here

This is an important step in the fight against the prescription drug epidemic.

banner-1571998__180When citizens properly discard their unwanted or expired pharmaceuticals, it keeps them out of the hands of anyone who may take them for recreational use.

Let’s be safe and keep these dangerous, addictive drugs out of our kid’s hands.
You can make a difference…

Thank you! Your actions can save the life of one young person or spare one family from the heartache of a prescription drug overdose.

Beware Scam Artists- it started with a text


Out of the blue: Rifkinscott46@gmail.com sent a text inquiring about my business. I Googled the name and area 
code and sent a quick response.

The following day, She sent me this description of why she needs  a Personal Assistant:

There are Neon, Red Flags waving in every paragraph clearly indicating Scam and a hoax:

#1. Poorly written, lousy English
– Clueless as to where I reside
– Clumsy approach
– Refers to “USA”
– Wants to pay $15.00 an hour
– Wants to use my address to receive her packages
– Strange Requests: “Stay at your house to get my mails”

Please do things for me:

* Mail services (Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS)
* Shop for Many  Gifts
* Do my Bill payment (pay my bills on my behalf)
* Sit for delivery (at your home) or pick items up at nearby post office at your convenience.

Let me know if you will be able to offer me any or all of these services.

Where are you located?
I will love to meet up with you to talk about this job but I am currently away on business.   

I will prepay you in advance to do all my various shopping.
I will also have my mails and packages forwarded to your address.

If you will be unable to stay at your house to get my mails, I can have it shipped to a post office near you and then you can pick it up at your convenience.

When you get my mails/packages, you are required to mail them to where I want them mailed to.
You don’t have to use money out of your pocket.

All you have to do is have the package(s) shipped to wherever I want and do my shopping.
You are allowed to open the packages to reveal its content.
All expenses and taxes will be covered by me. You will work between 15 to 20hrs a month. The pay is $300 weekly. That is not bad offer, no ?

I need your service because I am constantly out of town.

I will be returning to USA in the month of May so this process will be going on till then.
If you don’t mind, I will meet up with you when I return and then we can talk about the possibility of making this long term.

Well, let me know if you are able to handle the position. I hope  hear from you soon.

Rifkinscott

Dear Reader: Everyone should be hyper vigilant when it comes to queries that come from out of nowhere.

No, thank you.
