I pick up books, etc...from the county library's warehouse, and deliver totes to each of 8 librarys. Each library has totes coming back to the warehouse, that I pick up along the way. At the end of my route, I return all the pick-ups to the warehouse.
It's mainly the items that people have put on hold at their local branch, but it has to come from another branch to them. I'll also be bringing their mail, and paychecks to each branch.
I'm such a bookworm, that It'll probably sidetrack me at some of the stops!:p

What Cats Do For Us

.......From Iams Pet Food Company


Warm our laps.
Give us someone to talk to.
Help reduce high blood pressure.
Bring the winter air inside, nestled in their coats.
Create a kindred feeling with other "cat people."
Turn common household objects like bottle caps into toys.
Make us more aware of birds.
Donate their services as alarm clocks.
Display daring acrobatic feats right in front of our eyes.
Contribute to living a longer life.
Make a window sill more beautiful.
Keep mice on the run.
Make us smile.
Inspire poets and playwrights.
Teach us how to land on our feet.
Let us indulge our desires to really spoil someone.
Make our homes warmer.
Remind us that life is mysterious.
Share with us the all-is-well experience of purring.
Instruct us in the luxurious art of stretching.
Show us how to lick our wounds and go on.
Give us cool cartoon characters.
Make even an old worn couch look beautiful.
Open our hearts.

Bett - that sounds like a great job! I'd like one like that! I liked your article about what cats do for us. I wish I wasn't alergic to them.
