Wednesday Walk down Memory Lane 1982
A phone message I shall never forget..
I arrived home about sevenish, hungry and completely exhausted. I had just made about 25 deliveries to my Avon customers. I had been delivering so many orders for the past week. Many orders from all my customers trying to help me compete with a Avon contest and win. Grand prize was 8 days in Hawaii, second prize was a weekend in New York City, theater and dinner. I felt I would definitely win the NY trip. My sales were well over $1500.00. My DH said you received a call from Trudy (my manager) and she wants you to call her as soon as you get in.
I became so excited
"Did she tell you I won the NY weekend?
She told me to have you call. I immediately dialed her number. Trudy answered.
"Hello Trudy, this is Kathleen, I am so excited you're going to tell me I won the weekend trip. She said NO"
"No, BUT I worked so hard and you are telling me I didn't win the trip to NY"
That's right" You did not win the trip to New York City
HOWEVER, YOU WON THE 8 DAYS TO HAWAII."
I was shocked, speechless and began filling up with such emotion I cried.
My DH asked, "Why are you crying?"
"I won the trip to Hawaii. I cannot believe what has happened"The trip was from December 11- December 19, 1982 " A trip I shall never forget.
