Heat Advisory - ya think?

PEEDEE - When it's cold, you can always put on more clothes. And fur and boots, oh my! But when it is hot, you can only take off all your clothes and you're STILL hot. Give me snow!!!! I can't wait!

I hadn't planned on going out today but my grandsons still need pants for school. Kids clothes 47 cents at salvation army. I went. They don't take discover card. They don't take check's (you youngsters ask your mom or dad what that is) and you know I don't have cash. So I took my husband's Cabela's Visa. That reminds me,........Chuck took a trip to Canada to hunt. Like Nunavut or wherever. Where the Inuits live. Anyway, I got a call from Cabela's Visa regarding unusual activity on the acct. I told them where he was and what he was charging and all that and still they said he'd have to call them. I was mad that they couldn't deal with me. They gave no info or confirmation that what I was telling them was correct. I explained that I was the one that paid the bill, etc. Finally, since they kept saying they had to talk to him A.S.A.P., I asked if this meant I didn't have to pay the bill. Ha! Yeah, they'll always take your money. Anyway, as you know, "No bars in no places" means I couldn't get him on the cell. So when he did call, I told him to call them. I guess the point of this is that I finally got even with them. I used his Cabela's Visa and charged about$10,.........and they don't even know it!!!! I WIN!

Two words: Air Conditioning.

When it gets too hot, I go inside and cool off. EVERY building down here has AC so I don't even think about it. =)

And it doesnt get much better than .47 cents! Bargain!! I love bargains!!

I hear ya about hating the heat. Gonna be 105 today. It's supposed to cool off on Monday, though, we are getting a cold front. It will only be 101.

By the way, the the word your captcha word verification wants for today is: 'butsuga'.
Ok, if that is what it takes, so be it. But they should have just made it 'butt sugar'.

I can't believe your husband ran off hunting in Canada and left you with no money! I hope you cool off soon, here in Miami I am pretty much used to the heat.

I hate credit card companies. They are leeches who prey on people. That said, what a pain in the ass and I'm glad you got even!
