I hope everyone in America has their flag flying today! It is a marvelous thing to be an American in the home of the free and land of the brave. So many people in the world would give their eye teeth to live here and so few of us really understand how good we have it. This day has always been special to me just because of that! I am blessed and I know it! Here is our flag proudly displayed on our garage. (Had to throw a picture of my day lilies in there too though since they're really looking pretty now.)
Well, the trial is over and now we just have to wait for the verdict and it's none too soon. Even my charge card company misses me. The other day, my Yahoo Flickr pro account was due and when I tried paying for it with my charge card, it just wouldn't work. I thought that odd, so I asked hubby for his and sure enough, it worked like a charm! Well, what's up with that I thought! So I called my charge card customer service line to complain (although I didn't really know if it was yahoo's fault or my card since I'm a real dummy on this goofy computer) and discovered that my card was on a fraud alert due to non use. Non use? Get out! You have to be kidding? Me, the MasterCharge mama? So, I thought back and since this goofy trial started 4-6 weeks ago, the only places I've really gone is the grocery store and the quilt shop where I wrote checks in both places. Too funny! Well, Mr. India (I'm sure he was from there or Pakistan) fixed it pronto and I'm happy to say that the next day when I put gas in my car, I had no problem! Too funny though! Fraud alert!!??
You'll never guess where I'm going tomorrow. Last week Sunday there was an ad in our local paper for Havanese puppies for $1100 and they were ready NOW! So, I called, and had to leave a message because no one answered. So, by Wednesday, after I hadn't heard from anyone, I'm thinkin' that either they sold all the puppies or their kids really didn't want them to leave and erased the message so their parents didn't hear it. So......I call again, and again I have to leave a message. By now I'm wondering what the hell is up! So, this Sunday, again in our paper is the SAME exact ad only now they are advertising the pups for $900. Hey, this is getting better and better and now I'm wondering if perhaps I should wait until next week to call because maybe they might only be $700? I can use a deal just as much as the next guy, ya know?! What I didn't tell you was that after Wednesday, I got curious and did a reverse search on the internet and discovered their last name and address. I thought of stalking, but know the neighborhood and figured they'd never have the puppies in the front yard anyway so why bother? So, yesterday, I'm intent on watching the closing arguments of the trial and low and behold what shows on my TV when the phone rings but their last name. Well let me tell you, I flipped that TV off like nothing flat! Long story short, the lady is sad to see the 6 (yes, 6) puppies go, so she ignored the calls from the week before. Problem is though that her DH got wind of the new price and had a "royal" that she never followed up on the original price. (I think my DH would do the same thing.) So.......tomorrow at 10 am CST, my hubby and I will be playing with 10 week old white with tan Havanese puppies. AND........I just might bring one home....maybe 2, who knows? I hope I'm doing the right thing. Ya know, if my DH was more entertaining, I wouldn't need a dog......but he's boring as heck, and I've had him close to 39 years already. A new man in my life might be fun!
I'm hoping that they'll be as cute as those babies. Ever since yesterday, it's all I can think about! I'll let you know!
