    Good morning, Beachers.

    Happy to see Sun reported in....hope the service goes well, Sun.

    And glad Grover is sleeping so he is not so stressed, Tink. Enjoy the views.

    Working hard today....we have plans to go to Iowa tomorrow to visit a casino and maybe do a movie. Supposed to rain so we figured we would do a get-a-way. Tink and hubs go to the mountains, me and my hubs go to Iowa.....something not quite right about that equation.;)

    Hope all are enjoying the holiday weekend. :)

    Morning beachmates :D

    Sun, sorry your MIL’s wishes are not being respected. I hope you and your hubs are able to enjoy the gathering and service.

    The weather at home is supposed to be similar to Mark’s - miserably hot. It is usually 5-10 degrees cooler here in the mountains. A singer/band that we really like is going to be at the vineyard today. We may go but are hesitating because it is going to be so hot.

    Have fun on your getaway, Glam! Hope you win big!

    Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!

    Thanks, Tink.....winning big is not in the cards any longer at casinos. I just hope to lose small. ;) That has been our goal for the past few years since the casinos got so greedy. Hope you do get out to enjoy the music.

    I am just putzing here at home....hubs is out running errands and getting me a couple of new plants to replace what the chipmunk dug up.:glare: I have not seen the chipmunk for over a week....hope it did not drown in the fountain...or eat some pesticide in our garage.:hmmm:We have lost two that way.

    My garden friend brought me my first garden lettuce of the season so wilted lettuce salad for dinner.:woot:

    Good afternoon beach :) :wub:

    Been outside and busy. Pool cleaner arrived today and it's running and so far doing a good job. :)

    Fixing brunch and then maybe taking the time to catch up. All depends when son arrives to help put the stairs in.

    Hello, beach people. :)

    I was so excited about CarShield when I called them and signed up that I posted about it. That was from the Sales experience. Yesterday and last night, I did my research... all too late. The only good things said were related to the sales experience. People who tried to make claims told a whole different story. CarShield gives the coverage to American Auto Shield, and all they do is try to find ways to deny coverage. Car Shield got an "F" rating from the Better Business Bureau, so to get past that, they changed the name to CarShield. There are still many complaints at the BBB. I read through my Service Contract today and saw the things that people were complaining about in action (how things aren't covered). They also use used parts in repairs. I tried to cancel the contract today, but American Auto Shield is closed on weekends, so I'll have to wait until Monday.

    We decided not to go to the vineyard. Neither of us like the heat, plus I didn’t want to leave Grover alone for too long. We ran to Mast General Store - was looking for some new shoes for work and they sometimes have great sales on shoes/clothes. Didn’t find any so I guess I’ll see what Amazon has.

    Hope your little chipmunk is OK :)

    I know you will be excited when you are able to get the pool open! :thumb:

    You should be done for the day, Dale! :phew:


    There is truth to the saying ‘if it seems too good to be true, it probably is’ :oops: I hope you are able to get your money back.

    100%VG Did something go Blip?

    I know, right? :( I really can't believe that I didn't do the research first, like I usually do. Guess I got caught up in thinking about having to save up $2,300 for the repair. :blush: The contract says that the state of Louisiana gives them the right to keep $50, but at least I didn't have ongoing monthly payments for a long time, only to find that my claim would be denied for one reason or another, like sooooo many people have. :)

    Well, I just called CarShield and spoke to customer service. While she did try a little to talk me into keeping the policy, which is understandable, when I said that I just wanted to cancel the policy after three explanations on her part, she told me that I would get a confirmation email about this and a full refund by check in the mail after about 20 days. So far, I am still impressed with CarShield itself. We'll see how long that holds true.

    Even disliking what I did today, I would not trade you. Poor Dale.

    Vacuum run and put away. Stairs in and garden tilled so I can plant stuff. Maybe tomorrow. Now that I typed it, it doesn't sound like all that much. :blink:
    Oh I forgot the big thing, I sorted through and rearranged the storage benches on the deck. Well two benches and two smaller ones---one seaters. Been awhile since I been through a couple and tossed a lot. Purpose was to clean one out to store the power supply for the vacuum and another to store the vacuum part. In the end, I still had to have room for the Lady Bug and the Polaris cleaner, and one of the big benches for misc swimming stuff. The latter two cleaners will be out most of the summer but the new one can't be left out.
    Guess we are going to put outdoor carpet on the deck. Yep got a lot done and thought of something else to do. :blink:

    Sun glad to hear you made it there and sorry for the rough night and that they aren't following MIL's wishes. :(

    Tink enjoy every second!!!

    Been spending the last hour going through websites that inform what to buy at Trader Joe's. There is one where we are spending the night tomorrow in Iowa.....:banana: I never get to go to Trader Joe's, and I am excited. The closest one to me is 60 miles away and not easy to get to. I have only been in a TJ one time.

    The websites telling what products to look at are making me hungry.....and we just gone done eating steamed shrimp, wilted lettuce salad and made the boxed Cheddar Bay biscuits from Red Lobster. The whole meal was really good.
