Hubby is always saying that he doesn't need hi-tech stuff. You should see his phone with its duct tape holding the battery cover in place. He hates to spend money on phones! He said he can always use mine if we are on a trip!

Mr. and I got ours at about the same time---both freebies with the phone contract---and I'm pretty sure mine goes back to about 2005. But it's functional. We haven't needed anything flashier so far.

I was just thinking of taking a coffee break for what my husband calls "girly coffee"!

You are such a good thinker and planner! Hmmm. That would be a good class you could take and even become a professional planner and a professional questioner who comes up with ideas to check out before making a purchase. Would that be a professional shopper?

When I travel any other way it's all carry on luggage. You should have seen it when I use to travel by train for a 10 day vacation for myself and my 2 kids. I packed for the 3 of us in 2 carry on suitcases. I also hate to check in luggage. The whole key to making it work, make sure you check into a hotel with self laundry facilities. We find one day and only takes a little over an hour of our time to do laundry and you got clean clothes for the rest of the vacation. Basic clothes and shoes to mix and match where it doesn't appear you are wearing the same thing all the time.

I have been doing that for over 20 years because the first time I flew to Vegas I over packed and was miserable lugging all that luggage around. I was hurting all over and back went out! I learned right then and there and never again! =)

You are so right about her knowledge, CAH. I like how we each have our areas of knowledge or help that we can offer each other. That's one of the things that makes MMC so special.

One of these days I plan to take up knitting and you will hear from me with questions! =)

I am "home alone," and just checked the Kureig supply. SIL and BIL are at work, and Hubby is out with our nephew digging the area for his Eagle Scout project. I decided on Macadamia Nut Cookie coffee. SIL also has Island Coconut coffee.

Man, what mistakes were in this post, LOL! We came to Madera to visit SIL and BIL. Hubby, not Hobby, had to drive the truck with his trailer so he could bring all his tools. We also thought we would need to make a quick trip back home for a doctor's appointment and did not want to drive back in the truck, so we opted to bring two vehicles. I also needed access to a car with everyone having to be at other places during the day. However, it seems that most of my day has been on the computer so far to get caught up on MMC!!!

I did not want to type TTYL8R but I don't know how to turn off the blasted "automatic fill-in" on this phone until I get to Madera.
