Prepare for Memorial Day

I received an email from Jeanette at J’s Cafe Nette and forwarded it to Hubby who felt he had to post it ! It’s since been linked to by Mr. Fix-it at WGN Radio.

He’s posted it here: Preparation for Memorial Day.

He’s also posted a moving video here: True Meaning of Memorial Day!

My Drawing

I am posting a portrait, not a cartoon, not in bad taste, just a portrait.

The Mohammed Image Archive has images of Mohammed from throughout history.

New Mattress Topper

Over the weekend, my feather bed got ruined (sick child). So I went online on Sunday to try to find something to replace it for my sleeping comfort.

I found this one at Overstock.com and promptly ordered it. I was expecting that it would be shipped sometime this week and that I would receive it next week or the week after especially with $2.95 shipping. The website said it would be shipped in 3-5 days and then shipping would take 5-10 days. I didn’t even know that the package had shipped!

On Tuesday, the UPS man came to my door. I asked where the box was from as he was walking away. I looked and it was from Overstock.com!

What a pleasant surprise! Considering that I had ordered on Sunday, my new mattress topper arrived next day. All for $2.95 shipping.

***FTC disclaimer: I did not receive any compensation or consideration from Overstock.com except for the pleasant surprise that my order arrived so quickly! Thank you Overstock.com. ***
