Old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.

I'm noticing that when the weather is cool in TV, activity on TOTV really increases. And it sure is cold today.

Well, it is cold for TV. In Canada, we'd call this weather tropical.

Does anyone know where I can buy an inexpensive twin bed set? I found one on Craig's List, but they're not returning my calls. Nothing at Bargains and Treasures right now.

Do you know of any other good internet sites?

Bare,
We purchased our King size Bed at 1-2-3 beds on 44l in Leesburg. It was a Serta, extremely comfortable and very inexpensive compared to other furniture and bedding stores.

It cant hurt to give them a call and ask!

Good suggestion, 1-2-3 Beds, thanks. I'll try them.

I was supposed to be shopping yesterday for a twin bedroom set (guests coming). But instead I bought a Wii.

Nonie, I will miss going to church with you today at SS.

Default Weather

Interesting about weather in TV. When it is in the low 60s, the Dog Park is usually deserted. People stay indoors a lot. Yet if they were at home, in the northern States, they'd consider 60 balmy and be running around loving it.

I can't figure out what kind of clothes to buy. One week it can be 85 degrees and the next week in the 60s, and much colder at night. I guess plenty of shawls would work!

We live in lotus land and it is truly wonderful here.

Default Wii

We bought a Wii Console this weekend ... couldn't find Wii Fit. But we have the Sport's CDs which are lots of fun. I didn't realize how uncoordinated I am. Hopefully that will improve with practice.

We can hardly wait to get the Wii Fit!

Beady said Coldwater Creek is coming to TV ... Another new store to open in the Fall! I also really like Chico's at SS.

I'm tired of shopping in teenager stores. The above stores offer clothes that actually fit women.

And your favorite store is ______________?

Bare, I wont even mention it because it is a teenager store, but fortunately they do have bigger sizes. Suits me just fine, Im a teenager in an old ladies body.

Thanks Homeball, I love to get those shopping internet sites. I like Liz Claiborne. So far I'm too repressed to do anything but look at the pictures of clothes. I've come close to ordering from Coldwater Canyon; still I hesitate. But soon, soon.

I'm hoping to do some Christmas shopping on line this year, if I can figure out sites I can trust.

I actually posted this site. Got confused, didn't realize I was logged in as Homeball, my other half.
Sorry.

However, I have been ordering from Liz for about 6 years and have been very pleased.
Usually buy sales & clearance and have gotten some really nice buys.

Service is good and they have some really good promotions and sales.

Happy shopping,
Gail

Do you find that their sizes run "true"? Or do you find them either smaller or more generous?

Coldwater Creek is my favorite store. But I hate to shop. A couple of years ago, I made a great connection with a woman who works there. I only go in maybe three times a year and I always call first to see when she will be working. I tell her what I am looking for and she has things ready for me to try on. That's how I like to shop. Fast.

I have to show you this top from Coldwater Creek in case you are looking for something to wear under jackets. I have 2 or 3 of these in different colors. The neckline is nice, not too low or too high. The fabric holds its shape. It is not 2 sizes bigger by the end of the day. This is a nice basic to have in the closet. And the touch of lace around the bottom gives it a little pizazz.

This is a morning addition to that little "Ode to Coldwater Creek" that I wrote here last night. A few more things about CC.........

I like to pretend that their sizes are like others, but sometimes I wonder if they could be just a tiny bit bigger. (Not that that's a bad thing, you know.) I also suspect that their mirrors may be designed to make us look skinnier. (Not that that's a bad thing either.) I really don't know if either of these two irresponsible statements I am making here before 7:00 AM has any remote basis in fact. I just know that I feel better about myself after I shop at Coldwater Creek.

CC is definitely not a teenybopper store. Teenybopper stores are even aggravating to my teenybopper granddaughter. She prefers NOT to dress like a, um, how should I say it, uh, hmmmm, -- streetwalker. In fact, she even rants about it sometimes. (We think ranting is a genetic predisposition.) Anyway, teenage girls who want to look stylish but keep it covered up a little have bigger problems shopping than we do. But that's a completely different topic - thread - soapbox - whatever.
