Yes, Continued

Yes, my Visa was declined today.

Yes, there was a message on the phone from Visa suspecting fraudulent use.

Yes, the fraud was a false alarm.

Yes, STM made a super big purchase for business, in an attempt to get our air miles up there so we can get the hell out of here.

Yes, we looked on line recently for places to go/stay for our 20th anniversary in a few months, and anything that said, "Family friendly" got the big N-O.

Yes, STM actually said, "I don't want to spend my vacation with a bunch of typicals."

Yes, that made me laugh so hard I spit out my (second) beer.

Yes, while on the land line with Visa I called STM on my cell phone to verify his charge.

Yes, while I had one phone on each ear, the ice cream truck came by and Rojo needed money right that second.

Yes, I walked out to the front yard with both phones on my ears, and watched the ice cream truck transaction.

Yes, while in my front yard a friend and neighbor drove by and waved, and I almost waved back before I remembered I was holding up not one, but two telephones.

I hope you spare no expense on that vacation.

Again, you've managed to make my shoulders shake in laughter. And I needed the laugh.

I like this format of Yes, continued. I might have to do it myself -- and give you credit, of course!

Sounds like a typical day. Hope you put those miles to really good use. LOL Tom

Yes, twenty years of marriage entitles you two to a vacation sans children! Hubby and I just celebrated years and will be spending a night without children some time in the near future.

I, too, like this "Yes" format and might borrow it, as well!
