S H O P P I N G

I must admit . . . I went on a virtual shopping spree.  On Friday, I ordered the first 2 items that were reduced
for a Today Show special.
8.0 mm White Genuine Pearl Earrings from Pearls of Joy for $29.00
SET TWO soy candles for $19.95 Sandalwood et Vanille and Andean Cherimoya from AQUIESSE CANDLES

"Kindle Fire 7", LCD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - Includes Special Offers"

Electronics; $129.00  A great price they offered on cyber Monday
As I mentioned before, my little laptop is on the way out so I had to order a new baby.  
This one came on Monday

Dell 17" Laptop Intel Core i3 4GB RAM 500GBHD w/ Anti-Virus & Tech Suppport
Retail Value: $1,312.00
QVC Price: $677.00
Event Price:
$579.96
FREE STANDARD S&H
Don't have it set up yet.  I need to get a 8 gb memory stick so I can restore if and ever it's necessary.  Once I have that done I'll finish the setup and start using it.  Can't wait.

Trouble . . .

This old laptop of mine is not feeling good and when that happens she really gives me a hard time.  So things will be quiet on this end until we get to feeling better again.  Hope to be back soon with this one fixed or a new one sitting here in front of me. Wish me luck!

Day After Black Friday. . . & Maxine

No Black Friday for me.  Instead of shopping, Ginny and I visited Mickey in Lakeland.  Mickey used to live with us at LBV but now she's in an Assisted Living facility and loving it.  We went to lunch at Cracker Barrel and had a gay old time.  It was so fun to see her.
