Do you bring your own food to the movies?

When we got there, they had wonderful canopy beds all around the store for $3,000, $4,000, and $5,000. We walked the loop all around the store, and back to the front desk. We asked about the radio special and he pointed to a stack of lumber by the front door. It was un-stained, un-assembled, full-wave, but included a heater. We bought it and we are still sleeping on it now.

We have lived in five other homes with the same bed. We had replaced the bag once, we have replaced the heaters twice. The current bag has a tire patch on it, from when her cats got in a fight and were able to puncture it with their claws.

Our home is powered by solar power, and we heat with a woodstove, that heated waterbed is great when the house is cold. In January when the snow is falling outside, and you know it was -20F last night, but your not brave enough yet to go out and start-up a fire in the woodstove.

That was just about the best investment I have ever made.

Caramel Clusters from the bulk candy section of the Thriftway store. Taken with a 1 liter bottle of Diet Dr Pepper it is simply orgasmic.

^^^ yes ^^^ spent 40+ yrs on a waterbed, but at the moment on a latex ($300) euro variety at a liquidation store. Will be back on the waterbed it this one wears out. Built the bed (from my decorative forest wood) so it can take any variety of materess, including waterbed..

I splurged today for a $1.29 lettuce wrapped jr Cheese and a free frosty.
