that is the online source... we haven't bought them either.

it looks like that price is for a box of 48, so that's not too bad.....but then there's shipping.

We buy family size here, fortunately DH isn't too picky about brand, just as long as there's lots of sugar in the final product

Our eldest sons really likes:

Del Reeves - "the girl wearing nothing but a smile And a towel in the picture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway"

and

Red Simpson - "Give me Forty Acres [to turn this rig around]"

Ah! I didn't notice that's for a 48 count. We've decided we probably won't drink a gallon of iced tea a day during our Maine summers. Maybe we won't need as much.

Now, I'm trying to figure out what kind of socks and shirts to buy the kids. I've been doing laundry today, and I see that girls only have a couple of long sleeve shirts each. What do your kiddos wear to keep warm?

I'm finding that I really like the 3/4 length sleeves for the boys (the cuffs don't get wet). I'm wishing I would have bought them gloves with a fabric cuff, because the snow gets in so easily with the regular gloves.

El, you're not going to need as much cold tea here as you are accustomed to.

El, on your special large teabags - If you go to the service desk of the local grocery store, they may be willing to start stocking them for you. I've done that before.

perhaps... but perhaps not. My native southern guy brews and drinks a gallon every other day, year round. Did in NC and still does here in ME.

(It would be more but I have been nagging him -- FOREVER -- to drink at least as much water as he does tea... preferably more.)
