The record capped at 240 days.
It is nice to have the refreshing smell of rain outside. My area only got a sprinkle. Love it, though.

I went out for a walk from about 4:00-5:00. About half way through I swear I felt 5 or 6 very small rain drops on my face. It did smell good though

It dumped in Aliante for a good long while. I got soaked just stepping outside for a minute. So exciting!

Default Happy holidays

And a Happy New Year to all my friends on CD and elsewhere.

Doreen and I are looking forward to 2021. Forecasts are for a big year with double digit appreciation.

I would also note that all should consider refinancing in the next few months. The rates are getting down close to 2.0%. Some should even think about financing a paid off house. 2.0% money is a chance to turn liquid even if you just make the payments...

2.0% on a 15 year or a 30?
Also, Happy holidays to you both as well.

I almost made it up to Sinless City last night, as I was looking to find a ferret, during this ferret shortage, due to ferrets being used for Covid testing, and Pet Kingdom on Trop always had them when I lived there. There's none to be had in Tucson even at the Ferret Shelter or Petco, both of which have long waiting lists to get one. When I called Pet Kingdom Thursday, they claimed to have 22 of them there, so I booked a flight for Sun. night, figuring they'd still have some by Monday noon when they opened. They selling for around $300 including tax.

I called Sunday afternoon before heading to the Airport and they were down to 3 ferrets, so I deemed it too risky as those 3 could have been sold by the time they closed at 5pm. I was planning on renting a car and driving back to Tucson paying a drop charge. Some 10 years ago they banned ferrets from flying in airplanes.

So no big loss as I can use the flight at a later date.

A ferret shortage is one thing, but consider the price for ferrets pretty cheap compared to some breeds of dogs. How about charging $4,000 for a baby Pomeranian at Animal Kingdom at Arizona Mills Mall? I called up and asked about one - I thought the lady was going to say it was $1,500 or something.

She goes "try $4,500." Really. Makes the charge of $300 really look like chump change. I personally don't think any puppy should cost more than $600. In Vegas or Phoenix or Alamogordo.

I'm no big dog lover, can't stand to hear the barking of a dog, but I've heard that the price of dogs today has gone airborne.

And, to adopt from the Humane Society or a Shelter, the added restrictions today, it's like adopting a baby human being. I contacted someone at the Phoenix Ferret Shelter, and to adopt, I must submit photo's of the inside of my house, fill out an application, she wants to make sure my house is ferret proofed. And then she asked what I was feeding my ferret and I told her the brand, recommended to me by the owner of the Ferret Shelter in Tucson and she cringed at the thought of feeding a ferret that "junk". She would have to make sure I bought the ferret food she buys for her ferrets, which she buys online, and I researched that brand and I ran into thumbs down on that brand.

I've heard from others in my neighborhood what a nightmare it can be today to adopt any animal. Part of the reasoning is they want to make sure the animal is not going to be abused.

I understand that - I hate it when animals are abused. I don't eat meat so I'm a vegetarian and I'm trying to go vegan. People who abuse animals suck and their day is coming to be abused by someone a lot bigger and a lot stronger than they are.
