And did you make those cookies in your Easy Bake Oven?

Resisting the urge to shop online for a meat hook...besides his annoying habit of humping everyone he meets, said guest also is very vocal. I ignore him when he is, when he is quiet, he gets rewarded, but it is after 11 p.m. and I'm very tempted to hang him on a meat hook (if I had one). Google search string "meat hook immediate delivery SE Ontario."

I am trying to relax my brain after long discussions earlier with Amazon and my credit card company. Long discussions with heavily accented women and long times on hold.
Now I have to wait until 10:00 this morning for the right cc dept to open so I can try to find out how my account got closed on Monday. The account I have all my automated payments (and Amazon orders) drawn from. Sheesh.

And it's still stinkin'!
It's taken me this long to get through to a manager without being cut off, but it seems she's on top of things.
I was hoping it would be a simple case of fraud and them shutting the card down, but all I know is that was not it.

I hope they get it figured out to your satisfaction soon.

Thanks Linda.
She called me back and said it should be up and running again by 4:00, but still had no clue why it was cancelled. That's not very reassuring when so much is done electronically these days. It makes me wonder if their security was breached. Oh well.

So Fred, is your credit card account all better now?

I'm about to make Margaritas. Let the weekend begin.

Must have gone over your limit buying the grill and bacon fixin's.

Is your CC company US-based? Ours is and we haven't had any problems since we opened it in 1987. Quite a track records these days.
