This is taken directly from an advisory issued this morning. I am SO not up to this.


I can give you a recommendation though. To replace my lost ear warmers, I checked out Kohl's.com because they didn't have them in the store. Guess what? SALE!!! Regularly $25, these little beauties are now $10 each. I could never find them in brown so this is marv. SCORE!

Please come down and visit me! We're not warm anymore, but we're not arctic!

Come visit us! It's currently 72 and sunny. Yes, it is unseasonably warm here, and we could use some cooler weather and rain (with snow in the mountains), but we're enjoying the warmth in the meantime!

I have those earwarmers - and in brown even! Now if I could just remember to pull them out of the closet, they might do better at keeping me warm!

V -- I'd love to. Thanks! Right after I stop at Gene's. :-)

Gene -- Be careful. After today, I may be ready to take you up on it.

MG -- Really? I have them in black (of course) and adore them but could never find them in brown in the store. The ones I lost were just cheapies, but at least they WERE brown! Now I've got 2 pair of these coming.
