SALE!  As I am completely out of points and still want to claim things, I'm having a sale.  I couldn't decide between half price and buy a point, get half a point free... one is a better deal, but one gets rid of more things...  so it's BUYER'S CHOICE!

Choose "BOGHF" (buy one get half free) or "HPS" (half price sale) and shop accordingly!

Blue ear keyrings?  Was it supposed to represent something as far as the insurance?

We have optional (or maybe it's part of the normal plans... I don't know)... hearing insurance?  I'm not sure what you call it, but it's to ears what vision is to eyes and dental is to teeth.  It helps pay for hearing aids and whatnot, and the ears have the company name on the back.  Still, not sure that was the BEST idea anyone ever had...

We had the Always and Furever Animal Sanctuary (mostly an old dog rescue) event last weekend - the 0.1K Howl-o-ween doggie dash!  Everyone dressed up for the occasion...



Then, excitement of excitement, we had health insurance enrollment at work and some PR person thought a tub of blue ear keychains was a good idea...



I mean, swag is swag, but it kinda looks like they took out an entire village of Smurfs...

Thanks for the claims!  I'll be shopping more as soon as I hit the post office...  Cheesy  This might be the round I manage to claim from every shop!

I was so so so sure that Peanut was going to arrive today, and was crushed when there was no sign... then someone reminded me that there was no mail today... oh yeah, one of those post office holidays that I always have to work!  So fingers crossed for tomorrow!
