    I've gotten 2 new bank cards this year, due to the compromise situation, but there has been no activity on MY card. I am nosing around my on line site every couple of days, so I stay on top of what's happening with that pretty well. My credit union seems pretty diligent. So far, I've never been unhappy with them.

    I told my kids all I wanted for Mother's Day is for them to help me in the yard. Mother Nature has always liked messing with my plans so she scheduled rain all weekend.
    A nearby town holds a big arts and crafts festival on the second weekend of May, Oct, and Nov. I feel bad for all of the vendors and the people who planned to go this weekend. It is always a good way to get into the gardening season. I usually always get some pretty doodad to decorate my porch with. I didn't plan to go this year but I still enjoy driving by and watching all the festivities. And usually they have excellent weather. I think the weatherman said tomorrow might be salvageable. For their sake I hope it is.
    Ya'll have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

    I think there comes a time when you no longer want "stuff" for holidays. I prefer something getting done that I don't have to do myself. The last thing I want is something else to dust or move around!

    I'd rather have a memory than a tangible!

    Yes, Happy Mother's Day to all you Mothers. Whether your child is the human kind or a furball, have a special day tomorrow!

    I am mother to both! Realistically, there are times when I actually prefer the furballs! They can be a little more loyal.

    Oh my, I had great success today. I found a great dress with matching jacket for my mom. It's very fashionable and I was a little worried she would like it, since she's on the traditional side. (She's 73 years young.) Since I thought she might want to wear the dress tomorrow to church, I went ahead and gave her the dress. She loved it! It fit perfectly too. I have a talent of fitting people. Of all the odd talents to have. lol OH, the dress was on sale too! Perfect shopping day.

    Too bad you don't live closer, Debb. I am having a devil of a time trying to find something for a wedding I am attending in September. Since I had been plus-sized for the last 25 years or so, I have no idea what style looks best on me, having shed 110+ lbs. Not to get too graphic, but there is loose skin and my arms are super flabby. I don't think any amount of toning is going to help and at my age I don't believe the skin is all that elastic and will 'go back.' My diet coach says I have to give it 2 or 3 years to shrink back, but I don't think it will happen. Anyhow, it's hard to find a dressy gown ( it's going to be a very fancy reception) with sleeves. I have tried on cocktail dresses but I am on the short side, super bosomy and don't have the best legs. I am better off in either a dressy pants outfit or a gown. The mother of the bride, my cousin, said several women are wearing gowns, if that would help me out, so I am on a search now. I realize I have a few months to go before Sept, but I may have a knee replacement this summer, and if I do, I can't be worrying about dress shopping.

    I'm glad your mother enjoyed your gift to her. My mom has been gone a long time now, having died very young, but I also seem to have a knack for buying my mother-in-law gifts that she likes.

    This may sound not too cool, but I am still ticked off at my mother for dying at 57.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    {{shay}} I feel your pain. My mom passed at age 55. For a long time I thought it was my destiny to die young, too, but I am 57 now, so I have lived longer than she did. She never saw my younger son born and my older son was only 2 when she passed. For a long time it was very hard whenever I would see a mother, daughter, and grandbaby in a stroller. I was angry, too, for a long time, that my mom never got to experience the joys of being a grandma and that I was left to figure out this thing called motherhood all by myself, without any of her guidance and wisdom.
