Funny Things Around Town

Here we have the mac daddy of scooters in the geriatric world. It has an all weather cushion seat with a canopy to protect him from the sun.

Complete with a basket in the front to hold various items including a plastic rooster to lead the way.

Just when you thought your car needed to be cleaned, think again. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw this car on the road. Half of the debris looked like food just bought from the grocery store, while the other half just looked like garbage. How can anyone drive around in a car full of trash?! A car full of hot Florida trash! Gross!

The FURminator

So the other day we went to our local pet store, Dog Lovers, to pick up some food and a brush for the Pugs. We went up to the counter with a $5.99 dog brush and walked out with a $49.99 dog brush! When we went up to the counter the checkout lady insisted that we try the FURminator if we're looking to remove excess hair from our Pugs. We brought along Zoe for the car ride, so we tried out the FURminator at the store. It seemed to do an okay job, so we bought it not knowing how much it was. We got in the car and started to drive home. Looking at the recipt we noticed that the brush was $49.99!! What!?!? We were appalled at the price and just couldn't believe that we spent that much money on a stinkin' dog brush. When we got home we tried the FURminator out. Let me just say, it was worth every penny we spent. It really does the job of removing excess hair and helps with shedding (if you use it almost everyday). I have noticed considerably less dog hair on the floor since we started using the FURminator. We give it two paws up.

Virtual Model

Lands' End has this great virtual model online that you can configure to your personal shape and size. There's even an option for the shape of your breasts, if you can believe that. Luckily they don't have an option for the shape of your belly. :-) After you put in all your dimensions and pick out the outfit the virtual tool will even suggest the best size for you. Although I've never purchased a swimsuit from Lands' End, this one is pretty cute. Right now their swimwear is 25% off plus free shipping in case anyone is interested.

Easter Kicked Up A Notch!

Just when you've thought you'd seen it all... something new pops up. Over in Europe and Canada McDonalds serves a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry! What could be yummier! Oh the creamy goodness!
