Happy Easter, Traveling and Chewbaca
This cow was in the middle of the lobby of the Sheraton in New Orleans. It fascinated me and I had to have a picture of it - in fact - several pictures of it.
My trip was so much fun and I will tell about it another time.
Of course, Chewbaca was not the least bit happy about my going away. We didn't let him see Linda this time. He was locked in the back yard so Tom could help me get the suitcase, the walker, and my laptop care out to the car. The first night I was gone, Chewbaca laid staring at the front door waiting for me to come home from work. The second night, he sat with his head in Tom's lap wondering why I wasn't coming home. He was so excited when I finally did come home. We locked him out again to bring everything in and then I sat on the couch before we let him back in. I didn't want to be knocked over. He wasn't really sure he wanted me to go to work. He was waiting at the door for me every night for the next week.
One day last week, the neighbor turned his car around and flashed his lights in our front windows. Chewbaca thought it was me and went to the door. When I didn't come in, he started clawing at the door. He is still not trusting me no to run away. He has a year before I leave again.
Of course, while I was away, I used my credit cards. I mean, being on vacation and all, I didn't want to carry just cash. I didn't think anything about it until I got home. There was a message from the fraud department from one of the credit card companies. I planned on calling them back, but I was tired and didn't really care when I got home. Then I got a replacement card in the mail because the other one was expiring. I called the number and they said it was activated and I could use it. Rob and I went to the drug store to buy a new walker. (The seat cracked in half and they didn't have replacement parts.) The credit card was denied. I was not happy.
I went home and called. I hadn't called the fraud department, so activating the new card did nothing. There was a hold on my card. I had to verify every charge I had made. There were a lot of little ones for junk for the kids.
Then another credit card, the one I paid the hotel bill with, called to make sure that I had actually used it. A few days later I got a call from a credit card I didn't take on vacation with me. It is the one my cell phone is automatically charged to. They wanted to make sure I had authorized the charge. I mean, it is always charged to that credit card.
The message I got was that if you are going on vacation, you are supposed to call your credit card company and let them know you are going. Otherwise, you are going to use your card and they are going to think it has been stolen and cut you off. That could be embarrassing. Next year I will certainly let them know I am leaving town.
I went to the drug store yesterday to return something. I decided to buy some Easter candy. Rob had bought candy at Target because he gets a discount, but he bought 80 percent Cadbury cream eggs which my sister and I don't like. I bought a couple of things and then four egg cartons of marshmallow eggs. They are really cheap, but take up some room. The lady behind me said, "You must have a lot of grandchildren." I went, "No. No grandchildren." My children, adults though they may be, want Easter candy. Besides, the eggs were for me.
Everyone have a great Easter and don't eat too much candy.
