I hate our Walmarts sooo much.

Both the one near where my college is and the one near work always are such a mess, the workers are completely rude, and you get a lot of people up from the city, so they don't exactly feel as safe. It's a world of difference walking into Target, and Walmart is just about the only store in this area where I won't shop because I don't feel quite safe.

Even Walmarts not in this area that I've gone too, I walk in and it's like, "Ugh, Walmart, get me out of here." That and every time I've had to shop there, I feel like their stuff is just cheap in quality compared to Target. I'd rather spend a little more and go to Target.

That, and we all know buying groceries at Walmart vs. a grocery store does not save money. Right? Right???
For certain items they are the cheapest;) The one I go to is rather quiet and on black Friday people sing Christmas Carols and make sure the local on duty cops get their lists done:joyfull:

So our 3 cats had appointments for their rabies shots today. They are indoor cats and the only reason we took them in was because we want to adopt another kitten from the shelter and that was a requirement. So we got the 2 boys first for the earlier appointment. When we got their the vet assistant said, " Well we have 2 rabies vaccines. One is for dogs and cats, and the other is just for cats. The one for the dogs and cats has been found to cause tumors." Uhhhh.:oops: I was dumbfounded and immediately said, "The one just for cats then." What in the heck? Why would you even offer the other shot? Why would it still be given?

So our female, Piper, had an appointment at 1:20 today. Lo and behold we couldn't find her. We looked everywhere multiple times. I had to cancel the vet and reschedule for tomorrow morning.:banghead: So I am on the phone with dh while he is on the way home. He says, "Bet I find her within 5 minutes of being home." 🙄I said , "Good luck." He said, "Did you use a flashlight?" I said, "Of course."She is a tuxedo cat so can blend in. So he gets home and what happens? He finds her in less than 5 minutes. o_OThe cat was hiding under one of the couches in the living room! The same couches we had looked under multiple times! That darn cat! :hilarious:
Sorry, couldn’t resist...again.....!!! ;)

That's why I don't schedule Belle and Jasmine for the same day. I keep them off balance.

They also don't go in carriers because both of them hate them. They go on the leash. Everyone is amazed and they let the staff pet them, and the staff love it.

I actually didn't get Belle vaccinated before getting Jasmine. She had such horrible health problems that she couldn't get vaccines for several years, and even now, she only gets rabies; she gets nothing else. I made sure Jasmine was vaccinated before I got her. She came from foster care, I contacted my vet to find her, and so I knew exactly what her health history and all was. Then I separated her and Belle for a few days as a precaution. It worked.

Target is soooo much better here. Walmart is terrible. Amazon is best. 😁
Me it matters how we are comparing identical products. Here Walmart prices are better. Atmosphere and overall customer
It's a fun night here what I hope is finally the last of the pipes we haven't yet replaced started to leak. Guess where we're going to be first thing in the morning:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:
My house that I owned for 30 years-pipes lived all of its life with some nasty well water. One year in we (well not me but I didn't disagree) replaced all the pipes at once. They were galvanized pipe, typical to the era of build. I came home from work to find every pipe cut out and the water shut off obviously but at least before we had children, just the Pup. But one week later there was new copper pipes and 3 years later and welcomed new lake water system and water bills 4x what they once were. :oops:

So I was out on the deck a little while ago. There is a big old tree and the edge of the property near the alley. I heard a crack of a branch. Watched the huge neighborhood raccoon fall 2 stories down and plop on the asphalt with a thud. Wonder if I will see him again?

I saw one our raccoons fall from that distance and go thud and it walked away. I think they have padding for a reason;)

A few years ago we replaced all our galvanized pipe with pex piping. So much cheaper to replace, and the other thing I really like about it, is if there is a problem, it's fairly easy to replace a section.

I'm thinking of creating a separate thread on the Chit Chat Forum.
Photo Tour of the Jersey Shore.
Is that a good title?
Do you think anyone would open that up and be interested?
My DD is at work until 3pm. I've got lots of free time on my hands.
I'll drive to Long Beach Island....then Seaside Heights....then Pt. Pleasant Beach.
A little tour of my area.
Anyone interested?
