Early warning sign?

Tuesday, 4 September 2012

I had quite the ‘to do’ list written out for today.  As is normal, it took me a lot longer to get everything done than what I thought it would.  Getting the new lenses for my reading glasses went off without a hitch.  I found everything on my list at the grocery store, and I was making good time until the check out.  My debit card was denied.  What?  Here we go again.  Baring teeth smile  Yes, it was the same account where I replaced the card a few months back because of fraudulent escort charges in England.  Wells Fargo called me a couple of weeks ago suspecting fraud again when I purchased gas in Manns Harbor.  I thought that was all cleared up.

The card then came up as invalid when I tried to buy a step stool at Ace Hardware.  Since there is a Wells Fargo branch in Manteo, I stopped in to see what was going on.  It seems the card was closed out rather than reinstated after the last episode with the gas.  Grr!  Now, another new card is being sent to me.  In the meantime, I have a temporary card that is good for 45 days.  What a pain in the neck.  I’m glad they’re vigilant, but this was a mess up on their part.

That little delay almost made me late for my appointment at the hair dresser’s, and then I had to backtrack five miles to the refuge office to pick up my latest Netflix.  There were a couple of other errands along the way, and it was close to 4:00 by the time I finally made it back to the rig.  All in all, not a very exciting day.

I did find some evidence, when I was getting Emma’s dinner ready, of the possible existence of a rodent under the kitchen sink.  Out came the peanut butter, and the trap is set.  Seems a little early to have to deal with mice considering the continuing hot temperatures.  I’m prepared, though, and will now go out and set a couple of traps in the water/dump bay. 

Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later,  Judy
