    Today I went out for multivitamins, a few cabinet organizers and a new toothbrush holder.

    I also picked up a pair of white crop pants, a pair of demin crops. A peach top and a plaid shirt. Oh, also a toy for doggie!

    I've put on 16 lbs so it's another size up to what I was, not huge but noticeably different of course...but as you rightly say health is more important...

    Chrissy, when I quit smoking I gained 40 pounds over about a 2 year period. It took another 2 or 3 years to get back to my normal weight. But quitting smoking was well worth it. That was over 20 years ago.

    Actually, last week. Got a used IPhone 5 and I'm loving it. I have a IPad Air so everything is so much simpler now. I can even answer my phone on my IPad. If you ever need to sell or buy phones, iPads, etc., check out Gazelle.com. Great folks to deal with.

    I bought my first bluetooth earphone set this week, I am amazed at the high quality sound it gives, it has noise cancellation as well as isolation, so should be good on my aircraft flights, as engine/cabin noise often interferes with listening.
    Having no trailing lead is another advantage as I was always catching it on something.

    They only cost £15 in the US $18 so a real bargain for the quality.

    I bought a new light fixture for over the kitchen sink. For the first time in over 20 years I have a light there. My husband told me long ago he'd get around to rewiring it and putting in a new fixture and by golly he did!!!

    So true, Karen! Pickles doesn't care what I wear as long as he doesn't have to wear anything.

    Kind of wish he liked to dress up, at least a stylish sweater in the winter, but no...he'll bite if you even try.

    An update on these earphones which I have been using every day since I bought them, they have changed my life in that I can listen to music while wandering about the house or garden, without taking the tablet/laptop with me and the quality is so good, I get completely lost in the music.
    Music has always been my lifeblood from childhood and I can indulge myself even more now. ;)

    Excellent for watching movies as well.

    These are a few of the new things I got this week while shopping with my sister. I don't care to shop much but spending my Birthday money with my "twin" sister actually turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. :)

    Well, let's see. We ordered, online, a new Battery Charger/Tender specifically for Marine Batteries. The new one is much faster at charging a marine battery than the other one we have.

    Then, wife and I decided, since it was on sale for some $330 off, to get me an Adult Supreme Edition Darth Vader Costume. Already have one, but not nearly as good as this one. Yes, it costs, but wife and I absolutely love the way it looks............just like it came off of the Star Wars Episodes 5 and 6 sets. Heavy duty injection molded plastic and the lights on the chest and belt light up. Really cool looking. One thing to always remember, people (in all age groups) use their money in different ways, from gambling to buying a nice motorhome, new "dressed" motorcycle, going on a cruise and so on.

    Anyway, will be selling my other costume.
