Cool Fact #1--We have AIR CONDITIONING!!! Of course they are saying on the news that we are supposed to start cooling off around here this week, but if 88 degrees down from 90 is cooling off, then I'm glad I have a new AC.
Cool Fact #2--We got a letter today from the Doubletree Guest Suites in Lake Buena Vista at WDW. That's where we stayed when we stopped at Disney World on the way down here. Apparently every week they have a drawing from guests who have answered their survey and they give the winner 2 free nights in their hotel! And the winner for the week of Sept. 9th was US!! Yay. I very rarely win anything and this is great. We loved that hotel. And now that WDW is letting you in free on your birthday, we may just have return to WDW in January.
Cool Fact #3--I had a "girl's day out" with my friend,Diana today. We went to Gulf Coast Shopping Center and did some serious shopping then went to lunch at PF Changs China Bistro. Oh YUM! Best chinese food I've ever had. Anyway, on the way home, I was stopped at the stop light the corner of Summerlin and McGregor and saw a turtle in the middle of the street. Now if you know that intersection, there are cars turning every which way. So I put my blinkers on, got out of the car and started waving my arms at traffic to stop. I got to the turtle and found that it was a Florida Softshell. Not the most gentle turtle in the world. The thing to do is take them in the direction they are headed. When I reached down to pick him up, he took off running--and I do mean running--back the way he came from across 3 lanes of traffic! I didn't know a turtle could run like that. So here I am, chasing him across the street clapping my hands at him and trying to stop traffic. Horns are honking etc but finally a guy came running up to help me and we got him back up on the grass. When I got back in the car I realized that my finger was bleeding. It was just a tiny cut and I don't know how I got it but I think I got clipped by one of Mr. Turtle's toenails. Anyway, this guy is not a potential patient--at least yet--so, I'm talking about him. That is the second turtle I've saved from certain doom this year already. More than I've done in the 10 years we have lived here.
So there you have my cool facts for the day.
