    Medical bills for heat exhaustion/stroke are expensive too. There’s “too hot to be comfortable” and then there’s “so hot it is dangerous”. I remember back in 1980, it was so hot, it didn’t get below 100F at night. Unfortunately, I was living in a duplex without a/c at the time. Called my mom and asked how they survived hot weather in the depression when they didn’t even have electricity! Cold baths, soak sheets in cool water, and place over the screen doors and windows. Probably not a good idea in a high crime area, but neither is dying from heat. Thankfully, I had a noon-9pm job in an air conditioned building, so wasn’t out in the heat at the worse part of the day.
    We’ve got actual heat temps here in KS around the 100F mark, with heat indices (adjusted for humidity) around 105F. At least it gets down in the 70’s overnight, and so thankful for a/c (in vehicles and buildings!)

    I’ve got a vehicle like that, it has two fuel pumps. As long as I keep a quarter of the tank full, no problem. Can’t run it down to the fumes, or it will stall. Doesn’t really bother me, since I don’t like the tank to get that low anyway. Actually, it is sort of nice, because my husband likes to wait until a vehicle is almost empty before filling up. But if we drive mine, he knows it won’t work well, even if there is still some gas left in the tank.

    Even though I often buy the cheapest, that’s not always the case with fresh corn. Looked at some priced at 25 cents, a couple of weeks ago, but bought the 5 for $2 instead. The cheap priced corn was dried out, the higher priced was much better quality.

    What happened to Jeri’s “adjustment”?

    I always call it a “straight” shirt tail, not a “flat bottom”. But still the same rule.

    I love kittens, but tolerate cats. If only kittens didn’t become cats…

    At least my kids remember some of what I did for them, because I was a “stay-at-home” (& homeschool) mom until they went to college.

    Yep, never had had cable or satellite TV in my life, and not sorry. I decided I’d be the same way – waste too much time trying to get my money’s worth. As long as my internet connection is decent, I can get along fine w/o TV. Unfortunately, I bought a monitor/TV, so now the rest of my family wastes time watching the broadcast channels. (The sofa only fits 3, and with 4 in the family, I usually choose to read a book instead.)

    I worked for the monkey store when I was a young adult, learned all about the scams of extended warranties. Since I worked in Credit Approvals, I knew it was a scam, as they told us that we could approve an extended warranty for anyone’s credit card, no matter how bad they were at making payments. Save the same amount of money in an emergency fund each month, you’ll come out ahead.

    “Family Practice” is the new name. They do a lot of referrals to specialists. When we were younger, it was nice having just one doctor for the whole family. Ours did almost everything for us back then, even delivered our babies. Now he tell us just to bring him the “easy” problems, and to take the difficult ones to our specialists.
