Out on a whim


I know my husband can fall for alot of telemarketing....I know this, so considering this, I monitor everything that occurs by mail or by phone. Is that bad!?
Anyway, this cute little tablet we received for free!
Last May we were mailed a short, postcard flyer simply stating, "Come to our meeting (such and such date) and get a droid tablet just for showing up!" 
We bit, or should I say....my husband bit.
He called and put our names on the "list."
Right away we know this is about buying into time shares, which really are not time shares anymore....you purchase points and use them whenever, where ever. As long as you have enough. It is a much better program but, really...not for us. My husband blurted right away that, "we are RV ers." I wanted to crawl under the rug. We collected our droid tablet and went home. It was nice to go out just him and I, and the restaurant we ate at gave us a senior citizen discount! Guess the grays work for something.
No sure how I really feel about that. C&G Design

Good for you! We went to a "car scam deal" against my husbands good wishes and all we got was a scratch ticket and not even a dollar or two when we scratched it! Did you notice I gave you an award? Lost your email.

It got you two out and to dinner and you did not come home empty handed. I would say that was a successful event! :-)

So happy to see you posting again, although, I am not. Great finds. I miss garage sailing. Love your tablet, too.

We are moving again! Transfer to Orange County, CA. Very soon. Trying to really go through all my craft stuff. :-)

Hi Dawn, long time since I visited. I'd say you got a good deal. I used to get offers like that but not for a while. Enjoy.
