    Bathing Suit Buying is at a Minimum

    So for as great as this summer weather has been so far I’m proud to announce that I have only bought two bathing suits. This adds to my already vast collection. I previously had gone to www.venusswimwear.com and that is where I bought most of my older swim suits. I used the term older loosely as they are only a couple of years old.

    This year I went to www.oldnavy.com and also www.suncity.com and I was able to find two that fit really well. I ordered them from Herman’s laptop as we lay on top of the bed. It was really neat shopping from my bedroom on Herman’s laptop.

    I originally wanted to shop from my desktop computer, but Herman said no, he wanted to sit on the bed. The prices at Old Navy are really good, and they aren’t so bad at Sun City either. I keep threatening to go to Peeble’s Department Store to buy Herman some suits, but he has three and he keeps telling me that’s enough.

    When I went to Wal-Mart this past spring, their selection was pretty much picked over, although last year, I found a suit I liked and still used. (I actually bought three and took back two. That’s about par for me.)

    I don’t wear much in the summer but bathing suits. And this summer has been especially warm so far. In fact, I have one on as I write this and am anxiously waiting to get out on the beach and in the water. I actually have bought some conservative one-piece suits that Herman keeps trying to get me to wear, which I haven’t worn in three years. I just really like getting my stomach tanned.

    As I’m writing this to you in late June, I’m happy to announce that the weather has been great so far. And so has the water. Herman says he can’t remember the lake being this warm in June before. They say it’s in the 80’s and I believe it, as I was in up to my chest yesterday and it felt great. It’s almost too warm and not really refreshing when it’s this warm.

    But I’m able to get my dose of sun, beach and water time without getting too warn, so all is well.
