Avoid Moonlight area, cruise north to the place that makes panini for breakfast but doesnt have a drive thru. Return the bamboo sweaters and the too short bi stretch ankle pants - refund. Buy two vests, a sleeveless sweater and cardi, a dress/tunic. Spent double the refund. On to REI to use my $18 dividend. Left the store with 3 items and over $100 for more cute stuff I didn't need. Text to friends. Peace. Pick up the dogs after the bank. Leave a cash tip for Oscar who has left for the day.
