"Taco Bell - Why Pay More?"

Today, at the Taco Bell, the young man at the drive thru informed me that my debit card was declined! Somewhat bewildered, I paid cash. I do only use this account for expenses, and I do sometimes run low... but I was sure I had money in the account. After I got home and checked my on line banking - here's what I found. The kid wiped me out! Jeeeezzzzzz! They've promised to credit the transaction... Welcome to French Lique.
Check Card Authorizations Pending

Welcome to French Lique

I was reading a book this week by Laura Lippman, and the characters were traveling through French Lick, Indiana. I love that name!
Now, the great state of Texas has decided to put a highway though our little town. They call it the Texas Corridor Highway, and it runs right through the middle of Texas, from Oklahoma to Mexico....
So, once they put a highway through our livingroom, I've decided we'll just have to move somewhere else out in the country.
We'll build a little house, and a new little town, and we'll name it French Lique. Stay tuned for more.
