    We have a retail bag fee here. I think it's statewide. If I place an order at Target for in-store pickup, they will charge me 80 cents. But I can also get free shipping, which will cost the store more than 80 cents. So if I want to save 80 cents, I cost them more money.

    I freaking LOVE my hotel in Philly. May be the nicest Marriott I’ve ever stayed in.

    Almost makes me sad I’m only here for three nights!

    I'm taking my mom to the hospital at 4 in the morning. She's getting her first of 2 hip replacement surgeries. I was already worried about the surgery but now I have to worry about a hurricane too. I didn't need that.

    Good luck to both you and your mom, Gary. I hope the surgery goes smoothly, and also that Ian doesn't cause any issues. Best wishes.

    I hope things go well both with the surgery and with avoiding the worst of the storm.

    Thanks everybody. Unfortunately after we got to the hospital and had been there a couple of hours the surgeon canceled the surgery. It was for something minor but my mom has been in a great deal of pain and now it gets put off another week.
    I was also relieved that she would be in the hospital while the hurricane blew past and now she won't be there. We live a block from a creek and the house has flooded before.

    I hope so too. My mom can't walk at all because of her hips and she can't even sit in the car for very long.

    Could she lie down in the back while you head out of town?

    No. She can't even sleep in bed anymore. She sleeps in one of those chair lift recliners.

    Thank you. I decided that we need to get out of here just in case. I booked a hotel room on the east coast of Florida, Hopefully we'll be high and dry there.
