thx for the link!

I had to water my trees since it doesn’t rain for the last 3 weeks. Funny enough, it rained all summer in Montreal… I guess September is the right month to take vacation now!

“discovered.” I love it! It’s a great card though, and a good option for those looking to transfer a balance. glad you had some great weather this weekend. We had a beautiful Saturday, but a rainy Sunday… Such is life. 🙂
