Rain in the Desert & Crime

It rained last night!

Are all y'all checking the credit card bills carefully?  We got a call from our Visa card last night wanting to know if we recognized charges made in Rock Hill, SC yesterday.  Why no, no we did not.  Apparently the newest thing in credit card fraud is transmitting skimmers.  They sit on the mag stripe reader, capture your information, and then beam it elsewhere.  The crooks then make new credit cards at their leisure with the skimmed data.  Gas stations are prime real estate for this activity.  We will now await our new credit card in the mail.
Jim continues to suffer the tortures of the rhinovirus  he brought home with him.  We had a brief outing, and then he returned to the couch.
