My Story:

When the Bates bought their new motel, they complied with truth in advertising laws - sharks in the pool; very, very hot (burning) showers.

  9. Loved this clever one. Can't believe the Bates' want to rival the Hilton's hotel empire.

    Have a great week.

  15. Good on the sharks but I'm missing something about the hot burning showers? We have a place like yours, I will blog about it someday. The owners call it a 'resort.'

  17. LOL. But it wasn't the heat of the showers, it was the rain of knives that got you.
