Hey commenters, "The Wire", "Deadwood" and "The Sopranos" are admittedly addictive. Most HBO and Showtime dramatic series are unavailable for streaming instantly with Netflix however.

ME TOO!! It's just like a wet dog smell as someone above mentioned. I suppose its REALLY wet sheep smell as it is 100% wool. Jeeze, so glad to realize it's not me...was totally getting paranoid over this, LOL.

Texts are .30c each for those of us who've opted out of that feature on our cell phone plans. Risk annoyance if you leave one uninvited. Leave a voice-mail and the reason you called, even if it was only to catch up.

Sorry, but that looks a lot like a metal ammunition box from a military surplus store to me.
