Editor’s note:

Bag Lady and Shopping Siren are off this week enjoying the fantasy of a refreshing trip to Anchorage, Alaska, where it is 68 degrees and much less than 100 percent humidity.

They will be back next week, cool, calm and ready to dish. (Literally, they will require dishes for their shopping adventure.)
