    I CANNOT wait to leave!

    I get the same thing walking in my town because we have a homeless mission and a women/ children mission close by where I live. The police officers slow down to make sure I'm ok,and when they understand what I'm getting ready to do they're interested in finding out about it.

    the privilege of being able to walk !!!!

    I would use it if it was made by Walmart Corp. I live in Florida, lots of humidity. I've seen generic ones save lives during heatstroke in Texas oilfields. I'm sold. But, to each their own.

    So agree! Mines like a wide long tube. I wet mine at about maybe 1:00 and is still chilly.

    My husband is the safety coordinator for his company and a lot of his crew work outdoors. The company supplies these workers with a cooling system you wet and wear around your neck. I got one today at Lowe's, followed the instructions and 45 minutes later it's still cold. Granted I'm not...
