Okay, so that’s about as dumb a subject line as I’ve ever conjured up …
But if you’ve been dancing around putting off ordering your 2012 Season Passes, yet you want to purchase them at the lowest possible rate … you’ve got till Sunday night to do it.
Sunday night, as in October 9, at 11:59 pm CDT.

Once the second hand clicks to Monday, the prices go up.
Bettye, whom you may have met if you’ve stopped by Holiday Foods here in town, already has hers.
She asked me about when they would go on sale a number of weeks ago and I promised (and actually remembered!) to have a flyer mailed to her.
The next time I stopped by for groceries, Bettye happily proclaimed she’d already received her vouchers in the mail.
We ended up laughing so hard, we sort of held up the check-out line
You see, Bettye buys season passes for her family as Christmas presents every year. She told me she’d informed her daughter, "If anything happens to me — the season pass vouchers for you and the grandkids are in the bottom drawer of my nightstand."
Her daughter, of course, was horrified.
"Mom! What do you mean, if anything would happen to you?"
Bettye and I cackled like a couple of hens at the thought of being on our deathbeds and drawing our loved ones near for one final, loving conversation: My darlings, be good to one another and know that I love you. And don’t forget, your season pass vouchers are in the bottom drawer.
