My wife and I have been sleeping on a king size pillow-top mattress for about 15 years or so and it's getting a bit long in the tooth, as if beds had teeth. Maybe just old is a better way of putting that.

You know what I mean by an old mattress -- claw marks from the kitties, indentations from where you sleep every night. It's not even worth flipping anymore because the divots are the same on the other side. We knew it was past time to get a new mattress but you how expensive they can be, and you never know if you will be able to sleep on the new until you get it home and try it out. Then what happens if you were wrong? I don't even want to think about it.

About a week ago we were introduced to a new, locally owned company here in Texarkana called America's Mattress. they feature the Serta iCloud Sleep System. Oh my, what a bed.

Jason and Tabetha were helping us that day, make that teaching us, about the advantages of the iCloud Sleep System. They were extremely knowledgeable and happily put up with my silliness and questions. In the end they have proven to me for sure that the old adage is true: "Never scrimp on what you wear on your feet or on what you sleep."

If you have back issues, you need to check out the iCloud sleep system from Serta, proudly made in Texas, by Texans. My new bed is being delivered this week and I can't wait to sleep on it. Ask about the "Zero Gravity" setting. Oh my.
