    So this wack job that use to work for us made it a great day.

    UPS driver shows up. Has or normal stuff and two frozen boxes addressed to her. I tried to refuse it but he said it's frozen good and correct address.. err.

    We found a coworker who knew her, we asked for her to contact the wack job to come get her stuff. After a few hours I get an email saying sorry she put the wrong address in the order, go ahead and keep it, enjoy. $270 in Rastelli steaks.. The few people working and I split it all up.

    Good day. Steak for dinner tomorrow.

    No she left 5 years ago, once in a while packages show up for her. Guess she forgets where she works. These came direct from QVC 2 day air still frozen.

    The battery box for the trolling motor for the johnboat is supposed to show up today. Hope it does 'cause the boy wants to take the boat out on the lake. I don't like having him in the boat with exposed battery terminals. This will keep him safe and allow me to put the battery in a better location to better balance weight in the boat.

    Here's hoping Amazon comes through!

    Well, that's a drag. Box showed up but the battery is dead. Tester keeps saying it's bad but I don't believe it.

    The Lightning's battery is dead too. I'm thinking the alternator is bad, though. The battery was new in March 2009, though, so it legit could be bad.

    Gallon of gas was $1.06 and gallon of milk was $3.36

    WOW.

    Almost 1975 prices again! I think it was .77 .

    I could be wrong though. My brother was a gas station guy. Kind of like "The car wash" environment where he was. Big city, uniforms and center office like in the car wash movie. There were a couple stoners working there. Not at work, per say, but you know. B)

    I was short on the price of milk .... $3.63
    for the A2, rBGH-free milk lol.

    LOL...$0.11 B)

    Probably cheaper than water is there. Right?

    I think my wife pays $0.38 Gal. for filtered water here at Lowe's grocery. :)
