Although I have not been informed, the wife took one of the kittycats to the vet this morning. That is the only reason she would get up at 7:30 am. I’m not gonna ask, as I know it’s gonna cost $$$.
The kid is off today, and supposedly, she is getting the tires replaced on
her the car. It’s 11:45, and she hasn’t left yet.
I am up to get my truck inspected sose I can get the license sticker for October. I have not felt up to driving to the big city and get that done. I made the mistake of telling the wife I would have preferred to wash my truck before taking it in, and now she wants me wash her car too.
I would do both if I felt better, and I hate to make things worse. I am thinking I may have some bronchial issues, as I am now wheezing from time to time.
Washing my truck is easier than washing her Escape, as hers as an acre of roof on it, that can only be washed by some fool (me) standing inside each open door to reach all the nooks and crannys on the roof…I guess I could just leave it alone; she is rather vertically challenged, and may not see the roof.. I’d be in for it later, no doubt.
The pickup is easy; just climb into the bed and wash the roof. In and out and done. I prefer to use a chamois to dry it off, and keep those pesky water spots from appearing.
I’m still looking at canning videos for potatoes and beef. It looks like the best way to go for taters is to get a 50lb sack or box; pretty much unavailable here, at least safely. Maybe best just to get them from the local grocery…or bite the bullet and drive the 100 mile round trip to Sam’s Club in SA. Of course, that trip would entail me spending $500 at the store, as so much is not available to ship.
So the kid dropped in on her way to the big city tire store for new shoes on the Hyundai. Looks like about $650 for Michelin tires plus whatever they charge now for “road hazard” insurance…Peace of mind, man; Peace of mind…for me too. Dang little car has 16″ wheels, according to Discount Tire site…I did not know that.
Cloudy today, and the temp is still at 76° at 1:30 pm…nice. I’ve had the doors open since I fell out of bed at 9:00. The wife returned to bed after I got up.
Remember when you could buy a fresh pork butt for .99/lb? Those days are gone, man…$2.54/lb now. That’ll drive the price of tamales upwards. Get yours today!
