That’s What I Get . . .

for ‘Dream-Solving’ a problem. At least without double-checking it.

I’ve mentioned before that when I’ve got a problem to solve, quite often I’ll ‘sleep on it.’ Whether it’s something I’m trying to fix or build, or a computer or software problem, it’s  surprising how often it works.


I ending up napping during Wheel of Fortune last night and when I woke up, I thought I’d come up with a solution to why our new Instant Pot fails as a slow cooker. At least in comparison to our old Hamilton-Beach slow cooker.

When I’m working on the blog during the day I’ll jog down themes or ideas, fleshing them out then or maybe later. And in this case I wrote down my idea immediately and then set it aside.

But something kept nagging me the rest of the evening. However I couldn’t put my finger on it.

But then as soon as I  posted the blog and sat back to read some on my Kindle, it suddenly dawned on me. And by the time I checked my email and comments, “Nooo, don’t do it’s” were pouring in. So next time I’ll reread everything before I post.

I called in some prescriptions for Jan this afternoon, two transferred down from the Wal-Mart in Conroe, and two from the Sam’s Club. And about 30 minutes later I got a text rom Sam’s saying the two prescriptions were ready, and the cost was $133.92.


When I called in the prescription, I told them to be sure to price them under my Sam’s Plus card and even gave them the card number. So I called them back and guess what?  They hadn’t priced it against my card.

And when they did, the cost dropped to $24. Much better.

I guess they still like me. At least I got an email today from the Escapees wanting to know if Jan and I want to do our Gate Guarding for Fun? and Profit seminar at the upcoming 58th Escapade being held in Sedalia, MO May 27th to June 1, 2018.

Guess we’ll have to think about it, since we haven’t really talked about attending. We had planned to do FL and some of the east coast next year, so we’ll have to see.

We’ve got until January 15th to get our application in, so we’ve got time to decide.

It looks like winter is trying to creep back in. For the last couple of weeks it’s been days in the 80’s and nights in the low 70’s. But it’s going down to 60° tonight and 53 tomorrow night. And even better, days’ in the 60’s and low 70’s. Sure hope it holds.

Thought for the Day:

“1984” was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual!
