A Do-It-Yourself Colonoscopy . . . Cheap!

I had a meeting at the house at 3pm with one of the We Buy Ugly Houses people. Jan wants to be sure you know that her house is NOT ugly, but that’s the name they go by.

Turns out they’re actually a nationwide franchise with local agents..

The guy showed up right on time and spent about 45 minutes going over the place. He made us a good offer that is close to what we want, but not quite. So I’m going to call a few other places to see what they’ll offer.

One thing nice about his offer is that it’s all cash, no closing costs, close in 7 days, and more importantly, AS IS. So no redoing baseboards or anything else.

After I got home we headed back out about 4:45 to once again have breakfast at Denny’s, pretty much our favorite place for our favorite meal.

Or at least our favorite for dinner-breakfast. For breakfast-breakfast, or lunch-breakfast, we like The Egg and I a little better, mostly due to their delicious Hazelnut coffee, but they’re only open until 2pm.

Then, after Denny’s, we drove across 646 to the Target for a few things, mainly a fillable lamp base and a shade. Jan wanted to make a shell lamp for herself like the one she made for her sister Debbie on our recent trip to visit her up in Illinois. Jan already had plenty of shells so she just needed something to put them in.

Looks really good, and great for her coloring book sessions.

While we were there we decided to pick up some groceries to save ourselves a separate stop at WalMart. But one thing we quickly noticed was that stuff we were buying, was noticeably more expensive than the same stuff at WalMart.

As we were getting home, I got a call from Rob, the park owner, asking me to try the park WiFi again when we got home. It had been down since yesterday, and Comcast had been out again working on it. They came out yesterday and it worked for a while afterwards, and then died again. But so far this evening it’s still going strong.

Tomorrow we’re heading up to Katy to have lunch with Brandi, Lowell, and Landon at our favorite Little V’s Vietnamese Bistro. Really looking forward to it.

Everyone knows how much I like toys, and I had a new one delivered today. And not only is a very useful device, you can maybe save some money on medical bills by doing your own colonoscopy, right in your very own home.

Yes, you can have your very own $35 Endoscope Inspection Camera,

Depstech Endoscope

handy for checking out tight, dark areas, anywhere within about 11 feet. It even has an LED light on the end to brighten things up. It also comes with interchangeable tips, one with a magnet, one with a hook for grabbing things, and another with a right-angle mirror for peering around tight corners.

I plan to use mine to look up beside the rig’s engine, trying to see where my oil leak is coming from. But just think of all the money you can save at the doctor’s every 5 or 10 years.

Vaseline sold separately.

Thought for the Day

For some people, minding their own business is a full-time job. Or should be.
