That’s Going The Wrong Way . . .

Jan and I headed out for lunch et al. about 1:30, with our first stop at the Cheddar’s up in Clear Lake. Cheddar’s is one of our go-to places, no matter where we are in the country, and we’ve eaten at them all over too. And as usual at places we frequent, we both have our favorites.

Jan got her usual Key West Chicken and Shrimp with Green Beans and Carrots  as well as some of their Bourbon Sauce.

My fav is their Vegetable Plate, which comes with a Bowl of the Chicken Tortilla Soup,

Monterey's Chicken Tortilla Soup

as well as 4 veggies and a croissant . All for $7.99. Obviously I like the Green Beans and Carrots, just like Jan.

A really great deal.

Finishing up, we stopped off at my client’s to pick up my saline eye drops that I left there yesterday. While I was there I noticed that the ‘95 Mustang Front Passenger Window glass I had order off eBay for my client, had arrived. My client wasn’t there, but when I mentioned it to Jennifer, the office manager, she said, “But isn’t that a Thunderbird, and not a Mustang?” And when I walked over to the corner of the parking lot, she was right.

In my defense, I didn’t know what vehicle he was ordering the window for. And in his defense, he owns over 20 vehicles, including two Studebaker Avanti’s. I guess it’s easy to lose track.

Our next stop at the El Dorado WalMart for a few things, including 3 gallons of Shell Rotella 15W-40 oil for the rig. I’ll need two gallons to top off my oil level, and then one gallon to fill the new LF9009 filter after I drop the old one to get a better look at the problem area.

Then it was on toward home, with a stop at the Costco on the way to fill up the truck.

When I last got gas a week or so ago, the price was at a low point of $1.67. But as I mentioned in the blog a couple days ago, when I saw the increases at HEB and WalMart, I checked Costco’s price in GasBuddy and found it had jumped 2¢ to $1.69. But by today, it had jumped another 5¢ up to $1.74. This is going the wrong direction.

Don’t know if this is due to the turmoil in Venezuela, or what. But I have a bad feeling about this.

Then after a stop for lottery tickets, and then the PO, we got home a little after 5pm.

As I mentioned yesterday, the oil filter and wrench I ordered from Amazon, was delivered via Amazon themselves. And the order that came in today was also via Amazon.

And according to the tracking, the hard drive coming into tomorrow is also coming by them.

I don’t know yet if this constitutes a long-term pattern, but I do like the Real Time Tracking that Amazon gives you.

Anybody want to buy a used 1995 Mustang Front Passenger Window?
