How Low Can It Go . . .

Our ad card started hitting the mailboxes this week, so things have picked up at work. Plus we’re getting swamped by customers ordering disinfectants, sanitizers, gloves, and of course, face masks. But we actually sold out of those last week.

On the way home from work this afternoon I stopped off at Costco, no, not for toilet paper, but gas. And found it for $1.75 per gallon. Very nice for me, but not really for the oil industry.

And I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes even lower.

As usual I have a couple of repairs scheduled for the weekend. First up is to check out what’s wrong with the AC/Heater fan in the truck. I lost High Speed a while back, but since it was winter I put off fixing it. But now it’s getting warmer, and it’s died completely a couple of days ago, so it’s time to get it fixed.

I’ll probably just go ahead and replace the fan motor and the speed resistor while I in there.

But before I do all that, I’ll check the fuse and power coming to the fan.

My other project is the bedroom sliding door. I think it’s come off the rail a bit, making it harder to move back and forth.

Brandi and Lowell have some friends in town visiting from Colorado, so it was time to break in their pool for 2020. And since the temps are in the 80’s this week, it was the perfect time for it.

Looks like fun.

Tomorrow Jan and I planned to thumb our noses at the WuFlu by having lunch at Yummy Yummy’s, our local favorite Chinese restaurant. And then we’ll probably self-isolate ourselves later for a nice nap.

Thought For The Day:

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.  – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
