Wiped Out . . .

You may have seen the recent TV commercials about the Michelin Extreme Performance Wipers being sold at WalMart. So since the wipers on Jeep were streaking and squealing, I thought I pick up a set when we were there last week.

When I found them, they were $22 a set, a little pricey, but the high-end RainX one’s right next to them were $14 a pair, so I thought the Michelin’s would be worth it. That is, until I got them home and looked more carefully at the package.

It was $22 for ONE wiper!

So now I’m going to have to save up to buy the 2nd one.

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and apparently that goes for Tesla and Elon Musk.

Musk’s new Tesla Gigafactory recently went on line near Austin and the place is enormous.

But this one covers only a small part of the 2000+ acres that Musk bought. And now there’s a new, even bigger, battery factory going up right next door.

And to celebrate this, Musk has scheduled what may be the largest BBQ in Texas history for April 7th.

Tomorrow we’re heading up to the Spring area to have lunch at El Palenque with Debi & Ed Hurlburt.  Had to delay a week due to conflicts, so we’re really looking forward to it.

Thought For The Day:

I told Jan that she’d only be able to look at this for about 5 minutes before she would down on her knees trying to pry that tile up with her fingernails.  Yes, she’s a little OCD.
