Not Our Rig . . .

Yesterday was nice and easy, starting with lunch at Denny’s for our favorite Ultimate Omelets. Then it was back over to the other side of the Interstate to the UPS Store to drop off an Amazon return. And by the time we got to HEB next door, I had email confirmation that my account had been credited for the return.

But at almost the same time that Amazon was doing good with the return, they were screwing up on a delivery of ours.

While we were eating at Denny’s, I got an email from them saying that they had made a delivery to our rig, and including a photo of the package.

The only problem is . . . that’s not our rig.

So I figured when we got back to the park we’d drive down the row until we found the 5th wheel with a blue table and pick up our package.

But when we got back to the rig, whoever had received our package, had delivered it to our rig.

Nice Neighbor.

After our UPS stop, we made quick in and out at the HEB right next door. And again the recent price increases hit home.

Starting with our Denny’s Ultimate Omelets, that last Tuesday were $12.99, this Tuesday were $16.50!

And at HEB, the Dole Garden Salad Mix that last week was $0.98, yesterday was $1.38.  Yike’s!  That’s an almost 40% increase.

And then this afternoon when I stopped at Costco on the way home, I found that since last week, regular gas had jumped 20 cents, from $3.49 to $3.69. And to think, on November 1st, 2020, I paid $1.42 at the same Costco.

Another 47 cents and the price will have tripled.

Jan wants to have lunch at Twin Peaks again tomorrow. Sounds great to me.

And now it seems like TP might be getting some competition.  Looks like a place called Boomerjack’s is going to open up, almost right next door.

Previously only in the DFW area, this Webster location is their first outside that area.

Jan likes their menu so we’ll probably be checking it out someday.
