Donuts Make It All Better

It's cool and rainy in the holler this morning. Here at the trailer, one side of the sink is full of dirty dishes, the other side is stopped up with God knows what and I've got at least one load of laundry I need to be doing.

I don't plan on doing any of it.

Yesterday's marathon shopping trip to Big City didn't produce a new car for the Amazon. Would you believe that as desperate as all the used car dealers supposedly are to sell something, all but one was closed by 3:15 p.m? If my bread and butter was moving used cars, I'd at least be open until nightfall... wouldn't you think? We did find signs of life at one lot, but it was too high dollar for the Amazon's budget. She did find two possibilities at one of the closed ones. There will be phone calls Monday morning to find out when they're open or to set up an appointment or whatever the hell you have to do to see a salesperson on SATURDAY for gawdsake.

While we were in Big City, we stopped at Krispy Kreme (per Ma's request) and discovered we had a coupon. Colored sprinkles and cream cheese filling makes car shopping disappointments go away... especially with a half price deal. After that, I took the Amazon to the killer used book store I heard about from a Big City Plurk buddy, where she bought stuff written in Japanese and comic books (she's such a nerd) then to the A.C. Moore so I could watch her eyes glaze over and drool form in the corner of her mouth when she witnessed the awesometastic yarn selection.

Yeah.. the Amazon is one of those knitters.

While standing in the checkout line, the lady with an armload of yarn behind us handed the Amazon a 50% off coupon. She said she always prints two and gives one away. I thought that was a pretty cool thing to do.

After that, we went and hung out at the Tractor Supply and picked up some bedding chips for Ozzy's pen. I checked out the truck tool boxes while I was there... because apparently I'm becoming like... a redneck woman and have found myself admiring truck toys lately.

I'm a little afraid.

Maybe I need a vacation.

In the meantime, I think I'll go relax a bit and enjoy the quiet. After I plunge the sink. And toss some clothes in the washer.

Ya'll enjoy the rest of your weekend. We'll talk again soon.

Later Taters!

Car lots closed on saturday before 5 or 6??? How crazy is that? If they want to stay in business they'd better wake up!

I suspect you don't want to go as far as Sanford, but someone in my family has a used car lot there, and I think he is open most Saturdays. Most of them close early now because it costs them more to stay open, and when there is no business coming in, they figure it is cost-effective to close.

Good times and bad, if they are going to sell, they have to be open. They should all go out of business for closing early in Saturday. GoodG!

Tractor supply is neat, even for we city folk.

Ugh, I ate doughnuts and didn't do laundry all weekend too!

Here in Oregon they are trying to make it STATE LAW that ALL dealerships be closed on Sunday.
