Oct 24, 2008

Today, the agenda was simple. Go look at some laptop computers, go to look at some exercise equipment at Sears, go to the bank, and go to Lowes :o)

It may seem like a full agenda, but the stores are all within a few miles of each other. The computer (purchased today) was courtesy of American Express Points (allows me to not cart my work computer home every day, and I got a 4G flash drive to allow me to bring work home versus the computer home LOL).

The Sears trip was a bust - they only had one strength training machine, so we quickly exited. After an online search, it seems that Dick's Sporting Goods has a great selection of equipment, so after we vote on Monday, that is where we will be heading.

Bank - mission accomplished, a minor deposit made :o)

Lowes - Beth was amazed when I got back into the truck (Blue), she said "twelve bags," I said yeah; six for Blue for winter traction, 2 for Slick (Beth's Mustang), 2 for Blacky (My Mustang), and two for the water softener. We will need little salt in the Spring and Summer, because we use the bags from winter driving.

Note: the salt is all in the garage, not staged in the vehicles, I want to do nothing to call in the winter weather.

Hope your day went well today, and that you are ready for a great weekend :o)


  1. Hi Ken... I voted yesterday... so glad to get my vote in early. The line was long, but only after I'd gotten there, so my total time at the voting place was less than an hour. I am jealous... I need a laptop... one day, one day soon I hope. I don't know anyone who names their cars... have you or beth read the book The Woman Who Named Everything? can't remember author's name... she named her car too. Cute story for kids. Thanks for visiting me today... have a great weekend yourself.

  2. BTW, I like your little happy dance guy. cute.

  3. I know you remember Alissa from the lab. Her Mom wanted to get Alissa's husband Scott a gift certificate to Dick's Sporting Goods, so she looked up BigDicks dot com.

    She didn't get what she expected. Hahaha!

  4. Love you new Laptop! Good for you...you put your reward points to good use.

    Hugs, Rose

  5. Hope the new Laptop is up and running, it's great to get new toys...lol thanks for visiting my blog, also can you leave me your full link so I can follow you.

  9. Sounds like you had quite a productive day. Enjoy your new 'puter.


  10. Saturday (a.m.)....alive and somewhat well in partly cloudy Miami Lakes. I made a small deposit in a large bank as well and my account is now well over $37.50. Have a great weekend!


  11. Love the smell of a new computer and the way it moves at warp speed....almost as good as a new car.
    I hope you didn't voodoo curse yourself with the mere mention of winter in your blog. For that matter, I hope I didn't just curse myself for even mentioning that you mentioned it......sigh, we're both toast now.
    Have a great weekend,

  12. Sounds like you had a successful day! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  13. We have a Dick's Sporting Goods store here and we love it. Enjoy your new laptop.

  14. Hahaha...sorry I just read Rebecca's remark about the snow. Oh crimey...it's catching..sigh...anyhow sometime in the next year I would love to be able to get a laptop. Simply for the ease of being able to take it outside and still be online. (Hugs)Indigo

  15. I heard the weather reports about snow tomorrow too and I am soooo not ready for it! Michigan weather....

  16. Slick and Blackie
