I presented the string…
…and he swatted lightly…
…at it, but…
…what he really wanted was to play with that sad piece of peacock feather quill!
I gassed up ($3.40 a gallon), then shopped for groceries. It cost $165, the first time in months, it seems, my total was under $240-$250! Amazingly, too, I actually bought food for a change, the probable reason the total was so low. Light bulbs, paper towels, Press & Seal, and coffee beans in a typical shopping cart add up really fast, as does candy and other “goodies” I didn’t buy today. Well, I did get a couple kinds of cookies…!
How are you two doing without Dougy? Hope you’re ok. I haven’t been online in a while. I often think about how much money I’d save if I didn’t eat junk food. There’s a rare occasion our shopping cart has all food items and I’m proud. But that doesn’t happen often. ha.
Me, too! I had a cart full of just food the last time and my total was almost $80 less than my typical trip to the grocery store!
Andy has blossomed, is more out-going since Dougy died. I miss the little rascal as he was a comedian cat.
Andy still loves that fragmented feather! Your gas prices are about $1 per gallon lower than ours out here in Oregon. Food prices have taken a real surge upwards, along with everything else.
I was surprised how low the price was compared with the last few times i filled my car. Fortunately, I rarely need fill it more than once a month, it is so fuel-efficient.
The simplest things please kitties. 🙂
It’s a good lesson for us all!
Hard to understand , Doug.. here in Europe all of the prices go up (due to the Ukraine war , cut tap of oil by producers in Eastern area , inflation..). But I am glad for you,
What about Thanksgiving tomorrow ? I wish you a great one .
The source of the oil distilled into gasoline and other products makes a big difference. Also, the number of sources in an area makes a difference. Coastl US, especially the far west, pay outrageous amounts for gasoline, but the sources where I live serve a smaller population. Also, goverments of each state set a tax on top of one the Federal Government’s tax. That tax is highly variable.
Andy is set in his ways, as they say.
I will have mine with my cat since my only close relatives all live in Texas or the Pacific Northwest.
It was in that range here a couple months ago when I paid $5.35 a gallon.
Your fuel price at the pump is way less than here, Doug… Upper end of 4 dollars, to five dollars plus happens overnight. Yeah… We have a bunch of clowns in office.
Aside from the price of gasoline, I agree on the clowns.
