After a short and very chancy bike ride this morning, we did a bit of running around to pick up some things. It was time for both cars to get new windshield wipers and there were also a couple of grocery items needed. The only place that you can get that mixture of stuff at 8:30 AM on a Sunday morning here in our fair city is Walmart.
We checked the radar before setting out on the tandem at dawn this morning and it looked like the rain was was going to pass to the south of us. And to validate this, as we exited the garage the sky was dark and the sound of thunder was heard from that direction. We mounted up and headed north. We only made it about 5 miles before we opted to turn around as the gray clouds were closing in from all sides. On the ride back a confluences of events, sun rising in the east and dark clouds to the west, led to a wonderful rainbow, often fully complete. Should have brought my camera.
After lunch we headed back out to pick up some more stuff that were not available at our local Wally World, from places that don’t open until later. Goodwill for the male equivalent of the little black dress, a blue blazer. We also had to go to Kroger and buy some of the last available Girl Scout cookies and fill up the Miata with gas.
Later as I entered all our receipts into Quicken I started reading the items on the one from Walmart. 18 Rain-X, check. 26 Rain-X, check. Wiper Blade Qty 2, check. Q-Tips, check. Cheetos, check. Bcbrookies, Qty 2, $2.24 each. What the heck is a BC BROOKIE? I have no idea. It was only 7 hours ago…
It took Donna a minute or two, but she remembered. She is making something for a March of Dimes bake sale at work. It was two boxes of Betty Crocker Cookie-topped Brownies.
Started down, went up, back down, still down.
