Progress Note: Home-Improvement Weekend
Our living room is painted and the grass is mowed. We should be able to finish the dining room today without too many problems.
I rode my bicycle into town this morning for coffee, the papers, and groceries. I have the bike rigged with two side baskets and a plastic milk crate. With a little planning--which I haven't mastered yet––I could go the entire weekend without driving the car. I can also use the exercise, and enjoy riding the bike.
Am I the only one who noticed that as soon as Barack Obama started talking about a windfall profits tax on the oil companies, $4.15 per gallon gas became $3.85 gas? Last week when he went on vacation, gasoline went back up to $3.95.
Why do I think we'll all save a lot of money once Barack gets back on the campaign trail?
In other news, the Bigfoot hoaxsters owe me two good nights of sleep. My six year-old is convinced that Bigfoot is going to come strolling out of the wood lot any minute now.
More (of a literary bent--I promise) later.
