1977 called, they want their gas shortage back....

While out today, I was starting to think I wasn't going to be able to fill the tank on my truck. Stopped at three stations before I found one that wasn't out of gas, and there I had to fill up with the highest grade, because they were out of the mid and lowest grades. Guess these asshats here are filling up their extra gas canisters again... hoarding gas. Since I was at a station that sold Powerball tickets, I went ahead and bought five "Quick Picks" for Wednesday's drawing, since it is up to $180,000,000.

In other news, I made another "impulse buy", because I planned on getting it eventually anyway, and Wal-Mart had it $13 less than list price, and $3 cheaper than Amazon is selling it for...



Now to eat the double Sonic Burger and tater tots I picked up before coming home.

Winston Tastes Good, Like A Cigarette Should/Had Oughta...

Rather odd seeing Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Nancy Kulp, and Raymond Bailey pushing Winston cigarettes in some of the old promo spots of the first season of "The Beverly Hillbillies". Kellogg's Corn Flakes I expected, but not cigarettes.

Take that back... I have an old VHS of old TV commercials... The Flintstones are smoking Winstons also....
