They sold the house across the street. There’s a lot of activity over there, with a lot of people involved, so it’s hard for me to tell who actually lives there and who is just helping. I think I’ve picked out the owner…he looks about my age, and he smokes (I say that, because he was standing on the front steps smoking when they delivered his fridge yesterday). Can’t tell if it’s a single guy or what. There are four cars over there now, so I’m not going to be able to figure out who’s who today.
When I told Junior that they’d sold the house, he did say he hoped the people like kids. Odd, I never expected him to be aware of people who do and don’t like kids. He must have picked that up somewhere.
I see that the news is finally discussing my jump in gas prices (I paid 1.29 today). This is the AP story:Yahoo! News – Gas Prices Begin National Climb “Analysts say a recent decision by OPEC (news – web sites) and other oil producers to hold down production, and the traditional spring rise in demand as driving time increases with the warming weather have shaped prices.”
They say it’s the biggest 4-week increase since they started keeping records in 1990.
Doing better today. Have a more normal-sized bandage, which means I can do things like type the letters “T, R, F, and C” again.
I updated the The Big DumpTruck with my latest adventure instead of putting it here.
Gas update: It was up to $1.29 at my station this morning. I knew I should have stopped yesterday, but it was raining and I’m a big baby.
