    At least you did it at home. It’s worse when you spend $30-$40 at the Do it yourself Truck wash. Only happened once. The extendable brush I bought works good on the cars, though not really needed. Mostly the brush just sits in the Garage. I used to carry it, even washed mine in the tain, a few times. As long as it quits while still parked, it works. Now it barely sees the Blue Beacon. I only made made it to the Truck wash once, 8 wks ago, Everytime I hit tain,I think glad I didn’t wash the Truck. Doesn’t pay before coming home. Dirt Lot has it covered in dust again. So it goes. $90 for T/T. I can put that to better use.

    So my wife says Tomorrow we’re getting busy around here. I know better than that. Tomorrow never comes around here. She’s been busy doing all “The bills”. I haven’t even gone through my pile of mail yet. I saw Arkansas, on one envelope and just decided not to deal with it!! They are about the dummest bunch, with they’re Advalorem rolling stock tax. They spend more administering it, than they collect. I typically owe $12.00 a year. They send 3 letters spaced a few mos apart to finally get the proper amount decided. I have a good surprise for her, to offset any ammunition she throws at me. I still have 4 Loads to invoice. Surprise!!! That outta calm her down. Got to have an ACE in the hole!! Lol.

    By waiting, I got a good load.
    Downfall, they want it at 2100, Eastern, 570 miles away.
    It’s 1045, and not loaded yet.
    We don’t have sunglasses, nor nitrous boosters, and we’ll need fuel and Def along the way.

    Plane passengers loaded. Pilot and co pilot come down the ramp, dark glasses and tapping white canes. Passengers chuckle, good one, gonna be a nice flight. Get pushed back and rev for take off.
    Long roll, passengers see terminal in the rear view... Start screaming at max decibels.

    Whew, plane pulls up and is airborne. PA still on and pilot confides to copilot.
    "One day they are going to wait too long to scream"...

    Where to buy a propane BBQ? Nothing fancy like $1000 Weber. No Char broils, unless recently improved. Just need a decent one. Stainless steel burners are a must. Any thoughts? Something tells me you guys know where the best deals are. Big Box store specials? All this covid cash has put a damper on deals it seems. $300 tops maybe? Got some Ribeye steaks calling my name.

    Last time I was "looking", Lowe's had some good deals. (Couple years ago, though. Still, I was surprised to find deals on grills at Lowe's.)

    Tractor Supply/Rural King?

    Yeah, hate to say it, but Wally World is worth a look, too.

    Let us know. Post pics. Good luck.

    I'm unloading at a Molson Beverage company.

    Looks like the ransomware crisis is over.
    Beer is flowing freely through the bottling line, and out the door.

    Bad part is, it's 72 degrees out, the wasps and hornets are taking an unsettling interest in my truck, and I forgot my hat, so my scalp is getting sunburnt.

    Can't seem to locate my emergency back-up hat. (The hat that backs up my regular hat, NOT the hat I wear when backing up in an emergency.)
