    "None of us could figure out the smell, and it hasn’t come back."

    Good job laying low dude. I never claim mine, either.

    "We took a family trip to Wal-Mart yesterday "

    Your travel agent sucks. My wife is a good trip planner. I know she can beat Wal Mart.

    "Prime Day was a very underwhelming experience."

    I agree. I bought stuff, but it was all stuff that was in my cart/wish list for upcoming events that I was going to buy anyway. If it was cheaper than usual yesterday, I bought it. And you can justify a Prime membership on free shipping and the gas you save driving around buying stuff. We save a ton of money by using Prime instead of driving all over town. You just have to wait a day or so to get it, which is no big deal because I can put off any project for a day.

    "Tesla Motors from Gov Abbott stuck out"

    That is straight out of the Texas Auto Dealers' Association lobbying handouts. It is complete BS. I never, and I mean never, take a car to the dealership. Even under warranty I find other places that I trust more.

    "That is straight out of the Texas Auto Dealers' Association lobbying handouts. It is complete BS." – Jason nailed that one.I was going to say the same thing. The state could easily allow direct sales, but then how would the middle man make his cut? They would prefer only dealers work on cars.

    Amazon Prime Day was Amazon's garage sale. All the funky junk that never sold sprinkled with a couple of nice deals, but you had to be early to find them.

    That toyota van looks great. That is what the Pontiac Aztek should have been… and we'd still have Pontiacs…. oh well now.

    About your Wal Mart trip – I have several times found out of date products at the Brookshires in Bridgeport. Almost every time I go in (I shop there more than anywhere else because of the convenience) I find several out of date items on the shelves. And lately, the last three trips to the store ended with a return trip because all my groceries did not end up in my car.

    You have to be very diligent when shopping today.

    Well, I’m no NFL lineman, but could pose as one of the hunting is good in East Texas. ; )

    And agreed on Prime Day. I was surprised the offerings were so poor. I expected it to be much better as a recruiting tool for prime service.
