Upon entering the garage and opening it yesterday morning, WifeGeeding and I both smelled a strong odor we thought was natural gas. After a cursory look-over, we call Atmos and they had someone over in about fifteen minutes. The Atmos employee couldn’t have been friendlier or more professional, and was extremely thorough in his inspection. Thankfully he didn’t find any leaks and he fine tuned a few things since he was here. None of us could figure out the smell, and it hasn’t come back.
We took a family trip to Wal-Mart yesterday and I was surprised at the number of people I saw vaping inside with those e-cigarette type devices. We also spotted a Lunchable with green mold that had a sell by date of June 1, 2015.
I just want to go on record that I offered the starting NFL lineman in our neighborhood ear protection as he worked on his dually that kept honking when messing with the battery. Don’t blame me if he false starts because of bad hearing, I tried.
My father-in-law told me I could invite any of my friends to hunt on his land in East Texas, so I extended that invitation to our NFL lineman neighbor. He appreciated the gesture but stated he owns hunting land in both East and West Texas.
One more note about him, he’s currently beardless, but his wife hates it, so it will be back by training camp.
I took advantage of Amazon’s 30-day free trial of their Prime service to check out their Prime Day sale that was supposed to put Black Friday to shame. Prime Day was a very underwhelming experience.
This is the most impressive mini-van I’ve ever seen.
The dipped ice cream cone is highly over-rated.
This quote about Tesla Motors from Gov Abbott stuck out, “If you’re going to have a breakdown in a car, you need to have a car dealership there to make sure that the vehicle is going to be taken care of. We haven’t seen that from Tesla.” According to Tesla’s website, there are three service stations in Texas. Part of me thinks when the company decided not to choose Texas to build their battery plant, not allowing direct sales was a bit of retribution.
Earlier this week the last snow pile in Boston finally melted. I expected a lot of dirt and trash to be in that pile, but I wouldn’t have expected “storm drain covers, catch basin covers, more than a handful of fire hydrants.”
