My father in law has an electric grill that I have used several times, and my wife and I have been looking for one like it on sale for the last few months. My frugal wife is walking through Target, and sees this in the Clearance section!




So I arrive home, find my wife's car in the driveway, and wonder why she didn't park in the garage. Imagine my surprise when I open her garage door and see that in the middle of her parking spot!!

I assembled it the next day, and it was perfect. No damage or missing parts. I used it for the first time last night to burn it in and start seasoning it. I grilled a couple of chicken beasts and burgers. They took a little longer than usual to cook, but ultimately came out perfect.

No shame in that game. I love my lil electric steak burner!

Hmmm.... It's a lot easier to smoke a cigar and drink a beer on a lawn tractor than a zero turn mower.

I have my priorities.

True! I considered that... But a 4+hour mow time didn't sound fun to me.

Those Caprice classics are hard to kill aside from the front springs leaving your front bumper almost to the ground.
I drive my C10 daily now after my Jeep went down and don't want to think about gettin one of those new fancy computer operated aluminum cans!
Like a rock! (In my Bob Seger voice) those ol Chevy commercials got me

My neighbor was able to drink his beer while cutting his lawn on a zero turn. He would walk out of the house open his beer fill the tank then cut the front yard. Stop for a refill and head to the back yard. He planned the way he cut depending on temperature, wife's mood, and time. On hot days or a bad mood he cut east/west which took a beer longer. Other wise he went north/south. He just would hold his beer between his thumb and pointer while cutting where more steering was needed. On straight passes the handles came to the center and drove with one hand so he could drink. Most times it was a 3 beer job but he could stretch it to 5 when he wanted to. Scariest part is his yard is only 3/4 of an acre! He bought a case of beef about every three days.

Grumpy...It's not just an attitude, it's a way of life!

Phone solicitors,,,
About 95% of the time Iím capable of simply hanging up, hitting the block button and moving on. The other 5% not so much, donít know why but every once in a while it triggers something in me that causes me to react in a very negative way. Had some free time one day and spent about an hour with some outfit trying to sell me an extended warranty on my truck, agreed with everything they said, told em what a fantastic offer they had, signed up for every possible upgrade and was practically begging them to take my money, finally got to the part where they transfer you to the supervisor to review close the deal, went thru his whole spiel then when he asked for the CC I told him to hold on while I dug it out, told him how grateful I was that they would offer such a fantastic deal on a truck with 375,000 miles on it. His response was slightly less than professional! I donít believe Iíve heard back from them since.
I think the ones that really get me are the ones that start off with Ďthis is not a sales callí then they launch into their sales pitch, Iím thinking Really! Youíre gonna start this off by lying to me?

I love this approach as well, very worth the 4 minutes of watching.
