Got up early and was out the door before even the cats caught on and could chase after me. My first stop was the post office where thankfully I did not have a lot of mail. The little I had was from those darn house flippers who are never going to leave me alone. The sign on the post office door asking you to wear a mask has been removed, I suppose another one will go up soon?
I have to mention that my new telephone system that blocks Robo, as well as nuisance calls, is working great. It has only rung three calls through...one from my CPA, my doctor's office, and one from a house flipper and they all went to my answering machine. I have since blocked the flipper and she will never be able to call me again!
I needed to buy my prepared salads and did so. On the news, it shows that the price of food, as well as other items, have gone up but here at our local HEB prices have remained the same and if they have gone up it has only been a very modest increase. For example, my salads went from $2.98 to $3.08 something I can live with.
Milk, eggs, and bread, or at least the brands I use (HEB brands) have remained the same. Because of my high cholesterol, I buy 1% Low Fat Milk.
Tomato prices remain the same...
No, JudithK, I am not trolling you :-D Regular avocados .78 cents each.
Jumbo avocados are $2.25 each.
Gasoline went down .02 cents to $2.739 for unleaded gasoline and $2.929 for diesel.
Today we had a high of 104 degrees with a heat index of 112 degrees (in the county, not the city). I was looking at my calendar and noticed that Halloween is exactly three months away. I am usually in Terlingua on that day. I sure hope everyone gets vaccinated so they can hold the event...I really need a vacation!
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
