Left home in the snow heading for the City yesterday morning about 8. Drop our Pom off at Petsmart for a grooming,etc. Was 9:30 and the store we wanted to look for new curtains in was not open. Headed to Walmart. The had some nice heavy thermal sets with no price. Found a clerk and found they were going on clearance for 1/2 price. BINGO ! Grabbed two and a nice rod and out the door.
Next stop was Nebraska Furniture Mart. Met a friend there that had a NOS UP calendar for 1988 I wanted for display this year. Picked out the carpeting for the living room, did the paperwork, wrote the check and left happy? Headed for Golden Coral to refuel. The a stop across a couple street to Menard's. Picked out some Wainscoting we liked & a couple other items. Out the door and stopped to pick up the Pom. He was ready to say the least. Headed down the road to a friend that runs a small engine salvage yard/repair shop (when he decides he wants to work). Picked up a good running Briggs Vanguard 18 hp for my Cub Cadet I picked up for $25 a while back.. Chatted a bit and headed towards home.
One more stop yet. Picked up the hydro belt, steering shaft bushing, and tie rod end bushings from a Former Cub Cadet place. He dropped the Cub Cadet due to way to the way they were built. Headed for home. Got unloaded and in the house. Then got to thinking. Now I have to put that Wainscoting on the wall in the hall way. Bought 5 pieces 48 X 32 and only two go on as on piece. Have to start packing things up and get ready to move everything out of the living room in a week. Mean time have to remove the old carpeting and do some minor repair work on the floor. Just what I needed. More work but at least it is inside as it is 10° this morning and talking below 0 this weekend. Come on Spring !
