I don't know about other places but gas is actually down quite a bit here. $3.89. Yeah, not cheap, but cheaper than $4.25 10 days ago.

I don't remember when it was that cheap. :) 37 cents/gallon when I got my license. But I do remember when you could get a McD hamburger, fries, and a soda for under a $1! haha....
Gas is down to the $3.80 something range here. Who woulda thunk that would be good?????

Back in the day I could have a good time with $5. Enough for gas for the car, a couple of beers and a couple of rounds of pool or foosball. I think gas was under $1 when I started driving because I remember the horror (
) of when it went over $1/gal. And I was only making $1.10/hr at my job.

I know gas was cheaper prior, but I started remembering gas prices only when I started paying for it. I could get 3 gallons of gas for $1 - and I am older than El - when I started paying for it and in the same area as her then.
DH remembers a price war that took it down to 17 cents per and it was normally 25 per. DH is 68 today.

I told him Socks said H Bday and his question was how did she remember that?
He said to tell all of you thank you. He has had phone calls from 2 kids so far today and was surprised by a call from a friend he has not talked to in ages - happily ensconced with my cell phone to his ear since we had to return the call, kids come first!
By the time the ladies left today (after doing some hefty shopping at the gift store!) we were too tired tomove. (They were truly nice ladies on what ended up a girlfriends weekend - DH did Chapel so I could sleep and said they did not get in until 3:30! Glad I was not waiting up! I would have just left the door unlocked - not a problem here, but he would NEVER!)

I can already see it as a special promotion right there next to your golfing special.
.
Wouldn't that be a hoot!! I wonder how many porno e-mails that would generate for me. The golfing special did wonders!

Happy BD DH!!!!!
=)
Kk..
Hi Kk. I have on my organizer today is your birthday 8-8, same as my sister.
.
Thank you!!! It was actually yesterday (8/7) but I like to celebrate "birthday week." (Which is good since I worked a LOT yesterday.)
I went to my diet group but then dh said I couldn't come home. He and the ds4x2 went shopping and got me a yellow T-shirt. Dh ironed sequined letters on it that say, "THIS SHIRT WAS CLEANED TODAY." Then all over, front and back, it has hand prints from the boys, with lots of smears, and a faint, large hand print in the middle of the back from dh with x's and o's on it. So what it's too big? It is the best birthday gift EVER!!!! (I've been saying for a year that I want a shirt that says, "MOM. I was clean when I left home" but dh couldn't remember the exact wording.)
And Happy Birthday to your sister!
=)
Kk.
