Nick and Terry Russell rode with me to Bass Pro Shops in downtown Manteca. It's kind of like getting stuck in Lodi again, but there's more to see. The huge Bass Pro Shop has everything outdoor. If you have been looking for the perfect turkey fryer, this is the place!! If ammunition is on your shopping list, they just got in several cases of .22 longs, which are flying off the shelf.
It didn't get better, as one peasant had given her check to the King, who left it at his house across the land. THAT came into play when at the end of the night, we didn't balance and couldn't figure out why. To make matters worse, another wrong key was punched, making the infernal machine think it had $250 more than it did ... which made us short of cash.
For some reason, I always figure these things out on the drive back to MY little castle. Instead of a payout, she recorded "received on account", doubling the error. Today I will call the Tax Collector and explain why none of the numbers make sense!!
Nick met me at the door when I returned home, as I was grumbling about ANOTHER night at the Magic Kingdom. His only words were And You Get Paid HOW MUCH? EXACTLY Nick ... NOT ENOUGH!! Actually, I get a turkey at Thanksgiving. Doesn't everyone get paid in poultry??
I'm sad to say the Russell's will be heading out today to continue their travels around our beautiful country. The temperatures here are starting to cool down, so they are heading South to warmer pastures. Since getting my security lights fixed, my stress level has decreased 90% and I am so very thankful to them for their help. Gosh, now I have nothing to complain about!! Oh wait ... no internet service in two days. Guess I better get my act together and see what I can do about that!!
