Well, here it is and I finally got the last of the groceries put away. That should give you an idea of the size of the grocery order I got and how long it takes me to do just one task. I rewrapped all the meats. I only bought beef. I got a case of sticker shock when I looked at some of the meats. So I hunted down the Manager Specials. All of the prices were double digits per pound. There was a lady there looking also going back and forth comparing the prices. I had my regular glasses on and mentioned that I was getting sticker shock. She started to laugh. I told her I better switch glasses and maybe the prices would change. She laughed and asked if she could borrow the ones I wasn't using to see if it would work for her.
I still haven't heard on my food stamps. The Pirate gave me $180.00 in cash and I spent $59.00 of my own money. The $59 is what I usually spend beyond my food stamps. That is for non food stamp items. Bleach, foil, soap products, etc. Hopefully, I will get my stamps before the month runs out. In any event, when I do receive them they will be retro to the day I first applied. So I will once again be able to really stock up with two months. And it will be all dry goods. My freezer is full to the ceiling. I am still ticked off though about the screw up with my food stamps. Even if it has worked out for the best.
Next off to the kitchen to clean up the mess. I want to make Reuben Sandwiches for tomorrow. I finally have all the fixings.
The Pirate has a new job as Manager of a limo company. The company has been in disarray. It has a new owner with more money than he knows what to do with. He bought the company so he could have a chauffeur at his beck and call. The Pirate told him it would be more economical for him to rent a car at the airport and do his own driving rather than tie up one of the limos when it is needed instead for a function. The owner roared with laughter. He told The Pirate not everyone would have the nerve to tell the owner off in a job interview. He got hired on the spot. Tomorrow he has to clean a stretch limo for a Saturday wedding. He also has to examine all the vehicles and make a list of each one of what is wrong and what needs to be repaired. Today he knows all the repair shops in town and went to school with most of the owners or knows one of their siblings. He knows who is a rip-off and who has good business practices. So he is setting up reliable sources to keep the fleet in working order.
Well, off to the kitchen to clean the dishes. It was nice talking to you.
