For dinner I got a McDonald's Chocolate milkshake and a Windy's Baconator Double. Both orders came out correct, although I think I was shorted on the milkshake.

And in yet to be determined news (TMI anyone), wife is running around in summer lingerie because she likes how it makes her feel. LOL
Pics (of Baconator)?

Ebay, bid on a clock movement, $20. Next guy, $20.50. Me $25. Check yesterday and the high bid is $22.08. What idiot would bid that and what happened to my last one. I was on the smart phone and didn't care that much to see about it.

This AM, "You're the high bidder $22.08." I'm the idiot. :D and saved $3.

I'm pre-approved by Ford Credit for 84 mo/0% financing to buy a new truck...don't qualify as an essential worker to buy one. :(
One dealer says he MIGHT have a loophole that will work...but fuck dammit!

Shit...wrong "first world" thread

Go part time in a convenience store, have the paperwork to prove it, show it to dealership and quit part time job?

Not today but I weigh myself every week once on Sunday and this week I was back to gaining (week before was the first week since I started my weight went down, about 1/2 lbs, cause of fail appetite).

Overall up about 22.5 lbs. Still got at least 12 to go. Woot

Governor opened auto sales to the general public this past week...FINALLY. I bought a new 2019 F-150 Lariat yesterday.



They added a few things after that pic was taken...side window deflectors, hood rock/bug deflector, roll-up tonneau cover...stuff like that. Just bling.

I ordered a 'Used - Very Good' condition Sony A9 camera (it did take 3 weeks for them to deliver though)..

I finally got it today and the shutter count on it after I took a test picture was 1...

The camera and all of stuff inside were still in the original plastic..not sure why this wasn't listed as 'Used-Like New'...

So I basically got a brand new camera for $1000 off...

I like that. I'm looking at my 20" JVC TV that I brought home in 1989 by tieing the box to a skateboard. Yes, I rolled it home over a mile. Last time I tried to turn it on I couldn't figure it out. It's wired to a digital --> analog converter.
A little over a year ago I dropped off that 20" CRT at an electronics graveyard facility. Also, the JVC SVHS VCR that no longer functioned properly. It was the first SVHS VCR available anywhere, JVC developed the technology. Cost me $1000 hard earned dollars and I brought it home on my bicycle after buying it at a local hole in the wall independent store on the town's main drag.

Where I had that setup I now have a TCL 43" 4K Roku TV/Monitor along with a cheap Magnavox 4K player. I LOVE them!!!!
