Thursday



It was another cold, dreary morning. But this time there was no rain. The sun did come out briefly, but soon it was gone.

I went to lunch at Time Out. One of the specials was an “Old German Cheeseburger with fries.” Being an old German myself, I had to try it. I did ask the waitress what that meant and she said the patty had onions, green peppers and carrots in it. Hmmm…

I skipped the fries and had a cup of excellent chicken noodle soup instead.

The “Old German Cheeseburger tasted like meatloaf with cheese on it. Really, really good meatloaf, though. Since I like meatloaf, it was delicious. But, I still don’t know what exactly made it an “Old German Cheeseburger.”

I left there and went to fill my truck up with gas. I paid $2.79 per gallon!!!

I had a call from the Nissan dealership. My splash guards came in. So, I set up an appointment for 5:30 today (the service department is open late on Thursdays) to get them installed.

I left work at 4:30 p.m. to (hopefully) beat the rush hour traffic. I got to the dealer just after 5:00 p.m. In less than 45 minutes, I was back on the road, heading home.

I had checked them out at the dealership and then once again in the garage. They are more subtle than I thought they would be (I thought they would stick out more from the fenders). I like them!

Since I ate the last of the Pasta Alfredo with bacon last night and it was late for making a real dinner tonight, I opened a can of Dinty Moore Beef Stew. I warmed that up on the stove and then ate it with buttered bread.

I watched some taped TV, but turned in before 10:00 p.m.

  3. @ Carla: Thanks! I like 'em!!!
    @ GPF: I know what you mean. I thought they would stick out further to protect the sides. But, its a cleaner look than I thought and, if they keep the shit off my truck sides, I'm cool with that.

  4. It is subtle. You'll have to let us know how they work out and keeping the crap off the side.
