A trifecta

Good morning. Well, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I made it all weekend without doing much. 3 days off, nothing.
I did put another year on my phone. Did that online, it's so easy.
I have a Tracfone. My new phone is on the left, old one right. I had the old one for about 5 years, and the little antenna was about to break off, and they were running a really good deal on a new on. Got the phone for $19.95 with double minutes for the life of the phone. So instead of 400 minutes and 200 bonus minutes I usually get each year, now it's 800 with 200 bonus. So I'm now getting 1000 minutes a year instead of 600. Not that it matters. I don't use the phone very much, so the minutes keep rolling over, and I now have 2780 minutes. But at least I have them if I need/want them.
And with the 1 year service of $99.00, it ends up being like $8.25 a month. You can't get a cell phone for that rate anywhere else!

The other thing I did yesterday was put air in the truck tires. I must have a very slow leak in the passenger front, because I need to put air in it about every 3 months. I need the truck ready in case we get that 4 letter stuff later this week. And Craig won't drive his Honda in the snow. Here's a pic of his baby.

It's a 1998 Honda Accord. It's never seen the snow. Not that it wouldn't drive okay in it, It's just that Craig doesn't want the rust from the salt. So at 11 years old, it still looks brand new. The color is called black currant.

So other than that, I was a lazy bum again. Maybe I felt I need to rest up for today. I've got customers from 9am all the way through until 8:30pm. I will be one tired puppy when I get home tonight. But I'll have tomorrow off.
So now I must get ready for work. Later!

    I'm trying to get Bob to buy a Tracphone. He has an Alltel pay as you go phone, and not only are the cards hard to find, we're not sure any more which cards to use.

    Would be simpler if he'd just agree to the reasonably priced double-your-minutes phone. And as you say, very easy to add minutes/service.

    Craig's car looks great!

    Happy Turkey Day to you both!



  2. The car looks awesome but I have to wonder what the point is. Craig my kill me but... It's not like it's a classic or something. Sheesh. :-)

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! Derek, John and Prince

  4. I have the same tracphone. Price is the best, but I don't like that I can not dial Canada directly. Have to dial an 8 digit canada number first, press a couple buttons then dial Canada number. So can not put that into memory. Other than that, it is the cheapest phone out there.
