A sale just after a sale occurs.

Did you ever go to a store,  buy something,  and the next day it comes on special!  This is just what happened to yours truly,  this past Thursday.  We have a Canadian Tire store ( Hardware, automotive),  a store that every man loves to shop in.  And,  big specials usually come out every week on tools.  And, of course,  the best part was that the wife always tells me,  "Wait till it comes on special.  Do not buy it now".  That echoes, again and again in my head,  like a slogan of my defeat in a crusade somewhere in a department store, where my credit cards are maxed out and I have only pennies in my wallet.  As I cringe down to defeat!

I bought two garage door openers,  this past Thursday,  at a price of 260 dollars each.  The next day,  they come on special,  at 199.  To my chagrin,  I realized I was duped out of 122 dollars,  then some tax on top of that.  Here in Canada we have a sales tax of varying degrees,  depending in which province you live in.  Ours is 13 %.

Now,  I have heard tell of people from work,  who took the items back with the receipt when such a sale was pending within a few days.  I will try this Monday,  as I am working these miserable night shifts,  which keeps me from keeping ahead of my duties around the house.   Working night shifts must be the worst to burn time away from your life.  You have to try to sleep all day,  then you do not feel like doing any business during the day.  Before,  I would try to do a little,  but now that I am close to 40,  I try to ease off as much as I can.

For my bad writing habits and changing the subject too fast,  no news on the book... Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
