When I do bust loose to eat out, I expect it to cost $30/plate at a sit down restaurant

You obviously haven't been out to a "sit down" post Wuhan.  Everything is going up.

I haven't been out for many years.  I would have to drive 60 mile to get to a decent place.

I haven't been to a sit down place (or ordered take out for that matter) in the time of corona virus. But, I notice prices at the grocery store are up several percent. 

have a nice Friday night Carl.

My wife farmed me out to Co. to do some chores for my daughter. A bit of landscaping (3 tons of pea gravel) and a set of stairs for the deck.

be glad it wasn't river rock.

Anything much bigger than pea gravel needs to be moved w/o the benefit of a shovel.

what's the matter, Steve? Your shoes melt to the jetway?

 

about 3000ft difference in elevation between there and here. 

 

Phoenix is central to lot of recreation, tho.  Like living in Lihue, Kauai. Nothing immediately there... close to everything, if a 45minute drive isn't too much.

Fresh eggs are $3/doz here.

Won't say, they aren't worth...

Hard to compete with the "factories" where price is concerned.

 

We're still enjoying our nice midwestern days. Summers are sorta like the rest of the country...w/o the tornadic t-storms

I was comfortable inside the plane -- just sat there for awhile. not sure why we could sit in a plane with the engine running but couldn't take off.  

guess Southwest Airlines was studying the "will it take off thread" from this forum.

A grasshopper hops into a bar. The bartender says, "You're quite a celebrity around here. We've even got a drink named after you." The grasshopper says, "You've got a drink named Steve?"

There are folks [immediately] in town that have chickens. We can get duck eggs if we want to drive 10 miles.

  This place had coops and all the things to raise chickens/eggs. Fallen into disrepair long before we bought.  I have entertained thought of resurrecting them.

Happy Saturday to all here @CC&C I have some David Bowie playing and a few drinks flowing. Recipe below.

 

1/2 a fresh lime squeezed into a tall frozen glass.

1 shot pineapple juice.

1 shot Bacardi rum.

Ice to half full.

Top with Squirt soda.

Take a fork and push it down a few times
