We’re going to Nags Head. I’m familiar with Rodanthe though as I went to rent a kayak and a bike for my daughter to use while there and the place said they wouldn’t deliver south of Rodanthe. I had to look up where it was to be sure. Fun fact.

It's pretty sparse on the local shelves for both dog & cat food. Sometimes I'll just order from Chewy.

Ive ordered from Chewy for years but ever since the pandemic theyve been out on a lot of stuff.

Just passing the cost of doing business right on to the poor customers.  I am sure someone could find a chart that correlates this directly with gas/oil proces

I told my kids that stimulus money they were getting was an unsolicited loan from the government.  They will get the terms later.

Creeping up on $150 to fill my truck.  When I accelerate to pass someone I feel like I am pushing three quarters into a slot. 

So you're the guy riding my bumper while I'm puttin' along at 55 getting 40mpg

It's the guy puttin' along at 45 who suddenly gets butthurt and accelerates to about 65.  I rarely pass someone going the speed limit unless there is a separate passing lane.  In the case you use the right lane to do so I guess it's like flipping them off.  Same when driving my wife's Honda.

Are you one of those guys frightened by pickup trucks?

Someone said eggs would be $10 or $12 per dozen by fall?  We both eat a lot of eggs, and always get the Kroger-brand 18-pack.   Has been around 1.80 - 2.00 for a long time, about 1.25 per dozen.  Lately that's gone to 2.90 for 18, so about 1.85 per dozen.  We get two packs each week, can manage that for now.

Dog food - our dog is 16, small-medium, fairly active, but has never been a big eater.  I'll get him the  15 lb bag of Kibbles brand small bites, it lasts a long time.  Also the Pet Pride 12-pack of moist burger meat, I can make that last 5 or 6 weeks $6.  And a bag of cheap bacon treats, one per day.   He does fine on that regimen.  I don't want to know what it would cost to give him that gourmet stuff like Blue Bison, but the TV commercials make me feel like a heel for not splurging on him.
