SATURDAY TRIP FOR SUPPLIES

So after getting quotes for fire sprinkler pipe in Fresno ($2.71/ft and I need 360 feet) we decided to drive to Burbank and go to a fire supply distributor. Drum roll please, the tab was $ 0.67 per foot ! I love Fresno!

We were hungry, but we decided to forgo the Swedish meatballs and go to Umami Burger. This is definitely a 1%er hamburger.

CARSHOW

So this weekend our church hosted a car show in their parking lot. Well, I don’t have an old car but I looked in the garage to see If there might be something interesting there.

Warren left his 2007 Honda S2K parked in my garage and moved to Korea. Well, finders keepers, I think I will take the car to the carshow.
