    This vintage USA made Wrangler super long sweatshirt that works as a dress and looks great with leggings. It isn't super attractive on me but is super comfy and oh so warm and soft.

    The Black Friday sale forced me to buy a microgreens kit for an Aerogarden. :confused: I ordered two types of seeds to try, Superfood microgreens and Spicy Microgreens. I'm not sure what I will do with a crop of microgreens, but maybe I'll start making smoothies or something.

    These guys have tons of seeds and info on making sprouts and mircogreens. The only Black Friday thing I did was to pick up my truck from the dealer...that pretty much tapped me out.

    I like LG. (Life's Good). I haven't been disappointed with any of their products that I've purchased.

    I never have an order large enough to qualify for free shipping, but they don't rip you off for freight...they only flow though the actual costs. I like their stuff, and the website's got good info. Plus they're the genuine article. They met at a Grateful Dead concert and got married a few months later. :D

    And I picked up my truck yesterday. I got home fine, so I think they fixed it. A large piece of the plastic trim that forms the dash was shattered. The service guy said it was brittle from age & heat, but it was fine the first time I picked it up...they broke it when they replaced the first defective instrument cluster that they installed. Their service guy is looking for a new one for them to put in. I was concerned they had not fixed the overnight draining battery issue (they replaced the battery but did nothing else), but since they had it for so long it experienced a couple of 20°F nights there and started fine for them. Fingers crossed.

    I’ve had a bit of a spend up lately with my new 75 inch T V and soundbar ( Sony ) I bought from Costco a couple of weeks ago
    I got it for a unused seperate lounge room that been more of a store room since we had this home built in 2006 but I’m paying for Netflix but never get to watch it , so its nice I can go in lounge and watch what I want to.

    Not that I’m much of a movie watcher …. but I did watch a movie yesterday on top of watching the last of the crown series when Dianna was killed ……

    Movie I watched about a young American couple who get lost in the Australian outback While traveling to to the Northern Territory https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7336182/

    Last night I ordered this to put a lamp and other trinkets on in same room

    Got some stocking stuffers for the Alaska grands and those who will be here for Christmas. Different stuff than I can get here. Bought gifts for the wife for Christmas as well. We have some lights and such coming form Amazon on Thursday that I ordered form Missouri. What most of you get in a day or two takes weeks to get here.

    These vintage Levi jeans with part elastic waist. So comfy and I love the old straight flare leg.
    It is amazing how the no back pockets gives so much more flex. I used to wear bareback all
    the time for riding. They work great for holding down my recliner hahaha! I have several pair
    of Wrangler barebacks, but Levi barebacks are hard to find.

    I've always like the straight legs. They make me look thinner.:) When I go from my fleece lined pants to straight legs everyone notices.

    When my Sony TV remote quit, I looked at the replacement - $45.00. I.ordered one on Amazon for $8.95. It arrived today. I stuck the batteries in & pointed it at the TV. Everything works - NO nuisance coding, either.

    Since I dumped all this money into my truck, and since the issues seem to be fixed, I ordered a new switch for the driver's door (also gonna need some wiring work), spark plugs and new ignition coils (since the old ones have to be removed in order to change the plugs.) I've been stranded by failed ignition components in vehicles with electronic ignition systems, so I'm gonna get ahead of this one. Rock Auto was $30 less expensive per ignition coil than the local auto parts place for the exact same brand.

    I'll need tires before next inspection (they should really be replaced due to age.)
