Little Rascal

Got a catalogue from Rascals electric scooter co. today.  Tells all about their rascals.  Everything,that is, except the price.  I presume that means that you have to negotiate the purchase like buying a car. I know the model I would like.  Negotiating makes it a lot less attractive sale for me. Will put off calling their sales representative.  Will work some more on my old one, or ride my "city bug" a while longer.

It is snowing.  Well, virtually.  As I look out my window, I see the snow falling gently, quietly to the ground.  It covers the ground with a white blanket.  It is gorgeous.It is, however, not cold.  The snow is actually the blossoms from the trees lining the drive way by my apartment.    I am told they are fruitless pear trees, but that doesn't seem possible in this Almond tree country.  Nevertheless, they are beautiful.

Had the Villa bus take me to Wal*Mart today.  Went to the electric cart parking, and sat in cart.  Loaded in a case of 8 oz cans of Diet Pepsi.  Figured if I'm gonna drink soda pop, the smaller the can the better.

Cart wouldnt run. So I left the Pepsi in cart and rode my wheel chair shopping.  Shopped the videos, the books, the magazines.  Then the toys.  Electronic games have gone sophisticated and cheap.  Handheld Scrabble for about $14, and other computer games reduced to hand held size, like Tetris. 

  Ended by buying a new knife, a pocket saw, 10 pens, and toothpicks.  Usually I spent $100 in Wal*Mart, but today I got change from a $5 bill.  All because the shopping cart would not run.
