Way too much information But she is probably justified in the rate increase. Sorry!

Is that with the surcharge for Sunday purchase. I got hit for that the only time I bought, normal, medicine in NZ. The good side was the treatment was free because I said I was Australian. They did not even ask for papers.
I've never tried buying medicine on a Sunday - The chemist I use is only open Monday to Saturday. But, yes, Ausies get a lot more for free here than NZ'rs get in Australia!

I took apart a lens 10 years ago and still find teeny tiny ball bearings on the floor in the corners every so often. The lens still works...sort of...but it makes some grinding noise and wobbles a little.

Now that is reasonable! 8 times a year would be plenty and would save me a bundle. I'd still have to pay Mrs Rupert and take her shopping, but at that price I could handle it!

Regards!
At that rate you'll be able to go for 52 times a year!

This is a fairly straightforward medical condition, often caused by age, or as in my case specific medications that can reduce "abilities". Not much has proven successful as a remedy until these new drugs appeared...which in itself was quite by accident.

They do work well, but until the patents expire, the prices are going to be sky high here. May be that I will have to buckle under and pay the price.....unless it is not too late to become a Tibetan Monk?

I asked Mrs Rupert about a discount, to help offset the cost of these things.....but she said she is thinking of a price increase since I am not in her great shape and she ends up doing most of the work......so I should have kept my mouth shut...as usual.

Regards!
A quarter pill does the trick, so you could reduce cost quite easily.

Yep, looks like we need some bacon again.
Will a bacon pear pizza do?


That is a great combination. All it needs to make it perfect is a bit of blue cheese added!

Even Australians don't get it so cheap at home.

But it did give me a good line with my US friends, which country gives you free medical care because you tell them you are an American?

Never considered it...but it actually sounds pretty damn good!


Ditto.


Bob appears to have missed his calling. Sure, he may have enjoyed surveying. It may have given him a satisfying and prosperous career.


But if the photos of food he prepares are any indicator, he could have made a handsome living among the likes of Emeril Lagasse, or Alton Brown.

BTW
- I quit smoking years ago, but do get a craving for a big cigar every so often. Those look fantastic.....maybe I will drive up your way next spring and try one? Got a grandson's graduation in Albany Oregon next May...........

Regards!


Albany.


That's about 5 1/2 hours from me.


Just a bit less than Laredo is from you!

You and Mrs. Rupert need to take an overnight vacation. I hear it is nice down there this time of year.







Yes, the Cohiba is an excellent cigar. Goes very well with Scotch.


Nice to have on that 'special occasion'.

Maybe for normal sized equipment, but not if you have the super size! Heck, I might need two pills!

Actually, on date night Friday, Mrs Rupert was so sexy lookin' I didn't need a damn thing. I told her she should dress like she was more often, sure beats an old housecoat and hair curlers with a mud pack on her face!

Regards!

Might even get myself one of those, due out this spring, doohickeys.

Wouldn't it be better to get a custom one with a big hociR on the front?
