A memory foam bed for my old lab, thinking it might keep him from using my memory foam bed - not that I mind him being on the bed but I'm afraid he will hurt himself jumping down as he is not a young pup anymore.

Hey Birdie--that chair in the clip was, as they said, the "Rolls Royce"--wow! Loved the little shelf.

the one I ordered is from Coleman and has just a little insulated bag hanging off the side:

Happy 4th everyone!

I bought Ziploc Big Bags (XL). They are definitely large--actually extra large. Could easily keep a severed head in one, with plenty of room left over for shoes and carrots.

A case for my new continuous glucose monitoring system. The one it came with sucked big time.

My mom finally said she wanted a Kindle. I ordered her a Kindle paperwhite with one of those incredibly expensive covers that turns on the Kindle when you open it.

Prime member. Chalk it up to entertainment budget because I've never calculated if it makes sense with respect to shipping charges.

redduck, I love those! Great for keeping out of season clothes in, and we used them when we lived on the sailboat to transport clean clothes from the laundromat by (sometimes very wet) dinghy ride back to the mooring!

I just ordered three mower blades for the bushhog, a new keypad for the auto gate opener, and a replacement shocker collar for the Houdini dog.

Haven't had that experience with Amazon, but I have ordered stuff from Canada, "standard" shipping that arrived on my doorstep next to the TX-MX border in less than 24 hours. Boggles the mind!

- grippy socks for MIL. (She's had a few falls walking around her house in regular socks - so perhaps the silicon bumps on the bottom will help.)

- skinny legged pants for my 13 year old. Much to his dismay I did not buy them in bright neon colors - but rather in colors that fit his magnet school dress code. (Has to have khaki/tan colored pants and maroon/white/gray collared shirts.) I'm to cheap to buy him clothes he can't wear to school or play sports in.

Mentioned this in the OTA DVR thread:

Also, for a looong time, I've sorta, kinda wanted a tablet, but didn't really need one (DW has an iPad). I've been holding out to see if I can find a decent one with 1GB RAM, HDMI, USB, and SD-Card capability at ~ $100-$150. Occasionally saw some from real off-brand places with questionable reviews, so I've passed until now.

Found this Acer Iconia A1-810-L497 (AKA NT.L2RAA.002?) @ $123 (a few $ less at rakuten - formerly 'buy,com' compared to Amazon, but close enough for this thread?):

8" 16GB Android 4.2 Grey - Shopping

Acer | Iconia A | Iconia A1-810-L497 | Overview

Acer's website is terrible. They have dozens of tablets with slight variations in the number scheme, with no clear (to me at least) pattern to numbers versus features. Their 'compare' didn't work for me, and their 'features' versus specs' are a jumble of what might be included on one versus another. Anyway, the reviews I found were pretty good, camera probably not great, and a little larger than more $$$ units (but you have to expect to give up something, right?).

And this has GPS as well. So if all this works well, that's quite a few extra features over an iPad for less than 1/2 the price. And I prefer the Android app store over Apple's policy of publishing only the latest version of an app (which can make older devices that can't be upgraded to the latest OS obsolete sooner than they would be if you had access to the older versions of the apps).

Two 18x24 cherry picture frames, package of artgum erasers (I make a lot of mistakes adding/dividing fractions and do it on the back of the mat) a yellow ink cartridge for the photo printer, steel two-foot ruler with cork backing, Logan oval and circle mat cutter, flexpoint refill package.

With enough practice with fractions I might get as good as I was in the sixth grade.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.

Ordered a Papago 770 multi-sport GPS watch with heart rate monitor today. Wanted something that I could use to track the progress for running, hiking and cycling and it seems to have very good (but limited) reviews.

The last thing I got:

3M Half Facepiece Reusable Respirator 7502/37082(AAD), Respiratory Protection, Medium: Scba Safety Respirators: Industrial & Scientific

Along with accompanying filters.

I believe in getting the right tool for the job, as in the daily chore of scooping cat litter
