Last night we saw a community theater play called Rumors. It still had a lot of good laughs even though it was written in 1988.

Today our main outing was trying a South American restaurant we'd never been to before. The food was really good. We had empanadas and some kind of Chilean baked dish.

Moemg, sorry for your loss. It sounds like your Mom had a great run. As much as we feel we are prepared for these things because we can see them coming the finality of it all is still difficult. I'm sure you will miss her.

I just realized that there is something that I do regularly and enjoy that I have yet to share with the forum. A couple years ago I registered with Trivia Today. They send me an email link to a trivia question each day... many days two, on in the morning and one in the evening, that I answer and they keep track of my score for that month and cumulative.

I have found it fun. Just go to triviatoday.com

So sorry for your loss, Moemg. She sounds like she was a wonderful person. Not waking up from a nap, seems like a peaceful passing.

Thanks, pb4uski. I just joined and answered the first question correctly. I am not good at trivia. I would like to get better to be able to participate at the trivia nights at our local brew pub. I enjoy the craft beer.

Spent a couple of hours at the 54th Fiesta Jazz Band Festival, hosted by St Mary's University. Absolutely blown away by the talent of these teenage musicians...

I bought a new truck today. Actually, the dealer and I agreed on an out-the-door price and I ordered it and put down a deposit. Should be here in 6-8 weeks.

We've been on a major spending spree lately (two new vehicles and a winter condo in the last 5 months) but hopefully this is it and we'll be set for many years to come. But even after this spending spree our nestegg is still almost 10% above where it was when I retired 4 years ago.... thank you Mr. Market!!

Moemg, so sorry to learn of this. Even when you know it's coming that doesn't make it hurt any less.

2016 GMC Canyon SLE Crew Cab, 4WD with towing package and spray-on bedliner. White with cocoa dune interior. 4.8% off of MSRP, $0 doc fee and they gave me 170% of what the Toyota dealer would give me for my trade.

This morning, I did a brake job on the young wife's Mini. Then we went to lunch. I brewed 5 gallons of beer this afternoon.

Went to see "Eye in the Sky", which we both enjoyed.

I'm glad to hear Eye in the Sky was enjoyable. I wanted to go see that last night but could not convince DW so we ended up going to The Huntsman:Winter's War instead. It was ok.

Good luck. Buying a new car here, we agreed on an out-the-door price, but when I went to write the check, new and higher fees appeared. This is the third time it has happened to me here in S Fl, so I walked. They have yet to refund the deposit, even though they confirmed in writing it is fully refundable. Good thing it is CC, so I filed a dispute.

I've never had that happen... I'm surprised that they would be so stupid as to jeopardize a sale for what I assume is a trivial amount in the whole scheme of things. I would have done the same as you did.

Before that though, I probably would have written a check for the agreed purchase price (unsigned), put it in the manager's hands and then told him that it was his decision to honor the deal they made and I'll sign the check or I'll take the check back and they'll never see me again. Most dealers are so money hungry that they can't resist a check in hand but since you were there and ready to write the check for the purchase it is essentially the same thing.

I'm not concerned that the dealer I am buying from will try to double-cross me like what happened to you as this is a small town and word gets around... plus I bought a car that I also ordered from one of their sister dealerships a while ago and had no problems.
