Cards and Copters . . .

After a quiet morning I headed out about 1pm for some work and errands. Jan was getting picked up here at the rig by Piper so they could spend the afternoon together, and then later we would meet them for supper, along with Chris and Linda.

My first stop was a client’s office to fix a couple of problems and install two new printers for him. I also got paid, so my next stop was at the bank. Always nice.

Next up was Home Depot for some toggle bolts. I’m trying to reinstall one of the grab handles on the inside of our door, The old bolts had pulled out and I’m trying to make a stronger mount.

I also stopped at a nearby auto parts store to get a couple of #194 light bulbs to replace the bad ones under our steps. They come on when the steps are extended to light the ground under the door to make it easier to see at night.

It was getting close to the time I was supposed to meet everyone for dinner, so I made a quick stop at Brandi’s to get the mail and pick up the package that contained my replacement Globe Helicopter. Unfortunately it will probably be a couple of days before I can get a chance to try it.


I got to La Brisa about 5, with Chris and Linda arriving a few minutes later. But Jan and Piper were having so much fun with their mani-pedi’s that they didn’t show up until a little before 6.

That’s just rude! LOL

After a nice dinner together, we all split up for a while. Piper headed out to see some friends, Chris and Linda to the phone store, with Jan and I stopping off at a beauty supply store to pick up  some products recommended by the nail place.

Then after picking up some lottery tickets, we drove over to Chris’ to drop off and set up another computer. But didn’t get far when I found out he didn’t have a working keyboard. So I’ll have to come back later to finish setting it up.

On another note, when I was at the doctor’s office on Monday, I picked up one of these cards from a display at the office window.

Pharmacy Card

I’d seen ones like it before and didn’t think much about it, but since it was being given out by the doctor, I thought I’d give it a try.

So when I went by Sam’s to pick up Jan’s prescriptions, I handed it the clerk and got a real surprise. Most of Jan’s drugs are of the $4 variety, but her migraine medicine is a little more pricey. And boy did the card work on that one.

Her migraine medicine is normally $86 for 10 tablets, but the card knocked that down to $34. Not bad for a free card.

On a final note, kudos to Amazon for great customer service. I dropped off my defective Globe Helicopter this afternoon at a UPS shipper to return it to Amazon, and this evening I got an email saying they were already issuing my credit.

Don’t know how they did it that fast, but great service, al always.

  1. I suspect Amazon got an email that you had actually shipped the return item, so that was good enough to start the credit process. I had the same thing happen last year.
