I went to Sears

I dropped HannahC off at gymnastics and then went to Sears with MaxieC. The Mrs. was at the doctor for her icky female checkup.

We walked into the tool department, and MaxieC went nuts. He had to look at every single tool and go, "Wow! They have drills! Wow! They have leaf blowers! Wow! They have saws!" We walked all around. I looked at their tag list for dethatchers, and they didn't carry the one I was looking for. They had a different make for $30 more, but not the one I wanted.

So, when some dood came up to me to axe if I had found everything for which I was looking, I axed about it. He said, " probably gotta order that from the website. They gots a lotta stuff we can't get in the store."

Sensing he wasn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree, I yelled, "Obama!"

Hope. It's a funny thing, if I recall correctly.

I ended up buying a couple of extra blades for the mower, since I manage to spindle those things up all the time, and I never have spares. As I was checking out, the same dood said, "Did you find everything you were looking for?"

I said, "Yeah. Except for the dethatcher."

"Oh. Huh huh. I guess I asked you that already. Huh huh."


Then we went to Lowe's. They had a different brand, 42" instead of 48", but 25% cheaper than the Sears website. I got that. Haven't assembled it yet.
