The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Shakedown cruise

For the first time ever, I actually had to Shell out more than three bucks a gallon; admittedly, Gwendolyn prefers the high-test stuff, which is about twenty cents more than regular, but I was hoping I could still find something below the $3 threshold, inasmuch as $2.96 or thereabouts was the going rate for it this past weekend.

And later today, she'll polish off rather a lot of it, as we're headed up to Kansas City to make up the much-delayed last leg of WT06, which will be spent visiting my children and their children. I trust you will all behave yourselves in my absence.

Try the middle grade =if= you use a station that has three grades. Some just have two. Oftentimes the middle grade will suit just fine and it's priced between the two nicely as well.

Behave? You know us better than that.

Yes. Methinks your trust is misplaced.
