    Next time for you need a fill up cruise over to KY where premium gas is $1.49 at Sam's Club today.
    It's $1.37 at Sam's Club in Oklahoma City, with regular unleaded going for $0.99. Great for the consumer today, but not so great for the state in the future as a good part of the state revenue comes from oil.

    Adjusted for inflation gasoline is cheaper there today than it has ever been.

      Think about that for a minute. A gallon of gas is cheaper than a 16oz bottle of water at the gas station!

          WHOA...never would have guessed it would go that low. All our gas comes by pipeline from either Cal or TX...maybe that's a factor with our prices.


          These are the prices I found in OK.

            Needed to go to the church today to get a deposit ready for the bank. Our members have been faithful sending in their offerings during this time when we have been having church on line. Since I have officially been sent home from my part time job because of my age and risk, I decided to take the Thunderbird since I was getting a chance to get out anyway. As you can see from the picture it was unusually warm today, so I dropped the top and made a quick run up along side the Illinois River to check out the dogwoods in bloom. The trip was a great distraction and since I stayed moving at a pretty good clip on the curvy road, I didn't end up with a very thick layer of pollen on the car.

            Jim, your Gasbuddy post surprised me. Westville is a very small town only about 30 miles from us. Their gas prices are over 40 cents a gallon less than ours! Our town is usually higher than the surrounding towns, but not by that much - bummer.

              It is True. I learned something new today. I never knew there was an Illinois River in Oklahoma. Of course, it is not the same one that is in the state of Illinois. It is in Tahlequah! Glad I didn't bet with Paul that the Illinois river didn't flow through his state, right through his city. And for a while I thought Paul was on a road trip!

              Did a little more research and found out that the Illini Tribe survivors after the 1700s settled again in Kansas and Oklahoma and that probably is the explanation for the Illinois River name. The things they don't teach in school so we are "correctly" politicized. My dad was right, Swedish history was more comprehensive regarding the history of the U.S.

                Pam and I have been using online worshipping since her cancer diagnosis and my respiratory problems have made it difficult to personally attend. We were able to set up an automatic withdrawal from our checking account to the church. It has worked like a charm. If your church can offer this, I would highly recommend it.

                Wishing you, Rosetta, and your entire family the happiest of Easters.

                  That's a good idea, Gene. Some folks would likely benefit from that option. Since I have still been working part time, I never know one month to the next what we'll be giving, so an automatic withdrawal would get the job fully done for us, but I know there are others that might really like it.

                  Hope you, Pam , and the rest of your family have a blessed Easter as well. It may be different this year, but it doesn't change why we celebrate.

                    Guess I will take the Bird out to enjoy cruising this morning. Been setting in the garage for a couple weeks. Go to my PO Box and check my mail and do whatever day before Easter. Hope all is well with yall here on TBird nest. Let us count our blessings. This stay at home stuff could be a lot worse.

                      Put a coat of Turtle wax on the grill, & because I have the original egg-crate grill (like most everyone) it was a time-consuming job. But you already know that. I timed the job, start to finish: 4 bottles of beer. I waxed the wheels last week & someday soon I'll get up enough what-ever to tackle waxing the whole body. Stay-at-home orders have an advantage. Stay home. Stay safe. Stay busy. ---Will

                        Hey Will,

                        I have had great success with microfiber gloves when working on grill waxing. Got them from Autogeek.com
