We had a little rain. Not much. Just overnight, steady showers. It was welcome, but not a lot of help with the drought. I don't know about the fires. I can't smell them outside but I haven't checked the fire maps on line yet.
I tried to buy a new computer during "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" but wasn't able to find one I wanted. There were several I tried to buy, but after tediously and laboriously filling out the orders, the screen would say "on line purchase out of stock" or something like that. Then it would suggest a different computer that cost three or four times as much. After trying Target, Best Buy, QVC and Evine , and having that happen each time, I just quit. I also noticed that most of the affordable computers that still used Windows 7 or 8 were "refurbished." Thanks, but no thanks. There's a reason they had enough of a particular model to make it cost effective to rebuild them. The reason is that they were garbage to start with.
My son is getting a root canal today. I will be glad when my daughter calls and tells me it is all over and went well. I hate that for him. But it has to be done or the result will be an abscess. Many times worse than getting it fixed before hand.
I bought two boxes of .45 ACP yesterday, for $14.95 each. FMJ, boxer primed, brass cased. They only had two boxes or I would have bought more. We went into town to go to the library after I finished spending the rest of the day getting the place ready for the rain. Could have spared myself the effort in the end.
Fiocchi makes the Perfecta line of pistol ammo. Good stuff, and very inexpensive.
