If you make your own list, I'd love to see yours too!

I'll do just that! Ha-ha there's one thing that you won't see too much of in my collection, and that is scary movies, I don't like them, they freak me out too much and then I end up having nightmares at night. Trust me, I do like Halloween stuff and spooky things, but I don't do no thrasher, cutem up, scare the stuffing out of you movies, no way...

Grrr. I was sniped in the last 3 seconds with a bid that was $5 more than mine. Ebay stinks. LOL!

So 20 seconds later I ordered a new one from JEGS for not much more than the one I was bidding on. Now I get a warranty. That'll teach 'em.

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

With my aforementioned car part purchase, I finally feel like I'm getting back to the Camaro. I haven't felt well for the last few weeks, so it's good to be feeling back to normal and thinking about fun stuff...like a building street rod!

I'm going with Nancy & the kids to take Elizabeth to ballet this evening. Then we need to pickup a few things for Easter gifts (when did Easter turn into gift-giving, anyway?), maybe go out to eat.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Well then it's good I didn't list all of my scary movies, lol!

Something Wicked This Way Comes, Lady In White, Hallowe'en Party, It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Etc. are all great Fall/Halloween/mysteries/ghost stories that are seasonal for me. Love them!!! But not gory, etc.

Sounds like a great Friday night to me!! Does Elizabeth have class or a recital?
Have a wonderful time!!

I have never done it, obviously since I have an old phone, but seen it done many times. We will be paying for our lunch from groupon printed coupon and I have seen people upload the coupon on their smart phone and the cashier will scan it. I have seen it done at multiple stores as well. Really convenient!!! I'm a coupon junky and will have a lot of use with this.

I tend to "over analyze" buying anything, "Do I need it, will I use it a lot, is is the best possible deal"? And more questions! I will even hold off for a long time on something I want until I can get the best deal possible. I'm just not an impulsive shopper. That's just me though! Except for the Vita Mix, that dang thing doesn't seem to ever come down in price but I don't regret ever buying it! I can't claim that I am perfect at this!!! I just do the best I can that works for me. Wayne will just sometimes say, "If you want it, get it"! I just can't seem to do it! =)

It's been my experience that folks on Ebay usually run the bid on up so close to a new price, you might as well buy a new one. We'll see how this one goes. The bidding ends in 2.5 more hours.
I get so nervous bidding on Ebay in fear of losing what I want. The best way, wait until the last 30 seconds to make your bid. You usually win! I use to sell Ebay and people did that a lot. I haven't read further but hope you won!

I hope you all have a great day!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a beautiful day here in Central Indy with a high of 55 and mostly sunny. My big plan for today is to get a jump on my prep work for Easter. I have to make my normal macaroni salad so I want to get everything cut up for it today and I want to get my carrots peeled and cut up for the roasted carrots I'm going to make. Then I have a few errands to run. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
