Went Christmas Shopping Yesterday

The poverty is pretty severe;  traffic jams near every shopping center in West Boise.   My wife came up with a scheme for reducing the problem: You only get to shop one day a week based on the first letter of your last name.  This reduces the size of the traffic jams and crowds in stores. Are you old enough to remember odd/even gasoline station days in the 1970s?

I have a simpler solution: Christmas every month!


  1. I thought up a great solution for reducing traffic problems - everyone else can take the bus.

  2. Hell yes, I remember that stupid idiocy.
    It helped that my girlfriend was a manager at a service station.
    The fact that I was driving a Mustang that only got about 5mpg around town didn't.
    Hey, it got about 10-12 on the highway!
    But, it had to have the best gas, if I wanted to put the boot to it.
    However, I drove it 'crosscountry on regular gas. (high compression with a radical cam, and 4.11 gears: last year of factory hotrods, 1971)
    Hi-test was $2/gal.

    In retrospect, I should have just run the cheap gas all the time.
