Out and about Friday

By , May 30, 2008 9:25 pm

Left out this morning about 9:30 and made a stop at the post office in Alexandria so Cat could ship some E-Bay stuff out. From there headed to Poor Man’s Trade Day in Gadsden. Walked about half way around the place, noticed the folks with the string were there, then walked on around to see what else was there today, and stopped to look at a couple of cast metal horses some folks had. They looked up and told us that if we wanted it that a whole pile of stuff they had there was free, just haul it off. As I have a hard time walking away from free stuff, I went and got the truck and loaded it up. Then we bought the horses. πŸ˜‰ From there walked around a bit more and then went back to the folks that had the string. Haggled with them back and forth for some time and ended up getting it all (around 750 rolls and skeins) at a good price. Afterwards talked to them for a bit and then as most of the other folks were closing up we left. Went to Goodwill and got a few books and some cross stitch kits that we found there. Then went to Apple A Day and got more Ribose and some fruit spritzers and then went east on 411 to the North Gadsden Park and ate lunch. Next was back west on 411 to Rainbow City and American Thrift Store where we picked up a few more books and some more cross stitch kits and string. From there to Eagle Rock Thrift Store where we got MANY more books. They had put a new batch out and had a bunch of authors that we look for, which at 4/$1 paperbacks and 3/$1 hardbacks, were just too hard to pass up. Cat also found 16 cross stitch pattern books that we got for a $1. Ended up with over 80 paperbacks and 13 hardbacks. Headed west and got 4 or 5 at the Rainbow City Library book sale (like we hadn’t already gotten enough today…). Back to Alexandria and Food Land for bread and sodas (for Cat) and then to my folks house to pick up a rocking chair (and repack the truck) and eat supper. Then home. Been a long and somewhat pleasant day. For now am going to go and sort some books and then hit the sack. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. Guess we will see when it gets here. Till then… πŸ˜‰

Cream :: a modern configuration of the Vim text editor

Cream : : a modern configuration of the Vim text editor

I’ve used Cream before but in one of the many hard drive crashes I’ve experienced it got lost and I just found it again. Installed it and it makes Vi (gVim actually) so much more user friendly. And actually usable for the average computer user. Good Stuff!
