Gave Tweety Birds to My Neighbor

There is an old lady in my neighborhood. She's 84 years old.  She used to carry a big fuzzy Tweety Bird key chain.

I say "Hi" whenever I see her.  
Her tweety bird was getting dirty.

Then, one day, she stopped carrying her Tweety Bird.  She lost the bird, she said.

So I went online and ordered two Tweety Key-chains. 

Fuzzy Tweety Bird Keychain

 

After a few weeks, I saw the old lady getting in to her house.

I grabbed my Tweeties from back seat of my car and ran after her.

I had to be very careful not to scare her. She might think I was a criminal or something, so..

I said "hi" and gave her the tweety key-chain. 

She was very happy.  She gave me a big hug.  She was saying "Thank you, thank you... how sweet.. "  She was almost crying.

Good time.

Westlake Village Costco

* Today's Costco shopping: 11th time this year, 1st time this month

I was looking for The Chocolates of the World and the new Kirkland Signature's Primium Nissin Cup Noodles (not to be confused with regular Cup Noodles they usually sell).  But I couldn't find any. Frown

So I ate a hot-dog and came back home. 

ZZzzz

Costco Shopper Booted After 14th Free Cracker

Here is a funny & interesting story.

Costco management took the unprecedented step of removing a shopper from its Oakland, California store for abusing its free sample program. Bill Wentworth of San Jose, CA was forcibly ushered to the exit after management spotted him eating a 14th lobster dip cracker.
.
Wentworth utilized crude props to dupe unsuspecting Costco workers, such as fake beards, mirrored sunglasses, and wheelchairs. He also spoke to workers using fake foreign accents....
 

The story doesn't stop there.
More embarrassing story continues at  GlossyNews Article

* How do they know he had 14 crackers, not 13 or 15?  Does that mean Costco is actively watching free sample tables?

Costco Shopping - February 28, under $100 again

* Today's Costco shopping: 10th time this year, 4th time this month

Again, I managed to keep it under $100.00.

This is the second time I'm buying Wings of Fire & M&M in one month.  I am going crazy on these bad food.  This is not good.  I should make them last more than 2 month.

My last jumbo shrimps lasted me almost 5 months.  They are special treat.  Sometimes I chop them up in pasta.

My craving for chocolate is not going away. I need to watch my chocolate intake.  My waist is definitely wider than 6 months ago.  I know I will lose the size.  Losing size is very difficult, but I just do it anyway.  It's either working hard to move up or stay at the bottom.  That's life.

Anyway, I spent under $100.00

Get this - I spent only $25.00 on Gas in February.  And my gas tank is almost full right now.

Power Outage

We had 2 planned power outages scheduled.  Tonight was the first planned power outage.  Next power outage is coming up next Sunday.

Power was shut off Sunday night 10:30pm and came back on 7am Monday morning.

Ideally I should have gone to sleep during that hours.  But I was wide awake until 2am.  So I set on my bed and read a book.

The whole world was dark and quiet.

I was chilling on my Costco mattress, between Costco sheets, and under the Costco comforter.  The light was from Costco as well.

Costco Shopping - February 19, 2009, under $100.00

* Today's Costco shopping: 9th time this year, 3nd time this month

I just bought normal stuff.  I didn't get anything special.  I arrived at Costco around 8:10pm, so I didn't have much time to relax in there.  There was absolutely no line at the gas pump.  I like coming to Costco late at this hour.  It messes up my dinner schedule, but it's OK.

After hot dog and gas, I still spent less than $100.00. Ha...

Cashew chicken & beef ribs will be my weekend treat. 

Check out that wicked huge bag of toilet papers.  It's a thousand wipes in one.

Sir Bernard Ashley dies on Valentine's Day

Bernard Ashley was a founder of Laura Ashley 

I guess a lot of people know the name in the US.  But, I would have never known about Laura Ashley if it wasn't for Costco. 

I bought a goose down comforter from Costco last year as a part of "Shopping for a Bed" project.  My new comforter was from Laura Ashley.

I didn't know my comforter was British.  I just knew my comforter was from Costco.

Anyway, he died on Valentine's day. 
Somehow it sounds right.

###

Sir Bernard Ashley (August 11, 1926 - February 14, 2009) was a Welsh businessman and engineer. He was the widower of Laura Ashley, and was her business partner from the founding of their fashion-textiles-centred business.

Tweety Key-Chain

* 13th package this year.

There is an old lady in my neighborhood. She's a lot older than my mother.  She used to carry a big fuzzy Tweety Bird key chain.

I say "Hi" whenever I see her.  
Her tweety bird was getting dirty.

Then, one day, she stopped carrying her Tweety Bird.  She lost the bird, she said.

So I went online and ordered a fuzzy Tweety Key-chain.  Fuzzy Tweety is in the mail.  This key-chain is something extra I am going to give her.

I hope I will give them to her on Valentine's day, but I don't think the Fuzzy one will make it on time.  Mm.. It's OK.
