Barracuda Fuels

While I was out doing my walk yesterday, I noticed a new fuel truck in the neighborhood. The truck was black and called Barracuda
 Fuels. Never seem it before. Years ago, they had a number of small companies floating around. But over the years they kept getting bought out. I think mine had three different owners. 

When I first came here, I dealt with Shell. I guess they came with the house. Then I figured out that every tank of oil cost me $50.00 more than with a no-name company. So, I switched. People would say, "Oh, you're getting cheap oil, junk oil etc." But. here's the thing. All the oil here comes from the same pump. Same oil, the only difference is price.

Any House is a Mansion

 I just finished reading the book "The Unforgiven" This is not the one with Clint Eastwood. That was "Unforgiven". This one stared Burt Lancaster. Most of the story centers around a soddy in Texas. I know what a soddy is, but I decided to look up some photos. One of them got my attention. It's not the child in the doorway but the flowers planted on each side of the door. You have to admit that this a pretty sad looking home. Small, not much room. One window at the back, maybe the sides. Even so, the woman of the house thinks enough of it to try and give it some beauty by planting flowering bushes at the front.

My Cousin

Patrick N Patti Smith

Yes I have all the vaccines and boosters. Can't wait to get the bivalent booster. Maybe in January. Exciting times. Good time in history to be alive.
