Eureka ...

Costco is too far away, in miles per gallon terms, and Sam's Club is even farther away. The more conveniently located BJ's Wholesale Club is where we go to big box shop and that's also where Big Ed and I found a replacement clock for J's bedside table. Among other bells and whistles, it has a battery back-up (duh). It also has a smaller footprint than the one we returned to Best Buy.

I guess we will discover if the new clock can withstand power surges. J and I really liked the clock he used to have. It was a gift from Zeta and M. However, when lightning struck in our neighborhood, the clock succumbed to the surge. Unfortunately, it was not plugged into a power strip.

There, now you have it. My room is safe. For the time being anyway.

RANGER said...

Ah, but you have diet sodas in your refrigerator ...

Zeta said...

Ok I'm on my way. Diet sodas good. Cold too.

Big Ed said...

Ok, ok, ok, You all can have 'em. I won't be needing them for the rest of the week.

Are there any Snicker bars or M & M packs available at Chez Ed?

RANGER said...

Sadly, no goodies 'cept sodas, at present. We can, however, be patient ... aarrrr, me hearties!

Zeta said...

Hum, Ranger did you look under his bed? You never know. M & M's peanut are my favorite. Snickers are also one of my favorites. Did Biged buy food for his trip? We could do some help-e-self-e shopping from his grocery bags. Shoot, lets just take the entire Publix grocery goodies with us. Yeah, that will work just fine. We can leave the receipt on his desk so he can still have records of his expenses.

Hey, Zeta - plan on e-sharing, too - would you? Yum. Nom-nom-nom. Appreciate it!

Zeta said...

Sure, why not, Biged is not reading this. Oh wait, he might read this before he goes on his trip. He has the king size bags of candy so there is enough to share.
