I was regaling my sister Andrea about my exploits involved in getting the
brakes changed on the Marcusmobile. She said that it sounded like a red
letter day but I have no idea what that means.
I also do not know what it means to be dressed to the nines.

Anyway I had a Citibank credit card that gave money towards either the
purchase of a new car or the the repair of an existing car. My ambition is
to keep the Marcusmobile for a long long time as I do not want to spend
money on car payments. Lately my car has been giving me a high pitch noise
and it was a matter of time till you are grinding metal on metal which costs
WAY more. Took the car into Goodyear and walked back.
Got the oil changed, two new tires and the brakes done which worked out to
$390 (I had a fifty dollar coupon). So the rewards card will cover that
cost. What makes it AWESOME is that I was given a mail in rebate for $25 so
at the end of the day, I come out $25 ahead!

Speaking of $25 I went to Longs Drugs and used my $5 off a $25 to buy
various items including shampoo, liquid soap, oatmeal, green tea and garbage
bags. That store will be turning into a CVS which does not have those
coupons.

Read the New York Times and I liked the article about one guys pursuit of a
song. It took me almost a decade to find Billy Don't Be a Hero so I could
relate. Now I have three versions.
