    About $900usd worth of clearance stuff today in Maine. All will be available on eBay and Amazon in the coming days.

    I just simply don't wear mine. Less chance of losing it.

    I don't wear mine either...I hate having anything on my skin like that, I don't even like clothes, especially socks.

    Yeah, I have been tire kicking 4 seaters for a while. This one is very quiet and has a nice short wheel base.
    Looking forward to getting out on it with the kids.

    Dollar-wise, not huge (only $1100), but business-wise a big purchase today.

    Picked up my first wholesale order direct from a distributor today. A few products that I was already carrying and a few that weren’t previously available on Amazon in either Canada or the US. All came back to our warehouse, listings were created as needed, got repackaged, and ship out to Amazon fulfillment centers tomorrow.

    And personally, $35 for an outstanding hole in the wall diner lunch for two, and $2 for a coffee at Tim’s.

    Finally got a phone that isn't from 2015 lol.

    Huawei P20 Pro - snagged it off Kijiji for $290 (he wanted $320 but I did the "...what will you take?" thing and it worked). Plan on getting the P30 Pro once they fall into the $450-550 range.

    I had a new orient ray 3 pepsi and enjoyed it. I traded it up for a bronze watch recently though and love it.

    I had my eye on the sea star and also contemplated a v8 but sometimes my watches get banged around at work so I wanted something that I wouldn’t care about too much once it starts to get dinged and worn. I have to say, for $300, the quality is far higher than I expected.

    I had to wind it this morning since I didn’t wear it yesterday because I needed to have 2 links taken out, so the power reserve ran empty lol

    I don’t like color faces but I’m a big fan of the blue

    Finally.....finally bought a truck.

    Retired my trusty 2000 GMC Sierra in January. Just been a yard truck the last 4 years and it finally was too far gone to fix.

    Replaced with a 2016 Ford F-150 FX4

    A beer.

    One of those days at work where you spend most of the day shaking your head. Jetted early, stopped at "The Ballard Beer Co." to chill for a bit.

    I just spent the last 2 hours watching a recording of a meeting I couldn’t make wondering who the fuck these people are I’m supposed to work with - it feels like grade school where you get forced to work on a project with a bunch of slackers who barely know how to spell their name.
