They have NO Sales Tax and all their Gas Stations are FULL SERVICE !! Makes you wonder why other States/Provinces have to charge so much in taxes !! In Canada we pay 12% on every purchase. Disgusting !! So when I’m travelling through here I make sure I get everything done while I’m here. Sure makes a difference on a large purchase.
I took advantage of this by getting the RV engine oil changed and the oil/filter changed on the generator. I also got all oils changed on the Harley. YUP, That was an expensive day.
And despite the fact that I’ve been up and down this route a few times now already, it still startles me when an attendant comes to the door ready to pump my gas. LOVE the fact that I don’t have to get out of my rig.
On another subject is EAR PLUGS. I learned very early in the game that I needed ear plugs. You see when I was a young lass I could sleep through a storm. My Mother was always amazed. But now I’ve become very noise sensitive and the least noise keeps me awake. As you know when I travel from Point A to Point B I pull into Walmarts or the big Truck Stops. Walmarts are fine but those Truck Stops are very loud !! Hence I need ear plugs. The other night I had them in and I must have taken them out in my sleep as I found one in the bed and the other on the floor the following morning. The other night I needed the ear plugs and for the life of me I could only find one. hmmmm I searched and searched ! On the bed – by the sides of the bed – in the drawer….. The other one was no-where to be found ?? Oh well I figured, I’ll likely find it the next time I change the sheets. And in the meantime next time I’m at Wally’s I’ll simply get another pair.
The next morning Bennie was outside doing his morning ‘business’. I noticed (as only a Mom would) that ‘something’ was coming out……well, let’s just say it wasn’t the ‘colour’ it should be. I was immediately worried as he had gotten into something the previous day while we were walking along the river. Was this blood !!?? Upon closer examination (as only a Mom would do), I saw that it was THE EAR PLUG !! I considered taking a pic for the Blog, but decided to spare you guys !! LOL I even considered………….oh nevermind…….
Mystery of the missing ear plug solved. I did buy a whole package of NEW ear plugs the next time I was at Wally’s.
