Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought an audio book: Cotillion by Georgette Heyer. It's a rather predictable love story but sometimes one needs a bit of perfect fictional world to gather the strength to fight in the imperfect real one.

All together, 21,50 euros. Not bad. Smilla is cheap but good food.
I don't doubt that, but I first read your post as you buying 'smelly' fish cat food

May be because I have these anti-plaque cat treats, you see, and they're fishy-smelly
Haha, well I think ALL cat food is smelly, at least all kibble. Raw food doesn't smell bad (except for lamb and rabbit mix) and wet food, well sometimes.

I think Smilla is a weird brand name too. Though Schmusy (another one they get here) is funnier.

Yes! This is why TNG is my favorite Trek and why I like suspense novels to have clear-cut good guys and bad guys. I don't need flawed heroes who are barely distinguishable from villains -- there are plenty of them in real life, thank you.

A blueberry muffin.

It was a birthday present for my mum

Well, it was the 'thing' she got with the card where I invited her to go to the café, where I bought the muffin, for lunch some day of her choosing...

Thanks TZ, it was a better gift than the other thing I got her; a cableeater™ -for the cables around dad's computer table in their living room, which really is a dad-gift -even if the cable-mess doesn't bother him

Got some pizza for dinner since I didn't really feel up to cooking anything.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today on the farmers market I bought some good bacon and loads of carrots, onions, garlic, root-parsley, celeriac, leeks, parsnips.... Going to make some good hearty winter-soup now that the winds have brought some Siberian temperatures to our parts (that's what the weather-frogs on TV say but in reality we only have an ordinary range of temperature for this place and time of year. What is it with people that appear on TV; why do they all exaggerate everything SO much?)

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

These 4 old Toro Whirlwind mowers:







Plus this NOS 1964 'Golden Whirlwind' engine....almost 50 years old and has never been used:



Plus the two parts that were needed to fix it (I only needed one crank starter, but there were two in the sale):





All to add to the growing collection that is starting to fill up my garage. I started mowing with one of these type of old Toros in 1975 when I was 8 years old and now I am having fun collecting and restoring them:
