We decided to head for Gardnerville to grab some groceries at Walmart. Next stop was Raley's for prescriptions. We thought that if we were going to buy a side by side we would trade in my quad. It's the 700 Yamaha KFX. It's still a nice ride but figured we didn't need them all. The plastic needs replacing as it got wrecked several years ago. Doesn't deter it from being a fine riding ATV. Anyway, we headed for Reno and our safe deposit box there. Decided not to trade the bike in as he said because it's old they could only offer $500.00. When I told Russell he said Good! because Aaron loves that thing! So we're keeping it.
By the time that was done it was close to 1300. I did make lunch but Ken said how about Chinese? We haven't had Chinese since Jan or February at least. We went by our favorite place in Carson City but they're still only doing take out so we left.
Betsy's Big Kitchen was open so we had dinner there. Delicious and we had our favorite waitress, Lisa. She's not happy about the mask wearing, but is happy to be back at work.
All day I had been texting back and forth with our son, Russell. Our researcher for the side by side. I called a place in Las Vegas and we were going to take a ride there. Ken and I had been thinking all day that it was Wednesday. We didn't have any plans until Saturday. Ok we can do this! Talked with Milo and the one we really liked had a deposit on it, but there was another we liked so ok let's go! In the end he sent us a cost sheet and it was ridiculous the fees they charge tacked on another $3000.00 to the price. Told him we weren't happy with that and made an offer. Guess he didn't like it because I haven't heard back. Oh well. The nice thing there, is masks are required so I told him I'd be in touch when that was lifted. He then said we could do business in the warehouse without masks.
|This is one we really liked..but it had a deposit on it..|
After lunch we ran by Michael's Cycle Works. Thought we'd look at a model Russell had found. We found that a lot of them are alot bigger than we thought. We just want one that's small, even though the bigger ones are nice. We can always upgrade in a few years if we want. Talked with Vinny there, but nothing that we wanted or could afford. haha.
|Yeah these are really nice..not as expensive as you would|
think looking at them..but too big
|Love this one!|
Got home, groceries unloaded and it was clouding up again. Yay! More thunder and lightening so we took our drinks to the back porch as with the wind we were getting wet out front.
|Rain and thunder made for another nice evening|
|What a gorgeous sunset!|
This morning I showed Ken one side by side I found in Reno so I emailed Brandon for more information. He called this afternoon so we're going to run there in the am to look at it :) So we'll see, they only have 1 of this model and he said the same thing the other two guys we've talked with, that they are going fast and because the factories have been shut down for so long, they're hard to come by. I did ask if they required masks and he said they leave it up to customers. Nice, as of today it's supposed to be a requirement. Idiot Governor. Of course he "forgot" his when he was out to dinner with wifey and friends.UHHH..
|Not the best picture, but this is the one we're going to|
look at tomorrow..so we'll see...
It was a baking day for me today. Karen gave me some bananas that needed to be turned into bread and muffins. Made her some muffins and a bread. Ken got his muffins and bread and I made my flourless peanut butter muffins.
|I had to cut Karen's bread as the outside edges were hard..cooked in non stick pan|
Ken's all good..cooked in my mom's old meatloaf pyrex :)
I couldn't give Karen Ken's loaf as his has no sugar except the fruit
|Banana, apple, raisin, carrot oatmeal muffins..the dough looked so good!|
My flourless muffins in the back..I threw them together in my little
food processor and they are nice and light :)
Ken went to town to try to go by DMV but he said there's a lot of people waiting in the heat in the parking lot to get in. No appointments other than Reno, Carson City and Vegas. Too bad.
We're heading over to Karen's for a bit in a little while. It's Friday night Happy Hour! Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend.
