Very productive two days  
What a great day today has been. We took a large load of garbage to the dump. After that we had a nice IHOP breakfast. Then we headed off to the warehouse to pick up the chairs I had ordered. Here are some pics.

Here is the huge warehouse for Rooms To Go. I've never been in such a huge one. It was several blocks in many directions.

Our chairs were the furthest ones by the wall. Four pretty blue leather ones.

And here they are. They're so pretty. I'm very glad I bought these. I had not seen them in person. Saw them online and in the store they only had a yellow one. I'm glad this is such a nice blue shade.

Here Chris loads one into his truck. I'm very happy with these. They are great.

And my Jeep at Gandy Beach. Notice it now says Eep. When I was removing the decals I liked that as that is what budgies say. So I decided to leave it like that for now. I had so much fun this day. I did the walk around and sent the videos to Blacked Out Jeep Wrangler. I'm curious how he will edit it all together if he puts it on his channel. Yesterday I may have over done it in the fun department. So I got ready that morning and tackled driving the interstate through downtown to get to this bridge. I got there early on a week day so I had the beach nearly to myself for a few minutes. It was a beautiful day. Then I went home after taking some pics and realized I didn't film all the info I needed. So I went to Colt Creek and finished there. And on the way home I stopped at Advanced Auto Parts and picked up some tire cleaner. But I got the wrong kind. I was going to get one cleaner and one shine. But I bought two cleaners on accident. Didn't find out til today. DARN! I still need to get the tire shine. So yesterday was a crazy but fun day with all the driving and walking around in the heat.

Today after getting the chairs we fixed up the living room a bit more and Chris brought in our old couch that was in the garage. Now my goal is to empty the side of the garage to the point I can get my Jeep in there. So I need to take lots of stuff to donations again. I'm guessing since it's way less stuff it shouldn't be too hard. Tomorrow I go in for my second oil change too. I need them to look at my back driver tire because that one keeps going flat when the weather changes. Way too many times I've had to fill it and I'm sick of it going flat on me.

I also helped Chris and washed his truck. It's been such an amazing and productive day. He ordered the first DVD set of the cartoon Challenge of the Super Friends. Gosh I loved that show and it's been fun watching that. We're also watching The Real Ghostbusters as there are 100 eps on Netflix right now. I watched every ep growing up. I used to watch tons of cartoons when I was a kid. I think I'm getting close to starting my new drawing of Scary Fear. Very soon that can happen. Perhaps I can even start to draw it tomorrow while I wait for my Jeep to be serviced.

And I'm feeling better physically. I have way less pain. Am starting to wear more normal clothes again and seem to be able to eat small amounts of red meat again. I think I can slowly get back onto that. I take bites of Chris's food and don't get tummy aches anymore. Even my road trip to Canada is looking possible now. I'm having the jeep checked tomorrow to see if it is healthy for a massive trip like that. I may be meeting several friends this year after all. I need to make plans for this at the start of June.

Oh and forgot to mention. I ordered the Gladiator Grille for my Jeep. It looks like this.
I can't wait to get it. I think it will go great with the temporary Fear theme. But I need to find somewhere to get it painted in glossy black to match.

Very pretty chairs. And I hope, very comfy, too!

Great photo of your Eep :)

That grill looks nice and scary.

I'm glad you got so much done today and I'm jealous of your heat, but it's your turn now.

I'm so glad you're so much better and a trip to Canada sounds awesome! (I have a brother who lives there.)

They are dinning chairs and they are comfortable enough to eat on. I am happy with them.

Haha thanks. Glad you like the Eep.

It should arrive tomorrow. I can't wait.

It's definitely getting hot now.

The trip to Canada seems more and more promising now.

I like those blue chairs.

I think "eep" is funny as a name for your Jeep.

Thanks. I am very happy with the colors.

I guess Eep is the nick name since his name is Alan.

It was huge. I've never seen a warehouse that big. So neat. Ha glad you like the changes to the eep.
I grew up during that time period and I remember the "Ghostbusters" that came out first. I was so excited about it and then the show was stupid as it wasn't the four guys we all know. WTF? They had a stupid car and a gorilla. I was so mad they'd done that and was glad they got in trouble. So a shame the show had to be called REAL Ghostbusters. That's sad.
I miss Scary Fear too. Your comment finally motivated me to stop watching youtube during my free time and I've started the drawing for the hood. Watch for another post because I'm going to ask for some advice on it.
