Things I Know

To answer my own question about Democratic presidential primaries, Tulsi Gabbard has suspended her campaign too.

I like Toro lawnmowers.  The one I have now isn’t the only one I’ve ever owned.  But the one I have now has a gas cap with large protuberances around its edges.  These bumps catch on low-lying shrubs and work the gas cap off.  When that happened at the end of last mowing season, I lost the cap.  Mowing season fast approaches.  Did you know that the parts list you can find in the owner’s manual or online for my Toro lawnmower doesn’t contain a list of engine parts?  I didn’t either, but I do now.  In normal times, I would load the mower in my truck and run it over to the mower dealer for a new gas cap.  But these are COVID times.  And the listing for caps on Amazon doesn’t contain enough information to decide which one to buy.  The picture could show whether the cap fits a tank neck with inside or outside threads.  But it doesn’t.  The picture of the cap could show whether it has inside or outside threads and say what size tank neck it fits, but that’s not happening either.   I guess it’s time for some foil and a rubber band.

I scored some toilet paper this morning.  I only bought one pack.  If I hadn’t gotten it, I was going to head over to Home Depot to see if they had any extra-fine sandpaper.

I often listen to the British talk radio station LBC over the internet.  In the pre-dawn hours, today, presenter Steve Allen told the following joke.  I didn’t get all the details, because I was falling asleep so the names and dates may not be completely accurate, but it won’t spoil the story.

On a cool spring evening in June 2047, James was sitting in his favorite chair, reading.  He felt the urge to go to the bathroom, so he did.  When finishing his business, he finally used the last few sheets of toilet paper his grandparents had purchased in 2020.

Knock off the panic buying, people!
