The latches cost $8, plus the $4 admission charge to enter the yard in the first place.
Then we went over to Twin City Surplus to buy tools. My auto toolkit has gone missing; in particular I didn't have the common metric sockets that the Astro uses. (If O'Reilly didn't loan parts, I would have been in bad shape trying to replace the alternator when it did the Halt-and-Catch-Fire thing three weeks ago.) Most new tool sets are cheap Chinese junk, says Lisa, so we hunted through the surplus shop for $1.50 worth of common sockets (11, 12, 14, and 16 mm) that my van uses.
After our tool-and-part shopping, we went to the Atlantis, where they had this autumnal display up, and had dinner at Cafe Alfresco. Lisa was particularly lucky at slots last night after dinner at the Black Bear Diner, winning $60 on slots (down almost $40, then hit a $100 jackpot), so she splurged on an extra barbecue chicken pizza to take with us home for her to eat on for the next couple of days. She also (once again) won enough money on slots to counteract my keno ticket, with a whopping 35 cents extra. We were well stocked at home for groceries, so there was no need to go to WinCo this weekend.
When we got home, Lisa vacuumed the Rolling Stone in preparation for me taking it down to the Bay Area tomorrow morning. I need to be up pretty early tomorrow in order to give me time to pack and get on the road with enough time to give me some time to visit my sister on the long drive down.
