Well, I looked into getting a dumpster. Last time I rented one was five years ago and it was a little over $400. It is now nearly $1000 for the same dumpster. It’s looking like a trailer and my manual labor is what is going to happen.
Oh well. It’ll be great exercise and I’ll still be getting rid of that unsightly pile of junk I piled up next to the garage. That will be first to go. That’ll take a trailer load, then there’s probably another few loads in various places that need cleaned out. I can haul stuff in the truck at the same time and save trips.
I stopped for a splurge today.
What a selection of donuts at Hurts Donuts! They have cinnamon rolls the size of a cantaloupe. There’s something for everyone in the cases. They have ice cream and drinks as well. It’s a fun place to stop for something a bit different.
They did have unique donuts; very reminiscent of Voodoo Donuts in Portland, OR. They had the infamous Maple Bacon Bar, a frosted one topped with Fruity Pebbles, and many other varieties.
The inside of the place is extremely colorful and fun to look at with bright colors everywhere. The donuts, however, are not cheap. I bought a strawberry cheesecake raised donut, a red velvet with cream cheese icing, and one called a “Homer”, which was a raised donut with pink icing & sprinkles (just like the movie poster). I believe it was $18 w/tax or so for three of these big gourmet donuts.
A bit spendy but it’s okay to go for it every now and then for the novelty and the selection. The donuts were not light and/or fluffy. Even the raised donuts were kind of dense. Don’t get me wrong…they tasted great but I like my donuts more airy. For me it was the flavor and not the actual donuts.
I stopped to look at a few trailers today. It really helped me get an idea of some of the ones I have looked at online, like the size of the trailers as opposed to the Scotty, which was a 15’.
One I looked at was what might be considered an “entry-level” but honestly it had a very usable setup. A few feet longer that my old one, this one had a Murphy bed that folds down over the couch, a dinette that converts to a bed, kitchen, and a shower separate from the toilet (a dry bath). plus, it was several hundred pounds lighter than my old one.
I’m not going to rush into anything but I’d like to get it taken care of soon.
That’s it for today. Thanks for reading!
