One Wrong Price:
  1. LifeSpan TR3000i folding treadmill (MA)
  2. LG ultra-capacity washer & dryer w/2 pedestal drawers (RR)
  3. Air hockey table w/accessories (RR)

It's not the washer & dryer. That price is fine. I'm a bit leery of the treadmill being such a nice round number though...

Marcus made his bid thusly: "Row, row, row your boat, 600 down the stream!" Gotta admit, that's different. ^^;

Now....or Then, which with Bullseye is one of our only two remaining unbeatens this season:
Trip to Bella Bella, BC (6n, Mothership Adventures, daily gourmet meals, guided kayaking adventures; $11,109; MA)

  • SOS scouring pads (18 ct)
  • Marie Callender's chicken pot pie
  • Pam olive oil cooking spray
  • Solo Squared plastic plates (15)
  • C&H pure cane brown sugar (1 lb)
  • Snyder's of Hanover sourdough hard pretzels (12.5 oz)

No obvious anachronisms (maybe the olive-oil Pam, but that's all)... this could be tricky, but I've thought that before about this game and it's still turned out okay. Fingers crossed.

That was scary for a little bit, but it all worked out in the end... and we'll still have at least one goose egg in the "L" column come Friday-stats time. Can't complain about that, now can we?

We go from a game that has yet to be lost in Season 43 to a game that's fallen on hard times recently. Could this be the day it climbs out of the doldrums?

...which doesn't happen! ^^; In fact, she was covered for as many as five misses above and beyond the one she did make! Of course, nobody knew that, which is why they play the game of course...

...and also back to normal on the Plinko board's stinginess, apparently. 8^/ (Reminder: $2,000 or more is good for yellow and one point, in my recordkeeping.)

Marcus will be the first banishee of the week if he's not careful...
