    Yesterday was my wife's 50th so we went out to dinner with our kids to a small locally owned/operated Italian restaurant called Gocciolina.
    https://www.gocciolina.com/

    It was excellent.

    Just bought an outdoor cat house for a feral cat that's been hanging around my property for the last few months.

    Better question is how many hours can you go without making a purchase......for us....not many.

    I bought some 89 octane petrol last night. Is that relevant? :dunno

    Gearwise, I bought a Warmoth roasted swamp ash Strat body and '70s headstock neck with SS 6100 frets for my newest build. :beer

    Last major purchase... Two weeks ago, bought a new 2019 Honda HRV-EX. I've had about 10 Hondas since 1980. So far, I love this car!! First tank refill shows 33.1 MPG. Funny story - I told my wife I'd have to get a CRV because I needed a four door. We parked at the mall next to an HRV. She pointed out the hide-away rear doors and said - "The HRV is a 4 door!" Game changer - bought one a couple weeks later.

    Apple Car Play is really cool! Still figuring out all the bells and whistles.

    I had a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, 200,000 miles. I gave that to my son-in-law. This was an upgrade over his 2005 Civic Hybrid. About 3 years ago, my hybrid needed a new lithium battery - $3,000. Wiped out any savings I experienced in gas savings. No more hybrids for me. I was getting about 40 MPG in the last few years, so 33 in a non-Hybrid is fine by me.

    I bought Intway Card https://whatever-tech.com/best-wallet-tracker-reviews/. This is quite a useful thing for people who lose their wallet, or do not want to lose it. Not understand why so, but over the past year I lost 3 their purse. It pissed me off and I decided to buy this thing. In General, it transmits its location data to the phone. Also with this card you can find the phone by pressing the button( it is very convenient if you lost the phone somewhere in the apartment). Thing very convenient. Oh, yeah, it's also recording your itinerary. You can see where you went all day, or see where the thief went with this card.

    My last 'real' purchase was stuff for this 70 C10 Im building. It was a pretty big order. The engine (aluminum LS with a healthy turbo) and trans is around the corner and it will be the next thing I buy after I shoot the paint.

    AR 'Salt Flat' wheels (20's) lugs and tires
    Bumpers front and back
    Tailgate
    Rocker panels
    RH fender (inner and outter)
    5 bolt axles
    grille
    EC 4/6 drop suspension components
    disc brake conversion, 5 lug hubs
    Underbed fuel tank and Russell -6 line


    As you may guess restoring classic vehicles is a bottomless pit for you to throw money into and thrown in with the knowledge that you will NEVER get it back.

    Headrush Gigboard. Bought it to replace a Boss 001 that I use on my desk in my apartment through headphones. It was a LOT of $ for a digital product but I am really impressed with build, user interface and most importantly, sound. I have even used it through the PA in place of my princeton. I can have a personal monitor at any level that I want and the Band leader said that she liked the sound.

    Let's see...
    Music gear - Blues Driver off CL. Seems to be a decent clean boost, I haven't used it much yet but I did use it on my acoustic board for a clean solo boost - level up, gain down. Seemed to work well enough and less of a tonal change than the tube screamer. Next up might be a Sensei Jr.

    Gas power washer. Works great and I use it to clean my most recent personal substantial purchase from this spring...

    ...'17 KTM 300 XC-w. Best off-road bike you can get. Amazing machine.
