They say the first step of a 12 step program to heal thyself is that we admitted we were powerless over using to much gas—that our lives had become unmanageable.I am there. OK it’s still manageable, but Jesus Christ… OK wait, that’s part of the second step. (Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.)
Anyway. Christ, I drive a Suburban and a pick up truck thousands of miles a year to boat shows and my boat has a Lincoln 430 in it . Riding lawn mowers, Power trimmers, A 1958 truck, and a vintage Ford Tractor.. DEAR GOD! With gas at 4.20 a gallon, I find myself driving on fumes to get to a gas station in the country to save 50 cents on a gallon of …the sweet nectar of combustion.. mmmmmmm Full take and empty bladder, is there any better feeling.. Anyway.. I realized last night driving to the river after another 25 gallon binge fill up that I have a problem. Am I alone? Should we have a support group? I will start.. It’s Saturday morning.. I need gas for my lawn mower.. I am afraid that I will fill three 5 gallon jugs in stead of the just one that I will need..should I….
