Re: Sandi's 2021 Planned $avings Challenge

The Prius is back :D It looks great, runs great, it's almost like nothing happened to it. Almost, because the new headlight assemblies make it look even better than pre-collision. $avings Challenge update: we're at 54.25% of goal. Insert confetti thing (gif? meme? whatever) here.

Re: How Are You Combating The Rising Cost of Living

Re: are you still wearing you mask???

Oklahoma does not have a high percentage of fully vaxxed (we have a high percentage of anti-vax) and the Delta variant is causing infection #s to climb again (infection rate doubled in just 3 weeks).
