Our little corner of the BC wilderness hit 40C a few times over the summer, and one of our golf course neighbors asked us to water the newly planted shrubs in his yard. He's an oil guy, working in the Middle East, and wasn't here much this season.
But he returned to Canada bearing gifts from a glitzy mall in Dubai. How cute are these?
washable little coaster rugs and salt & pepper shakers
He also surprised us with $150 cash, which was overly generous and completely unexpected. I tossed that right into our Winter Golfing Fund.
Still on the subject of moolah, WTI crude futures dumped another 5% this morning, trading down to $38USD... a 6 ½ year low. Of course they did. I just started a position in Surge Energy on Friday at $2.27 :(
