A buck-fitty? How about $1.49?

December 23, 2008 - 6:33 PM

Mama is about to make good on her deal...

With final cans, bottles and plastics being returned today, Max made it to 77 gallons!  Woo-hoo!!!  77 gallons will take him from the middle of MO to the Gulf of Mexico (and then back to the middle of MO)!

Look at those dance moves!  He couldn't have done it without so many of you giving of your empties and piggy banks!  Thank you so much from the bottom of Max's Big Heart!

We checked on Gas Buddy and in MO today gas was $1.49.  I think as soon as he sees signs anywhere saying a buck-fitty he will be bouncing out of his seat.  I at first was praying for it in IC of a buck-fitty but now I am praying for MO to do the job! 

AHHHHHHH!!!!  We're going to the sea!  (I'll write another blog soon to tell you the who's-it's and where's-it's.  AND!  We did save up all our funds and have used part already for a deposit on a place located RIGHT ON THE SEA!)

Response to A buck-fitty? How about

    Just wanted to say that when we were in MO this weekend we got gas for $1.38! This was in KC and Neosho. If you need a place to stay, I've got all kinds of relatives that would be glad to have you!
