One ton of gravel !!

East Texas Asphalt gave me (by their estimate) two thousand pounds of pea gravel. When I arrived… an employee called another employee and said “I have a young lady here that needs gravel.”  I laughed and told him the “young lady” is looking at her eighty-third birthday. ‘Twas free with best wishes for a happy birthday!! ~~ Twenty-six miles round trip (because I got lost) but only seven miles from home. ~~ Lowe’s has sixty pound bags for $6.26. ~~ Simple arithmetic: Two thousand pounds would be approximately thirty-three bags for an estimated cost of $206.00 plus tax. Nice birthday present!!
