The difference between 1/4 tank of gas and 1/2 tank of gas
Friday night we discussed going to see the aforementioned site that Pete visited on Thursday during an Embassy 'team-building' exercise. I mentioned that we were low on gas, that less than half a tank remained.
Rather than checking the gas gauge, Pete decided that was more than enough gas for a three hour round-trip. Yes, this is the same Pete who has more than once said, "Oh, there is plenty of gas!" only to have to walk 2 miles round-trip to the nearest station because there was NOT plenty of gas.
I digress, sorry! So, when he got out to the car around noon and discovered it was more like a quarter of a tank. He wanted to go ahead and charge the gas to his card with his fun money. Basically, it would cost $80, $50 more than we would pay at the base and SO not worth it. Yes, gas is about $8/gallon here.
So, we went to the base instead and took the kids bowling. The girls were extremely excited as for a while they were tied with Dad (his wrist was achy). Then towards the end, Caitlin rolled a strike! The girls were using bumpers, but on this roll the ball went straight down the alley and didn't touch either side. Oh, and I beat Pete by 25. I must say that felt especially nice considering the boy usually wins by at least 15.
