Okay, for those who have read 101 Uses For Napalm #2, I have a solution. (Well, click on the dang link and read it.)

The batteries in my precision tire gauge went belly-up the other day. Long shot, but looked at Kroger’s and Lowe’s where we had groceries and Lowe’s thingies to buy – no luck.

I have been procrastinating a Wally-World trip, as the latest store remodeling has left a nightmarish labyrinth where nothing  appears where it should.  As a side note – the last trip there was also for some small batteries – and I went to 4 different locations in the store where there were shelves of batteries. I finally gave up and asked. You guessed it – “What’s it for?”

I was then directed to a fifth location, where I did find the size battery I wanted.  I think I’ll plan a special trip to count the number of locations where Wal-Mart has batteries. But in the mean time, I did a quick “google” to ascertain the air gauge batteries were not some rare item that could only be obtained with a security clearance and  NASA purchase order. Google directed me to Battery Bob’s where I found a two page list of the electronic toys that these same batteries operate.

Now I can’t wait for the clerk to ask me “What’s it for?”

In response I could pull out the following list:
