Great shot of "the boys"

HOA and building maint projects always seem to get 11th hour attention. My daughter deals with that in her apt. Good to hear they are going to be replacing the driveways. Good call on waiting to get Katie's new car.

A throw pillow for the couch?

That bites. Civic duty and all, it's a bummer. Hope you don't get picked.

This is so awesome. Great job, Kevin. And that smile on Nathan's face says it all.

My guess from Instagram is a bar a soap from Bath and Body Works. Although now I'm venturing into the thought it could be a candy with an embossed R.

I did the Spotify Premium for a few months (wished I would have waited for the 125 star Starbucks deal - you can only do the special deal once) and it was nice, but then I went back to the free version once I started rebuilding my library in Google Play Music. Desktop clients (and the client on my Kindle Fire) allow playing track by track without being forced to shuffle. BabyMetal... now that I have the explanation, I might have to give this a listen. And that Elvis 45 is an awesome find, playable or not.

Nice find. I went for the first time in a few years (always something else going on). I got the 2016 Bongo comics (The Simpsons). Also picked up a couple issues of IDW Back To The Future (#2 and #5)

OMG, this week's is way tougher. My first guess is going to be chicken skin from BBQ wings.

Congrats on fishing a major project. I get the focus and metal funk. When you are concentrating that long on a project, coming down from it back to normal day to day is difficult. As Marie mentioned, time off could be a good thing.

I certainly like the fact that Kim shared her love of Nothing But Thieves. They played live here today in SLC, but I didn't have tickets (was still very tired from getting back from vacation last night)

I love Star Wars day. We were in the middle of Yucatan Mexico and saw so many people wearing Star Wars shirts. It's a world wide thing.

Even before Kasich dropped out a day after Cruz (I was not sad about that), I always wondered if he could have hung in there to see a contested nomination by some means of ignoring the delegate votes.

Love these TBT with vintage action figures.

Finding out that Prince had died a week ago Thursday was a shock. I was a pretty big fan and this was a loss for me on many levels. I expected him to live into his 80's. Alas, it was not to be. We've lost way too many musicians this year and we are barely 4 months into 2016.

I never had Alive III, but had Alive! and Alive II. But I'm going to completely agree with you on your view of the Unplugged album. I really like that one a lot. Peter Criss gives a great performance of "Beth" and it was nice to also have all 4 original members on stage for a couple of songs.

I'm guessing pencil sharpener this week. Thanks to LeSombre over on FB for his suggestion.

Gary's point about them not selling for 99 cents, but then going higher when they got relisted makes sense, if they wanted to sell them for more. Still seems a bit on the odd side that if no one bought them at 99 cents, there's a chance no one will buy them for $8.99. Unless they came across as undervalued.

Last week's guess.... I totally am kicking myself as I have a pair that I use for podcasting. Should have looked at them closer. Taking that hint a bit farther today, I look on my desk and see something similar above... a binder clip

I do this about once a month, checking for accounts that don't follow me that once did, but no longer tweet anything I'm interested in. For friends, I rarely unfollow. They pretty much have to just post a bunch of hate-laced messages a lot before I unfollow them. For Twitter, I normally mute someone that I'm not interested in seeing their tweets, but still want to follow and check their feed every month or so to see if it was a temp insanity or perm insanity. Facebook is am entirely different animal altogether, but using some of the same above criteria I use with Twitter. I unfollow (stop their posts from appearing on my FB feed) a lot, mostly due to who they are (someone I grew up with and have nothing in common except I know them in person) and what they post (mostly religious or political propaganda)

As I mentioned on Instagram, even though the drinks I get at Starbucks cost more, I spent at least half of that $150 in the last 12 months to maintain Gold. I credit that to bonus stars. I think it's very nice of Starbucks to offer a quick and cheap way to maintain Gold for another year. I drink Keurig at home (no K-Cups, we have the use your own ground coffee adapters and filters) and at work. And every once in a while I use other local coffee shops.

I studied it a bit harder and I'd like to take a better guess. An ice cube (in an adult beverage).
