Other than the next leg(s) of Bush's travel to and from and to and from.
Really. Come on.

Even I didn't get this kind of posthumous celebrity treatment! Not even an extra senior discount day at Golden Correl...

No dead guy discounts? That sucks. Of course, booth cleanup pre-embalming is expensive.

Golden Corral is getting wise to my cheapness strategies. They used to have a senior discount lunch special which was good until 4:00 and featured the buffet and a drink for less than the normal senior price of the buffet alone. So, Mrs. SSS and I would go there just before 4:00, get the special and then when they brought out the steak and other "premium" meats at 4:00, we would get a plate or two of them as well.

Now, they've cut back on the special so it's only good until 3:00. So, we have to either sit around in the Golden Corral for an hour while the manager gives us an ugly stare or come in just before 4 and get the regular senior pricing which isn't quite as good a deal and doesn't include a free drink.

I hate it when restaurants get wise to my strategies.

Wow. You're tighter than Ranger Jeff. He would beat you at coupons, tho.

For what it's worth, I don't take bets like that. Couponing in large part depends on what items you're looking to buy and how your local stores handle closeouts, near-expiration-dates and similar items (and how picky you are about buying those sorts of things; as you might guess, I'm not very picky). Also whether you still have access to double coupons (both Kroger and Publix did away with them a while back here in Atlanta).

Yeah, no double coupons. We're set in case of nukleer war on non perishables...
