Been cooking on this smoker for about 10 years now I think. I did just recently have to replace the smoker box, but that was cheap enough.

There are times I have taken good care of it and times I have abused it, but it has held up well. Basic but gets the job done.

Here's my newest pair. They're laceless.
Ugh. I just HAD to go to the website and I just HAD to buy a brand new pair of shoes.

With the gas attachment adding the "stove top"....you can use the stove top to start a chimney SOOO easily. It's almost as easy as using the gas.

Congratulations on your new shoes. Did you go custom on them?

Still, it beats hell out of dry feet and calluses. You wouldn't put dry feet and calluses in those fancy custom Nike's would you?
It's a moot point for me. I wouldn't last long when civilization collapses anyway.

I did. There were quite a bit of changes that could be made, but I made only a couple. It wouldn't let me add a msg onto them for whatever reason. I'm afraid that I'm going to have a bunch of new shoes by the end of the year.

You owe me a lot of money for linking that site.

These are purchases I've made over the last couple of years that I am really happy with. It's not necessarily "OMG! Bestest Evar!!!" stuff.

I use a CPAP and it works best to sleep on my side because of it (if I sleep on my back, I stuff up and can't breathe, for some reason). However, I also have arthritis in both shoulders and the pain from the pressure on my shoulder would wake my up at night.

I ended up getting a Medcline pillow and it's been a lifesaver. It takes all pressure off the shoulder and also makes it easier to keep the mask on at night, too. It took a little to get used to it but I couldn't be happier with it.



Because the pillow is pretty massive and we were due a new mattress anyway, we then upgraded to a king sized mattress. We needed a new bed frame because of the change of size but didn't like any of the frames the local store had. I found a basic frame that we liked on Wayfair (we live in an old farm house and kind of decorate for that) so ordered it. I wasn't expecting much for 169 bucks but it is really solid and nicely made. My only quibble is that the bolt heads are chrome instead of white but I really don't notice anymore.

Part two because the other was getting long:

I picked up a small Farberware air fryer for like $30 a couple of years back. It makes amazing fries and O'brien hash browns and does a nice job if I am just browning up a chicken or burger patty or something like that. i use it all the time.

Also picked up a 6 quart Instant Pot last Black Friday. I have used a stove top pressure cooker for quite a while but the IP is really nice in that you don't have to babysit it like the stove top version.

Also last Black Friday, I picked up a Benq 4K digital projector that I absolutely love. We've had a 50" Samsung plasma TV forever and it is still going strong but I felt it was too small for movies. The wife didn't want to watch regular TV on a bigger TV so this was the compromise. It definitely adds a more movie theater type experience to movies now. With the screen I had, it is basically like having an 85" TV.



Lastly (for now), in early 2017 we bought a left over 2016 Kia Optima with the 1.6L turbo motor. With my kids and parents now spread all over the western US, we are doing more road trips and wanted something quieter and with better mileage than my Subaru. I love this car and couldn't be happier with it. It is quiet, comfortable, roomy and gets 38-40 mpg but still has plenty of power to pass, etc. Plus we picked it up brand new for $20K.

In terms of necessities:

Duck tape

WD-40

My Tacoma

Nest thermostat; being able to do everything from my phone is a godsend. Installed two in my parent's house so now when my mom calls and wants the A/C on or whatever, I just do whatever on my phone, instead of having to drive over and deal with it.

In terms of stuff I just like a lot:

My Hennessy Hammock. Most comfortable way to sleep in the woods ever.

My frameless pontoon for fishing.

My Dillon reloader. No more separate steps for weighing charges, priming cases, etc. Just pull the handle and keep everything loaded up. For pistol cartridges anyway.

My stupid Instant Pot. Thing is great. Especially the pressure cook feature. If you screw up, no problem, throw everything in there and set it. About an hour later, dinner's ready. Eat, toss pot into the dishwasher and done.

Kind of piggybacking off of the pets on furniture thread, we had to get a new cat tree around the beginning of the year and this one turned out to be one of the nicer ones I've come across. Really good quality, attractive (for a cat tree) and obviously the cats like it.

Dual control heated mattress pad. One of his side and one for hers. You can leave yours off if you want, or just use it to warm up the bed for a bit before getting into bed on those February nights.

Not so much for me, but more for the wife who is ALWAYS cold.
