Last thing I bought was 3 lemons this morning at the market : 3 green roofs exactly at the center of the picture (http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=48.706617,2.212307&spn=0.005119,0.010131&t=k&hl=en)
I did actually buy more (list upon request) but this was really the last item.

Exciting isnt'it ? :E :E

BTW, this is not the market I shop usually at, so no need to download the coordinates into your cruise missile.

Not sure if Master Drapes would appreciate this boring and pointless thread being merged into TRRBATPSOIT :rolleyes:

how do I know if it's "absolutely" the last thing I buy? That means I'm about to die somewhere between my desk and the shop, in the next two minutes, when I go to buy some biscuits to go with my tea. I think I'll wait until get back to my desk before I make my tea, if I die I'll have wasted my time.

I suppose that means this might be my absolutely last post on pprune... :}

This morning: Visit to Shell station $30 and some.

Shell is at intersection of Hurley and MD-28. Across Rte 28 from Shell is a hotel where one of the more notable spies was arrested.

Then bought at supermarket: Two rolls paper kitchen towels, cough syrup, made a salad at their salad bar, newspaper, two tins of soup, box of crackers.

Supermarket at intersection of Hurley & Wootton. The market is surrounded by heavily-wooded humps so it is essentially invisible from the street. There's a Greek rest., Chinese carryout, two banks, hairdresser, drycleaner, tutoring center and dentist in the market complex. High school & Intermediate School south of market.

I don't know what the very last thing was because it was all delivered together, namely a Chicken Madras, a Pilau Rice, a Garlic Naan, and a Tarka Dhal.

I spose if you require a definite answer it would have to be the Tarka Dhal as that was the last item on the list that I ordered.

All for the princely sum of five pounds eighty, absolute bargain with free use of a drum kit thrown in.
