I Bunch of "Whys"

Why has Walmart already shut most of their Garden Center down?

Why is Hobby Lobby already putting out Christmas decorations?

Why does the rain keep pooping out when it comes near my house?

Why do struts cost so much for a Dodge Grand Caravan?

Do you have any answers or "whys" of your own? Feel free to make comments in teh comments section. Juct click "anonymous" if you are not a blogger!

the struts cost so much because the caravan is somewhere between a pick up and a car and depending on the year model they may have only recently become available at parts stores. Usually it takes a year or two after the vehicle to has been on the market to get aftermarket parts and then they cost more because they are not as readily available. But if you are able to do your own work it is always cheaper and trust me i know my husband and i just had to rebuild and engine on an 89 bronco and it was still expensive.... but it would have cost 3 times as much if we had paid someone else to do it.

My wife and I were talking about wal-mart and the garden center yesterday, I noticed they have cut the size of the outside area by half. I also noticed they are already cutting down on the number of summer items ie. pools ect.

The rain does the same thing here. If we had rain everytime we heard thunder and saw black clouds we would be a small swamp.

I hope the caravan isnt to bad to work on we bought 1 last year and havent had problems yet. But you know 3 years 36,000 miles then I bet it will break.

Have a good one!!

I think the rain poops out near your house because God has a sense of humor about you weathermen who are trying to predict what Mother Nature has in store for us. Start washing the van the next time you see a dark cloud coming. Maybe that will bring the rain.

Glen says that parts are made to wear out so they can charge too much to replace them. It's all about the Benjamins.

As for Walmart and Hobby Lobby, that's probably all about money too. At least we can get a good deal on windchimes and gardening gloves.

because you do not plant anything in July or Aug. because of the heat and lack of rain, which answers your first two questions, something any good weatherman would know... should have bought a Chevy, the strutts would still be fine...

Hobby Lobby gets their stuff for Christmas out early so that people that go really big time Christmas decorating in their yard & houses have 4 months to get it all ready. I mean some people spend more on their yard decorations & house decorations than most people spend on a mortgage loan !!!!
