$36.95 and holding ...

This isn't exactly Thanksgiving Day fodder ...

I purchased a pair of Levi 501 blue jeans at Arian's Supply Sergeant in Placerville yesterday. As I entered the $39.72 price tag ($36.95 plus 7.5 percent sales tax) into Quicken this morning, I noticed the price hadn't changed in the 2-1/2 years since I last purchased a pair.

While I realize this isn't something that we normally attach to Thanksgiving Day thankfulness, it's nice to see the price of Levi's is holding in Placerville.

So, in a small way, I'm thankful for that some items are in a holding pattern, especially in this time of high mortgage payments, food prices, etc. It's nice to don a pair of $36.95 Levi's or drive on a $50 gas tank, even if for a short time.
