I think that it's called stalking now-a-days.

Consider a trusted jeweler, not sure if I would trust Walmart on a piece I cared about. But if it's a cheapo I guess anyone could do it for you.

Default watch batteries

I went to Walmart a few years ago and they did not have the tools to do it. It is a Bulova watch. I have gone to All My Life Jewelers since.

Who are you kidding? You're a regular at Walmart even if it was a 90 year old women replacing your pace maker battery.

Batteries will be replaced many times over the years, but only a Timex watch will take a licking, and keep on ticking .......

..... here's an old Lake Winnipesaukee, home movie .... www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSv6Z5BA6e8 .... that's me diving off the rocky shore of Clay Point in Alton from the summer of 1964 ...... back when it was still CAMP ALTON ......made that dive with the Timex watch that I still use today ...... I just keep replacing that battery ..... it takes a licking, and keeps on ticking!

The Pawn broker/jeweler next to Wild Bird Depot does it for a reasonable price.

I'm surprised you went with this story. I think "your" cliff dive story is confused with "your" coin diving at the Mounts stop in Alton .......... I figure if your gonna tel a BS story go with the one - with your speed boat and outboard motor story and how it survived a trip thru the "Witches"


{I actually remember this commercial as a kid but forgot it was actually a blooper.}

How about those water pumps he got at Lowes with a 90 day guarantee, that he used as an ice eater on his dock. Returned them at day 89 for a full refund. Maybe he can teach the homeless a lesson on gaming the system.

Lowe's-Gilford seems like a very happening, successful location with way more customers now than when it first opened up. Walking around there when it first opened about ten years ago, it seemed more like a museum than a big box Lowe's.

No doubt, the NH zero/nada/no sales tax probably drives people from Massachusetts to buy it at the Gilford-Lowe's and avoid the Massachusetts 6.25% sales/use tax. Our "no NH sales tax" is factored into your local property tax bill that you get every three months.

Was somewhat surprised to see an Ariens Compact-24" snowblower, reg price $899, selling for $450 because it had been returned by a recent buyer and needed a repair. It was basically a brand new machine selling for half price ..... a steal of a deal.

Gilford-Lowe's does some good business, know's what they are doing, helps the area, and has freebie courtesy coffee in a luxurious styrofoam cup, made fresh every fifteen minutes!

Will they replace a watch battery for you ....... YES ......Lowe's service desk will replace your watch battery for free if you mention that fatlazyless sent you in there .... yuuh .... yuuh ....yuuh! ....
