"SeaJay's" got a new GPS to get us to the rally!

Hi folks! I am looking forward to meeting you this weekend. I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable trip. We are ready and hopefully have our mandatory "trip crisis" behind us. Here's a little hint:

Cost of dinner ( roast beef with mushroom and onion gravy, greenbeans, rice, homemade biscuits and iced tea) approx. $15.00

Cost of new TomTom GPS $150.00

Look on my husband "SeaJay's" face when he dropped the GPS we already had in the gravy ... PRICELESS!! Heheheheheheheheheheeeeeeee......

Does that mean the 5 second rule does not apply to gravy?

Dropped my cellphone in my coffee the other morning. $800.00 cup of coffee, just didn't that good. Tell SeaJay, he got off cheap.

FYI Something to try next time your cell phone or GPS goes swimming. As fast as possible -- even before the cussin' -- fish it out, dry off the outside and remove the battery. Then dry as throughly as possible, everything inside and bury it in a bowl or bag that will seal tighly along with a pound of uncooked white rice. Now you can take time for all the cussin' ya want, but you have a 50/50 chance of a working device when you unseal it in 3 days.

White rice absorbs water without getting into the electronics and many a cell phone has been saved by it. I eat brown rice, not white, but there alwys a bag in the cabinet since I heard about this trick. But of course, I found this out AFTER my cell took a dive into the toilet.

LOL! The 5 second rule most certainly did apply and that gravy was wonderful ( yes, braggin' on my own gravy) BUT the real damage came when "SeaJay" tried to rinse the gravy off using water. I am going to suggest that he take out the battery and cover it with a towel and bury it in rice while we are gone to the rally. I still laugh at him every time I think about. That expression was priceless for sure!

Thanks for the info! We will try this and leave it there for the time we are away at the rally. Thanks, Willa

I never saw a GPS unit that had a removable battery. I just wish you had a camera with you to take a video of SeaJay's "adventure". That would surely win America's funniest home video.
Ya'all have a rootin tootin good time at the rally, a medical reason is keeping me home this year.
