I posted before about the new kerosene lantern that I bought at ACE Hardware for $11. I have been very happy with that and ordered 2 more. They deliver to the local store for no shipping.
While I was there I asked about just the top part that holds the wick and believe it or not they have those in stock at the store! I bought one and took it home and sure enough it fits my large old lamps so I will swing by tomorrow and pick up another one.
I also purchased 325 feet of garden hose. I have lost all of my blueberry bushes and one of the pinion pines and now my apply trees are looking bad. Next payday I will buy a soaker hose too and will begin 1 or 2 times per week through September soaking all the trees.
