For those of you who haven’t yet read the Post that I published just this past Wednesday titled ..  MAR 15, 23 .. HOW IS THE WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE ? .. You may want to, that is IF you are interested in “Brain Teasers”, check it out by clicking onto the below link..

Brief Synopsis of the above Post :

One of our very best and closest friends recently sent me a “Brain Teaser”.

For my own mental health, I am simply NOT WILLING to allow a “Brain Teaser”, something that someone outside of me sends to me, to get inside of my brain and cause me to begin to ruminate on it. Ruminate means to meditate, muse, and ponder, over and over and over again.

What is a “Brain Teaser”? A “Brain Teaser” is something that demands mental effort and acuity for its solution. Cap’s definition : A “Brain Teaser” is something that will wrack and torture my brain because for me, they are difficult and practically impossible for me to correctly solve. They can get “stuck in my obsessive-compulsive racing manic brain” and I am unable to “let them go”. If I allow outside issues to get into my brain, it can cause me great frustration. 

Bottom Line : I am NOT willing to even begin to allow a “Brain Teaser” to make me feel bad about myself because I am unable to correctly solve one, or even all, of them.

As I write, today is Friday the 17th of March 2023


Here I sit, ruminating on the phrase “Brain Teaser”. Further, I have just now created a “category” here on dotnet titled “Brain Teaser”.

Just the phrase “Brain Teaser” is racing around and around my brain. This, in and of itself, is not bad because I am not “beating myself up and making myself feel bad” about it. So my ruminating about the phrase is not causing me any issues.

I hope you are sitting down Gullible. Last night (figuratively speaking not actually) I could hardly sleep because I was just waiting for this morning (Friday Morning the 17th of March) to arrive.

And just why could I hardly sleep because I was just waiting for this morning (Friday Morning the 17th of March) to arrive?

Because (Tee-Hee) I, your Captain who does NOT like “Brain Teasers”, wanted to write, to create, a “Brain Teaser” for all of you.

Cap’s “Brain Teaser” 

First study the below photos!

Cap’s “Brain Teaser” .. There is a relatively good chance that what you are seeing in the above photos of a Smith’s Grocery store here in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, could enable YOU, in or near YOUR home town, to purchase gasoline at $2.809 per gallon, perhaps for even less. Please fill-in-the-blanks and explain how this can possibly be correct.

Because a “Brain Teaser” has to be just a little bit “challenging” the following answers ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Grocery Store. Gas Station. Drug Store. Store in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Store in Phoenix, Arizona.

Have fun.  I will explain the answer in a later Post giving you all some time to consider the answer to my “Brain Teaser”.

Smiling at my very own “Brain Teaser”.

Cap and of course Patti too.

    OK, I am willing to cry “uncle.” My brain is broken. Looking forward to seeing the answer. Although, I will likely be embarrassed if the answer is obvious. So maybe, I am not looking forward to the answer. :-)
