I was parked along 3rd Ave. the other day and saw Trask Mercantile sitting nearby, and snapped a photo. They have some good stuff in there, and it’s all I can do to not go in there and leave with all the things. It’s a good thing my scooter can’t hold very much.
Well, maybe not so much with the ‘happy.’ More like ‘meh.’
Someone drew this face on the side of the children’s riding horse thing at the Safeway grocery store on 1st Ave. For context, here’s a more overall shot:
I’m not a fan of marking up others’ property. In fact, I think it’s downright stupid. But that didn’t stop me from taking pictures and posting it here. At least this bit of graffiti is easily cleaned.
My friend Theresa at D’-Tail Pet Grooming on Washington St. had one of her own dogs pass away recently. Mavis the pug was something of a mascot at the shop, and never let her paralyzed back legs stop her from doing whatever she chose to do. Theresa honored Mavis with this adorable holiday window display, and I have to say it’s very fitting.
I’ve posted pictures of Mavis on here before (this one is my favorite), and anyone who met her instantly fell in love. I know I did.
I was toodling down the road when I noticed Trask Mercantile on 3rd Ave. had several windows decorated for Christmas, so I stopped to take some pictures. I also ended up going inside and buying a gorgeous Santa I could see through the window, because I collect Santa stuff. I think I’ll post a photo of that tomorrow or the next day, depending on my mood. Did I mention it’s gorgeous? Because it’s gorgeous.

I was at Wilco (an agricultural store) on 1st Ave. the other day, and saw these baby chicks for sale. They were under a heat lamp which turned everything red. If I were so inclined, I would say these hot chicks were hanging out in the red light district. Good thing I’m not so inclined.
By the way, it’s that time of year again to remind people to please, please, please do NOT buy your children cute little chicks or bunnies for Easter, unless you and your children plan on caring for them for the animals of their lives. Baby chicks grow up to be chickens. Please do not buy them unless you will follow through. And please check the laws if you live in a town or city, as they may not be allowed. These living creatures shouldn’t just be tossed aside when they are no longer fun and cute. Thank you.
I guess it’s official — summer is pretty much over. The Safeway grocery store had these little dudes on display yesterday, and that’s always what kicks my brain into gear about the change of season. I’m not ready, but I’m never ready.
I took this photo with my Samsung Galaxy S4, for those who may care.
