Trader Joe's & The Rock Garden


Spent the day with my Mom. We went to Eugene and stopped by Trader Joe's... Got me some 2Buck Chuck Wine.. that costs 3 bucks in Oregon. hmm.. good stuff for cheap.. Then bought some Macadamia/Cranberry Cookies.. they are good actually...
We also went to the mall. We were walking by one shop and you could smell incense burning.. My mom said and I Quote "smells like dope".. I said "Mother.. that isn't dope it's incense.." I Said "Besides dope is White Drugs not Mary Ja wanna." Oh she said "well it stinks, you can put that on your blog" she said.. What a nut she is.. bwahahahahah... Also she informed me today that all the hippie's moved to Eugene when San Francisco had the earth quake in 1989... I said " how do you know this?" She Said, "I read it somewhere, after the freeways feel apart they made a mass exudus to Eugene." Interesting...


Then my son called the Rock Crawler Builder. Wanted us to go by Sky Manufacturing and pick up parts... He says "on the right side of the road you will see a Rock Garden and that is where you go"... Okay, so we get there it's on the left side of the road and here is a picture of the Rock Garden... Hmmf.. I thought.. What a mess this joint was inside.. metal everywhere, packing supplies everywhere... mess pushed up against the walls. America Made they say.. But, What a dark, dingy, messy place.. We are in the Quality business we don't worry about the mess they said.. When I walked in I had no idea what door to use or where to even go.. Finally I saw a guy talking on a phone.. it was scary.. If I didn't know car parts I would have thought I was in a creepy place... it smelled of welding.. I know that smell for certain.. I said "you have parts for Justin Smith..." he said "we do?.." he called another guy on the phone.. They had no idea who Justin Smith was.. So I thought "Pinky"... well they knew who the hell that was.. "Oh Pinky, yes we have stuff for him.." Bwahahahaha That kid of mine is something.

Car guys! The corporate places are tidy, like Napa, but the rest of them are all kinda messy.

Not that I have room to point fingers at messy.

Uh, rocks and weeds. Typical guy description!
I won't go with hubman when he goes certain places like that. Makes my skin crawl. We used to have several classic cars and he'd go to old junk heaps looking for parts (like "Pick Parts"). Well, after jumping aside from a couple of black widows, I sat in the car.
We love Trader Joe's. Good stuff and great prices...
~~~Blessings~~~

*LOL* It's funny that she said "and you can put that on your blog". It makes me wonder if people watch what they say to me for fear it might be posted for the world to see. Heh heh heh

Trader Joe's... Man, for years I've been jonesing for a location here in Nashville and it's been open for two months and I've yet to set foot in the store... that just ain't right.

Mom's funny... whenever I smell Patchouli I think of pot.

THAT's a rock garden?? Well, it's definitely rocks!

Speaking of which - your mom rocks and cracks me up!!

Haha, your mom is funny! But she's right about the hippies. They start in San Fransisco and then bleed up to infect Oregon and Washington. :-0

I remember driving through Eugene a few years back, I was mesmorized by how beautiful it was. :)
