This evening we took a drive to Aberdeen for dinner. It was a beautiful day, all day.
Ralph likes to take the logging / industrial route. Believing it faster, or perhaps motivated by all the different places that service different kinds of burly equipment and engines? Here is an example of the “new” transit bus. I don’t remember when I last saw the old ass-‘n’-piss colored versions I used to ride on.
I was idly trying to get a picture of a speeding motorcyclist when Ralph burst out laughing at the “b’goyl” (his term for a creature that’s sex cannot easily be determined). I’d wager my photograph proves, or at least indicates, female-ness.
Aberdeen “boasts” one Thai restuarant and it’s got great service and decent grub. They give you free refills even on the heavenly (and sugary, and fatty) Thai iced tea! My kids fucked with their food and tried to eat just the crispy shell off the spring rolls! You suck, kids!
While taking above photo Ralph is accosted by street youths who lead us to “Tag Alley”, an designation in downtown Aberdeen specifically sequestered for legal grafitti work. There were some lovely and free-spirited, colorful works he shot photos of. I’ll let him tell you more.
An attempt by Swansons to compete with Walmart’s assy, obnoxious signs and banners. I think it’s working well, don’t you? P.S. very decent selection, as it turns out. No more driving to Top Food & Drug twice a week.
