Caturday salutations, Wheelizens!

I must steel myself for a trip to The Mart of the Waddlebutts this morning; I am both thrilled and delighted. (OTOH, I don’t have to bother shaving; it’s not like I’m going to Publix…)

BBL.

Here’s hoping for an uneventful, but productive trip to Mart’s Wall, Fatwa.

And good morning, GN! Happy Saturday!

Hot and windy out here -- intermittent power outages and such.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

As Sven said -- it’s hot and windy. We haven’t had any power outages, though.

L.A. Riots -- you’d think they would have taught us that the police won’t be there when they are most needed, but Berkeley has shown us we have yet to learn that lesson.

Hai, Sven and Paddy!

“Operation Waddlemart” came off without a hitch. Bonus: Snagged some beautifully trimmed sirloins for 1/3 off; they’ve already been repackaged and frozen (since they were “use or freeze by” today).

Ah…the riots; what a lovely time they were. Some friends with a newborn had just bought and moved into a place in the West Adams district; they stayed with a mutual friend in Santa Monica for several days.

I had recently left my job with Alesis, which was very close to Jefferson and Rodeo at the time; several of my former cow-workers were a little freaked. (One wag also rechristened the nearby Fedco store as “LootCo.”.)

Good times, good times.

Also remember the “Roof Koreans”, who are still held up as a positive thing in the little corner of Twitter where I hang out occasionally. A year or so ago, someone linked to a great -- if fake -- business plan for a ServPro-like company for protecting property during riots and no cops. Their highest level of protection was called “Roof Korean Tier”. 😉
