Panegyric to Aprettypickle

A favorite new blog is aprettypickle. Just found it of recent. The author is a favorite too. Reading it over inspired an "adventure shopping" outing today with Miss Carmen, Little Toot and Aleve. We had coffee and took off for lunch in a new spot that turned out to be at La Perla La Pacifica out Preston Highway. Get the fried fish tacos if you go. They come five to a plate.

After lunch we hit the Viet Hoa Food Market (7100 Preston Hwy) inspired by aprettypickle. Captured the top five photos. Aleve went home with the pig.

Solstice Wish

Solstice wishes are a double edged sword. On the one edge your wish may not come true. On the other, it might. Either way the spin of the dice has a way of changing things around so what you thought you wanted isn't and vice versa. Carrie and Zac threw down another good one however the wish turns out. And for that... we are all indebted.

We have passed the Solstice point so it's time for a little winter shine. But due to a little wobble thing going on with the tilt of our planet and the sort of wiggle room that comes with Milankovitch cycles (you wouldn't really google something like that would you?) our planet doesn't reach perihelion until January third this year. So in between Solstice and perihelion I declare these days "of particular interest." And as such, they require our utmost attention. I shall ponder them over shine and radio.
