Day 24 - Redding, CA

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend and given some thought as to what it's about. Not simply another holiday or a long weekend. Memorial Day is an opportunity to not only remember those that died in the service to our country but the sacrifice of their families and other survivors. It's also an opportunity to thank those that are actively serving their country. A huge thank you for helping to ensure that we can enjoy the freedom that we often take for granted. 

Today was another hot, sunny day. The only outing was a walk to the local grocery store, Raley's on Lake Ave, for a few more items. One item at the top of the non-existent list was AA batteries for a indoor/outdoor thermometer. Of course, I returned with a bunch of items not on the non-existent list but forgot about the batteries. Maybe it's time to use an actual list.

This VW bus is painted on the garage door of a small shop that is on the way to the grocery store. Not sure of the actual business but I like their painting. And, as nice as the Redlands is, it would be nice to get on the road again. Hopefully we get some good news from the dealer tomorrow. Something besides they haven't gotten to it yet...

  1. Bus Boys, interestingly enough, sells VW parts. I've actually ordered from them before. I figured they were in an anonymous warehouse someplace but it turns out the warehouse isn't so anonymous. Cool.

    1. That's amazing that you've dealt with them. I'm not sure whether or not the shop was still in business.

  2. I've always found those painted garage doors amusing. I've seen sites online where one can get a variety of stickers that make it look like you've a fighter jet or a train parked in your garage.

    1. The train sounds pretty cool. Though you may need a taller door and the HOA may complain...

  3. Doesn't that fancy Apple Watch make grocery lists? You just needed to repeat batteries over and over again in your head as you walked. Like the old cartoon....a loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of butter.
