Senior Day at the Palace of Food

…and all the sourdoughs come out to stock up on food, freak out at the crowd and hurry back home where it’s quiet.


Or at least that’s what I always end up doing. I almost always see a bunch of roughly-dressed greybeards who tragically look a lot like me, and I can imagine that’s what’s on a lot of their minds. Maybe some of them are extroverts, shouldn’t try to speak for them.

Meanwhile Tobie…


…has a brand-new knucklebone to call his own and has forgotten all about lunch.

    Dunno chief. That Tobie look is more like the “this is now mine and you ain’t touching it”

    Our little terrier gets instantly possessive of anything we give her and will growl if one moves towards it, no matter if food, bone or new toy. Toy becomes touchable in about 2 or 3 days but only if you are launching it across the room. 🙂

    Sounds like my normal grocery trip.

    Don’t forget the “freak out about prices” segment of any shopping trip.

    We tripped into the crowd at the local ‘safe’ palace of food in S. AZ renewing some scripts. Wife took a long time and later reported the pharmacy line was only about three blocks long. To submit. Drippy rain down here south of the Phoenix, Globe, Safford line.

    😀 I had a time getting that shot, because I kept moving the camera to get the bone into the frame and he kept shifting to cover it up.

    I ain’t askeard to talk to people. As an ice breaker (almost anywhere) I’ll ask “Ready for the apocalypse?” It’s almost always an affirmative, in some way.
