Steve's Idea, What's Your Best Price, Mexican Fare

1. We used to go for long drives when we were young and penniless. Owning nothing but a car and plenty of free time, we would pack food for the day and explore the back roads of the northeast. This morning's drive was slightly reminiscent of those days as we drove southern roads with the illusion of having all the free time in the world. This is still one of my favorite things to do.
2. The kind of antique shop that is really a hoarder's junk shop. Where I have to squeeze through tightly packed aisles of dusty stuff, poking and lifting, looking for treasure. Nothing is priced, so I ask the owner and she throws a number into the air. I like it when it's done this way.
3. We met up with Daughter #3 and her friend for lunch/dinner at Alejandro's. Between us, we ordered burritos, carnitas (sounds much better when we roll the "r's") and fish tacos. Delicious!


  1. People used to go for drives and visit more long ago. I remember those times.

  2. My mom and dad used to take for rides on Sunday afternoons like that - they'd say "let's go ride." I still like to do that, too.

  3. I love long, go nowhere special drives. And the antique shops where you can haggle over the price--the one that hasn't really been set. ;)
