It was amazing today how people cleared out of the office building around 3pm today. I was expecting heavy traffic going home, but it was just the opposite. In fact, it was just the opposite of the S.F. Bay Area. Rather than super heavy traffic on the Friday of a 3-day weekend, it was extra light. I do like it here.
Here’s another opposite. I stopped at WalMart on the way home. 6pm, Friday night before Labor Day, at WalMart, and it was about the same as it always is at that time of day. In fact, I even found a Red Box movie that I hadn’t seen.
Speaking of that… We watched 7 Pounds. I found it a rather depressing movie. As much as I enjoy some of Will Smith’s movies, the movie itself just didn’t have a very uplifting plot. Will Smith did a fantastic job acting, as he usually does, but the story line was pretty dark.
I have been missing tacos. You do not find any fast-food Mexican places around here. There is only one Taco Bell, and it is inside a mall about 15 miles from here. So, to satisfy my urge, I bought fixings to make tacos. Now, here’s the sad part – the taco shells we bought an hour before at WalMart tasted like they had been on the shelf for years.
Elders Flynn and Boudreaux joined us for dinner. It was fun visiting with them. Elder Flynn has quite a jolly personality… and he loves his hot sauce.
When you come visit from California, remember that we need fresh tortillas here. 😉
