Old West End Festival
We toured one mansion, and then toured a house that was in the process of being rennovated (which kind of sucked because we had to pay to get in, and it was only partially done).
We went to a ton of garage sales too. I bought this little metal figurine thingy for Jen (Roland Metal Art), a gift set of candles (which comes from this incense guy that we see down there every year), and a stocking cap from a garage sale for 80cents.. (like I need another stocking cap!!).
Good day though. I had full intensions of coming home and going to a wedding, but I was delayed, and had the lawn to mow.. so I bailed. Instead, I cleaned around the house, went to the cigar store and smoked a Juan Lopez cigar (which kind of sucked by the way.. made me ill!).., and met some cool folks hanging out there, drove around looking for a garage sale that has a camper at it (which I never did find), came home and ordered to go China Gate. When I was in waiting for my order, some young dude walked in with his girl and he shouted 'it smells like a dead cow in here!'.. then he grabbed a menu and flipped through it, didn't see anything he liked then asked me (sounding rather rude too).. 'They got Sushi here??'.. Nope, not in Monroe, I said. So they stormed out.. The girl gave me a shrug as if to say 'yeah, he's a jerk'..
Anyhow, that's it for today. I installed the AC's in two rooms that need it most too.. I hear tomorrow's going to be 90! over and out.
