We went to Lincoln rather early today – we had a full agenda of Things To Do.
First stop: A place called Eco Stores. Curt gave Lloyd a hot lead on a used Icee machine. It was only $200 and looked like it was actually in working order, but honestly – this is a dream that will have to die, much like Pop-N-Dog. Eco Stores was interesting -kind of like a thrift store for building supplies. The Icee machine was out of place among the used light fixtures, sinks, tubs, tiles and hinges.
Second stop: The Home & Garden show. We were there to glean information about windows, and one company lost my interest by their glaring spelling/grammatical error. They were showing the difference between sidings -“ours” and “theirs”. They spelled it “there’s”. *sigh* I was too chicken to point it out to the people at the booth, but not too chicken to sneak a photo.
Third stop: The Chinese grocery store. I love this place, despite its odd odors. I scored 50 pairs of chopsticks for $2.50! Lloyd liked looking at all the different packages. (Future post fodder.)
Fourth stop: A late lunch.
Fifth stop: The planet Pandora. We went to see Avatar, and goofed around so we wouldn’t be there an hour early, but it turns out it was a good thing we were a half-hour early. There were two lines for our one showing! Hasn’t this movie been out forever? It was weird.
By the way, I’m on the watch for Avatar headache, something older people like me get from watching a 3-D movie for 3 hours. Those whippersnappers and those special effects of there’s.
Heh. See what I did their?
