Processing on Plumas Blvd
After Michael's appointment with the surgeon today, we walked and processed. We visited a restaurant called, "Squeeze Inn"....I thought it would be like Jamba Juice. ::snort:: Turns out it has been voted "Best Dive" by a Sacramento newspaper. It's a dive....great burgers and shakes....no juice in sight. Though after seeing the orders come out, I DO understand the photo and the name. ::snort::
Across from Squeeze Inn is Gaiser Pets.
It is unusual to find a pet store in America with real animals. I KNOW - please don't explain WHY to me - I get it. It's just that one of our favorite outings when the older Gherkins were young was to visit a pet store and see all the animals. When we lived in Misawa we visited a local store in the mall which had puppies and kittens. I'd heard of this store before, but hadn't visited.
This pet store SMELLS when you enter. A sure sign there are ANIMALS inside the store. ::snort::
There are no dogs (I get it), but there are fish (lots of them), birds, cats, reptiles, amphibians.....We turned a corner and found this guy hanging out.
We KNEW I needed to bring Stacia here. She has been asking to visit a pet store all year..and we KNOW she is not going to find the cute animals she is expecting from our visits to the pet store in Japan.
We turned a corner and ran into this guy - I'm not so sure about HIM....but he seemed friendly enough.
They have lots of pet supplies and give away free Bibles.....we'll be back.
During our walk I noted a diner with a poster in the window that says, "Voted Best Breakfast and Lunch." I think a Saturday morning girls date is shaping up - maybe when Krista and Lindsey are here.
Living all of life before the face of God...
