Yeah, savoche's don't look too exciting, do they?
Oh, I dunno . . . . . . . . there was a time when we would brave cold, damp late autumn days, kneeling in cow pastures filling sandwich bags full of them.

They were great fun on a Saturday night out.

It's not by being colourful they're supposed to make the world more colourful...
Or at least enhance one's perception of the world.

Mushrooms?
Never did any of that wicked stuff......didn't need to. I had Budweiser for me and Southern Comfort for the girls. I never saw any purty colors or swirling lights like you guys, but I did see plenty of naked girls!

Bought this plant for my Mom five years ago. It has multiplied and bloomed the week before Mothers Day every year since then.

She had a ton of flowers from kids and grandkids today...but guess which one is still her favorite?



Regards!

I remember rewatching a kids TV series called 'HR Pufnstuf', and thinking thank goodness all that drug imagery was dated and not being forced on children still.


Then I saw the Teletubbies for the first time!

I think it has actually gotten worse now.

Worn out Rupert.....Mothers Day took a toll on my old body. Spent half the day driving through traffic to see my Mom, then drove back in time for a surprise dinner for Mrs Rupert by our oldest Grandson. He is the apple of her eye, so she was absolutely thrilled.





He bought dinner and gave her some gorgeous French ruffled tulips...never seen any like these?


The petals are thick and waxy, and gorgeous!


It was a great day for Mrs Rupert....and my Mom...which is what counts on Mothers Day!

We went to Sioux Falls today. As we were about to head home we made our last, routine, stop. World Market. In the strip mall where it's locacted there used to be a Bed Bath and Beyond, which closed up several months ago.
Okay, okay, not a very exciting story so far.
Well, there's a new sign on the old Bed Bath and Beyond store. Two new signs, actually.
One says Opening Soon, and the other says.....



wait........




wait.......




Aldi





Woohoo!


Still 225 miles away, but around here that's practically next door.

They are getting very aggressive in Australia ... they sense real weakness in the established supermarket chains.

I love Aldis...in there 2-3 times a week at least. Not sure I love it 225 miles worth though! However, they are expanding rapidly, so they might have one coming to Pierre soon?
If you stock up well enough, and need to make the trip anyhow, you can save enough on purchases to pay for your trip. Their own brands are superb, fear not. Long live Aldis!
BTW-Their pre-cooked bacon is the best! It's "all good" at Aldis!

There is a rumor, though, that we may someday git some of that there, whatchacallit, lectricity and mebe evin some indoor plumin.
A real grocery store? Pft........
Fortunately our son and his fiance live in Sioux Falls so we have a good excuse to visit.
I told Mrs Parallax that once it's open we'll light the fridge in the camper and take another road trip.

Glad they had a great day too!
It was one of the best here. Mrs Rupert is in heaven with our oldest grandson visiting for the night. Whenever you see them together, they are both smiling...makes me smile too! I hear them playing cards and laughing as I type this......he says she's cheating.....
He was three when his parents divorced and it devastated him. Our son was in the Army and spent 18 of his 22 years overseas...so we got his parental rights. We practically raised Jeffrey and his younger brother so he associates Mrs Rupert as his mother....his birth mother...well, I won't go there.
The bond is very strong. It was like that with me and my Grandmother, and so I never interfere or do anything to hinder that bond.....just as my Grandad never did.

Just a quick trip for a six pack, right?
