Thank goodness it’s Friday

It’s a big day today
Everything is marked down
This means everybody with a dollar can buy something

And everybody does

I will be running – non stop – for over 12 hours

I will see countless – thousands of faces

Don’t eat sushi on these days
Don’t , son .
Just don’t

Don’t drink ANYTHING other than water
Water is good

Your legs will cramp sooooo bad if you drink tea – it’s called dehydration .

And if you consume candy , and Caffeine ??
Forget about it
It hits you like a freight train in the chest
You won’t even see it coming
just
BOOM

It’s hot outside
You’re moving thousands of cases of water
It’s THE closest thing to farming I’ve done in a long time . Throwing cases of water . Stacking cases of water . Pulling pallets of water .
I think often … How I should work out MORE . On these days . I’m completely out of shape …
I’ve tossed hay bales … Ran from angry bulls … Angry goats … Geese .. The list goes on .
So I don’t mind the running .
It’s just so hot outside .
And sushi ?
Yeah dumbest idea for lunch EVER . Just don’t .

The spot

Recently I wrote about some cool places in Mentone . Well, there is a cool new business here in my home town . https://www.facebook.com/TheSpotCoffeeShop

Called The Spot

It’s retro and fresh . Something we need . Every Friday they have live music. Sometimes karaoke ….and you can purchase local art here as well .
So if you’re ever in Fort Payne Alabama , former sock Capitol of the world ….And need a caffeine fix
This is it

The wildflower cafe

If you’re ever in Alabama , preferably Fort Payne Alabama , you should drive up into Mentone just outside of Fort Payne on the mountain . Where you will find anything from Miracle Pottery to The Wild Flower Cafe . https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wildflower-Cafe/136038716125

It’s a nice place , with almost a Nicholas Sparks feeling to it .
Prices range from 10 to 30 dollars …
I highly recommend it for a date night . Or a tourist stop for lunch or dinner . With photos and art on the walls for sale it’s definitely a must see for anybody . For anybody will find something they like here .
