Petaluma Pothole Ice Cream? But of course :-)

Petaluma Pothole Clo Sign

Potholes are Not Peculiar to Petaluma!

Our infrastructure is not unique in its decay.

Potholes are, however, a “hot” topic in local politics.

Several weeks ago I noticed a new Clover Stornetta sign on 101 promoting (in the free spirit of Clo the Cow) Petaluma Pothole Ice Cream.  I got a quick snap of the sign but vowed to get a more professional image…and to buy a carton of the ice cream.

Getting the photo was a challenge but I managed to pull it off (No, I wasn’t driving) and I present it in all its glory for your visual consumption…

Finding the Pothole Ice Cream took a little more time than expected as the shelves at G & G were always empty but I did find it a few days ago…the last carton on the shelf.  So I bought it before it disappeared…

So as you prepare for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, pick up a carton for your holiday spread.

As Clo reports 0n the back of container…

“It’s a pothole you’ll want to hit.”

And if you hit it just right…

YOU CAN MAKE A MILKSHAKE!! :-)

 

 

Secret Golden Gate Bridge Seismic Upgrade!

EmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmoji

BREAKING NEWS!

Working under the cover of fog in the evening and early morning hours for several months, California authorities today reported that the seismic upgrade of the Golden Gate Bridge was completed.

With the new third tower, it is now as safe as the recently completed Bay Bridge! 

Early this morning the fog was removed and returned to the Capitol building in  Sacramento…

And now, the new look of the GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE…

So…What WERE They Doing? :-)

Dateline: Petaluma, California

One afternoon on the dock by the old trestle…

For the longest time I could not decide what these curiously attired people were doing. 

Now after a month with our first Smartphone…I finally figured it out!

He was teaching her how to use her Smartphone… :-)

After much (futile) resistance…finally…a SMARTPHONE

While I am not entirely sure about the “Smart” portion of the name, we finally added a piece of the 21st Century to our repertoire of devices and toys…courtesy of Sprint…

Smart? Phone?

Smart? Phone?

After struggling up the learning curve a few inches, we finally managed a video phone conversation with my wife’s cousin in Illinois.  To be honest, it was a real hoot. Will be attempting it again with my mother in law next week.

Getting used to finger swipes, etc., takes some doing for “mouse oriented” people like us.  To be perfectly honest, using a stylus is much more accurate for us than our ancient fingers.  Frankly, we don’t understand how people can manage it while driving or walking across the street.  They must have more agile fingers than we do.  By comparison, I use a blunted toothpick to operate my Mp3 players.

On balance, we are getting use to it.

I intend, however to keep my Dumb Flip Phone :-)
