I made the weekly grocery store pilgrimage yesterday morning. My thoughts were to get there early unlike last weeks pre-blizzard headache in hopes of dealing with less people; get in and get out like a burglar in the night. Fat chance, the grocery store never lets me down with comic relief and head shaking antics no matter what time I go and the full parking lot at 8:00 AM made me slump in the drivers seat. This weeks theme was the post cross-fit workout dressed soccer mom who just can't seem to put the smart phone down while she shops. Hey, you know the one right? On the phone the entirety of her shopping experience, rudely talking out loud with whomever is on the other end so everyone can hear just how important she is. Or once off the phone, decides to text or diddle with that mini computer every other waking second, stopping mid aisle so that nobody else can get done what they went to the supermarket for in the first place. Total genius, I salute you maam, leave your drama dictation device in the car. I felt like I was in an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County; everyone around me had the same look of disgust watching this unfold in the store, sucks when you are on the same time hack as these types cuz you just can't escape until you are at the checkout line. Every aisle I perused I was met with this fruitcake. So, in honor of my favorite knucklehead at the supermarket, I took all photos with my Iphone, although you don't know it, you've inspired me.
Upcountry Services. I will say that the class was another great day with a good group. We finished the day with a half dozen single hook streamers that all turned out very well. I want to thank everyone this winter who signed up for all of the classes, you were all great students and it was my pleasure working with each and every one of you.
Next on the agenda is getting all of my own fly stocks up to speed for the season. I have many holes to fill before the season kicks in, not to mention the streamer orders I have begun to accumulate. I have been chipping away a little each day, and hopefully by the time all this white stuff melts, I will have everything in check. This has also given me the opportunity to brainstorm some new class ideas for the upcoming year, as well as play around with some new materials that I have not had the opportunity to tinker with.
