Something a little different

As a passenger, one gets the chance to view the surroundings at a more leisurely pace. I remember sitting in the backseat of the car when my parents went grocery shopping every Friday night. We had to go across the city to a plaza where the nearest big grocery store was. Sitting in the backseat, I would look out the window and, because I loved shoes, I always looked at what the ladies were wearing on their feet. These days I look at the changes in the stores. There are so many independent, and also chain, coffee shops. There are also a lot of restaurants and bars. The names of two such places have given me some amusement whenever we pass by. I finally have photos so you can see for yourself why I am amused.

Insomnia. And right across the street is...



  1. Wow, two good names, I couldn't sleep, and I forgot why. Where was the quilting shop?? And a good name for that could well be " Treasury" in that you need a bank behind you to be able to get all the goodies, and inside is a delightful treasure of more goodies. I'm sure the trip was eventful!1 Cheers, Jean

  2. Probably owned by the same guy.....

  3. That IS amusing! I love Nancy's comment.

  4. Love those names!
    Love the new look!

  5. That's absolutely too perfect isn't it? Way to keep humour alive.
