Default Shopping on my sleigh

I finally got the last of the Christmas shopping done today. I did it all on the Beamer. It's a chilly 82 degrees today in San Diego so I was able to keep the heated grips off.

It's amazing how quickly I can zip around while all the people in the cages battle it out. Screw em!

I usta think the same thing... Be carefull out there, this is the worst time for pre-occupied drivers of giant vehicles. Use extra caution, 'specially around dusk. And if you feel hinky about taking a route, don't take it. Listen to that voice in your head.

I finished up, grabbed a carne asada burrito on the way home and grabbed the cage cuz I needed some larger items.

The moms in the SUVs are out of control right now.

The Best Buy parking lot was packed to the gills last night. I rode the Zook right up by the door. It's a happy feeling. Unfortunately it didn't help much at the checkout line.

I was visiting one evening at a friend's house. He needed to run to Home Depot for some stuff, so I offered to take him in my (then brand new) Mini Cooper. You know that "Contractor's Entrance" they have on one end of the store? Turns out they didn't mean "drive through" entrance. Who knew?

PS: Home Depot management has no sense of humor at all.
