Lunch With Ben's Best Buddy

Up at 6 am because I wanted to have breakfast and then get over to Stater Brothers to do my grocery shopping. My friend Ed is coming to go to lunch today, so I need to get my errands done before he got here.
It’s nice to shop early in the morning because there is hardly anyone in the store. Only problem is they usually only have one checkout lane open.
I have a new pet peeve…I hate when I’m at a stop light and the person in front of me is texting and when the light turns green, they just sit there because they are too busy looking at their phone to know that the light has changed. You can tell that they have been texting because when you honk at them, their head pops up really quick. Guess they don’t know that “no texting when you are behind the wheel of your car” includes when you are stopped at a light. It was bad enough when people were using their cell phones to make calls when they were driving, but texting is worse.
So Ed arrived around 10:30 am and we talked for a while and then headed up to the Sizzler for lunch. I was surprised that there were quite a few people there today, but then it was a holiday and some people didn’t have to work. The prices have gotten so high at Sizzler that a lot of people don’t eat there anymore.
We came back home and played with Hiker out in my yard for a while, then Ed headed for home.
Was about 84° here today. About 15° lower than it was yesterday, but still too hot for February.

  1. Texting when driving is definitely a NO NO, I agree with you. I like shopping when the stores are empty too. Sounds like you had a nice lunch.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
