Chuck Taylors

As we were out doing some shopping, I came across a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars.  I own two pair.  But then I realized as a huge college basketball fan, I really didn’t know who Chuck Taylor was!  I’ve owned a pair pretty much all my life, but I remember my first pair back in Jr. High, because my Mom shouted, “I am NOT paying $20 for a pair of basketball shoes!!!”  The ones I saw the other day were $55…

Trader Joe’s

Trader JoesFinally, Boise has a Trader Joe’s. If you’ve never been to one, it’s a small grocery store where you can buy “unconventional and interesting” products, not your normal everyday brands you’d see at your SUPER market. In fact, you won’t find hardly any. There may be a product that stays awhile, or sometimes, when it sells out, that’s it. But it’s always fun to see what new food items are in, and to just get my staples…you know, cookie butter and  Blonde Joe-Joe’s… I like just about everything there, except I’m NOT a Tofu or Tofurkey guy by any stretch of the imagination but the fresh organic veggies are about the same price as the Chemical Veggies the big guys sell. The workers all run around in Hawaiian Shirts and are friendly and very helpful. The parking,…uh…well…um,…lets just say I’m thankful we have a Trader Joe’s and my timing is bad.  A fun time. Fun food. Check them out at traderjoes.com.
