SMILING ON: 2nd Tuesday of April 2018

The weather gods are smiling on Mendocino because the weather is just beautiful up here. So spectacularly gorgeous. And to think she worried about cold etc etc etc

Anyhoo, self’s favorite parking spot was not taken, she couldn’t believe her incredible luck. She sailed her 98 Altima into the space like, you know, she owned it.

SMILE SMILE SMILE

Also, she decided to treat herself to a cup of Mendosa’s clam chowder, MORE REASONS TO SMILE:

On the way up (the trip took her five hours, including two stops to keep awake and five pull-overs on 128 to let faster vehicles pass and one ten-minute wait due to roadwork), she stopped by Big John’s Market in Healdsburg. A group was selling cookies for a dollar. Women got the 100% cookies, and men got the 80% cookies, good way to make the point that women should get EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK. It’s really troubling that, in this day and age, women still get only 80% of what men get, simply because of their gender.

The cookies were dee-lish! Put a big smile on self’s face, for sure!

    A perfect way to make the point. Hit men in the stomach.

      I thought it was pretty clever myself! That was a REALLY good cookie, BTW. Men, look and weep!

        My wife had quite a laugh at the 80/100 idea.

        Come to think of it, I didn’t see any men paying a dollar to get an 80% cookie, LOL
