after a productive week of rennovations, we took our sunday off to ride to atlanta again. needed more tundra flooring...it gave us opportunity to revisit west elm and walk the atlantic station area. last week was texture, painting, installing crown, laying wood flooring, tiling, installing cabinetry, caulking...in between which i helped chelsea with ian at a lab appt...and accompanied britt to see a home for rent...so much of summer has been spent in lowes, i find myself contemplating my next nail polish color in the paint dept., and finding the next inspiration from the magazines i look thru while pushing carts..inspirations like hip west elm in atlanta...ck it here

went to west coast on sunday via motorcycle...
hot ride!! stopped in crystal river (known for crystal clear waters, manatees and the nuclear plant) wanted to see inglis (ok, seen that...now where?) rode thru yankeetown and found a tiny town freshly taken over by gov. jeb bush...battles over land development left the city government in wreckage. stopped to talk to a local businessman along water...he explained city hall as run by "good ole' boys..the kind that make you disappear" yikes! development will come folks...you can hardly stop it...
overheard at crackers resturant in crystal river:
customer to waitress: i'll have the turtle soup.....and make it snappy!
