Halloween Decorations In The 'Hood

Took a walk around the block to check out the seasonal decor, seems more spooky and less pumpkin-y this year.

Ran into a neighbor out walking her dog and asked what her twin girls are going to be for Halloween.

      Neighbor:  One is going as a Minion and the other wants to be a hot chocolate server.

I found this to be hilarious.

     Me:  Have you been spending a lot of time at Starbucks?

     Neighbor, laughing:  I guess we have.

When you are young, the gal presenting you with a chocolatey beverage topped with whipped cream is every bit as impressive and revered as Princess Elsa from Frozen.

Or a Minion for that matter!

Green Acre

There is an old television series with Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor and the theme song starts with:

Green Acres is the place to be
Farm livin' is the life for me 

And that is the tune that goes through my head when I step from the parking lot in the middle of this industrial park in San Diego and head up the path to an organic vegetable garden and corporate eatery called Green Acre.

And if all of that is not enough to entice you, there are SWINGS, indoors…..right across from the elevators.

If I worked in one of these buildings I would probably swing every day before heading to my desk.

After ordering a bowl of oatmeal and cherries from the cafe!

Green Acre.

It is the place to be.
