The 559

aka FRESNO.

So, our Walnut Creek office decided they didn't have enough people to staff one of their project in Fresno (~4.5 hour drive from Irvine). So, I'll be here for a couple of days (one of which will be my birthday - that should be interesting). The city has already given me a warm welcome, a police escort upon entering to be exact. To bad he had to notice my speed (84 in a 64 zone...is it my fault the Altima wanted to go faster?). Luckliy he had mercy on me and let me off with a "fix it ticket." So, I will be changing my address upon returning to the OC.

Thank goodness for friendly cops. Oh, and I'm still trying to decide what all those smells are....

P.S. Fresno just so happens to be THE place for one-stop Thrift shop, shopping. SERIOUSLY. I found 3 on one block...THREE! And 2 more in the area...I got some GREAT finds. Who'd of thought?

Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! I hear you are going to Arizona. But, Wendy and I (and of course we'll invite the rest of your posse) want to do dinner for you soon!

I still think it smells better then passing the Turkey Farm around Salina and Richfield.
