A little taste of home

So the wife and I were out and about tonight and decided to step into the brand new World Market that just opened up. We wandered around the store looking at furniture and drapes and tea-balls enjoying ourselves. Then we came to the imported food section . . . we found treasures beyond our dreams. There was a whole section of Oregon Chai and we couldn't resist picking up a box. Then, turning the corner we found Tim's Cascade potato chips.


Now to some these may not seem that great, but these are delicacies that have been absent from our lives during our sojourn in the land of the South. We rejoiced in our bounty, and upon the discovery of more income we shall rejoice further. Sometimes it's just the little things . . .

Tastes of home are always good. It has been raining non-stop here in Salem the past few days, and I love it. Funny how you appreciate things like that after you've been gone for some time.

Hey that's funny. Tim and Oregon both in the south. What do you know.

Hope that you are having a good break--I'm sure good ole HUGSR will crank up the heat when the semester starts.

Keeping you all in prayer.

mmmm...chai.

Happy New Year! I hope you and Andrea are doing well in Memphis. We miss you out here!

Amy and Justin had their baby but I haven't heard anything from them. I got to talk with Jan. I am waiting to hear from Amy.

Can you believe ol' Timmy finally proposed? Hope to see you at the wedding.

Tabitha, can you get us a Carl's Jr and a Red Robin? Oh, the Western Bacon Cheeseburger and a Rajun' Cajun chicken sandwich with bottomless steak fries . . . *sigh*

One reason I'm stoked that it's now 2006 is that we can now say, "We plan to be back in Portland next year." (We're looking at July/August of 2007).

There is none better than Oregon Chai. Melissa, who doesn't drink coffee, has managed to turn into a Chai snob and won't drink hardly any other brand. Go, Oregon!

And what about the acclaimed Burgerville Pepper Bacon Tillamook Cheeseburger? I'd have to have them packed in dry ice and shipped to me every six months...

mmmmmmm...chai. I think I know what I'll have for lunch today. Also-- thanks for the Christmas card! You know, when you move back up here, I would like to submit Seattle as an option... :)
