wishing

Back from our short stint into the States.  We  had damp weather, some rain, not much, but I had a new experience that had me talking to myself and the strangers around me, who were wondering about my state of mind,  Although I have seen the signs, as we have driven by other locations in the States, I have never before stopped and gone in.

What I was wishing was that I had thought to whip out my camera and take a picture.  I missed the moment, because I was   totally awed by the sight of wall to wall cartons of cigarettes.  When we drove in, we did see the long and I mean long line of cars, driving up to the “take out” window.  Still I was unprepared for the sight that greeted me when I walked in.

I have never seen that many  different kinds of cigarettes, it was so well-organized, a whole wall of cigarettes, with people channeled through lines so that they went through designated lines picked out what they wanted, and then followed the queue to the cashier.  The lines are well-defined, keeping the buyers between metal type fencing,  Once in the lineup, you have no where else to go but follow the buyer in front of you.

It was amazing how efficient they were at getting customers in and out.  No being a smoker, it was like watching a foreign film  No smoking inside but the air outside was blue with smoke.

Life offers us new experiences when we least expect it.  I went in there for information on the Native territory we were on, but was so “blown away” with what I did find… I left, without the needed information, and didn’t care.  I had  a super “holy smokes artichokes” WOW moment.

I wish I could have given you a visual, wishing won’t make it so… but believe me… I was thrilled…. (ok ok, it doesn’t take much.. I know.. =^_^=  )  If you are ever in the NY,Onadaga area… have a look…

Tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday… and yup I did get great picture to share, I liked it enough to holler…stop the truck!!

PL (Perfect Liberty) lesson of the day >Willingly Take on Tasks That are Behind the Scenes <   Be the one who is able to proactively take on the troublesome tasks that no one likes and for which they are not recognized.  by doing so you will be filled with a genuine feeling of accomplishment.

Yesterday I was on a road trip with a dear friend, we took to the highway with a simple goal, a day away.  We were blessed with wonderful weather, the bluest of skies and good roads. Crossing over into the States was quick, no long line ups, and we easily found the way to the places we had more or less decided to explore. The for sure destination was the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort for the noon hour buffet special.

Yes, those are big honking coconut breaded shrimps you see on top, and Yes i did take a picture of the dessert plate, and NO, I’m now showing you.  Suffice to say it was very good, and totally enjoyed.  For those wondering where all the greens were, they were in the car, we munched  on raw sugar snap peas and other veggies as we drove along.  No chips or junk food for us.

night, coast line

The whole day was one moment of living after another, we enjoyed the sights along the way, the company, the experience, we meandered , rested, and traveled again.  Home at a reasonable hour, tired but  happy…. that is what I call.. a holiday, =^_^=
