Apparently I saw my shadow on New Year’s Eve, which meant six more weeks of no blogging.
Then I got the flu — DO NOT GET THE FLU. This year’s flu has been widespread and unusually virulent, and the shot isn’t working so well. Mrs. Me got the shot, and then she got the flu anyway, and then she gave the flu to me. But I can’t use that as an excuse for six weeks of no blogging. Maybe a week, tops. That was early January; I’m better now.
But there’s really not been that much to blog about, especially Wheaton-wise. We haven’t been eating out all that much. Royal Mile Pub closed, to the surprise of few. After the ownership issues from a few years ago, it hadn’t been quite the same quality. Taco Loco is still “coming soon” (right?).
Safeway continues to be pretty empty, even before the most recent storm when most grocery stores would have been teeming with emergency purchasers. Also, Safeway has a guy in the parking garage taking photos of all the cars’ license plates — what’s up with that? I don’t like it. I assume they would say it’s for security reasons (I have been meaning to ask a manager but never seem to remember at the right time), but to me it’s a huge invasion of privacy and kind of creepy.
Cowgirl Creamery closed downtown, sad although probably good for my cholesterol. Ashby Inn is still very good but not as good as it used to be. This winter has just been bad all around. I am so ready for April. But maybe I won’t wait until April to post more…
