Not much to say lately.  There's nothing going on worth telling about.  I think I've come down with a case of writer's block.  Oh, wait-  mom and dad have been talking excitedly about the new Trader Joe's that just opened up down the road.
     I think they're going to go today to check it out.  Their (probably more dad than mom) enthusiasm for this momentous occasion is matched only by their reaction over the arrival of the new phone books.  Seems someone needs a life if you ask me.
     Lately, they've taken to going to the local Whole Foods, usually on Saturdays, and dad's excitement at the thought of sampling cheeses, guacamole, and other interesting-sounding things they have displayed throughout the store is on a level with when he got a raise.  Or had his first child.  Or won the lottery.  Okay, the lottery thing I made up.
     I can tell he's bubbling over with excitement, hoping that Trader Joe's will have similar offerings.  Pretty pathetic, huh? 
     This, mind you, from someone whose idea of exciting is licking his own butt, getting up and turning around two or three times, and laying back down in the exact same position he was in previously and falling back to sleep.  (I'm talking about me, not dad, in case it sounded confusing)

Trader Joe's is FABULOUS!! OMG! Wait til they try their snacks, their cookies, and they have the BEST frozen salmon!

The only thing that isn't the best there is the produce.

Trader Joe's is TONS less expensive than Whole Foods and the unique selection is to DIE FOR! Let us know what you thought of it!

Mommy calls Whole Foods Whole Paycheck, but she agree that the selection is To Die For.

TJ's totally rocks and they have the BEST candy--according to Mommy. WE like their tuna cat food.

Trader Joe's carries some wonderful items which have become staples in our house: corn relish/salsa, petite frozen peas, frozen tarte aux champignons, TJ brand greek yogurt,........ we could go on and on. They have so many great frozen items which they offer as samples every day!! Our mom used to go there a lot because she worked nearby, but now she makes a run every couple of months for the staples. We haven't tried their cat fudz, but maybe we should try the tuna.
