I was talking to friends about our "favorite jobs ever!" Mine was working at a liquor store in "The Thumb" of Michigan. My friends could come in and play guitar, carry on a board game AND I got to chop wood and load ice.
I want to mention Mrs. Bridget Childs and say that, as a 20-something, she really did excellent in running this store. Bridget was skilled in stocking, managing and marketing her liquor store. Unfortunately, the store was in a lousy location--not close enough to any town to catch the business needed to keep a beach liquor store open.
I did get this job after dressing up nicely and askng for a job at every store in a 20 mile radius. Sometimes, knocking door to door will get you inside.
This is from when I got to do the sign, circa 1998.. And our friend, Mary, who worked at the state park. Before she ran away to Spain :)
...and this is the old truck, that drove me to Cali and back more than a few times...and taught me the gentle art of Christmas Eve hitch-hiking. (...yeah, to home. More than once)
and a wee bit of super simple enchilada. This is quickly modified tomato sauce, along with some refried beans and 5 minutes of our precious time.
Perhaps I am beating a dead horse, mais j'ai dit TAVO prends tout est pour toi.Y deseo que hablo español.. and regardless of all, here is what I was into in 1998
