Birds - and - Bodega. Does It Mean Anything to You?

Bodega is really just a bend in the road

Really, a "town"?  I'll let you go there yourself and decide what you think about their commitment to good food.  

In any case, it's a fun stop on the road from the Sonoma Coast and Petaluma.

With all the "Birds" memorabilia you might like to peruse.

It has a great vintage small town America vibe.

With a little junk shop, t-shirt and tchotchke store along the usual lines, a hippie-ish Japanese dressmakers....

If you think you might be fancying picking up some antique

Coke bottles with the genuine article still inside......


Or you're a sailor named "Phillips" who's planning on shipping out sometime soon and need a case for your kit..........You'll find all that too.

There may be an actual town up the hills but I didn't see it. 

This is the view that may give you the shivers.  Bodega's a little of that 

and a little bit "OMMMMMMMMMMMM!"

Next up: the Bodega Casino, the local beer hall.  Serious Americana!  Y'all come back soon now, hear?

What It Is........Summertime

Ooooohhhhhh.  So sorry for going away like that.

Here's a little of what I've been up to....

Trying to understand why squirrels only want to eat my avocado seeds and why so many others of them just want to DROP OFF!  (avocado trees are verrrrrrry sensitive, did you know that?)

Hanging out with Mr. You-Know-Who

Trying to build myself a little rockery.

Tootling around town with some of my buddies.

Eating things fresh from the garden.

(Stuffed squash blossoms in San Marzano tomato sauce.)  

DELISH!  Only the best in Summer!!!!!

I'm going to be posting only intermittently for a while.  But I'm thinking about you.  Hope you're this good with someone as cool as this guy:

Peace Out!

Few words
