What You Find Out Wandering The Neighborhood

11 May

Today I slept late until around 9 and I’m having a little trouble remembering what I did after that. I know I was on the internet a little bit. Hmmm…

Good thing I started taking that yummy Omega-3 formula. I hear it’s good for your brain cells. Just got it yesterday so I’m sure it probably has a cumulative effect after a couple months or so. I wasn’t kidding about the yummy part. I like the Lime sorbet flavor. Anyway…

After doing “something” when I got up, I went out for just a little while to check out garage sales and check in with people I’ve met at garage sales in recent weeks. George on Rock Springs wasn’t home, but Alice over near Borden was there. After her big dog barked up a storm we chatted for a couple minutes about potential fundraising for a non-profit. She’s a manager for Community Catalysts of California. Read about that in my April 20 post.

Finally I ran into Maria and Maria Elena(?) on Palomar and someone’s little one, Samantha, sold me some oranges. I told Samantha that she had the same name as my niece, who graduated from SDSU, and who wants to be a doctor.

They told me that next week the homes in Vallecitos are all having garage sales at the same time. And they didn’t have any coins for me.

Hopefully we can have an even bigger “Garage Sale Day” in late September or early October. Right now the voting is leaning heavily towards October 5.

If you would like to participate, please contact me on Facebook or give me a call. Or you can leave me a comment on this post with your phone number and a good time to call you. You can find MY number on my Facebook public figure page. Check the right side of this blog or follow this link.

Who wants to help me coordinate this? Or the potluck? I mentioned that last week.

You’re just going to have to scroll down and find that post!

Almost forgot!

I spoke with Guillermo Cortes at Mr. Taco this morning when my wife and I were having breakfast there. THAT’S what I did before 11! LOL

He is the owner of Mr. Taco and if you don’t know where it is, it’s across from Cal State San Marcos in the same shopping center as Ralph’s, the UPS store, Pet People, Prime Cut Grill and so much more.

You might remember what I call “The World’s Smallest Newsletter!” – Neighborly Suggestions. It’s small enough to fit on your refrigerator. Refrigerator Ready!

Issue #2 is coming out soon and on the back will be something from Mr. Taco. I think it’s going to be a coupon. I don’t know if it will be ready for next Saturday, but I’ll be knocking on your door soon.

You’ll be neighborly when I come to your door, right?

Thinking About Neighborhood

8 Apr

My guess is that nearly everyone wants their neighborhood to be a great neighborhood, no matter how they define great neighborhood. There is more than one way to define neighborhood and neighbor.

We can also have neighborly connections with people who don’t live quite so close. Andre Stevens-Thomas is one of those people with whom I have a growing “neighbor” connection even though he doesn’t live in San Marcos.

He and I got together months ago and discussed a book I mentioned in an earlier post. That book is “In The Neighborhood” by Peter Lovenheim and right now you can get it on Kindle for under $6.00 – In The Neighborhood.

Andre is quite a musical talent and right now he’s working on an album and probably will be in the studio on and off for several months. Here’s his website:

He’s having lunch with me at Mr. Taco near Cal State San Marcos in a couple weeks.

Who else wants to get together with me for lunch?
