Somebody’s washroom is breeding Bolsheviks again. 🧻🧼

And thar it was. Right out there on Greene Street. 😲

I’ve slapped things on traffic signal boxes before, but this one’s not mine.

tcl 10 pro camera test at country park

I slipped a SIM into a rather inexpensive (compared to some) Android mobile that I recently ordered. It doesn’t have the “horsepower” of some that I’ve had, but it runs sweetly and has a straightforward beautiful interface that I like. It has Android 11.

It is a TCL 10 Pro – T799B. Got it for $315 mainly due to TCL now releasing the 20 Pro series thus dating this 10 Pro. Price went down by $135. Original TCL 10 Pro price was $450.

I’m no expert, but the camera seems adequate to me for a “cheap” smartphone. We went out to Country Park today to goof off and take some pictures with the TCL 10 Pro. I like budget devices that actually work.

A nice thing about going budget is that you don’t have to run ’em till they drop, unless you want to. If you smash it or lose it, your life won’t be completely over.

random things that come up

I was reading what was supposed to be a professional article this morning and ran across this sentence: “Something went gunny bag with the air conditioner.”

WTF does gunny bag mean? lol

I mean write in plain language. That one just got me a little.

OK, sometimes I like to use “wonky” from time to time.

Here’s another one that still comes up sometimes and has since I was a child.

“It’s out there near Red Road.” or “Over there by the Bishop Block.”

OK, I know those places existed, but just tell me where you are talking about today. 50+ years is long enough to update.

Similarly, I am guilty of saying High Point Road still instead of Gate City Boulevard. High Point Road is where I did a lot of cruising as a teenager, so it’s rooted in that. I remember when Bob Petty’s Drive-in on HPR served me a can of beer right in my car when I was 17. “Can I have a cigarette to go with it?” lol

Just a quickie downtown today for Fun 4th in Greensboro.

biff burger greensboro has closed after 60 years

My favorite sandwich at Beef Burger (Biff Burger) was the Super Cheese dipped.

It was a really good sandwich, but they fucked it up so many times that I switched to just getting the little cheeseburgers which were called “Biffs with cheese.” They were simple and good and came dipped automatically.

Another thing I liked was that vinegar was always out on the condiment bar for the french fries.

Famous sign in the front window, “if you are drunk, eat somewhere else.”

gso observation area

The strange forlorn observation area at GSO airport.

I’m not sure I even knew it had one.

pizza and big greek salad

Vito’s take-out for me. It’s all mine.

airport parking

I had the urge to steal one of these parking meter bags from GSO airport. I imagine it would take a little more than just putting it over the meter to park for free once this ends.
