05/August/2017 - On The First Day, We Went ...... Shopping!

It was the first day of Old Grump's retirement, so what did we do?  We went shopping, of course!

We all squeezed into Sweetie's car, and made the long drive around Atlanta to the Buford Highway Farmers Market.  (A bit of trivia: this market, along with the various H-Marts nearby, are owned and/or run by Koreans.)

Dodong, Sweetie, and Kuya jammed into the back seat of Sweetie's car

Lola was the navigator

Hi Kuya!

Hi Dodong!

One of the great things about the Buford Highway Farmers Market is that they have lots and lots and lots of tea!  Before our website was nuked by the accursed Bluehost, we had lots and lots and lots of tea for sale too.  Grump is trying to rebuild the Tea Universe site, but it's slow going.

More Tea

And More Tea

And More, More Tea!

Tea, Tea, Tea!!

Good Grief, MORE TEA!!

In the seafood section, there are some live crayfish.

Watch those pinchers!

We ate lunch in the Farmers Market cafeteria.

Back home, we cleaned and sorted our purchases.

Rambutans, Lychees, and Longans

Lychees, longans, and rambutans look similar once peeled, and to Grump's mind at least taste similar.  ("Like a poor grape," he likes to say, much to Sweetie's disgust.)  Of the three I suppose longans are the best, but different folks have different favorites.

Sweetie, Grump, and Lola each had two yummy mangosteens.  This was all we could afford, as these little guys are very, very expensive!

After dinner, we took Kuya and Dodong to a nearby school so they could practice riding their bikes.  Kuya is still trying to get the hang of it; Dodong gave up rather quickly, and opted to romp on the playground instead.
