Artesian Well -- ♦ Lot between 4th and 5th
I picked up E at 7:20 and took her to her tournament. C.C.* called me at 4 and I tootled along and picked her up. They came in second -- won the first but the second team was faster C.C.* said. We went to Long's to get her prescription, disposable cameras for camp, and I got cane tips that I thought were the correct size, but which, sadly are too large. I was forgetting it gets smaller -- I reckon. Then I dropped E off. Kind of overheated, although I wouldn't've been quite as bad without the immediate toe smash/rug clean. Guess I'll clean the other floor later.
Got my water at the artesian well downtown -- can't drink mine, as it comes from the lake. I like the well, and the well culture. It's usually very busy -- sometimes I leave before filling my jugs. The water is very good, and free, and at the moment it's nice and BASIC as I like things -- although there is a move afoot to cap this well and open another in a yet undisclosed but die-yuppie-scum-type environment of plantings and benches and nearness to the farmer's market. Ptui. Back in the Olden Days, when I'd just come here, the (real) farmer's market was at the Darigold on Plum Street (maybe Saturdays?), and there was one in Lacey at the drive-in on Sleater Kinney. Other weird old businesses I remember as I patronised them: The Gnu Deli (on Capitol Way -had good stew), Say Cheese (on Plum Street), Uncle Bob's Sandwich House (a big house with sandwiches named for various caped-crusaders, and you could eat and read something from their bookcases), Bradshaw's Avanti dealership (Pacific Ave), oh, actually now I'm bored as there're too many to list.
Camp starts tomorrow, so I will pick E up at 9 and take her to Cascade. I bought her sunscreen yesterday -- well, no, I didn't buy it -- I told her to buy it. Camp has snuck up on me as I believe it's mid-July.
Worrying about my brother.
