Life is good. I am here in beautiful Idaho near my son's family where grandpa comes in handy. Last Thursday my daughter-in-law Jennifer had to attend class for her work and needed someone to watch after Ellery. Well, need I say anymore? I immediately volunteered for the mission.

Jennifer brought Ellery by about 8:00 AM and after giving her a few minutes to get used to the idea that mom wasn't there anymore she and I headed down to my favorite coffee shop, Carolyn's Wild West Bakery and Espresso in Meridian. Of course she was a smash hit.

Carolyn's Wild West Bakery and Espresso is one of those unique places that has a personality. It is located inside an old Zamzows grain store which is located inside a still working feed mill. But what really gives the coffee shop personality is all the cowboy and cowgirl nick nacks all over the place. It is a really cozy place with couches, easy chairs and lots of tables and chairs.

In fact it in a sort of way reminds me of Foggy's Notion Bar which was located in San Diego. When I first knew the place it was named "That Place Across the Street from the Sports Arena." It was a huge building which could hold hundreds of people on multiple levels that had everything under the sun that was either hanging from the ceiling, plastered to the wall or setup against the wall. There was not a square inch of space that wasn't covered by something, post cards, business cards, photos, movie posters etc. There was even a fully assembled fire truck and horse carriage  from the early 1900's hanging from the ceiling! Even the tables were covered with stuff then clear coated over. It was a truly amazing place. Unfortunately, some years ago it was plowed under and the location is now a parking lot near a Target store.

Anyway, back to my time with Ellery. We took pictures of Ellery setting in a horse saddle and exploring all the neat things they had. She even found a Kermit The Frog.

Our plan after leaving Carolyn's Wild West Bakery and Espresso was to go back to my place and take a nap then over to the Boondocks which is a game place for little kids and us big kids. But Jennifer's class was over early and she came back before the nap was over.

Grandpa had to let her go home but I was pleased that she didn't want to go home. It surprised Jennifer too. It seems Ellery is always ready to go home with her parents. Well Ellery and I will be together alone again this Saturday.  We will plan to go to the Boondocks this time.

Life is good when you are a Traveling Webmaster and a GrandPa!
