Thistle Down Dredge Drawer 2.0

Today I took the last picture that would so tie up the photographic story of the construction of a new improved Rite Aid here in Susanville, California. The time frame of the demolition and then the all inclusive construction took an overall 9 months. 

Go figure. 

Death of the old, and birth of the new. Of course, indeed, it took awhile for the death of the old Rite Aid but its rebirth I should say, took the categorical nine months. Doesn't make it human though. Only in some other metrics of a body politic so-to-speak.

Two Steps Forward to Two Point Oh!

It's been way too long since I've visited this dredge drawer with any intent to pull one off. A post. So, since there is no better way to do so than just busting it out, here I go. After all, it is Spring. Time for renewal and growth. Therefore this now is the beginning of: Thistledown Dredge Drawer 2.0.

Poster Posting!

To resupply my edibles, it's necessary for me to either jump on the local bus or simply walk to the grocery store. Most often than not, I opt for simple. It takes less than 15 minutes using my Marrowbones and me feets as I pick them up and put them down. It's also simple exercise. Since I'm able to walk, I do so. That's also simple. Well, when it comes down to the use it or lose it dynamic. Not to be simple, but walking is a means of transportation. Quite honestly, many people do not use that means. Understandably for sure but that's another subject not of this pull.

Approximately 60% of my life has been 'transported' by cycling whenever I need to get from point A to point B. Seriously. As to the other 14 years the majority of it can simply be divided between walking and driving to and from wherever. True dat.

When I moved into my apartment here at Eskaton Lassen Manor, I so knew that I had to give up my truck or otherwise I believed I would deteriorate - atrophy - the use of my legs. The riding decreased from about 2011 what with my arthritic condition. So self-preservation took hold of me, or I of it - six of these, half dozen of - you get it, right!

Well, not to drag this pull of the drawer out any further, walking to Safeway and the other stores in the Sierra Shopping Center I walk down Main Street or its crazed other half identity, Highway 36, and at Johnstonville Road, I cross and in between Highway 36 and the Jack-in- Box there's a trail cutting through to a footbridge delivering the walker or bicycle rider, skateboarder, onto the paved parking lot of the center.

And here's the greenbelt that I go through. Which, when I do, I follow the herd. How ever many of them may have gone by recently or in the past. Crossing the bridge there have been raccoon tracks spotted by no sight of the creatures themselves. I find peace passing through here for sure, however brief.
