Killer Pizza From Mars

.
Who can resist?


I especially like the sign inside that says "Unattended children will be sold as slaves." Not exactly politically correct or subtle. BTW, they serve really good NY style pizza. Why you Chicagoans [dons flame retardant suit] want to eat a lump of dough, I have no idea. I like mine with Mushrooms, Pepperoni, and Anchovies...and beer....

Where is that, Karen (intersection, I mean)?

This particular one is in Escondido near the 15 and the 78. They have a sci-fi theme. [Duh! ;-D]

The DigiHusband is an Escondido boy! He likes to drive by the Arco station and point out Pump #3 to the kids, because that was where his childhood bedroom was (the land was purchased and the house torn down long after he left home).

Sadly, Escondido was a STEP UP for his family - prior to that, it was five people living in a 720 square foot singlewide. (Anyone who KNOWS Escondido will KNOW how meaningful if is to say it was a "step up" from your prior living arrangement)

You'd be surprised at how much it's changed a good friend of mine lives up there off Country Club road. So much of the poorer quality housing has been torn down, and there's neighborhoods that weren't even their 10 years ago. When I was in high school in the early 70s a group of use used to take turns hosting poker parties at each other's houses. One of the kids lived up on the outskirts of Escondido in a sprawling ranch house. It was a fun adventure just getting there. Right about where the HOV lane starts (up by Miramar) was where the 15 didn't even EXIST. You'd get on the old 395. Two lane county highway in each direction. One of my poker buddies who was also a red blooded male and his buddy Ed (the one in Escondido) had been out target practicing in the backcountry and when they'd come into some local dinner they still had their non-conceal pistols on their ammo belts. PErfectly legal, and as far as I know still is. It was country enough still that no one particularly turned an eye, though it was a little unusual even then. It was fairly late, around 11 and there were some off duty cops in their chatting with them and they wondered if they were in a training academy or whatnot ... because there were/are particular laws on what you could and couldn't do. Cali. should really go to concealment okay, because frankly it's safer and fewer people would trip if people understood how many people really could be "packing." It's mroe realistic, and if the crims don't know who's packing they're not so likely to shoot up a bar or something.

But oh, back inthe day. You could put a lounge chair in the middle of Grand and not cause too much of a traffic blockage.

Yesterday I went out for a drive on Del Dios Highway through Rancho Santa fe. (**** the ARabs, it's been ages since I took a scenic route anywhere) and it was fun seeing Lake Hodges, because from the 15 it's "over yonder beyond them their hills." I might post it later just for yucks. Especially your hubby being an Escondido boy. And come to think of it that makes AA an Escondido boy too...so that tears it .. I'll have to do it for both.
