Not really. SLO is San Luis Obispo. I live about 20 minutes from there. Because most of the towns in SLO County are relatively small, certain items require a drive over the Cuesta Grade to SLO. It is a beautiful town, home to Cal Poly, good restaurants, and a great downtown. *Insert photo of our favorite trattoria*
We always sit at the table by the window, over by where the orange sign is standing.
Anyway, I have had a MacBook Pro for a year or less, in addition to my iMac which I LOVE. I use both of them, really I do. The power cord on the MacBook stopped working and I realized the wires inside had broken where the end had pulled apart. Ack. Off to SLO today, after I rode my horse and filled the truck with gas ($3.88/gal). There are 2 places in SLO to buy Apple products. I don't generally like to go downtown in my truck unless I have to, due to parking, so I decided the Mac Superstore would be easier than the Apple store. I drove there.
It was closed. It had relocated to the south end of SLO where all the big superstores are now residing. Costco, BIG A$$ Target, etc. etc. I drove there. When I pulled into the parking lot, it was one of those lots we have in California where 90% of the thousands of spaces are for compact cars. And now 5% are for parking electric vehicles as they will have recharging stations (great idea). I'm not sure where the 5% are that will fit a Ford truck. So I went around the side and took 2 parking spaces.
I got into the store....very nice new store.....and asked about the replacement power cord. $69.99!!!! With tax, out the door for $75.00 and suddenly not liking my MacBook at all. I wanted to stop for a nice lunch but after spending $100 to fill my truck with gas and $75 for a new power cord, I went to Von's instead for a few groceries. Here's what I have to show for my not so quick trip to SLO. It says Super Buy. I don't think so.
Yep, this is how I look during the day. My hair was messy from being outside taking care of animals and if you see my sissy, tell her I am NOT putting on lip gloss for a quick snapshot on a busy day like this. Ha! She's too busy with company this week to care anyway:-)
Besides that, it was a very nice day. I hope yours was too.
