Phillip and I spent an enjoyable afternoon at Bud and Beni’s house in Shoreline. Bud performed with Cowbell West in the back yard. There was also a jazz band, which I never did learn the name of. (Cowbell West and the jazz band shared one member.) I didn’t know the majority of the people at the party, but that didn’t matter. I had a great time.
We brought a dozen Top Pot doughnuts to the party. There was plenty of food and drink.
After spending four hours at the party, Phillip and I said our goodbyes. On the way home, we stopped into the Target at Northgate. Phillip needed to buy some decongestants, sunscreen, and a cushion for his rocking chair.
The pharmacy at Target was closed. (It was a little past 6:30 on a Saturday.) We were surprised by that. We could find neither sunscreen nor a cushion for the rocker.
A Target employee that Phillip asked didn’t seem to know what sunscreen is. He changed his request to “UV protection”, and she understood. But she didn’t know if the store sold UV protection.
Phillip bought some socks and a pirate octopus pillow at Target. Then we drove to the Walgreens up the street.
The employee at Walgreens did know what sunscreen is, and led us to the correct aisle. Phillip, however, was unprepared for how expensive the stuff is. ($10 for SPF 90, $12 for SPF 100!) He decided to wear a long-sleeved shirt and a wide-brimmed hat when we’re out on the waterfront on Friday.
The pharmacy at Walgreens was also closed.
Phillip and I bought soft drinks and potato chips at Walgreens. Then we drove home and watch another couple of episodes of Max Headroom.
