We shop at Costco and Von's, but mostly at Costco, because I like having a year's supply of toilet paper and paper towels on hand.
Occasionally I go to Bristol Farms, a high end grocery store. Why? Because of the really good meat, fish and their superb bakery. How high end is Bristol Farms? Amy's organic soup is a dollar more a can than it is at Costco, Knob Creek Bourbon is 9 dollars more a bottle than it is at Von's.
One Sunday morning at 8, I was in line behind a rather bummy looking guy, long white hair sticking out from under a baseball cap, ratty sweat shirt and faded jeans. He was dressed pretty much like I was. He was having trouble with his pin number, so much so he called home and asked what it was, no luck there. I thought I recognized his voice, he turned around and it was Sam Elliot.
Sam had a pound of bacon and bottle of orange juice and he was screwed, no cash and a forgotten pin number, Sam looked at me and said 'How fucked is this?" I bought his bacon and juice for him. Shook his hand, gave him my card and I got the money back a week later.
Another time at Bristol Farms, The Cakes and I were followed by this person, up one aisle and down another.
Heather was with her Mom and daughter, Heather looked pretty rough. The next week she was arrested for DUI. We've seen Heather at Costco, too.
Here's another Bristol Farms shopper:
Richie Sambora, Heather's ex and Jon Bon Jovi's guitarist. He really looked like shit, but his Lamborghini was nice!
We used to see Lenny Dykstra all the time:
Not so much anymore:
Here is a guy who should be in jail and isn't. (I only see him at the gas station)
Angelo Mozilo, ex Country Wide CEO.
