While that restaurant has bitter sweet memories for me (and believe me, I do remember EVERYTHING), this post is not about TGI Fridays. I’m literally thanking God, or Buddha, or my ancient aliens creators that it’s fah-reekin’ FRIDAY! Whoo hoo! Nam Myoho Renge Kyo! Man, I tell ya’, it was one rough week for me at the office. So many deadlines, so little time. Such is the life when you work in advertising.
With that, I’ll leave you with this set of photos taken on one of my many Saturday excursions at the always INCREDIBLE KCC Farmers Market. Enjoy!
