A Night on the Town

[ Today's meme is courtesy of Thursday Threesome ]
Onesome: Night: -- Nights can be difficult if you need something from somewhere: what time do the stores shut down where you are? I mean, if you needed something more than a loaf of bread, is there any hope late at night?

Twosome: on the: -- River? Hey, are there any rivers near you? ...or are you located out in the wilderness somewhere?

Threesome: Town! -- If you could have any "Night on the Town" you wanted, what would you like to do? ...and would you like some company or would you go it alone?

We are "blessed" with both worlds. We have the really good favorite grocery store with the specatcular produce department and the excellent service that closes at 8 pm weekdays, 7:30 on Sundays. We have several 7-11s for the occasional late-night loaf of bread, carton of milk, or pint of ice cream, provided you aren't tooo picky about brand. We also have a couple of all-night large chain grocery stores. The latter will sell you milk, bread and ice cream, as well as cereal, meat, real baked goods, canned goods, beer, vitamins, paper products or almost anything else on your weekly list at any hour of the day or night. You can even buy something that they will call a "tomato" but I wouldn't advise doing so.

I can't think where our nearest river is... the Russian River up in Sonoma County? We have various creeks that occasionally get to (small) river sized during a major storm, though none are very near us. However, we are only a couple of miles (as the seagull flies) over the ridge from the ocean; several more miles by road and car. And we're one mile north of the upper end of a lovely chain of real and artificial lakes with a nice walking trail and that wilderness you mentioned.

Threesome: Town! --

Our idea of a "night on the town" is a good dinner out with friends, followed by returning home and reading for a bit before a leisurely soak in the hot tub and then to bed. We're not party people.
