Foo bar

Remember a couple of weeks ago when it was nice on Saturday? When the sun was out, it was warm, and it didn't rain?

Yeah, those were good times.

We took advantage of that day to explore our new neighborhood a little more. We moved in last fall and spent most of the winter doing fix up projects around the house. But on that day, that glorious, sunny spring day, we headed over to Foo's Fabulous Frozen Custard in the Ranchmart Shopping Center for an afternoon refreshment.

I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. The mom & pop shop has two locations now (the original is in Brookside). The Ranchmart location has the feel of an old-timey neighborhood ice cream parlor, but it has the look of a modern franchise, from the kewl coffee house d├ęcor to the flat-screen TV to the impressive and well-used meeting places.

What impressed me most was the traffic. There were lots of people there. Singles, couples, families and groups. Some popping in for a to-go order, others enjoying the beautiful day on the sidewalk, still others in book clubs or study groups in the back room.

It made me feel like I might be in what passes for a small town in these parts.
