In lieu of legitimate birthday offerings, have some Impala pictures! We visited my grandparents over the winter holidays; they live in the Middle of Nowhere, California, which is fifteen miles from a small town called Larkfield. It's one of those towns where like, there's the one diner, and all the waitresses know my grandparents and their orders by heart; once they even returned some extra change they'd forgotten the week previously! We stopped there for burgers and had ridiculous issues with our dumb car. And the entire diner helped us out! XP Not gonna lie, I was kind of getting 1x07 "Scarecrow" vibes! But there you go--authentically strange little town.
Anyway, while we were in the parking lot, my brother said, "Look! An Impala!" Sure enough, clear across the parking lot, a lovely two-door black Impala! I met the owner when she was on a smoke break; she works at the veterinary clinic next to the diner. There was a baby seat in the back of her car and d'awww it was adorable.
And gratuitous doggie picture from the same trip:
I miss you all!
