WPC: Signs (Jazz band and Speedy)

I went to the store to buy some Aztec clay

different bulk clays for sale

I saw “street sign” furniture along the way

table made out of recycled signs tables made from old signs


Then I met Speedy, who was willing to say “Hey…”


While some musicians were wrapping up informal play…

musicians out to play


here is a short video I made:


I hope you have a nice day-

  1. This story and video combine so many great things – environmentalism, jazz, friendly people, beautiful surroundings – and that little girl is totally adorable! 🙂


  2. Why Aztec clay? Is there a better way? That place is far away. That jazz band could play! Will they be back another day? “Maybe,” you say? Have to run, can’t stay!


    1. thanks for dropping by – and I love your rhyming reply – and the store is close – but I only started going there again this year because their prices have dropped a lot – and they used to be more expensive than “Whole Paycheck” – I mean Whole foods – ha!

      And even though I still get most of my stuff from Lucky Vitamin (love my Lucky Vitamin) I ran out of Sonne’s #7 clay and so I called to see if Ellewood Thompson’s had any in stock. Well the lady, Jessi, did not see it (cos they did have it) but she talked me into trying some Redmond Clay and told me they had Aztec clay too – and offered to put both on hold for me and I actually have been wanting to try both for baths.

      I mention this because it is another example of how superb customer service is not only what brought me there, but kept me there as she also showed us bulk clays, etc. The husb. and I were talking about how this is what makes a successful business – drop the prices to be more competitive and hire people that can “represent” and bring customers back!

      Ok Conner – now I am a goner… bye


    1. Hi Sue! Well I actually posted the photos of Speedy and the tables just in case the video is blocked or does not play – so one get the essence of the video – just imagine a little jazz music playing (**** 😎 ***)


    1. ha – and actually this was serendipitous again – I only had a phone camera and was not really even thinking blog! But when I saw the sign tables I remembered the WPC is signs this week – and it all unfolded from there. The smiling guy in the corner was the gem of the night for me – and I regret not recording him more… but I am still learning with all this street footage here. Thanks again Zee ❤

  3. How could I not have a nice day,
    After stopping off this way.
    I liked listening to them play,
    You too, HAVE A GREAT DAY!
    Oh, and I ‘stole’ your idea about imbedding a pic into a comment, from, I think Sylvia’s blog. Thank you for the instruction. I figured since you put it out there, you wouldn’t mind. Hope this works. 😉



    1. oh very cool – and I see you also are a rhyming foo (wink)
      and I love the embedded shot- and that’s cool cartoon you’ve got…
      thanks for stopping by first and fabulous one
      because your comment and pic brought some funnnnnn


    1. well actually I love the easy-simple- fun kind of rhyming (as you can tell from my output) and so I think we have similar stuff – and you are right – on our outing there was no shouting or pouting… but finding the signs led to some scouting and then a bit of “recrouting” as we veered off path to meet Speedy – where there was no flouting and no doubting that I had to get a photo of him! ha!

      Have a great day Linda ❤

  4. Fantastic post. This made my day. People of all sorts living life. Cheerful music playing, pumpkins ready for fall, children in delight, love and happiness. And, then you found “Speedy!” A huge SMILE to my face. What is not to L.O.V.E???? Please send him a great big hug from me. 🙂 🙂


    1. Thanks and I will – because I hope to see him again – and he was gone when we left the store and that is how I found out the employees loved him so much – but thanks for your visit and nice comment – ❤ ❤


      1. Oh, I hope you do see him again! I can see why the employees love him so much. Nothing but ‘cheer’ from him while loving life. How it should be for everyone. Bless you. 🙂


    1. Thanks Indah – and it may “too much” for the photo challenge – like maybe a picture of the cool tables would have sufficed – but it just happened so fast and then I hit publish – ha! have a great week


    1. Hi – well clay is amazzzzzing for skin. And even teens can use it for pore cleansing. But clay is also powerful for digestive cleansing – and Sonne’s brand of bentonite clay is the best (here) because Sonne’s #7 is a bentonite clay that has the mica removed – and it is nicely priced too!

      but I guess the Redmond clay is also safe for internal use – I think I am going to post about clay very soon – I will be sure to drop by your blog to let you know when I do – but it is such a natural cleanser for everything – – oh – and if taken internally it should be taken with psyllium fiber to move it along – but THE CLAY ACTS LIKE A MAGENT to draw out toxins, heavy metals, parasites, microbes, etc. and then once you are done, you have to add some good flora back in – 🙂 have a nice day gilly ❤


      1. Here is the info from Sonne’s:

        They “use a special process to refine the raw bentonite clay to remove mica, dirt and other impurities, in order to concentrate the active detoxifying ingredient, montmorillonite (“mont-mor-ill-o-nite”). This procedure places montmorillonite into a colloidal suspension and retains its innate negative charge. These properties allow the powerful adsorption (physical binding) of positively charged substances. (Most metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes are positively charged.) Montmorillonite possesses the ability to adsorb about 40 times its own weight in positively charged substances present in the alimentary canal. Because montomorillonite has such strong adsorptive properties and is not digested, it tightly binds material to be excreted –


    1. Thanks Pomme – and it really is a cool store – a few things are still over priced – but on many products they have become more reasonable – like the sonne’s clay – we can get at Lucky vitamin for 15 something – and they used to seek it for 25 – but then this year – I wanted to take some again and dropped by there to see – and they now seek it for 20 – which is reasonable.

      oh – and the store also has live music out front on different days – 🙂 thanks for dropping by 🙂 ❤ ❤
