I’m always looking for “signs” and ways to experience The Good Life in my everyday travels. Sometimes it takes some work, but on Monday it was easy. First I got to be “Rodeo Queen for a Day” at DeTro’s Western store in Riverside, Washington and immediately following that I was literally overwhelmed by signs when I crossed the street and took a stroll through the Riverside Grocery & Antiques.
Signs, signs, everywhere signs of The Good Life. Let me share just a few of them that I found in Riverside Grocery. They each have a message but I added my own message, what “sign” I read from them…
Recently the local radio station has been playing the song Good Life by One Republic quite a bit. I love the fact that the DJ has shared with her audience that her 5 yr-old son sings this song. What a great thing – a child, singing about the Good Life!
The photos are from a tiny little convenience store-gas station in Riverside just 6 miles north of Omak, Washington. The owner, Kim Nagy found her way out her many years ago from the Midwest and with her she obviously brought her wonderful sense of humor. It’s in every little nook and cranny in her shop.
What took me there? A Very Nice Businessman in Okanogan, Washington. He’s suggested many places for me to go and explore in the valley and highlands, and none of which are places to hike, explore, or take landscape photos. They’ve all been places of community. Hmm…something I’ve been searching for on this long wanderabout.
Elisabeth Kubler Ross, the pioneer of the hospice movement, encouraged people to get rid of the “fluff” in their lives. For those who find it difficult to do this, there is a place to take that fluff, whether it comes deep from within your pockets or in your belly button – right here in Riverside.
Riverside Grocery & Antiques is located at 102 N. Main Street in Riverside, Washington, just north of Omak. The phone number is 509.826.2049. More antiques will be coming in spring. A great place to fill your tank with the best priced gas around, pick up a soda, or an ice cream, and find signs of The Good Life.
