There is a place EXACTLY like that in town.. They call it Peterson's. It's been here for, gawd, over 20 years. They sell produce, plants/flowers, baked goods.. you name it. They used to be just a seasonal place, but now it's open year-round

This one just close up about a month or so ago. The old man who owned it got really sick & couldn't do it any more. I have talked to some people around town & they say it has always done pretty good business. It would be great if I could afford it. I'm afraid to ask what they want for it though. I don't want to set myself up for a disappointment.

Well, if you ever did decide to do something like that, you could start small. Don't get ahead of yourself too fast. That's how this place started. And... I remember a place starting out as a hotdog stand... it's now a fine-dining restaurant.. same people own it.

I'll keep that in mind. Maybe one day it will happen. I really like the idea of being my own boss & being able to set my own hours & stuff like that.

It's always interesting to see how our heritage and geographical areas affect what we eat. Most of the "breakfasts" I read about here I would have fed to my parrot (when I had him.. had to give him up.. another story)...

I grew up in a little logging/fishing town on the ocean in Oregon... and there EVERY breakfast started with a huge plate of hash brown.. then you figured out what else went with the hashbrowns, e.g. how your THREE eggs were going to be cooked, and whether you were having bacon, ham, or sausage.

(Yes, most restaurants there serve 3 eggs with breakfast.. it's fun to take a visitor to breakfast and when they order "bacon & eggs over easy" and get three eggs, they tell the waitress they didn't order THREE eggs.. and the waitress looks at them like they are a visitor from another planet and says, "well we can't take it back, don't eat it then!" :)

And here in Seattle, in my sailing group anyway, none of us eat "bird food" for breakfast...if you're going to crank u the sails and spend the morning on the water, you need something "substantial"! Sure, we had pancakes or "flap jacks" or.. but nothing got the engine running as well as a huge plate of hashbrowns, sourdough toast, and eggs;/bacon/ham, etc.

I don't eat like that any more because *sigh* as ya gets older.. I/we have to kinda sorta watch the weight thing... but I still often times bake a couple extra potatoes to use for hashbrowns if/when I cook at home.. or I frequent a couple of "greasy spoon" type restaurants down at the harbor when I dock my boat... If a breakfast doesn't have at least 2,000 calories and 60 grams of fat.. it ain't breakfast!

Bird feed is okay for a snack at lunch though... it sharpens one's appetite for the chicken fried steak or steamed dungenss crab with melted butter with french fries for dinner.
