Putterin’ to Palm Springs – A Bargain Excursion

Why hello dahlings! As you can see I’ve just been on an excursion in my motor car. Took a trip on down to the Springs. Why dahlings, it was hotter than Hades down there, pardon the expression, but I did manage to take a stroll on down the drive. Palm Canyon Drive that is.

Whilst on my promenade, I decided to visit the establishment of one Josh Agle, otherwise known as Shag dahlings. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. I entered upon his retail establishment, Shag: The Store.

And, dahlings, why I could have bought out the entire inventory. But times being what they are I had to resist the urge to dig deep in my pocketbook and instead purchased a wee post card of the Welcome to Palm Springs image. One dollar, dahlings, for a frame worthy print. Why, score, if I do say so myself. If you find yourself on the Drive, stop by this young man’s establish, but keep an eye on those pocketbooks! (Wink, wink).

Now, dahlings, I always think that after a bit of commerce on should obtain a bit of culture. So I continued on down the Drive to the local museums. First stop, Ruddy’s General Store, a museum that manages to combine culture and commerce.

Why dahlings, it’s a recreation of a general store from the 1930’s complete with authentic period merchandise. Behold –

Why it was simply amazing! The highlight on my day in fact. And this fascinating glimpse into the past is available for the low, low price of 95 cents, dahlings.

A simple stroll next door found me at the oldest building in the Springs, The McAllum Adobe. The headquarters of the Palm Springs Historical Society, this modest museum offered a glimpse into a history of the Springs. Admission was $1, darlings. Quite a deal. Unfortunately, no pictures, as I simply forgot to take them.

After promenading down the drive, my companion and I were simply famished. We happened upon a quaint spot called Tyler’s Burgers. Once ensconced on the shaded patio I perused the menu and decided to order the signature dish.

Doesn’t that look delish? And, dahlings, it was. A hand formed patty cooked to perfection. Just the right sustenance for our journey homeward. Now, dahlings, it was modestly priced although not a complete bargain at $6.75. Sometimes it’s worth a few extra pennies for quality.

So, dahlings, grab your motor car and head on down to the Springs for an especially enjoyable, inexpensive excursion. Toodles!

And the Oscar goes to…

Who cares really? In about a month’s time we’ll forget who was nominated anyway. But there is one thing that I would like to thank the Academy for and that is the awesome public programs it provides. About 10 years ago I discovered that the […]
