Went away for a bit and come back to find more stuff has changed in this town. So of course, I’ve got to talk about it and the gravel on the road.
Worse kept secrets
Well, for a long time folks has been asking what are they building by the No Frills and there’s been a lot of guesses from people on what’s being built there. And then the canopy went in and the tanks and people knew it was another gas station, which is gonna be good for folks that go that way especially since no one wants to go the other way on account of rock chips in their windshields.
Anyway, there was another building what went up and folks was saying it was gonna be a restaurant with golden arches. I didn’t believe it at first, but I didn’t believe it in 2008 when we got us a Tim Hortons coffee shop either.
Now I believe it because they put the sign up the other day that they was hiring.
Won’t be long and I’ll be able to get a milkshake there, too.
And speaking of milkshakes.
I come home to find that 100 Avenue is not much better than when I left for a week. It’s like driving on a County road except this one is worse than a County road.
Never thought I’d see the day when South Glens had better roads than downtown Morinville.
Reminds me of the time my neighbour tried to pour his own stone sidewalk after a few too many wobbly pops.
But I got to thinking. If I put ice cream and milk in a cup and drove up and down 100 Avenue, I’d probably be able to just make my own milkshakes and not have to go to the golden arches.
But the road work has been good for economic development here – imagine the glass place is doing big business.
That’s a lot of booze
Speaking of business going good. I see the AGLC opened a 500,000 square foot warehouse in St. Albert – the biggest one in the whole province, I heard on the TV.
Fellow told me they built it there in St. Albert to be close to all of Morinville’s liquor stores.
I don’t know if that’s true, but did you here McDonalds is coming?
