Dude! That is an awesome tree pic! I was never the atrsie type, but I could get on board with that.
It's in the Portland Japanese Garden.  Beautiful.  I always forget to go when we're in Portland.

If I can remember how to post a picture, this is a photo I took at the very same Japanese Garden in the springtime several years ago.  I love that place.

I've never considered a "6 pack and a pound" a meal for one person.  It would feed my four kids and my wife.  I wouldn't dream of eating one by myself.

Hike up your skirt, pull out your tampon, and plow through it, Sally!!  ;D

Haha, yeah it's definitely a meal one person can eat.  But they're the few, the proud!

I live in the land of the "taco" so really didn't expect to see a Taco Johns in my area but low and behold there are 4 locations in Texas and one in my city! Except that it is on Lackland AFB. :-\

Maybe I can get someone to bring me the delights of TJ.

To be honest I did not expect potato-nuggets. How anglicized can you get?

These are tacos:

Where do you live now? You know Taco Johns is a Wyoming product. Hell there has to be two or three withing a stones throw, no?

My wife used to LOVE Taco Johns, then she married a Mexican...Now she cringes like I do.

+1  Sorry weazletoe, Where I live there are taco john's across the street from Taco Bells.  I walk
kitty corner and go to "On the Border"...and have my doubts about their stuff as well....
The thing is, when I do that I can be served Negra Modelo. Not offered at the Bell or Johns.

You are spot on with this assessment rabid_dingo

Note that I said "fast food taco". I'm not talking "best taco ever". There are lots of places that have a better taco. But If I'm gonna hit a a drive through, and I can't make it to the taco truck, Taco Johns wins every time.

  Six pack and a pound.....a pound of tacos and six pack of beer.....I just might have to put this on the menu when I open my taco stand in the turtle park! (with that,I do believe we've come full circle. Now, back to your regularly scheduled BFI thread.  ;D )

Oh yeah, there is a Taco Johns right here in Pocatello. I've never had Taco Johns till I moved here. Now, I find out there was a Taco Johns just three hours from me when I lived in Ohio. I could have been going there for years!

Would've been a long drive just for that.  Not worth it in my opinion.  For that matter, not many places are worth a 3 hour drive.  I sure would like to go to Great Dane brewpub & restaurant again in Madison, WI, which is 3 hours or so from me.  But I don't really have the time or money to make that trip often.
