J's Fish & Chips
8am - Brother Pete Olson [His pic is on the right side of my Blog], turned me on to J's Fish & Chips in Lincoln City.
I was going to prepare French Toast with bacon for breakfast this morning. Instead, I am going to tough it out with a snack in order to save my appetite for J's!!
Ain't life grand?

[Pete-Wish you were here!]
12 noon - J's is sooooo busy!
J's opened at 11:30am. Almost immediately, customers descended on this restaurant! I waited a 1/2 hour thinking that J's would empty out.
No! It just got busier! When I returned at 12 noon, every table was taken! I got lucky, and somebody got up from a small 2-person table. I put my Mac computer on that table to reserve it, and got into the order line.
Not knowing what fish to order, I bought a 4 pc Combo:
[1 Pc Cod, 1 Pc Halibut & 2 Shrimp] $8.50
I also ordered a Pepsi, which only cost $1. Wow! And that Pepsi got delivered to my table. Amazing!
Why is J's sooooo popular?
➜ The fish tastes great.
➜ The fry coating is fresh, not oily at all.
➜ A cup of fresh cole slaw comes with each basket
➜ Prices are good for this high quality
➜ Lots of food!
2pm - Abraham Lincoln Memorial
We saw a sign pointing east for a Memorial Tribute to Abraham Lincoln. It took awhile to find it. We were looking for a bigger memorial, instead of Abe sitting on a horse located on a quiet street corner.
The second time driving passed the memorial, we spotted it!

5pm - Afternoon Camp
The Scampy Team has made an Afternoon Camp on a quiet street in Lincoln City.
We had some strange things occur today:
➜ This morning, when we headed out from our Nite Camp, the low tire pressure alert turned on.
➜ We went to a gas station for air. Two tires were a bit low. We topped off all tires.
➜ Scampy needs water in his Fresh Water Tank. However, our hoses are back with Tránsito in Salem.
➜ We went to Ace Hardware in Salem to buy a hose. Ace closed 15 minutes before our arrival. Sears closed also.
➜ The low tire pressure alert came on again.
➜ We had a Team Meeting to decide whether to head back to Salem or stay here in Lincoln City for the nite here. Lincoln City won!
So, we are going to Brave-It-Out a with low fresh water tank and low tire pressure.
PS: We asked a guy washing his car to allow us to fill our 8-gallon tank. He seemed to be kinda hostile toward Little Honda's California license plate. He didn't wanna let us get water.
9pm - Lincoln City
On Sunday, this town shuts down early in the evening. But Dairy Queen is open tonite until 10pm. I am there now. A steady stream of customers are in the order line.
I was messing around with a new TV. Trying to see how the TV works. Lost track of time and nearly missed supper! I'm not able to prepare my own supper in Scampy this evening. The Dometic fridge got a bit over heated yesterday and spoiled food.
So here I am in DQ with a $5 buck lunch [served all day].
9:30pm - Driving in Oregon
It may be my imagination. But driving in Oregon seems really different.
When I'm pulling out of a gas station, for example, the cars coming at me do not let me into the traffic stream. The cars just come toward me, in a somewhat never ending stream.
It kinda reminds me of driving in Mexico. Where the driver in the rear has the right-of-way over the driver in front.
I began driving in the 1950s. Back then we used the "fake-out" move to get into traffic. Do you know that move? You just move forward a bit to get the opposing driver to put on brakes. And then you move on thru! Faking out that guy!
Gotta love it! 😍
I do not understand cryptocurrency. Don't know how to buy, exchange and trade Bitcoin. Same with blockchain.
When I search Google for: "What is a Bitcoin?", I get:
"a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank."
When I search Google for: "What is a dollar?", I get:
"the basic monetary unit of the US, Canada, Australia, and certain countries in the Pacific, Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America."
So, when you read these two definitions, do they make sense? Do you understand them? Why do we trust a dollar? Why do most of not trust Bitcoin?
I am beginning to study cryptocurrency.
