De Anza Flea Market
We got out early to the De Anza Flea Market. It's been hot so an early visit was needed. This flea market is at De Anza College in Cupertino. It's a huge monthly market to support the Associated Student Body of the school. Back in the late 70's it was "the" place to get all your computer junk to build your own computer. I picked up all the parts for my apple II imitation there. Now days, it's nothing like that but is much bigger. It's mostly imported junk but some is good stuff. No high tech stuff any more. Too bad!
We enjoyed the look. It's been several years since we've been there. Dawn picked up a couple of books. Lou picked up some reading glasses, to loose.
On our way home we stopped at Holders Country Inn on De Anza Blvd for breakfast. They have great Omelette Souffles. We shared two omelettes and left with lots of left overs. They come with pancakes as an option. Their pancakes are famous. Holder was one of the owners of the "Original Pancake House' restaurants many years ago. They also make great cheese cakes. Another time.
It then got hotter, time for the shade of the backyard. Good things can't last.
The old-ish RV batteries couldn't be revived. I ordered replacement batteries for the RV Thursday morning. They were from The Inverter Store in Reno. Their price was 25% less than anywhere else and there was no tax and no shipping cost. For such heavy objects, that's a real savings. Friday morning when I checked the UPS site, it said they had been in Menlo Park and were out for delivery. They arrived at 1 PM. That's fast, for 6 each 68 pound objects. I installed them this afternoon. One had some damage that still needs to be cleared up with UPS so only 4 were installed.
