Funny Peculiar

I worked the garden register for a while yesterday covering for a lunch. While I was there a minivan pulled up and discharged  5 Buddhist monks complete with the saffron robes. All but one made a beeline for the back while one peeled off and headed into the store proper. A few minutes later they all returned pushing a flat cart piled with organic soil conditioner and the loner returned with several pairs of work gloves. The eldest pulled out a Visa from somewhere and slid it through the terminal and boom they all piled their goods into the waiting minivan and vanished. The whole episode lasted no more than 5 minutes and afterwards seemed very surreal. One, I didn't know there was a monastery in Roswell but where else would a minivan of monks come from? Just what are they planting and how do I find out where they are?

"And what became of the monk[s] (the monk[s], the monk[s], the monk[s]...)?"

 It wasn't an elephant it was a minivan and I didn't hear a sneeze. I did however wonder where the monk(s) went. I should have know there would be a musical reference from Mr. Bates if there was any possible linkage. Good Show!

Just a visitor stopping by for your Harren's cinnamon rolls recipe - but when I visited a Buddhist temple in Orlando, FL, I met a monk who told me there was a temple in (I believe he said) Decatur. So I did a Google search and it turns out there's quite a few in the Atlanta area, actually! Best regards!
