Getting Corny in Corning

Today we had some rain, and then some more rain, and then it even rained some more.  It started about 9 or so this morning and hasn’t really stopped much all day.  That put a crimp in our plans to go into the downtown area for a walk.  I suppose we could have gone canoeing instead, but we would have gotten too wet.

We did make one excursion out of the RV in the rain.  Did you know that Corning is world famous for the olives grown here?  I suppose you could say it’s the pits here, but really, it’s the olives!  So we went to a gift shop called the Olive Pit where Carol bought some olives.

Then we went to lunch at Round Table Pizza and had their buffet lunch including pizza, salad, & bread sticks.  This pizzeria had found a unique use for those old television console sets from the 50’s and 60’s.  Make them into aquarium housings.

So if you have one of these old consoles hanging around and you don’t know what to do with it, here is a possible solution. 

Then we went to Safeway to buy some items for dinner and then back to the RV.  It was nice to be able to take a couple of days off from driving the RV.  We will remain here tomorrow too so I can watch my NFL games and then we will head to Patterson on Monday.

Oh yeah, the Olive place. I have to admit I have never seen an aquarium in a TV console. You sound like you're having a great time, despite the rain.

When it's raining, have fun at the Olive Pit...that's what I always say. T.V. consoles to that an interesting retro conversion. It probably gets watched a lot more now than it did when it was a T.V. don't ya think?
