The Adventures of Traveling Allan™ (continued):
Exploring the Mall with B.J.
[Above: After the last time of exploring on his
own, Allan™ agrees that it would be safer for him if he
allow me to accompany him on his walks.
Early in the morning before anyone arrives would be best, we
We go upstairs to the food court in the mall and he begins
to have a look around . . .]
[Above: Wow, it's a long way down! Allan™
has a look downstairs from our table near the elevator that
will soon be torn down.
Then he has a look down the hallway near the upstairs food

outside of Starbucks Coffee and Pinkberry. . . .]

waiting! Hey look, they are setting up a fancy car
exhibit right outside Lord and Taylor's!]

the mall where Allan™ has a good look around.]
Allan: Hi everyone. This
might turn out to be a pretty large section of my blog,
depending on how much of the mall we explore. Boy, is
this a HUGE place. I can't even imagine walking it
all. B.J. and I have only begun to explore it.
In the mornings before going to the store to report for
work, she has breakfast and does some work on her
computer. I didn't know this, but she runs some of the largest music
discographies in the world and has been doing that
since 1999. Anyway, after the last time of me
exploring her office and break room on my own, I decided
that it would probably be safer for me if she accompany me
to some places of interest in the mall where she works. . .
First, we went upstairs to the food court area and
hallways. There is a ton of construction going on in
this mall right now. But (except for the
construction), it's very nice looking up here and I had a
great view of everything. Next, I'd like to take a
look at some stores before people begin to come into the
mall. . . . First, we went to Starbucks to get
something to drink and breakfast except they weren't quite
open yet, so we had a seat on the couch and waited.
There was a Pinkberry Yogurt stand across from Starbucks and
some nice jewelry stores as well, but those were still all
closed. While we were waiting, they were setting up a
Porsche car exhibit in the lobby. Cars sure have
changed since 1964!
We then walked down to the downstairs food court of this
mall where I looked at all the eating places there
were. Trying to decide what I will get for lunch
here...! They even have a tv and a fake fireplace.
