Not much going on here. The weather is great and warmer
and so I was able to get out and mow yesterday AGAIN.
That is twice this week! The rain we got made the grass
grow so fast! Took a short ride to the big city and did
some shopping. Noticed that in WMT a clerk was setting
up about two aisles full of ONE DOLLAR or LESS items.
NO kidding!! He said he was told to place certain items
there and mark them all down to one dollar or less.
OKAyyyyyyyyy but some of the items were NOT ONE
DOLLAR BEFORE. YES I KNOW….
I spoke clearly and calmly. I told him that those cans of
fruit cocktail and such were NOT EVEN one dollar! He just
shrugged his shoulders and said he was doing what he was
told. I told him I was NOT BUYING them and would go
elsewhere, and walked away. NO WONDER when I went
to hunt for the fruit on the OTHER SIDE of the store.. they
were missing. What cans I bought for 70 cents are now
1.00! WOW! So much for helping the consumer S A V E
money!! The store was loaded, which is typical for
a first of the month Saturday. Every aisle it seemed
was busy with shoppers. Looking at the carts they
showed me that people stock up on the first
like I do. HOPE THEY ARE WATCHING PRICES too.
SPEAKING of prices.GAS here rose to 2.15 in less than
a day from 1.99. I sure don’t know what happened but it
was a shock. Milk continues to be low at 1.99 now that
most of the stores are getting to know people won’t buy
it at 3.49 and higher a gallon.
Got home in time to watch that fantastic Kentucky DERBY.
I could not recall such an upset as long as
I have been watching them. To see a rider come
down the track on the inside rail and win by so much
well that is something .. but his ODDS being 50-1 now
that WAS AMAZING! Was so happy for the owner too.
He came to the race with crutches in a pick up truck
carrying a trailer with his horse. You can BET hollywood is
already trying to get rights to this story because it will
make a great movie. Was a great race.
The night Nascar race was full of cautions and not the
winner I wanted. I got bored and fell asleep during
some of it. I am sure looking forward to seeing some
one other than the same driver winning every single race.
Sure he has a good car and crew, but please I need a
variety of winners!
When he won people cheered and ALSO Booed!!
EVERYTHING HERE IS GREEN AND YELLOW… A whole field of
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY!!
