Note: For those of you who commented on yesterday's post, I have responded.
As I mentioned last time, my lovely and talented wife, Cora, and I do the weekly grocery shopping together. It's kind of funny, there's an Aldi across the street. Literally, across the street from our condo. When I moved in, I gave them a try. When Cora moved in, she gave them a try. It's a poorly lit Hall of the Damned, we simply can't visit it. Just down the street is a Family Dollar. They have a surprising variety, and being in walking distance, a great place to grab that "one thing". We tend to hit them up for cleaning supplies and their snack cake knock-offs that we call, "Faux-Ho's".
As mentioned, Dominick's is our preferred store, but there's also Jewel-Osco, Target, and a new guy, Mariano's, an offshoot of Wisconsin's Roundy's chain has also moved into the neighborhood (Actually into the building that used to house the Dominick's we used to shop at). And then there's the Entenmann's Outlet (aka "The Bread Store"). Killer prices on bread, bagels, English muffins, and donuts. The clerk looks like a peroxide nightmare, but she's actually pretty nice.
All-in-all, we shop far and wide, and sometime, just sometimes, we are amazed at what we see:
Our local Dominick's has a parking lot on the roof. I saw this weird, enclosed 3 wheeled, motorcycle. Sorry for the bad shot. Only had the cell phone camera, and she was pretty far away. I've seen them before, in London, but never around here.
"Fiber for Life"? I'm not sure that I need a lifetime's worth of fiber in my bread. Lordy!
Speaking of "therapy"…
I think I'll need some after staring deep into the "Red Eye". See! I'm hypo-mo-tized!
And while not at the grocery store, I did pass this little wine shop in my neighborhood that had a very interesting display in the window. Joshua, this is for you:
