No no no no YES!!!

There's a Walmart about 15 minutes south of here (not an easy 15 minutes either) and one 15 minutes east of here (not much easier). Today I went east. No joy. Really. I love Walmart. Seriously, love it. I can always spend a bundle on stuff that delights me. Today, I had a list which I rarely and it was fully of very Walmart-ie stuff. And Walmart had none of it. None. I mean really. I finally found one thing on the list but by that time I was over the whole experience. And frozen breaded cut okra? NFW.

So I went to QFC which is owned by Kroger which says they have it. They do not. They have frozen cut okra. Not breaded.

I went to another QFC. I went to another market. I also wanted a small bag of potting soil. Small as in for a pot or two not small as in for only the front yard... I have neither a truck nor a muscle guy to lift your 'small' bags. Keep 'em.

I came home. And ordered what I wanted from Amazon. Worth the wait.

In the mail for me was a remote control for my ceiling fan. It needed a 9 volt battery. I have a house full of AAA's and AA's and C's and D's and a wide variety of button batteries - even a could of AAAA's. Do I have a Fucking 9 Volt???? no. Geesh.

I put my shoes back on and walked to the market on the corner. They had AAA's only. So I got my keys and went to Grocery Outlet (less than a mile from here). Got the battery AND low and behold they had a bunch of Ben and Jerry's on sale. Wait! What??? They had Vanilla toffee bar! My very favorite ice cream in all the world. I thought they quit making it - They may have, actually. That's Grocery Outlet's game. $2 a pint. I bought 4 pints. Freezer space is the show stopper. Although I may well toss some stuff out and go get more.

And, yes, I already had some. So delicious.

And the remote didn't work on my fan. Return to Amazon but no regrets. If it weren't for that remote, I'd have never discovered the bounty at Grocery Outlet.

We're making a little progress with kitty treats. The Smalls is still beyond indifferent, but Biggie's beginning to feel it. I put some Temptations in a plastic cut with a lid that I can shake and make noise. When he's out and about and comes looking at me, I shake it and then pop the top and let him sniff. Last night I let him chose one. Kitten steps.

And speaking of which... I have one on my side and one on my feet.


Time now for Acorn TV and the new season of London Kills which became available today. No baseball tonight so between DCI Banks and London Kills and the Bake Off, maybe I should have spotted dick for dinner!
