So, they hopped into CLT and headed down there.
CLT says that they drove right to the area where the stores were, and it was just a short walk for Jim and Linda to get to them.
The first store they went into was the "Le Creuset Factory Store", where they had all kinds of cookware. After looking around, they found what they were calling a "Buffet Casserole", which Linda decided could be used for multiple purposes.
It was on sale, so they decided to buy it.
Then as they were checking out, the lady at the register informed them that they would also receive a free 9" oval baking dish as a gift for shopping in the store!!! : ) Wow!!! What a nice surprise!!!! It's very nice and Linda says that she's sure she'll be able to use it often!!
From the Le Creuset Factory Store, they went next door to a store called the "Kitchen Collection", where they found a cheese cutter like Jim has been wanting for a long time. Jim says that if you can't find the kitchen gadget that your looking for in that store, it's probably not being made any longer.
On the way back from the Mall, CLT says that they stopped at a Winn Dixie Grocery Store where Jim went in and bought a few essentials that they were out of. You know, things like bread, milk, cookies and beer. ; )
After they left the grocery store, CLT was sure that they were coming back here to the park, but no, they weren't done shopping yet!!!
There was one more place that Jim wanted to go to and it was the "Summerdale Western Store" to see if they had any shirts that he liked. You see, it's been ages since he last bought any short sleeve shirts and a few of his are just plain worn out.
Evidently, this is a good time to buy short sleeve shirts because they had some just like Jim wanted, and they were on sale to boot!!! On top of that, Jim jokingly asked the lady at the register if she would give him a senior citizen discount, and guess what, she gave him an additional 10% off!!! : )
I guess it never hurts to ask.
So. . . . .it was a very successful shopping day and everyone got what they wanted/needed.
After they returned here to the Plantation, Jim and Linda both grabbed something to eat and then took naps. The rest of the day was spent on the computers, watching TV and reading.
Oh, Jim did hook me back up to the city water as they're not forecasting any more freezing temperatures for the foreseeable future. : )
Did you know that 110 million roses, the majority red, will be sold and delivered within a three-day time period for Valentine's Day?
