The temperature dropped this morning down to a chilly 4F. Yes, it was chilly, but not icy thank goodness.
The drive in to Rochester went smoothly and I was suprised at the lack of traffic. You’d think it was one of those quasi-holidays again.
After work I went to Walmart (yes, I know, I said I was going to stop shopping there) because Elizabethe wanted some items we have only found there. This time, here are some of the things that were not on the shelves:
Butter (Walmart’s house brand)
Brown-n-serve sausage links
Blue Diamond Toffee Almonds
several brands of paper napkins, and not just the cheapest ones
Pina Colada Yoplait Yogurt (evidently the aren’t going to carry it any more)
There were some other items, but I can’t remember them right now. The other day, they were out of diet rootbeer (their house brand), and some other items too.
Elizabethe called and asked to speak to the manager. She was told he is out. She asked for his voice mail. They said he doesn’t have one. She asked to leave a message; they said she could not. So, she talked to the manager on duty and was very blunt about the situation.
We’ll see if it has any impact.
While I’m ragging on Walmart… they advertise they are the low-price leader. Well then, why are their PNY SD Class 10, 8GB, cards about $5 more than BestBuy?
I think I’ll pull out my iPhone when I’m at other stores and photograph the price tags on “good deals” so when I’m in Walmart, and see a higher price I can bring it to the manager’s attention…. assuming I can find a manager.
Enough of that… for now.
I made ham and swiss sandwiches on ciabbata rolls for dinner. Nothing beats ham and swiss on a chilly night.
Sisters Egan and Morrison came over and visited for a while. I had made a peach cobbler for dessert so we had dessert while they were there. They were pretty impressed that it was just a can of fruit and a box of cake mix dumped on top and then baked. (That’s right – 1 large can of peaches or some other fruit and you dump a yellow cake mix on top. Then, you bake it at 325F for 1 hour (covered).)
