ON THE BACK BURNER

June 16

Bob's PT is getting expensive. He is there for 45 minutes. Not enough time to go home. So, there is that GoodWill book store and Walmart near by. What's a girl to do.? Yesterday, Walmart called out to me. It's been a long time since I just pushed an empty cart through a store. I zigged all over the aisles. I was looking for nothing ,so I just followed the cart. I didn't know that Pioneer Woman had a line of kitchen products and a magazine. How come I didn't know that. I did buy a new can opener. I use very few cans. Mostly the cans are canned tomatoes. Last year, I decide to buy a new opener because my ancient one was getting rusty around the rollers. I have a can opener fetish. I throw it in the dishwasher after every use and I guess that triggered the rust. Publix had two styles of openers and I let price dictate which one I threw in my basket. It was terrible. It caught at the seam in the can and I had to pry the lid off. I was always afraid that I would slice my finger with the sharp edge. But I bought it, so I figured that I was stuck with it. A visiting daughter made me promise that I would get a new opener. While I was meandering around WallMart, that was the perfect thing to buy. End of story. When I got home, I opened a can of tomato paste, and voila! It works like a real can opener is supposed to. What took me so long to replace that dangerous old one.? Now I have to go back to Wall Mart and buy tuna fish in a can. Maybe some tomato soup. What else comes in cans.?

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
