ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec. 28

Today, I did something that I have wanted to do for several years, but really, not that much. I went to the largest shopping mall in Sarasota. Maybe it isn’t even in Sarasota. All of the high end stores are there. Same labels that I buy at Goodwill are there. One store had a table near the entrance that had a sign that said” Gifts for $250..” the table behind that one ,had gifts labeled   “Gifts for $100.00 “. Behind these two tables , was a third table with stuffed white cuddly bears that were labeled”gifts for $50.00”. That must have made gift shopping really easy for someone. I had the greatest time, sitting across from the Apple store watching people. I could tell that some people, male or female, put a lot of effort into what they wore shopping. The teen aged girls came dressed alike. tights, even though some should not have been in them and a shirt tied in the front. I didn’t see a lot of people with bags of purchases, so I am thinking it was just a fact finding kind of shopping experience. I did find two Starbucks. Two, in one mall.Because we all had cell phones, it was easy to connect when it was time to go. And that too, was special. I saw my first Bentley. My fact check Grandson immediately checked his cell to see how much it cost. . More than our first house and more than the condo I am in now. It was a fun afternoon. I may do it again.. some year.

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.
