This was the time before internet. So, I learned to occupy my...

He was much more polite to us. I'm so ashamed to admit it.....

A local grocery store here is remodeling and not a single one of the changes is good for those of us who shop there.

All of the items have been moved from their usual spots as well. It seems like all of these changes have...
