Walk to Store

In a few days I will be going in for a surgery on my nose and sinus. It is not cosmetic, I wish and , trust me, I have tried unsuccessfully to convince the surgeon to go ahead and tweak it a bit. No such luck. The surgery, if successful, will help with my breathing and remove stuff that just isn’t supposed to be there. It is also quite the coincidence that the operation will be the day after my 7 th month quit-smoking anniversary.

So I told you that to tell you that I went for a walk while I could. This time I walked to the local Target and while I was there I popped into the Toys R Us and the Burlington Coat Factory. Both of those stores I took some pictures.  (It is amazing to me that I do not get kicked out of more places or at least asked to stop taking pictures.) In the Toys R Us, besides just being a huge story full of toys that someone like me could play with , you know , just to test them, I was actually looking to see if they had any of the expansions sets for the great game The Settlers of Catan. They did not. So I wandered around to , you know , test toys, and I happened on  a shelf where a great battle was being waged.  The shelf with the miniature knights and such had not been straightened up in a while I think and the result was them looking like a battle field complete with a dragon. I took pictures.

In the other store The Burlington Coat Factory I actually wen t in to see if I could find some sheets for my bed that I like. I am particular about type on sheets and color and thread count, etc. Well they also did not have what I want. One of my favorite parts of the store is the home decor. It is always like a mini Pier One there with the exception of everything being made in China rather than the countries they should come from. So the Elephants, Giraffes and Zebras are made in China and not say, Africa. I always fascinated by that type of stuff  and the way they are displayed. I took pictures but this time I was not ignored, I was followed. I was watched very  closely.

And I close this with some pillows that they had everywhere except where pillows should have been. The first one was a vibrant, lovely, 60’s-style pillow. The picture is a detail of that pillow and the other two are just silly.
