Anyway, speaking of work...this guy was sitting in front of me on the bus a few days ago. I had to take a secret picture because he had an impressive set of dreadlocks!
It's a no frills, generic brand store. At check out the cashier rings up your stuff and puts it back in the basket. Then you pull over to a counter and pack your own groceries. You usually bring your own bags but if you don't, they sell plastic bags for 10 cents and paper bags for 6 cents each.
To cut costs they use minimum employees. So in order to not have to pay a stock person to go fetch carts from the parking lot, they make you pay a quarter to use a basket. I think it's pretty ingenious how they do it.
The baskets are all chained together with little boxes on each handle.
You put a quarter in the box and a little spring unlatches the basket. The quarter sits there while you push the cart all over the store. See my quarter poking out?
Then when you are finished you simply push your cart back in place, plug in the chain and out pops your quarter! Ah the joy of the simple things in life!
Shauna would like to have a broach bouquet for her wedding. I've picked up a couple of broaches here and there and yesterday I went to Michael's and picked up a couple of silk flowers to see how they looked. Here's the result.
This flower is actually mint..the picture makes it look yellow. I put a sliver, pearl and amethyst broach in the middle.
This is a white rose that I paired with a ruby broach. I really like this one.
It's going to be a blast making Shauna's bouquet and she will be able to keep it forever!
Until the next time.....
