I admit, I do shop. But, I shop online or at certain stores that I can get in and out quickly. Going into a crowded store and looking at all the merchandise is overwhelming and claustrophobic for me. Even when I was young, I used to black out at Leonard's Department Store during the holidays. As I got older, I basically saw something on a mannequin, bought it, and went home.
The trip was fun, although it was not as fun as the photo on the Canton Trade Days website implies.
Our country club took a bus load of women (which is more representative to the average Canton shopper), so there were people there to guide me. My best purchase was, flamingos. My friend, Jorj, and I got the last three solar powered ones. (and we did look as happy as that couple above when we found them).
The flamingos have been living around the pool. This is their daytime look:
This is their nighttime look:
As we know, though, life is fragile. One night, a storm came through, and I had not put the flamingos under cover. Since then, only one flamingo's solar unit is working. While I am married to a wonderful veterinarian, I am not sure he can help this flamingo. So, if anyone has advice on solar units, flamingos, or about shopping, please leave me a comment.
