October 4-5

In the last couple of days: breakfast w/Windy, lunch w/Darryl, some modest housekeeping, a haircut, and a long trip to a real store.

I had a list of maybe 15 unrelated items - shampoo, dish towels, slippers, etc. - oddball stuff and BB&B might have them all. I would have just sat at my computer and ordered everything from amazon but I decided to test the concept of a store.

It went ok. Of course I picked up a few things that weren't on the list and they didn't have everything. So, ok. Better than amazon? I don't think so, not for me anyway. I don't think I want all the stores to go away either.

But then (horror of horrors) I've gotten used to not having book stores. I know, yikes, philistine. It's because I really Really like the alternative, which is a story for another day.
