The "Manager's Specials"
This is the kind of thing that seems to happen most often to others but not me. So, you can imagine how surprised I was to pull into the parking lot and actually find a parking space close to the front of the grocery store (note: I know I have written about grocery stores previously, but this is different). I was on a mission. I had a short list of items enumerated in the text message from Cathy. There was clear hurriedness to my pace. I quickly pulled my items off the shelves and deposited them into the cart (I almost called the cart a buggy because carts are called buggies where I was raised). The last item on my list was milk – ½ gallon of skim milk. When I got to the dairy case and opened the door I noticed an unusual label on some of the jugs of milk. The label read “Manager’s Special”. But it was the price that caught me off guard – $.25. That’s right, 25 cents for a half gallon of milk. I immediately looked for the expiration date expecting it to be that day but it wasn’t. The expiration date was 5 days later. I must confess that in my skepticism I almost put it back on the shelf but I did not. It must be a trick, but it wasn’t. This half gallon of skim milk was almost free. I admit that I was not fully convinced that it was “special” until I twisted off the cap and did a taste test. It was fresh. I was surprised and grateful for this “Manager’s Special”.

Life in Louisa by Sandy O'Brien
Wow, it is hard to believe that summer is over! It seems like we just celebrated Memorial Day and here we are at Labor Day once again. But, what a summer it was! I can't remember a summer that I enjoyed more; we had so many concerts, benefits, trips to the Aquatic Facility (isn't it wonderful?), classes at the Betty Queen Center, whew! And, a very special thank you to all my wonderful friends and family for the delightful birthday surprise party! Talk about surprised, I hadn't had a birthday party since I was a tiny tot. It was the perfect ending to the perfect summer!
The weather this summer was certainly reminiscent of last summer's weather. I wonder if these overall cooler summers are here to stay? Not that I am complaining! I just melt when the temperature's in the upper 90's (or lower 100's) and the humidity makes you feel as if you've just stepped into a sauna instead of simply out the front door. [Read More]
