Everybody knows there’s no such thing as a quick trip to Lincoln, but yesterday I tried. I had some shopping to do. I ended up getting some plants for my garden here in Seward. But the looking was the thing. I especially enjoy going to Finke Gardens and Nursery. Their buyer likes exotic plants, just like me. I suppressed many impulses at that place. After all the looking and buying, my trip to Lincoln lasted five hours.
But real excitement came from a visit to Walmart right here in Seward. Beth came along on that trip. I needed ibuprofen and fruit. I also needed a belt, but forgot. I went back later. Beth needed “pony holders”. I thought the farm supply store would be a better place for that, but she found them in the hair care aisle.
On the way through the checkout line, I saw something that I’ve been looking for for months: Icebreakers Iced Tea mints! I was so excited. I started piling containers on the belt and Beth said, “Why don’t you just take the whole box?” So I did. Woo hoo! I’ll have a supply for months!
