I Bought Myself a Present
I kept thinking about it and finally decided to go in again and maybe Sher and Barclay could help me get it home. So this time I talked to another fellow - he was one of the managers. Nice, nice man. Ended up that he and another friend who worked there would bring them out to me. So I bought them and was to call in today to set up a time To shorten the story, they brought them out this morning in one of the fellow's big, old Buick station wagon and immediately started opening the boxes. They then proceeded to put them together for me and were not going to accept anything for doing all that. They finally agreed to take some money and said they would donate it to the March of Dimes which they are active in. I was so surprised and so happy that they did this - gives you so much faith in your fellowman. When I woke up this morning, I was worried about getting the pieces together - and there they are sitting on my patio all ready for summer thanks to two great guys from KMart.
The pretty hanging basket was another quick purchase. At Kroger now they have the outside garden center open. I had to take a run through that. So glad I did - they had these gorgeous hanging baskets for $7.99 each - that is such a buy! Red geraniums and white lacey stuff that I love. Also had some large rosey colored geraniums. I bought three of the red and white. If it gets frosty, I can put them in my shed overnight. It's too early to do much planting here in Michigan, yet, unless you want to cover. And I am going to cut down - but not cut out!!! I say that now, we'll see if I follow through when I start seeing all the lovely flowers!
