. . . adding insult to injury . . .

. . . first, they took away/closed
our neighborhood osco . . .
. . . and now every fall
they turn that empty building into this . . .
. . . then {insert bitter tears}
they closed our beloved bashas' . . .
. . . which happens to be located
directly across the street
from the store formerly known as osco . . .
. . . and just take a look at
what they did to it now . . .
. . . talk about a little healthy competition . . .
. . . still, i'd rather be
picking up prescriptions and groceries . . .
. . . costumes, masks and disgusting makeup??
~ not so much! . . .

i felt the sacrilege too when i saw it.... kind of sad....and stupid. i shopped at frys a week ago and it took me forever to find stuff. i ran into julie mcf. there and we both were about in tears missing our bashas and finding things easily.

Oh, and did you see the other Halloween store on the SE corner as well. So, three within walking distance. I tell you if they turn the Sonic into a halloween store, I'm out of here! Notice I did not capitalize halloween or store, cause I will not give them any honor. Nope! Oh and p.s. the word verification is sworted. See what I mean?

I was in both of those stores today. Gag. They both gave me the creeps. All I wanted was a cowboy holster, and bought one at each store. The one at Basha's was bigger and better and the same price. But I couldn't return the other one. Too much creepy stuff in one place for the likes of me.

Oh, and guess what? I was deceived! There isn't another Halloween store on the SE corner, just Goodwill trying to get all into "the business". Can you believe that? I feel kind of creeped out or something!
