Yep. Went All Out and went on a spending spree. I got a Zebco 733 Hawg and a nice pole to go with it, then acquired a Shimano spinner reel and pole with light line for casting. So now we have two new fishing poles and all the gear that goes with it.
Kmart actually had a better selection than Tarzhay, and almost as good as West Marine. But prices were significantly lower at the ol' Kmart...
We then hit Stein Mart with coupons in hand. (Stein Mart is a mostly Ladies clothes store of indeterminate goodness)
Every time I follow Spousal Unit around a Lady's clothing store, I get a case of induced fatigue. I mean I will begin uncontrollable yawning and become a lethargic and slow moving type of sloth. But to be fair, I feel the same way at a Men's clothing store.
We got three jackets and three blouses and escaped Stein Mart for less than fifty bucks. Ooh -RAH!
We paid double that for food at Tarzhay!
Great News! We now have three additional readers, apparently they are from Cairo, Lisbon and Sunnyvale. I am diggin' the sitemeter scene with a gangsta lean.
Prolly spammers, I don't really know, but I do know that someone in Cairo would not be interested in anything I have to say; excepting, of course, if I happened to know the meaning of Life.
Unless Marmaris, Turkey is considered "Middle East", there ain't any of "it" available in the Middle East.
Lists are being made, stores are being raided for provisions and in about eleven days an epic voyage will be undertaken.
Have a safe week!
