Cranks My Tractor

This seemed reasonable.

After talking to the gas company and pricing getting gas into the house, along with a gas range, the biggest pair of diamond earrings was starting to look like a bargain.

I made two stops on the way home.  One at the jewelry store to pick up and pay for the less expensive earrings, the other stop was at the WalMart.

It is nice to go in and pick up a bag at the jewelry store and just pay.  (The lack of thought here would of course get me in trouble.)  I knew I could depend on my oldest daughter not spilling the beans on picking out the earrings for me. I made up for it at the WalMart. 

This WalMart was one with groceries and I was going up and down the aisles looking for what I needed.

I found what I was looking for on the bottom shelf of an aisle where two older ladies had stopped their shopping carts and decided to talk right in front of what I needed.  They were very nice and politely moved out of the way.

I picked up what I needed and one of the ladies asked me, “What are you going to do with all of those pork and beans?”  I had gotten a can of pork and beans large enough to feed the congregation of a small Baptist church in Alabama.
