Firmly in the category of "It never hurts to ask..." Wow! I got two shopping carts full of pumpkins at the grocery store yesterday. For FREE!
As I walked in I noticed two carts full of various and sundry gourds, pumpkins, and squash. They obviously didn't belong there so I moseyed over to the Customer Service Desk and asked if they were giving them away? The "customer service" person sneered at me and told me I was out of my mind (in not so many words). So I moved on..
And then I saw the produce guy. "Say friend, what's with the carts of pumpkins out there?" I casually asked.
"Well, they are gourds and they are free."
I tried to to remain calm and then asked, "Really? Can I have them....all?"
Completely unconcerned he just said, "Yep. Take them all."
Of course my eyes bugged right out of my head because:
1. They were FREE. Two shopping carts worth!
2. I was a little dubious of a produce guy who didn't know the difference between a stupid gourd and prize winning, pie making blue hubbard squash!
But I wasn't about to correct him so I ran right out there and pushed the carts over to the big truck and loaded them all up.
Talk about a great day! Not only did a score several free meals for them pigs - I also now have a huge supply of seeds just for the scooping. Not to mention I have some fabulous blue hubbard squash that have "pie" written all over them. What could be better?
I'll tell you what's better...... the puppy is so darn cute. Check him out sitting in the sunshine:
So is everyone voting? Doesn't matter what side you're on, get right out there. Don't think for a second that your vote doesn't count. Take the time to stop by your local polling place and cast your vote. If anything you're making it known that We The People want to be heard.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
