Don’t ever say that I am inflexible… “The Plan” was to mow lawns this morning like I have the past few Thursdays. That plan fell apart when rain occurred last night. I am at the Waschsalon instead, lawn mowing will occur tomorrow morning.

  1. Sitting at the Waschsalon I just heard a tv commercial for JC Penney. I honestly didn’t know that JC Penney was still in business.

      Oh YES! And you know how I know this? JC Penney was my childhood. 🙂 Mom worked for them so almost everything in the house came from Penney’s, what with her employee discount and all.

      She retired with them and got to keep her employee discount to this day. I fully expect to be shopping there with Mom when I’m home in a couple weeks. Lucky for us, there’s one not but 6 miles from her place. I think it may have been a requirement for buying there. 😉

      The store from my childhood that I’m always surprised to trip over on road trips is Roses. http://www.rosesdiscountstores.com/ At this point I think JCPenney is probably in much better financial shape than Sears, which I don’t know why they don’t just put out of it’s misery.

      • Huh, I have never heard of Roses before.

      • Barbara says:

        Roses, that’s a new one for me too.
        I don’t mind Penney’s (or Sears for that matter), I just so rarely get near a mall, I forget they are still around.

        • Debbie says:

          We shopped at Roses too. I think the one in Griffin is still open actually. Our go to store for back to school shopping was Richway, but we also frequented the JC Penney outlet store in Forest Park which is still there. Two out of three have endured for more than 40 years. That’s impressive to me.

  2. ITP Lurker says:

    Yes, completely flexible within an excruciatingly tight tolerance. 😂😂😂😂😂

  3. Stacy says:

    Anyone else going to the park for the free ASO performance tonight? 🙂 I know a few friends who plan to – like your Glory Hole, Paulie. We should keep our eyeballs out for each other if so! [and, Lurker, I’ll just pretend every other gentleman I see just *might be you*!]


    • I believe Glory Mole and a few of the other Urban Explorers will be in attendance. I’m taking a night at home, perhaps cooking something in the Instant Pot.

    • ITP Lurker says:

      I had thought about going, but I don’t think I’ll be there tonight. With that said, our collective IRL paths are getting ever closer together, and will cross at some point.

  4. Speaking of inflexibility… I am being reminded that I need to stretch more because I am having a bit of stiffness pain in my right hip after yesterday’s jog/walk.

    Getting ready to head to Chattanooga to go biking at Enterpise South. Supposed to be fun flowy trails. Then we will head to Cathy (fore inch) & Bob’s (butt bob) in Hayesville, NC to visit. Hoping it hasn’t rained too much up there, websites say trails are open.

    Went to see a show at City Winery last night, it’s a very nice venue. Traffic was of course horrible to get into town, I’m not surprised, but just once it’s be nice to actually get somewhere in a decent amount of time.

    • I like City Winery, though I made the mistake of buying a seat too close to the stage when I first went there. I felt cramped at my table, with no ability to get up, for the entire concert.

      • Barbara says:

        We were right in front of the stage, i agree, I think we’d get a table a little further back next time.

    I think Roses is a small market Southern thing. I’ve seen them but don’t remember \hem from my youth. Our store was Sears. The only credit card my dad ever carried.

    Killing time at the airport. The people watching is pretty good.
