The Country Bumpkins Go To Target

We were supposed to have our first big storm of the season yesterday and today, but we didn't get any rain here yesterday, just lots of wind which stirred up all the dirt in all the empty fields and caused big dust storms here. Yeah, kind of like the dust bowl days. You could see the dirt in the air and taste it in your mouth. Everything outside was covered with a fine layer of dirt. No rain except for about five seconds of sprinkling in the morning.

The clouds in this picture were actually brown.

Last night Keith needed to go put some gas in the car so I suggested we go to the new Target that opened up last weekend and check out all the excitement. The new big super duper Target with a Starbucks inside in the new fancy schmancy Riverwalk Park section of town. The Riverwalk Park with the lake where people drown all the time.

So, our highlight of the evening was walking around the big new Target store. Whoo hoo! We didn't even buy anything because we didn't have any money. Not even enough for a Starbucks.

Other than an expanded grocery section it really wasn't much different than the Target by us so I don't think we'll ever go there again. It wouldn't make much sense to drive five miles to go to Target when there is one less than 1/2 mile away, now would it?

So, life is a little dull around here when all we have to talk about is the weather and the new Target.

We got 3 inches of snow on our anniversary day this weekend, but it is all melted. It made a half hearted attempt to snow last night, but it was too wet to stick.

It's been pretty dull my way for a while too. We haven't seen sun for a few days now, and the 10 day forecast online says rain, rain, rain.

It's too early for this, isn't it?

We might be getting another Target and maybe one of the big ones with the full grocery store in it. The new one at the mall does have some groceries but they don't have all the produce that I have heard the next one will carry. Not sure how many more Targets this town needs, but the original one or the ghetto one as I call it is still my favorite!

WE have lots of Targets, too.
