OOPS! THIS POST FOR WEDNESDAY IS NULL AND VOID. I AWOKE WITH GASTROINTESTINAL DISTRESS, NOT CONDUCIVE TO AUTO TRAVEL ON CURVY ROADS! NOT SURE IF THIS IS A VIRUS OR THE RESULT OF MY THERAPEUTIC DOSES OF IRON (symptoms are the same). WE MAY TRY AGAIN TOMORROW AFTER A SCHEDULED APPT WITH LOCAL PHYSICIAN.
Time-out for shopping!
Only if living in a rural, remote area, like the Arkansas Ozark hills and mountains, do you appreciate the joy of a shopping trip to a city with multiple choices.
Today, Jan 13, husband (H) and I are traveling to Branson to shop the outlet malls (3) and maybe a different Walmart Super Center!
We both are looking for footwear. H wants some warmer boots and shoes than he has purchased at the local WalMart. I am interested in some walking shoe replacements in the Easy Spirit brand.
There were two Easy Spirit outlet stores last time I was in Branson. Surely one remains. After two knee prostheses implants, I was advised to only wear walking shoes--not a thing of beauty, but definitely comfortable. I usually buy 4 pairs, in assorted colors. It has been nearly six years since I have purchased shoes.
There are Easy Spirit, Rockport, Nike, Reebock, RedWing, SAS and many other brands of shoe outlets, so I should not have any problem, other than the vast amount of walking. These outlet malls are huge. Branson has three: The Shoppes at Branson Meadows, Factory Merchants Mall, and Tanger Factory Outlet.
As a child I loved to go to a shoe store. Dad usually took me shopping for shoes. It was fun as it was about the only time he shared with me alone.
I'll report back Friday.
