Inquiring minds want to know.

I have a couple questions that have been hanging out in my brain. If you know the answers, please let me know.

First of all, if you are a Wal-Mart customer, have you noticed the number of cars that are parked in the parking lot, near the road? They don't appear to be shoppers. I am so curious as to why they are all parked there. Any ideas?

Secondly, we walked down by the Riverfront and are curious as to the mileage that a loop on the side walk is...yes, there are markers but they make no sense to us. The markers have different colored arrows and a number by them but don't seem to equate to mileage at all. Hmmm. Any walkers out there?

Also, yesterday I become a member of Sam's Club. I am a true adult now. But now I need advice. I was there for about 20 minutes and wasn't sure what the big deal of belonging you all save money by buying bulk? Is that it? Is meat cheaper? Better? I just walked away thinking it wasn't that big deal. But I know people love it and go there often. So help me love it.

I am obsessed with making fudge these days. I make Brooke's recipe (a secret family recipe) but wouldn't mind trying another just to see if it can hold up to Brooke's. I am headed to the food network to see if they have any intriguing recipes. The funny thing is, except for licking the spoon, I don't really eat much of it. (Brooke is Matt B.'s girlfriend in case you were wondering. We love Brooke. (Crazy FIL calls her "Crick"--as in "crook" as in a small river, like a brook.)

And, at the risk of sounding like a crazed fan, I am ticked off that Paula Abdul is not coming back to American Idol. I do NOT LIKE KARA. Grrr. I may not watch. : )

Ok, off to lunch with my wonderful friend Betty! Can't wait to crack up and have good conversation.

Hi, Molly. I am just taking time to sit at the computer and catch up on blogs today. In case you haven't received an answer yet, the cars at Walmart are the employees--must be a fairly new policy.
Can't help you with the RiverWalk. I have neglected to make it there yet this summer.
Sam's Club I love. Their meat is very good and so are their baked goods. I tend to find the best prices on hot dogs, cheese slice, shredded cheese, peanut butter, french fries, basically the staples of our kitchen. I do not understand why anyone buys pop there. Those prices are outrageous--yet, I always see people buying it. Nacho chips and popcorn are also good buys. Canned items can often be found at a better price on sale at Martin's. Anyway, it is also fun to shop at Christmas, especially if you shop for kids. They will have a seasonal aisle with toys that are often a good deal. Hope these answers help and hope to see you soon.
