” Excuse Me” I don’t mean to intrude on your little get-together, but you leave me no choice. Maybe you haven’t noticed, but you’re gathered in the middle of the produce aisle(but can be any hallway, path, tunnel, or other public space which serves to provide access to elsewhere.) Although I respect your right to…

“thankyou my friend”

I stopped by my favorite Publix this morning to pick up several things for a quick trip to Charlotte.  One of the courtesy clerks always “double bags” my purchases and if not busy insists on carrying them to the jeep. With a smile his parting greeting is always “thankyou  my friend” Now for those of…

Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut ……

A HANDFUL OF PISTACHIOS DAILY HAS BEEN PROVEN TO REDUCE THE RISK OF LUNG AND OTHER CANCERS ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. WHEN IN YOUR LOCAL GROCERY STORE LOOK FOR THE STORE BRAND IT IS JUST AS GOOD AND EFFECTIVE AS THE MORE EXPENSIVE ONES.  

what you find parked outside Publix

One, two, three heads with floppy ears I counted, appearing and peering up from the front seats; there were some more bobbing around in the back of the vehicle. I lost count. there seemed to be an entanglement of canine bodies and from the middle of it was “keep away,” barking. A large man in…

YOU KNOW ……

The other day as I was pulling into Publix parking lot I saw an older lady pushing a cart full of grocery bags. Something told me to get out and assist her, but I kept looking for a parking space.  As fate would have it I eventually parked right beside her Crown Victoria.  As I…

SHE ASKED …..

JUST SEEMS WRONG SOMEHOW …..

Vegetarians and vegans cite eating meat as inhumane and wrong. So why – while at my neighborhood Publix today – did I spot a display stand dedicated to vegetarian bacon bits? What am I missing??

I KNOW I’M PROBABLY LATE TO THE GAME BUT …

How have I missed out on RedBox? I walk past it multiple times a week going in and out of Publix. Sitting at the light I see one in front of Walgreens and this afternoon I see one in front of a GSU dormitory across from the parking deck at Crawford Long. Red Box is…

I BLAME MY MOTHER…

You see, we all grow up learning little pearls from our parents, but I contend that our mother’s influence on our social graces far exceeds that of our fathers. For example, my mother always said you can’t show up empty handed to a party. Could I have made something easier? (Don’t judge me. I can…

DEAR PUBLIX, IT’S ME NOT YOU …..

Dear Ansley Publix, I realized this week that our relationship just isn’t working out. It’s me not you. I admit to seeing others. When North Ave, Plaza Midtown and Atlantic Station stores opened closer to the house I snuck behind your back to shop. But I always came back. Your front of the house associates…
