Back to the daily grind...

Pour Les
Hommes
By Mervyn's

100% SILK
MADE IN
ITALY

DRY CLEAN
ONLY

I think there's an actual PATTERN here, but it's too much work to find it.

Heck, I'm not even sure Mervyn's is still in BUSINESS these days. Well, probably in California they still are. They sure all closed around here, though.

This weekend I watched it pour down rain while going to MENARDS (where I saved big money) and, later, the OLD COUNTRY BUFFET because Saturday is BBQ NIGHT.

Sunday was the most perfect, gorgeous, 60 degree day so we and the parents went to the fairgrounds for the Antique Show/Flea Market/Piles of Crap to Look at And Perhaps Purchase. I *almost* pulled the trigger on a large Dr Pepper sign except my father-in-law reminded me that it'd be a long walk home. Dinner at RED LOBSTER. Lord, we had a lotta food this weekend.

And I didn't visit the board ONCE. Hopefully you didn't notice because YOU went out all weekend, too!

Right now it's 80 and I have no idea why I couldn't try to find a way to work outdoors....I say that, but we all know that my current work outfits demand a controlled climate. Nobody likes "ring around the collar".

BYE

I will confirm that Mervyn's still exist (at least in California). The Fresno/Clovis area has at least two of them, neither of which I ever shop at, unless they've got a really good sale on shoes, and, I happen to be needing shoes at that time. Doesn't happen often, because the only time I wear normal shoes is to work, so I can get at least six months use out of one pair before they don't offer any support anymore. The rest of the time? Birkenstocks.

There are Mervyn's aplenty in the Northwest.

EDIT: In fact, according to this there are "over 250 stores in 13 states."

Well, turns out I remembered wrong. When Target sold Mervyn's last year, they closed all the Minnesota stores, but JUST those stores. I guess it was part of the deal.

I bet it's "over 200 in 12 states" now, if they were being honest...looking through the old wire stories, there were at least nine stories in the Twin Cities metro alone, and the "257 in 13" number was quoted at the time of the sale BEFORE the MN stores were closed.

Thanks once again for reading - this has been another episode of NOBODY CARES BUT ME
