Hope SPRINGS Eternal!

Supposedly we had a light snow during the morning’s rush hour that slowed down the morning commute.  I wouldn’t know, because Mlle. Renee stayed in bed until eight when the shrill ringing of the phone woke us up. Naturally, it was Anne from Credit Services pitching the latest scam spiel. No matter how many times they change her name, the voice always sounds the same. Unfortunately, because my mother’s name was Anne I was able to go into my usual rant of select profanities hoping someone human in Sicklesia, Arfgroanistan, or wherever these robo-calls originate is listening in and will be highly offended.

Then I dressed warmly and went to the stupid market for a little shopping.

Now, I like ice cream and I love root beer. So naturally I thought … ???DSC09425

But it turned out to be SHOPPING MISTAKE #864. I’ll put them aside for when my nephews visit. They eat anything with COOKIE on the label.

On the good side of my shopping trip … DSC09427

I’m not crazy about saltines, but give me matzos for eating with chili or soup or just snacking.
