The weather yesterday was wet, foggy, cold and nasty. A perfect day to take a drive out to the feed store! This was our first time to visit a Big R Store and we had a lot of fun. That place has just about everything! We started at one side and made our way down every aisle, marveling at all the stuff you can find in a feed store. Neal got drawn to the men's clothing section, where he was intent on finding a decent pair of overalls and a jacket for The Ranch. I was not in a clothes-shopping mood, so while he was trying on overalls, I perused the electric fencing aisle. At one point, an employee asked me if I needed any help and I replied that I was just browsing while my husband tried on clothes. She laughed and commented on the irony of the husband clothes shopping and the wife fence shopping. Trust me, I'd rather fence shop than clothes shop any day of the week!
The primary reason we went to Big R was to see if they had any tomato cages yet, which they did not. However, neither of us came away empty-handed. Neal found a pair of overalls and a matching jacket, and I picked up some sunflower, zucchini and pole bean seeds, two tea towels and a Chickens magazine. And to top it off, they were having a big, one-day sale so we got up to 30% off on some items. And that is how a nasty day turned into a fun-filled adventure at the feed store.
