So I lie. It's not a real county store. It's a gas station that sells booze and food stuff. You can get that all important Miracle Whip and Velveeta cheese and your smokes. What I like to do when I'm in line is read the community bulletin board.
Besides all the kids looking to mow lawns and will do yard work, today I also saw the following.
I saw that there's going to be a LIVER AND ONION feed! Some people are trying to raise money for some family that had a fire. Gee, I don't really see a liver and onion feed really drawing a crowd, but hey, maybe that's just me. Maybe it will be a real "barn burner" ( Snickering to myself!)
Also Betty Sue ( not her real name) is Turing 18! The flyer said "If you can read this then come on over to Betty's Sue's 18th birthday party!" And, yep, it's at the trailer park! Bring your own booze. I think that I will miss that.
One big thing that I have noticed here in Wisconsin is that the small towns really do pull together and help out their neighbors in need. Over the year I have seen lots of flyer's about dinners to raise money for others due to illness, accidents, ect. In fact, Applebee's restaurant is always having a pancake feed on most Sundays, they are to help people raise money. When you drive by you will see a sign that has the date and reason for it. I think that it's nice. In Anchorage you never saw that.
