Kickass and grocery shopping

Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper makes no apology for yearning for the good old days when grocery shopping—as done by his dear old mother meant standing in front of a counter and reading from a grocery list that sent Harry Meyers scurrying about his small Barron, WI store to assemble the requested items which were then deposited in Mom’s shopping basket.

This action occurred after Harry had checked in Mom’s crate of eggs and tallied up her egg credit.

This yearning for another time became intense recently when Phyllis sent the keeper to the store for “canned lemon juice.”

He could not find it, of course, nor could he find anyone to help him.        As time and aisles went on and on, he had visions of a news story lead that went, “Old man rescued after several days of wandering grocery store aisles in search of canned lemon juice. Tells authorities he has no egg credit nor does he know just where to insert/swipe or tap the damn credit card.”

The keeper misses Mom and Harry.
