Holding down the fort

Farm to Market Grocery, Thanksgiving 2007It’s Thanksgiving Day, but Farm to Market Grocery was open until 3 this afternoon, and Central Market South and THE H-E-B (at Congress and Oltorf) were open until 2. Slack’s Chevron was open and the person there before us had bought 57 dollars’ worth of gas; that’s scary, kids. We were happy to discover that our fresh Mary’s turkey from Wheatsville was a better deal than the Mary’s at Central Market South. No turkey could be tastier. At Farm to Market, we found a great apron to be a gift for for a diminutive person, stenciled in red with the FM logo and “78704.” At Central Market, we were happy to replenish the not-too-sweet and very fresh-tasting cider from Fowler Farms in New York State and I was confident that I could pick out the Northern Spy apples (the best pie apple) from all the other unlabeled apples. We were also happy to discover that Rudolph’s Christmas tree stand has been set up and is easily found right next to the Walgreens and Maria’s Taco Xpress complex on South Lamar at Bluebonnet. That makes it easy to slide from today’s holiday right into the holiday season that’s upon us.
