Memorial Day Walmart findings...

Memorial Day was a do nothing, lazy day at our house. We went on an outing to WalMart and this is what we saw.

An Elly May Clampett Barbie / Beverly Hillbillies
If they have a Granny Barbie from the Beverly Hillbillies...I will be happy. But I did not see one. She might not be "Barbie" material.

And the other interesting thing we saw at WalMart on Memorial Day 2011 was this license plate.

This car tag most likely will not mean a thing to a lot of folks but, to me? It means something, someone, some place, very dear to me.
My Granddaddy Girdner was a car salesman, at...are you ready for it? The Ford Dealer in ANDALUSIA ALABAMA!!! And to see this tag in a Tennessee WalMart parking lot? Weird.

Some of my happiest childhood memories belong in Andalusia Alabama with my Granny and Granddaddy Girdner. And he sold a lot of Ford cars!!!

So, as you see Memorial Day was indeed a day of memory. Memories of childhood. Memories of Grandparents.

It was a good day.
