Okay – I’m the first to say that I’m a lucky girl. Joan does the grocery shopping. In fact, she prepares menus, creates the list and does the shopping. I DO help cook the food but she’s my domestic goddess. Make no mistake, we don’t exactly love Kroger anyway. Most of the stores in our area are simply not clean and very creepy.

As part of the campaign we decide to switch to Publix and, although the bill was higher, the experience was worth it. I may not go into a grocery store very often but when Joanie and I went last week to get things for a dinner party we were very happy about it. The Publix in Goodlettsville was great. When we checked out the store manager came up and said “We sure appreciate you!”..okay, did we look that obvious …

As a columnist for O&A I guess I’m passionate about the campaign but geeze, as a consumer. I don’t think we can ever go back to Kroger.

I wish we could afford Plumgood, turnip Truck and Wild Oats fore everything, but we can’t. So.. it’s Publix for the VanReeece’s.. I may even drop off the latest issue for the manger to look at.
