There's No Accounting for Taste!

my mother always told us,
"Simplicity is Elegance"
and I have taken this to heart,
I feel this is true for my taste in jewelery...
my wedding band & engagement ring are evidence of my simple taste in sparkly things

how do I take a pic of my ring without making my hands look so old!?
I also know that jewelry is a very personal choice...
I once had a friend say to me,
"you can never judge the names people choose for their children or their Christmas trees, it's just too personal!"
I'm going to add jewelry to that list...
maybe I just need to moisturize more often!
But I'm just feeling like the jewelry that I saw today at WinCo is just something that I will never understand...
something that I'm hoping I never 'own' or have to wear...
or just not show my dry cracking knuckles!
today, while shopping at WinCo...oh, the joys...
the lady at the check-stand next to me was showing her cashier her new anklet...
one issued to her by the Shasta County Parole Department...
because apparently a jury of her peers deemed her guilty worthy!...
it was the most amazing thing I think I have ever witnessed inside of WinCo...
the lady removed her rain boot, pulled up her pants leg, hiked her foot up on the counter, pulled OFF her sock, to show off her 'new' anklet!!!  AMAZING....

That is CRAZY! Once when Brad and I were there shopping some crazy guy was screaming throughout the store and then spilled milk all over the milk aisle. At that point he the cops showed up and he was wheeled out on a gurney--I'm assuming he had some psychotic break there.

I just about blew coffee out of my nose! That was so funny/awful! I miss Winco.

Not surprised at all....one of the many reasons I gave up Winco as a new years res...TWO years ago. Maybe give up Winco for Lent? Lol.... Oh and I have the same prob with my hands....they look fine to me until I take a picture of them, then they turn old.

Winco tends to just make me sad.... It is almost sometimes worth paying more somewhere else. But it does show real life for many in Redding.....

Really? I would have loved to see her ankle bracelet! Amazing that she could fit it in her rain boot! That doesn't scare me from shopping at Winco. I try to go early in the morning before the weirdos wake up!
