A Transition from Squirrels to Chipmunks

When I first saw Pearl, I thought she was a baby squirrel. So did Loretta. But, one day I got a glimpse of a little stripe and realized this may be a different critter. So, I googled chipmunks and learned a little about them.

Back in Jacksonville, Loretta would try hard to catch Earl, our backyard squirrel, to no avail. Now she has the same record with Pearl; though Loretta is fast, she is just not fast enough.

I am working this post into a challenge – The Six Word Saturday Challenge

Target and Beyond

Talk about Southern Hospitality! I experienced this first hand in Target, of all places. I’m used to Publix, my fav grocery store, being full of friendly and helpful employees. But Target? I had no less than six people ask me how I was doing and if I was finding everything okay. One young girl even came back a second time to check on me. But, it wasn’t just Target. When I entered Kohl’s I was greeted my three pleasant workers. And at Babies R Us – same thing.

It could just be that these particular stores had excellent managers and good training procedures. But, I never got this kind of service in Jacksonville, except, of course, at Publix. It sure makes transitioning easier!
