Let's start with layouts. I'm getting close to finally fluffing up my blog. It's so blah right now and as soon as I get the house really clean and have a garage sale that I have been trying to do for the last year then I'll hopefully have time. I've looked at a couple of free blog sites, Pyzam and I think the other is The Cutest Blogs. I originally tried using one from Pyzam but had so much trouble with it I gave up. I found a layout I really like on the Cutest Blog Site but it looks like you end up purchasing other things you need, a header for instance. I don't mind the purchase part as long as it's reasonable. So all my creative friends and relatives do you have any advice you can give me on this? I love all of your layouts.
Why aren't there Del Monte Pickles in Dallas?
I grew up with Kosher Del Monte Dill Pickle halves. I love those pickles. Eat them straight from the jar, on sandwiches (especially peanut butter and pickle) or make little toothpick appetizers with pickle, cheese, and salami. My kids really like them as well and then quite a few years ago the stores in the Dallas area quit carrying them. I have looked at all the major grocery stores Tom Thumb, Albertsons, and Kroger. No Del Monte pickles! Target and Walmart do not carry them either. Weird thing is they all carry Del Monte canned vegetables and fruit. So what's up with the pickles?
My friend Carol who used to live across the street from us has a daughter who is one week younger than Molly. Molly and Ashlee grew up together and I guess I must have introduced her to these pickles. I didn't know how fond she was of them until this summer. Ashlee went to college at Stephen F. Austin University which is in East Texas. She graduated this summer and is now working at the same hospital I work at in Dallas as an RN. (I'm so proud of her!) She found my office one day and brought me a card and 2 jars of Del Monte Pickles. I was in heaven for the short time they survived in my house. I asked her where she got them and she told me she had to order a whole case off the Internet. Now that is love for a pickle.
I found the Del Monte web site and emailed them asking why we can't get them in Texas. I haven't heard back.
They even have Organic ones now.
But not in Texas.
