It’s Berry Season Around Here!

Well, I bought that Costco membership card yesterday. Even got a $10 cash card to spend right away, courtesy of the young man who answered my questions last week. But had a bit of a let down as we went looking for my list of grocery items, and I saw that many of the items […]
