Rest Day

The weather forecast was rather dire this morning. Weather alerts are in effect for the area where we are and where we're going and Dick needs to rest his sore legs. We decided to take a rest day. The Flying Goose Inn generously allowed us to do all our dirty (really dirty!) laundry in their facility - a real bonus.

I am appreciating more than ever the local gathering places in Saskatchewan's villages. We went to M.O.M.S. (Merchandise on Main Street) to get a soft serve ice cream this afternoon. The place was packed. Once again - get your own coffee, pay for it by putting money in the can before you leave. Either the person on duty, today it was Gail, or one of the customers will provide refills.
Here, you can get breakfast or lunch when the kitchen is open, buy an STC bus ticket, visit with friends, order Avon products, find jam, jellies, and chokecherry syrup,

buy a raffle ticket for the quilt on the back wall (the 6th annual quilt raffle)

go in the back rooms and buy fabric, sewing supplies, gifts, toys, souvenirs, bling, Red Hat clothing,

items made by local artisans, rent a video, and there's more.

M.O.M.S is also the local Culligan Water distributor, Kwala-T Dry Cleaning agent, provides unsecured wireless Internet access and a massage lounge chair, and sells Juice Plus+, Discovery Toys, two newpapers, and offers quilting classes and gift wrapping. Is there a Female Entrepreneur of the Province Award? Would someone please nominate Betty-Ann Tallon?
