Tomorrow we point the wheels in the direction of Las Vegas, with a two night stop in Williams, Arizona, the gateway to the Grand Canyon south rim.
After our rustic stay in the piney woods, where it has rained every single day, I desperately needed a pedicure before my feet show up in the rather chichi park in Las Vegas.
We also needed some automobile stuff, a small stick vacuum, milk, and bread.
Where can you get all that plus get your taxes done, an eye exam, a hearing aid, plastic surgery(probably) and finish with a Big Mac?
I went to Walmart for a pedicure.
Shopping Dave deposited me at the nail salon and disappeared into the bowels of the giant store.
I picked my color as instructed and sat in the pedicure chair.
Such a relaxing view….
I was done in 20 minutes. Fastest pedicure I’ve ever had and the Flamingo Pink polish I picked looks more like Capri Coral to me but hey, where else can you hear “Attention WalMart Shoppers! “, watch people check out with ammo, a baby pool, and a toilet plunger while someone is scrubbing your feet?
After paying too much for what I got, I found Dave happily filling the shopping cart with crap.
As we headed to the small stick vacuum aisle, he informed me that he didn’t believe we really needed a stick vac.
I put one in the cart, because, of course, we need one.
About this time, he turned and headed down another aisle. In my haste to keep up, I ran my newly polished toe into the back of his shoe.
Fortunately, I’d purchased the polish so I could fix it myself.
I want to note that this wouldn’t have happened pre “adventure.” I would have gone to my nail salon where I would have sat with my newly polished toes under the toe dryer.
I wouldn’t have had to chase Crazed Cart Dave and his big shoes all over hell in Walmart.
However, our last aisle made everything better, and all was forgiven.
I’ll be a little sad to leave these woods tomorrow. As I’ve said before, it’s the woods that soothe my soul, and even with the monsoon rains, it’s been a relaxing ten days.
I and my WalMart feet are on to the next adventure.
