Blog: Stores, Shops

Wal-Mart:  The highlight of all our camping trips is a pilgrimage to Wal-Mart.  My wife loves this store but we live far from them.

Mephisto:  I will never go there just because it is named after a demon.  Why would anyone name their store that?

Ci-ci's:  All you can eat pizza, more than 10 varieties.  The wife & kids went there tonight because of a school event.  She brought her Discover card only to find out that the store takes anything but.  The manager let them in anyway then I got a call in the middle of the Capitol Beltway about this.  The reception was unclear that I ended up at Chuckie Cheese's.  After a short phone tag, we finally got it right.

Chuckee Cheese's:  Kids games and rides with a restaurant.  Free entrance.  Good for children's parties.  Security is tight.  If you come with a kid, you and the kid get marked with an invisible number.  No one but you can come out with your kid.  They check that number at the door before you go.

Rite-Aid:  They practically give stuff out for free.  You pay for it first then get your money back in something like a rebate check.  Shopping there is one of my wife's hobbies.

Dave and Busters:  Lots of video games and a restaurant.  I take my kids there one at a time on our father and child night.  So, far I have done it twice this year.  It makes me closer to my kids so I become more than just a parent.  I become a daddy and my orders become more palatable.

Video: Fiddler on the roof - Do you love me ? (with subtitles & lyrics)

When my wife lost her wedding ring, this question came to mind.  I recalled the song and got my answer there.

(Tevye)
Do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I what?

(Tevye)
Do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love you?
With our daughters getting married
And this trouble in the town
You're upset, you're worn out
Go inside, go lie down!
Maybe it's indigestion

(Tevye)
"Golde I'm asking you a question..."

Do you love me?

(Golde)
You're a fool

(Tevye)
"I know..."

But do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love you?
For twenty-five years I've washed your clothes
Cooked your meals, cleaned your house
Given you children, milked the cow
After twenty-five years, why talk about love right now?

(Tevye)
Golde, The first time I met you
Was on our wedding day
I was scared

(Golde)
I was shy

(Tevye)
I was nervous

(Golde)
So was I

(Tevye)
But my father and my mother
Said we'd learn to love each other
And now I'm asking, Golde
Do you love me?

(Golde)
I'm your wife

(Tevye)
"I know..."
But do you love me?

(Golde)
Do I love him?
For twenty-five years I've lived with him
Fought him, starved with him
Twenty-five years my bed is his
If that's not love, what is?

(Tevye)
Then you love me?

(Golde)
I suppose I do

(Tevye)
And I suppose I love you too

(Both)
It change a thing
But even so
After twenty-five years
It's nice to know

Music Video: Randy Travis - Three Wooden Crosses

A song about a hooker, a preacher and a farmer who were in a fatal traffic accident.  An inspiring presentation of God's Providence and the meaning of life.  Enjoy.  Ric

Video: Hollywood Stars Share Reflections about the Rosary

During this month of the Rosary, let us hear the stars share their Marian devotion. in less than 2 minutes. All of them have depth and insight - new for some, expressed in a new way for others. I know you'll get something out of it - for sure.
