Karen regales me with this picture from a grocery store somewhere in the Wild West, where she resides:

Microwavable Sweet Potatoes

The “Pay Extra for Saran Wrap” movement is growing.

    I thought you’d like that, when I saw it.

    We do baked sweet potatoes all the time. But, I’ll pay about $1.50 for a pound of them, instead of the 10 for $10.00 special that was going on when I took that picture. We don’t do candied sweet potatoes. That’s disgusting.

    If the “average person” shopping in a grocery store forks over $1 for individually wrapped sweet potatoes, there is no recession.

    They’ve added something new. A “tray” of whites, 4 of them, for $2.99.

    I paid $2.99 for 5 pounds of bakers. But then, I’m not rich, or stupid. At least tonight, anyway.
