Why JCP is Bankrupt!, My New Baby, Luke, and a Pumpkin

Hi everyone!

Our new sitter here in Edmond was able to stay with Mom for four hours today, so I had the GREAT PLEASURE of meeting my friend, Margaret, for a Steak lunch at Longhorn.  We talked for an hour and a half, so I didn't have much time for anything else.  Four hours goes by really fast!

In the time I did have, I went to JC Penneys which was right in the same parking lot as Longhorn.

I was looking for sweatshirt tops for my Mom which I never found, but I happened to walk by my favorite tennis shoes in the shoe department.  I did not have a pair here at this house, so decided to by a pair of white and a pair of black.  Then I walked over to the check out counter where there were two cash registers.

If I had not left my phone in the car I would have taken a video of this.  The counter was stacked with boxes and various unboxed shoes so there was not a single square inch to put my boxes.  I tried to balance them on top of one of the registers.  Then I started looking for a cashier.

I turned around and around and looked and looked, and then I started saying, "HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, HELLOOOOOOOOOOO, HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?"

Nobody answered and nobody came.

I then walked out into the aisle between the shoes and the clothes, and I said, "HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, HELLOOOOOOO?  I need a cashier please.  HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?

Nobody answered and nobody came.

I walked back over to the shoe counter where there was still nobody.  I hollered back into the two openings into the warehouse, "HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO?"

I really needed the shoes or I would have stacked them with all the other shoes that people had given up on purchasing and just stacked there.

I then walked BEHIND the counter and through the door into the warehouse.  I didn't see anybody there either, so I continued, "HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, IS ANYONE THERE?"

Finally, a girl started moving back in the midst of the shelves, and she came to where I was.  She followed me to the cash registers.  She went to the first register to check me out.  She messed with it a minute, and then she said, "These registers don't work.  We have to go to a different department."

I then followed her to the Beauty Shop where I was finally able to buy the two pair of tennis shoes.

UNBELIEVABLE!  I promise you, it happened just like that.  No exaggeration.  I actually probably hollered "HELLO" 50 times!

I then went to a different department to look at jeans.  I found a pair immediately and went to try them on.  Where there used to be a long row of nice dressing rooms, there was now a large cubby hole with a mirror on the wall.  I said, "I'm not going to try these on without any doors!"

I wandered the length of the store to another dressing room.  Then I went to the checkout counter in that department only to find the cashier staring over and over and over and over at a receipt trying to figure out how to do a return.  I put the jeans down, and I walked out of the store.

How very sad.  NO WONDER they are closing stores and barely getting by.  I would have spent hundreds of dollars there today if there had been half-way decent service and proper dressing rooms.

I've made a couple new videos for those of you who don't see them unless I post them here.

This one is an introduction to our precious new great grandbaby, Luke:

I have not seen Luke since that day, and doesn't look like I will see him again in the three weeks I am here.  I thought they would need my help so I came up for several weeks, but it turns out that Lauren's family is coming to visit them.

So, since I have a lot of time on my hands, I am thinking Christmas.  Doesn't appear our Christmas is going to be anymore exciting than our Thanksgiving.  Just the three of us.  I want to get or make gifts for my good friends, my husband and my Mother.  I may get started on that tomorrow.

Made a video today just blabbering about the cat and Thanksgiving and a pumpkin potholder if you are interested in any of that.

TV time with hubby.

If I get anything besides a potholder made, I'll be back to show you.

Hugs, Joy
