What’s going on with Giant

Well Giant is open. Shopping at 8am there is the way to go as there aren’t any crowds and it is okay provided you don’t need any seafood or fresh baked goods. Over in the $1 section are some throw away paint brushes. I usually grab a bunch of those when I know I’m going to tackle a paint job where I know I’m going to be too lazy to clean them and dry them out. They also have putty knives in the $1 section.
Across the aisle from the $1 items are the seasonal items. Among them, PINK FLAMINGOS!!! For less than $20 a pair of tacky, tacky pink flamingos can be yours. I think I may set a whole flock out in the yard. But I resisted. Besides I have a pair in the basement, they just need legs. They have the citronella candles. So far I’ve been keeping the mosquitoes at bay with lots of incense burning around me.
When I checked out the cashier, an older fellow who has been at the store for years, asked of I lived over on 14th. He asked because the Giant over at the Tivoli Theater in Columbia Heights will be opening soon and he’ll be working over there. He says it is the most modern Giant in the area, even more modern than the Giants out in the suburbs.

  1. I bought the flamingos.
    I’m trying to figure out how to display them in the window.

    If I had a yard, I’d have a herd.

  2. Fishing wire.
    Wrap some around flamingo’s neck then take a drill and drill two small holes in flamingo’s top rear (as a lot of weight seems to be back there) and run wire through that.

  3. I drove by the soon-to-open Tivoli Giant last night. I spotted stock on their shelves! So any day now, it will be open for service – hopefully with a salad bar, deli counter, butcher, and seafood shop!
    I must say it looks really shiny and bright inside.

    Do you recall the name of the ‘older fellow who has been at the store for years?’ I’ll have to say hello and welcome to him come opening day.

  4. Don’t remember his name. I can give you a general description, about 6 foot, black gentleman with a mustache and glasses, and a gentle demeanor.
