It seems to happen without warning here in Minnesota. I was caught out once when I was riding my bike … it was warm and sunny when I left the house… an hour later we were in a full blown tornado…. so I sheltered in Wendy's !!!!!! and ate an ice cream…..!!!
It's happened at least once each trip…. one time Joan and I were stuck in the car outside a quilt shop…. the hail beat down on the windows and I thought they would break with the pressure… well we figured that if we died in the storm at least it was outside a quilt shop….
It's humid and warm and when the heat hits the 10.000 lakes in the state… it makes for interesting weather….
Yes, I went to the Mall of America today.
I have been coming here for years… and today was the busiest I've ever seen it…
People were buying, they were laden down with bags…. so I think the economy is on the rise…. not that one can judge it by the Mall of America… but !!!
I walked around with a permanent smile…it's so interesting. I saw a man buying one of the "tuck it all in corsets" advertised on TV for his partner… Hmm, It was hard to suppress a giggle.
The fashion trend is the 80's very interesting, very floral and post hippie.
Orange everything is the rage, bags, shoes, sneakers but I didn't see too many people with orange glasses.
I went to the movie "Proposal" and laughed out loud at the antics on the screen.
Oh, I did buy a new bag and purse….
I'm sorry to say, but I can get the things I use much cheaper here in the USA. "Fossil"
