Oh, what a heart-warming read! And yes, you're so right about shopping in Dixie! LOL! I just received a recipe in the mail from a new 'friend' I met in much the same way the other day. : ) I really like this endearing story...can you tell?! LOL

I talk about the difference in the south and the north to everyone! Growing up in N.C. I was accustomed to the slow pace and the grocery stores and shops. Hey, they even bag and carry out your groceries! This really was enjoyable to me as I so easily related to the story. Well written and I can attest to the truth you so skillfully wrote about the MC
getting used to the unfriendly cashiers and the
need for privacy and a faster pace once you've move away from Dixie. It's a sad thing, isn't it?

Just delightful! I so enjoyed taking this trip through the store with you - I wish it were like that here! Great details.

This is SO well-written, and I cringed with every word--I would HATE that! I don't think I'd ever get used to it, like your narrator did. Great job--you grabbed me and wouldn't let go.

I really enjoyed this. It's so true! I love shopping in the South. You created the picture of just exactly how it is!
