By that I mean have a happy Christmas everyone and a prosperous New Year to all. There should be a preservation notice on little old grandads who venture near a supermarket on the Saturday before Christmas. For years now Mrs Plym has done the main shop mid-week....and Saturday 7am I've popped into our local Supermarket picking up things like Milk, Bread, Detergent, 5L Bottled Water,...bulky objects etc. I generally drive in and park 4th or fifth car along......pop around a relatively empty store and back to the car in 20 minutes. This morning....SMASH, BANG, WALLOP....queuing to get in to the car park....driving around until I found a space (500 spaces)...couldn't find my type of small trolley....in fact the trolley park was nearly empty...so end up with a rather large trolley....inside it was a super sized bumper car, free for all....they had obviously been open all night by the look of it....shelves where becoming empty and looked extremely sad....you felt that you should of worn a crash helmet and body armour....thank goodness I only need a few things....there where couples standing around with a large trolley each....hubbies were pushing one and towing another behind them as the little misses darted here and there bring items back to the trollies...horror of horrors....I made it back to the car, having taken twice as long to do my little bit of shopping, I was a spent force and back to the refuge of a locked car, whilst I took deep breathing exercises to regain my composure. Did I use to be one of those hubbies years back...protecting our purchases from desperate shoppers, who could see that one item they couldn't find sitting in your trolley....I'm sure it was never this bad in the seventies and eighties.....consumerism has taken over the world....and the total cost of computer games for the grandchildren, cost now what my first car cost back in the 1960's....£200 for a Austin A35.....help, stop the world and let me get off. HAPPY HOLS EVERYONE...and success for Argyle for the rest of the season as well.
