"Where do you shop?"we asked our landlady, Tess.
"Bear Lake has everything. Exit 2 on the 103" We are exit 6.
The drive there ends up being a fool's errand. There is no Bear Lake. What was she talking about?
And then the little gray cells finally kick in. It is what the sign says: Bayer Lake.
It turns out Canada really is a foreign country. Costco only takes Mastercard, not Visa. Whaaat?
But in the US--
She doesn't care what they do in the US. In Canada it's Mastercard.
But look, this is a debit card.'
It's also a Visa Card.
So our loaded cart is left standing next to the register.
We go to see Moonlight, because it has through the roof ratings. We leave in an hour.
We buy three lamps at Home Sense, which is very much like the home store attached to T.J. Maxx.
But there is no TJ Maxx store, although their ads sometimes run in Home Sense. I buy a butter dish.
We eat cinnamon candies on the drive home. I think I see a book store. Chapters. Next time, we'll go snoop out Chapters.
