    The good news: The TV news just reported that Walmart is adding back their line of fabrics.

    Tha bad news: Price of gas means you won't be able to afford to GET to Walmart to buy that fabric!!!

    It just gets worse and worse. My car only gets 12 mpg around town, so I'm very careful to make as few trips as possible. I keep a list and shop the ads so I can do all the shopping in the same direction. It's been more than a month since I put gas in the car. People mock me for shopping at Walmart, but I can get most of what I want there. Once, a store had made a mistake and I had to drive back there. I told them how much it cost me to drive back there to fix their mistake and they gave me money to compensate... I was kind of surprised!

    Wow, I wish the stoe I worked for would do that. We have customers that drive quite a ways to get there, sometimes mistakes happen and some do mention the cost of gas that makes the mistake worse.
