Ame and I never saw eye to eye when it came to shopping in Falmouth. She always felt a responsibility to keep things local and I was alway about saving a buck, even if we needed to travel out of town. I guess that's why when it came time for us to buy a recliner [when she couldn't sleep in a bed] she won out and we overpaid at the local furniture store. But she was happy and that's all that counted at that point.
She would have been proud today. Emrie needed a pair of new tennis shoes and with it being a rainy day we set out on a mission. I thought about making the trip to the Nike outlet in Dry Ridge [after all, gas is cheap] but before we left town I stopped by Houchen's in town. We were waited on by Mr. Houchen himself and he was great. He pulled out every size 11 in the store and even fitted her. I could not resist. To make a long story short, we paid $45 for a pair of pink Nikes. I know I could have gotten a killer deal at the outlet but then again, somebody has to support the little man.
