Smith and Edwards

We have my nephew Connor with us for a few days. For some reason, he and Abe have been pleading to go to Smith and Edwards: a store which, for those of you who are not familiar with it, boasts having anything you could possibly ever want or need – if you can just find it.

And, if all of the things you have ever wanted or needed happen to be along the lines of military surplus, that is probably a fairly accurate claim.

We just mostly looked at toys; rode the old plastic bull that must always be ridden; glanced at army gear and tents; bypassed fishing, guns and ammo, horse tack, camping goods and Wrangler jeans to get to the ten-for-a-dollar candy section; then bought some Scouting rope for the kids to make bracelets.
