Target and.......Tennis????

(to set this post up) Alex and I went to Target today after his doctor's appointment. The nearest Target is about 30 miles away, so I don't get to go too often.

I've learned that 11:00 on a Thursday morning is a great time to go. There was nobody there!! I could browse leisurely. (Alex slept through most of my browsing)

Now, there are some things that go together - apple pie and ice cream, peanut butter and jelly, little boys and dogs, and ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong. But - did you know that Target goes with ladies who play tennis? While I was at Target I counted 10 - yes you heard me right - 10 ladies who were there in their little tennis outfits. (and some of them shouldn't have had such little outfits)

I'm not aware of an indoor tennis facility particularly close to Target, but there must be. I was just waiting for a tennis match to breakout in the home furnishings aisle.

(and Alex got a good report at the doctor's office - he's now 25% for weight - 18 lbs 9 ounces - and 50% for height - he did get four shots and blood drawn to check for iron...he wasn't happy!!)

I'm w/Alleen 30 MILES to the nearest Target (or Targhay as we call it in our house)! Target is always crowded so that is pretty cool that you have discovered the empty period. Hmmm, ladies tennis? That is sort of strange.
