Yup.  Costco.

To Begin…You know there will be Magic Greeted by Shopping Carts as Large as a VW.

  1. I love this post! We don’t have a Costco where I live — yet. One is supposed to be built next year and I’m eager. Meanwhile, I always go with my friend in London (Canada) when I visit or sometimes when we visit the kids. I love how your framed this post — wonderful photos and a really good look at America “living large!”

  2. America “”living large” for sure…perhaps a sad commentary, but it’s much more fun to see the crazy humor in this place, than all the social issues that swirl all around us.

    1. You’re probably right! I hope the cart guy doesn’t get fired for his crazy lifting stunt. Hope Costco management doesn’t sees the post. All the demonstrators wanted the blog address…you know, now that they’re “famous”…too funny!
