DAY-OLD-DELIGHTS

If you can manage to hit Wal-Mart before 10:00 a.m. you will be in time for the treasures of the day-old-bread racks. Each Wal-Mart hides their day-old shelf in a different place and always it is away from the bakery. Usually it will be back by the dairy products.

Early arrival yields the best treats. We're not just talking bread here. We're talking cakes and pies, cup cakes as well as bread and croisants. We always buy more than we can eat, so we pick our favorites, if they are on the rack, and we freeze them. Our family can always count on donuts or cream horns and other delights when they visit.

Children grow up with special memories of visiting their grandparents. Most recall the smell of fresh cookies baking or bread right out of the oven. Our grandchildren will grow up and exclaim with loving wonder, "Awe, the sweet sound of Wal-Mart plastic containers cracking open in the morning!"
