No Raisin Bran left at Russ's, but I forgot to get a raincheck! Oh well, still a pretty good shopping day.


  1. No Raisin Bran left? What happened? Oh I know, everyone in Lincoln read this blog and bought it up before you could get to it.

  2. I guess there will be a lot of 'regular' people out there.
