Got the shock of the season when I took Rosemary out shopping today....where is everybody? Thought it would be packed but the malls weren't even as crowded as a normal Sunday. We started out at Tanger Outlet and thought, well, we're early and LUCKY but when we get to the Myrtle Beach Mall we will be lucky to find a parking place. There were shoppers out but nothing like we were expecting and when we stopped for lunch at Red Lobster it was the same way. We arrived at Red Lobster right at 12:30 which should have been prime lunch time between church and shopping. The place was so empty I think there was an echo. Rosemary has a handicapped parking hanger and I always tell her that she better not let that puppy expire because that is the only reason I take her shopping. Good thing she has a sense of humor. The parking lots were nowhere near capacity and there were regular parking spots as close as the handicapped ones...and this was at 2pm. ALL RIGHT PEOPLE....confession time, was Christmas canceled and nobody told me???
