#627: Stop and Rob Memories

They’re tearing it down.
In case you hadn’t heard, the Stop and Shop
grocery store on Pleasant Street is on its way out.
My daughter and I went on a last sentimental visit:
Where oh where are the One Direction fanzines?

The store stops here. 
Basically, the part that used to be ‘Island Variety’
and ‘Nantucket Wine and Spirits’ is now gone.

Where are my rice cakes?

At least they still have the watermelon candles.
They make me happy.

No, no! No more Annie’s vegetable lasagna.

Hmmmm. What else is missing?

Everything organic.

The posts are still here.
Every one of my kids squeezed through these posts
whenever we went shopping.
It was a tradition.

Now my last baby squeezes through
for the last time.
A poignant moment.

Not for her.
Although the loss of Hall’s Vitamin C drops
seems to be hitting hard.

And the missing beauty products…
We’ll miss you, Old Stop and Rob.
Thanks for the memories.
