except for bookstores it's an activity I avoid. however Regina loves it. so between 4 operas & 2 movies & a score of galleries & museums we hit the shops. I actually made a list of things I wantd ahead of time. & naturally -- my cousin got me thru the whole list in 2 hours the very first day she was here.
I did get a flat screen tv & a new phone. the latter does more than I need & it's complicatd as hell but I'm determind to be a 21st century citizen in good standing.
