At times I forget what happened on which day. We were in town one recent day and popped into DSE to see if there were any bargains to be had and there was a bin full of USB storage sticks at a pretty good price. I bought two. R was admiring phones. I think he is getting itchy phone feet and may soon upgrade his Samsung S3 to a S7.
The following day we caught the train to Moonee Ponds, just for lunch. No real other reason apart from the luxury of a week off work and I like to get out and about. I did have a look at the new tram track layout at Moonee Ponds and we did catch the tram back to town, rather than walk back to the station. We cast an eye around the quite uninteresting new shopping centre and there was a DSE store. I decided to go in and buy two more memory sticks but they had none. Once back in town, I returned to the city DSE store and bought two more there. But what has happened to the shop? In about 24 hours it had nearly been cleaned out of stock. The phones R was looking at were gone, the shelves so bare and very little to buy at all. Even the stock shelves were for sale, well some of them. Remarkable. Over the years we have bought quite a few bits and pieces at DSE and they often had the best price for printer ink. So sad. Thanks corporate greed.
Just to cheer, our lunch was nice enough and we did come across this rather lovely mural in Moonee Ponds. Isn't it a ripper?
