    jdouglas13 - now that was funny! Usually you are asking for the Clayton shoppers to leave a deal or two. I had to read your post a couple times to understand what you wanted.

    Yay for a good sale/coupon deal on Cabot Cheese.

    Also, will y'all please wipe out the Eggland deal at the Clayton HT. I really need a RC more than I need more eggs. Thanks! ;)
