Our Loaf and Jug

What kind of title is that? ...What kind of name is that for a convenience store? It's the name for our convenience store! I laughed so hard the first time I read the sign. Seriously, Loaf-n-Jug!? You couldn't come up with something better than Loaf-n-Jug!? Well, its original, I'll give 'em that!

Now, I know the name is a little rough, but the Loaf-n-jug is very near and dear to our hearts. The Loaf-n-Jug, aka "The Bailey Mall" is the hang-out-spot, the happenin' place; it's where you will see your peeps!! It's a grocery store, a diner, a movie rental store, an ice cream parlor and a gas station; it has it all! The ten minutes it takes us to get to the Loaf-n-Jug is something I will always be thankful for!

Now let me explain it's amenities with some pictures:

movie rental



gas station


lumber yard


park


ice cream parlor


bank


hardware store


trendy boutique


bakery


diner


Its got it all!



You never have to be concerned with how you look when you go to the "mall". It doesn't matter if you wear two different shoes or wear your husbands shoes for that matter... it's a judge free zone. Make-up is not required, pajamas get a thumb's-up and a pony tail is standard (even for some of the gentlemen). There's a feeling of "we are all in this together" when you visit the good ol' L and J!

When my Aunt came to visit, she started something that has stuck in our house. Whenever she would refer to the Loaf-n-Jug she would call it something different, making her way through her list of words that go together. So now, we don't just call it the Loaf-n-Jug, but we call it by any two words that fit together with an "n" in the middle. Here are some examples!


Tids-n-bits
Fluff-n-fold
Kibbles-n-bits
Bread-n-butter
Toast-n-jam
Shuck-n-jive
Peas-n-carrots
Curds-n-whey
Please-n-thank you


Do you have any other name suggestions to add to our ongoing list?

I love that it's open 24 hrs too. :) What would we do w/out "This N That", "Bread N Butter", "Puss N Boots"? hahaha. Thanks for my laugh this morning...SO needed it! :D
