Lovers On The Go























Look out world! Make way, step aside! We are running amok in public, hugging, smooching and carrying on. And with no thought to the disgust or feelings of others. That's because we are lovers on the go!!! How did this drastic change come about? A simple trip to Whole Foods this evening. Since it was a Friday evening, they were very busy, and we were searching for a good checkout line. Way at the end, there was one that was not very busy, so we hurried to it. Much to our surprise, this lane was Lover's Lane, for lovers on the go only!!! It was designated by a sign, and an archway of netting and flowers under which couples walk to the conveyor belt. We began to turn back, but a clerk informed us to go right ahead and check out. I questioned her as to whether we actually qualified as lovers on the go, seeing as we are old and I was in a motorized scooter. She assured us that we could go right ahead, so we did. And here I thought we were geezers. Will wonders never cease? The counter was a veritable wonderland of love, with the computer surrounded by hearts! And on the way out, I discovered that they were actually selling love! It seemed pretty expensive to me, but you can't really put a price on love, can you?

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

A Lover's Lane checkout, what a great idea for Valentines! You and Phil are a loving couple so you definitely qualified.

Me, I never turn down a quick exit from a store. I would have told them my fella was in the car waiting!

Regina said...

This was clever, cute and colorful! What a neat idea- but even better from your perspective! Your header is fabulous too..what a splash of pink!! (Something made me check on you)

Ann said...

Selling love? Isn't that illegal?...lol
What a cute idea this was and it made for really lovely post too.

Sandra said...

phil looks sooo cute under that frilly thing and you are still lovers, lovers for many years so it was appropriate to go through that lane. great shot in the header and your blog is reallllly festive

Hey! We've got Whole Foods here. I'm going to have to go up and check out their Valentine's signs. I LIKE that store. I hardly ever go there though because one is a zillion miles north and the other one is about as many miles south. I could wander around in there for hours though.

hip-chick said...

That was a funny post Ginny. I think you and Phil would qualify as lovers on the go. In fact you have been going at love for longer than most of the others that were in that line!

Hello Ginny, thanks for the visit to our blog via Sandra. It seems we are (almost) neighbors both living in Virginia - you are in the mountains and we are on the VA eastern shore. Also both in small towns, ours has slightly over 500 folks. Enjoyed your Valentine's shopping post.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Ginny, Love your background... Great hearts!!!!

One is never TOO OLD to find and have love... George and I didn't meet til we were 59--and now that we are almost 69, our love just continues to grow and grow....

Glad you were "Lovers on the Go"... CUTE CUTE CUTE....

Hugs,
Betsy

"Lover's Lane" Not far from where I live is a road many people know as lover's lane.Jake and I have been down that road many a time,sometimes to share a moment of tenderness,but mostly to look for birds to photograph.Have a great day.

Of course that was just the right line/lane for you two - always on the go, and with lots of love!

Leave it to Whole Foods. I love them! Today's header is gorgeous!

Best,
Bonnie

Stephanie V said...

Well, of course...I LOVE it. A Lovers Lane checkout. If anyone should go through, you and Phil are the couple I'd vote for.

Mary said...

You are too dear! What a great story. The pictures are fantastic and I just love the concept of "Lover's Lane" at Whole foods. I think the check-out clerk was very perceptive. I hope you two love birds have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Melanie said...

That is so cute! Of course you can use the Lover's Lane! Love has no age limit!
Have a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day!♥

George said...

What a cute idea. And I think you and Phil definitely qualify to go through that checkout lane.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, You always seem to have very creative posts on your blog and today's is no exception! Have a wonderful Saturday!

Doris Sturm said...

I don't think there's an age limit on LOVE, if anything, true love should get even better with age - and from what I can tell, you two qualify for Lover's Lane any time of year -
Happy Valentine's Day on Monday!

S. Etole said...

I wish tulips were that inexpensive here ...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What a novel idea to have a "lovers lane" at Whole Foods! I think you and the Mr. definitely qualify, Ginny, as you two are very much in love and show it!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Terry said...

Bobbi said...

This was so cute! So you and Phil are Lover's on the Go... Was Phil surprised or did he know it all along? And what a cute valentine couple you are!!
Thanks for sharing this Ginny. I've never known a store to do this...

Remington said...

Cool idea!

LV said...

What a wonderful thought on the part of that grocery store. None of them around here would do that. Age makes no difference when it comes to love.

Terra said...

Hi, I came over from Lady, Liberty, Patriot. I am a bit jealous because at the Whole Foods store where I live and shopped today, there was no Lovers checkout. Your story is cute!

Nezzy said...

Geese...lovers lane right there in the store...I love it!!!

Even more I love that you and your hubs qualified....see, those youngens don't have a thing on us oldies but goodies!!! :o)

God bless ya and enjoy your weekend filled will all kinds of lovin'!

Fred Alton said...

I think that is just so neat, and you and Phil were encouraged to go through the "Lovers on the Go" lane! God Bless you both with long life and lively loving for the rest of your days.

Chatty Crone said...

Gee Rick and I went to Harry's this past week and we didn't see the Love to go Lane - glad you did.

Your blog picture on the top is so gorgeous!

Such a bright cherry blog - filled with light and of course - love...

Love,sandie

Tracy said...

Ginny,
Lucky you...Lover's Lane! It appears you had a wonderful time :)
Happy Day to you and your love!

Ruthi said...

Awesome! Lovers on the Go. They should have this all year round to keep the love going.

Yasmin said...

This is an adorable idea! By the way I love the new background for your blog!! Love, Love, Love!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I am just about to put up a new recipe; Orange and lime Cheesecake! It is the first cheescake I have made! It looks pretty good, if I do say so myself!

Fun times, Ginny!! And a creative store manager apparently! Great verse to end the post!

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Hi Ginny. This is so cute. Very clever. I like Whole Foods. My son is a manager at one of their stores and I will ask him if they did this at his store. BTW, his birthday is on Valentine's Day. Gotta love that!
Have a blessed weekend, Sue
