After an exhausting drive through the Southwest from Los Angeles to Colorado, we decided to take some R&R at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Castle Rock, Colorado. Wal-Mart provided everything we needed: a free place for the Hedge to stay, food to make dinner, and our new 42″ flat screen television. The Dreamworks animated film OVER THE HEDGE never looked better!
We were amazed at how inexpensive a 42″ flatscreen television is (rumors blame this on – or credit it to – the continued devaluation of the Yuan we are told). We were also surprised at how easily big boxes like Wal-Mart allow customers to return merchandise. Wal-Mart agreed to take the television back the next morning simply because we complained of it’s awkward fit in the Hedge. Nobody asked us if we bothered to measure the space before we purchased the television.
