If you zoom-in, you will see my loot from Sam's Club - a dozen Red Roses for my lovely wife and two pillows for me. People at Irving Sam's Club were quite surprised to find a cyclist in "non-traditional shopping attire", shopping at the club, on his bicycle.
Well, there is nothing strange or bizarre about it really, except that out society has managed to out-mode bicycling to the store. I am not exactly sure what all the causes are, but I wouldn't be surprised if a few agreed with me that causes could be a) urban sprawl, b) laziness, etc. No matter what the reasons are, I am happy that there is still a lot of us who want to ride our bikes to places.
