I went to the commissary at Ft Buchanan today to get some food for the next two weeks. The prices at the local grocery stores here in San Juan are outrageous! What costs $2.50 for ice cream in Oklahoma will cost $7.29 here in San Juan. Happily the same ice cream at the commissary costs $2.69, a fair price.
But because the prices are so good, EVERYBODY who has a connection with the military shops there. I waited a record 54 minutes in line to pay for my groceries! I know it was 54 minutes because I started the stopwatch once I got in line. I'll never complain about a line at Wal-Mart again.
