Beauty-ful Downtown Falmouth

I swear, if I hear that phrase one more time I'm going to become a vegetarian. Everyone tells me that Ebels does great business. Why do they have to advertise so (*#R&$#@ much?

For a tiny, out-of-the-way supermarket and hardware with bankers hours and closed Sundays because of their faith, they seem to do quite well. I think part of the reason, too is because they don't put all their eggs in one basket. They do meat processing, jerky and sell clothes. When the hardware got its own building, they converted the space into a coffee shop. Plus, they're building a new store in Reed City to replace the shuttered Vic's.

Good for them, though Mr. Ebels can be a little annoying.

I went for a loong ride to check it out one day. Very nice sizeable store with a small store feel. I even rode the elevator that we have all heard about many times. I must say there is nothing really beautiful about downtown Falmouth, just farm industry, old buildings etc. an inside joke I guess.

Honestly, I think what really bugs me is the pronunciation of "beauty-ful." I know, it's a gripe about a small thing. But I've had nothing to do for almost 3 months now and am going crazy. Apologies to Ebels.

It’s a hook, albeit a flimsy one, but it’s working.

They stick in your head, if not in yer heart.

Earworms are a type of marketing. It's the same technique that jingles employ. I just wonder what his annual budget it for TV.

It worked for Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In and "Beautiful Downtown Burbank".
