Yes, We Have No Bananas

Today is Monday. We decoded to do our grocery shopping again at Albertsons. Here’s what’s different from last Friday. The first thing we noticed was they removed all the tables and chair near the Starbucks stand. Grrrrrr. We usually like to sit and chat about what’s on sale, what we need. Not today. Do your shopping and get out of here.

It was a challenge to find a grocery cart. Paula eventually snagged one. Parking wasn’t as bad as Friday.

Checkout lines were shorter. 8 out of 10 lines open for business. Wait time about 10 minutes for checkout. In the produce section, they were out of several different fruits and vegetables, including bananas. Made me think of an old song titled “Yes, We Have No Bananas“.

Here are a couple of pictures of the produce section.

They were out of green beans but there were plenty of brussel sprouts. I guess brussel sprouts are not that important for the end of the world crowd.

There was a moderate supply of fish and meats. We bought some salmon that we like. One can see what’s important for end of world crowd. Sold out of canned soups and such. But in the same aisle there was plenty of ketchup, pickles and salad dressing. Pasta was pretty much sold out.

Dairy was pretty much fully stocked. We got our 1% milk, eggs and half and half. We talked to our friend “Dairy Dan” I told him. “Not hiding in the refrigerator?”. Dan is going to Boston next month. He had planned on going to a Boston Celtics game. Very sad. He was looking forward to that part of his trip.
