Tuesday

So everyone was saying “stay home”. Well it’s been six days since we last went to the supermarket. We were out of milk, cream and white wine. Getting critical. Got to get out of this place.

So we through caution to the wind and headed out to the store. Filled up with fruits and vegetables, meat and chicken. First off though we headed to the Starbucks.

We still aren’t allowed to sit and discuss shopping lists or other important stuff. So we just got our drinks and headed off to shop.

Albertson’s supply chain is catching up. They’re not at 100% but moving in that direction. Dan told us that they didn’t sell out of toilet paper until about 1:30 pm.

We talked with our friend Dan in the dairy aisle. He had planned to travel to Boston to see a Red Sox game and a Celtics game. Alas, it was not to be. Trip cancelled. He got us a quart container of half/half and slapped a 50% off label on the carton. It’s good to have friends in high places.

So news people are trying to tell everyone to shop for two weeks worth of groceries. Are you kidding me? I haven’t a clue where we would put all of that stuff or how to pay for it. As it was, our grocery bill was about $275.

Part of the cost was for a bottle of gin and a box of Pinot Giorgio. But still, it wasn’t top shelf gin.

Canned goods are slowly getting restocked including soups. I am happy to say that there is still no run on martini olives. Toilet paper is still in short supply.

What else? We’re still healthy. We will be hanging here at home until next Monday or so. We’ll be zooming with our senior Bible study group tomorrow. It will be good to talk with everyone. We will be having broiled salmon filets and asparagus for dinner tonight.

So on the way to the market the classical station on SiriusXM was playing Beethoven’s 6th symphony. I almost stayed until it was done. When we came out of the market they were playing Beethoven’s 9th. Woo-Hoo!!

We’ve got to take a trip over to Long Beach to drop of a package of adult underwear for Mary

Stay safe everyone. Wash your hands. I don’t want to hear about any of our friends getting sick.

TTFN,

Joe
