    Barely.
    Has anyone been in an actual store for anything other than groceries?

    I've been to Wal-Mart 3 times now. It's like going to Disneyland! ;)

    Close out stores like Ross & Big Lots have got lines around the block. Can you imagine how much new stock they've amassed since they've been closed?

    Well, from the latest all hands meeting, looks like we still don't have a return to the office date and when we do, it'll be in 3 phases... and I can be in the last group (Thx to being vulnerable!) Who knew my bad luck last year would turn into good luck in the middle of all this mess. Looks like I might get to work from home all summer. Ok w me!

    It will be awhile before I brave department stores. I am dying to go to a fabric store and Lowe’s.. I want to go to a craft store for some art supplies too.
    I did make another trip to pick up a bushel of butter beans at the veg stand they didn’t have anything out you have to ask for the veggies. Times they are a changing. I hope this virus is a one and done thing virus who needs them.

    Jeez the virus is massacring me. I didn't just lose my donkey in the markets. I'm supporting two relatives who aren't allowed to work.

    I have been to Lowe's and Home Depot. Also the local hardware store. Ain't been to the Thrift stores yet. I miss the Thrift store shopping. It's like a treasure hunt.

    Sorry to hear this. It's been a rough go for many people, I hope it eases up for you as the numbers come down and things start to move.

    Gday folks. I've been busy for a day off. Suited up hit the grocery store. Gave up on ordering online when Kroger fleeced me for $64 worth of stuff I didn't get home with... and another store substituted sugar-free syrup for Aunt Jemima.

    Anyway, I hit it just right and there was hardly anybody shopping. By the time I left, it was crowded... but they had plenty of stuff. Except masks. Go figger.

    We were hit by a flying object just recently. Have no idea what it was, the sound of it hitting was like a shotgun and it left our windshield with a round circle about three inches in diameter. Thank goodness for safety glass.

    I remember complaining about crowded stores or anything that could be crowded as a nuisance and now I remember those times as the good old days. Who would have thought?
