Just back from Kroger, went during "senior hour", which wasn't really being enforced, the security guard showed up as I was leaving.  They were at about 85% stockage, even some TP was present, not much left.  No quotas.  Bread was in short supply was enough was there for an hour or so.  Eggs were there.  Veggies aplenty.  Dried beans were rare.  Plenty of canned goods.  Ground beef was low.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

I am dong at least 100 push ups in three sets each day, and we walk if the weather is nice (which it is).  Our building gym is closed, I doubt anyone was using it anyway.  Our party area is closed.  The front desk has a stay back 6 feet sign on it.  Our janitor who is outstanding is really making a great effort.  I rarely see someone as diligent and hard working as he is when no one is looking.

There is a guy at Kroger servicing the self checkout lanes who is in a wheel chair missing two legs.  I told him today how his cheerfulness was much appreciated when we visit, we always speak to him.  He said "I'm a retired civil engineer, I just enjoy helping people.", which he does, 74 years old, in a wheel chair, working at Kroger.

We should remember people like that instead of the goofs.

If he wants to un-retire, we're hiring good people who are also civil engineers.

I'll be starting that Florida office by this time next year.

Strange name... :)


Looks nice on the intergooglez though.  Maybe I'll come visit.  Save some amberjack for me!

They call it Burnt Store because back in the day there was a trading post at that location. It was a natural harbor spot.

The store manager screwed some Indian traders and they returned that night and burned the store down.

We've been ordering supplies/items from Amazon instead of going to stores.  Yesterday I picked up a box that felt really light and then noticed someone took a box cutter to the tape, opened it and removed all the contents.  This was not done at our doorstep, but rather at the FedEx facility.  I was outside with my son when delivered and asked that he set them on the porch while we finished playing horse.    FedEx has been.... well... extremely unresponsive and nonchalant about the event.  The Amazon seller is resending without issues.

I'm told the stores around here are starting to catch up. I guess the hoarders are about done.

Mrs. 847 was able to get essentials today.

Looks like certain vitamins are running low (C in particular). I understand why. We always have EmergenC on hand, as well as Airborne. Good stuff.
