|My neighborhood with Mt Shasta in the distance.|
I took a long walk today around my neighborhood. It was so nice to get out. We didn\’t see many people – I saw a couple of young moms out with their babies and toddlers – we kept our distance as to not freak the mommy out. The neighborhood park was empty.
Yesterday we were up early grocery shopping. Prices seem to have gone up. I spent $139 for not that much. Gas is the lowest I have seen in a year or so – we\’re at $2.50 a gal. We filled up 2 weeks ago at $2.99 a gal and still have half a tank. Foodie said, that Sysco Foods, which distributes food to their facility, could not fill the milk and egg order this week. Then I went to the store and found that milk and eggs were low and they were limiting purchases. I didn\’t need any TP, and that was good because there were only 4 packages left. Absolutely no Tylenol on the shelves. Since that social media post went viral about ibuprofen not good to take for the virus, everybody did a mad dash to HOARD Tylenol. I have just a little left so I am now, restricting myself. I used to take an anti-inflammatory for my arthritis and it bothered my stomach. So all I take now is Tylenol. It doesn\’t work as well, but it\’s better than nothing. It\’s crazy how people hoard. They obviously have major \”issues.\” I can see if they were brought up in the depression or WW2 – or maybe they had parents that were hoarders. I don\’t get it. I always feel guilty if I take too much of anything.
We watched another John Wayne movie – She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. My husband enjoyed it. It was okay. It was made in 1949.
Both my husband and I are old Trekkies. We\’ve been binge-watching the original Star Trek series on Netflix. The series is still good, but so primitive. Funny how when they crash, they move their bodies not always in unison. Spock, of course, was ALWAYS my favorite.
