    Hy Vee was pretty busy, all the checkout stands were open but one with a line at least 2 carts deep at each one.

    Yea, but this is more than the typical Hy Vee Friday activity

    Tried to get a wink emoji in there, but WiFi in northern Missouri is almost non-existent and couldn’t keep up with my fingers.

    Just had to walk someone through the vastly over complicated way to log onto a client system. I tell them to bookmark a webpage and you would think I asked to memorize War & Peace.

    Dealt with 3M a lot. They told many things I never knew. Like Walmart does NOT own the product on the shelves. The company does. Walmart leases the good space to companies and then sells their product for X price and then “buys” that piece from the company for the agreed upon price. You don’t want to pay for the good space of the end cap, you can get the 4th shelf up in the middle pretty cheap.

    One way to look at it--practically any time you plan to fly you're risking not getting that money back.

    It's been crazy the past three days. I was walking in at 5:06a, and a guy was walking out with a huge cartload already. Nearly wiped us out of Lysol/Clorox wipes that had just come in on the truck overnight. All the wipes were gone by 7:30a, and all TP gone by 12:30p. We've been out of hand sanitizer since last Wednesday.

    @BCClone glad you could recuperate some of your cost. Any type of travel company is going to absolutely eat it these next 2-3 weeks.

    Parents just landed 30 minutes ago from having been in AZ for spring training. I think one game got rained out, the other cancelled. Just glad they're back in their home state now. Hope they have TP.

    Dang convenience store isn't allowing refills right now, guess I'll have to go by some two liters and gallons of water.

    Spring break was going to be a whirlwind trip to New York. Then they started cancelling everything. So we backed out. Today we decided we would drive down to Nashville and just see what’s there. Packed our clothes and I had fueled up the suburban. Wife talks to a co-worker who is on the way there already. They are between St Louis and Nashville and called ahead and was informed that everything but the bars are closed so they turned around. Kinda blew that up. So spring break ended up being a trip to the OP in clear lake for supper. Kinda underwhelming this year.

    We had a hotel booked for a four night stay in College Station. Non-refundable. I sent a request for a partial refund, explained why we couldn't come (Texas sis says they are limiting visiting in OR out of the facility), and telling them that we would be staying with them when we reschedule our trip. Hoping for the best (even a "store credit" would be nice). Should hear within 48 hours according to the website.

    FSN is showing fishing shows.

    Fishing is one of my biggest passions...these people on these shows are about as opposite as possible from how I go about it from all the types of gear, expensive equipment/boats/anchors. But I still watch them.

    Did you watch any of the late night shows last night? Fallon & Colbert did their shows with no audience (except a few staffers). Seth Meyer just gave up & ran a rerun.

    Should I be concerned that Amazon knows I talk to myself in a Mr. Bill voice when I've had a bit-o-wine to drink? I mean Alexa is listening.

    Guilty Friday night drinking pleasure, watching Gold Rush. Now in Auzzyland and dat gal with dat accent.

    House smells like curry. Not a bad thing.

    Sliced my figure with kitchen knife. Did a Mr. Bill "Oh, no!".

    In the new apocalyptic world should I be sleeping with a gun?

    Hershey chocolate kisses are the devil. As are Oreo thin bites.

    Also Friday the 13th marathon on SyFy.

    They're bad plots but sometimes the bad filming/camera work actually led to some pretty spooky stuff.
