    They closed early tonight along with Walmart. Hopefully it's not a recurring thing. Menards is literally the only store I go to.

    Some stores are closing because of the protesters (well because of the rioters more like it) and he destruction that they have caused.

    I'm sure it was only out of huge abundance of caution. Everything that was happening around here was super small and non violent.

    I was sitting here watching TV and nothing was happening on my dead end street so they never got here. Thinking this is likely related to highway closures and the 8:00 curfew tonight.

    What constitutes an attempt? Saying, hey we should deliver this but I don't think so? Although I will say that I wouldn't expect to get things very timely for a few days until things settle down.

    Yeah, I totally get them not getting here but it was odd since it's a generic message with a specific time stamp. No biggie, just a few pounds of Death To Slugs cause I love hostas and hate slugs.

    Thanks to the MN twin cities updates. I now know the sign language for dumpster fire.

    Was not planning on wearing the company branded polo today. But, having to leave at 4:30 to be at work by 5...it's going to be that and have my badge at the ready just in case. Well, and make sure I obey all traffic laws.

    I'm irritated that I have to get up at 5:30 to 5:45 because of kids' stuff. I'm not a morning person. Up at 6:45 and rolling around 7:15-7:30 is my style.

    Seeing the news footage of what's happening in Minneapolis reminded me of the rioting and looting in Watts and Detroit back in the 60s. (Yeah, I'm old. 64 next month.)

    We bought 2 hibiscus plants a few weeks ago, and they have started to bloom. (They're in pots, they don't last in the ground over the winter.) Beautiful brilliant peach colored blossoms, about 6-7" across. The vixen counted 28 buds on one plant!

    Plus her geraniums (some special kind, can't remember the describing word) are now blooming too....awesome deep purple blossoms.

    I love spring.

    I eat stuff like that all the time. Wifeypoo thinks I'm nuts. I tell her I'm just preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

    Has anyone noticed that HyVee quit selling Hormel Little Sizzlers? I guess they had to close some plants and the Little Sizzler plant got the axe. Those things were the best.

    I had a bunch of flat iron steaks in the freezer. I have been thawing one of those every couple of weeks. Gonna be steak again tonight.
    I need to stop putting stuff in the basement freezer and get it cleaned out. It needs to be defrosted and there is way too much in it now.

    My daughter is a nurse at hennepin county hospital and her fiance is a fireman for Minneapolis. Throw a prayer or two their way if you have time.

    Have you ever watched the movie Snatch? You need subtitles to figure out what Brad Pitt says about 90% of the time.

    Picotee? They come in different colors, but they are HUGE blossoms. I have a pot of gold w/cardinal edges, and two pots of red/white (couldn't find the cyclone colors locally, so bought what was available then found the other online).

    Edit - nevermind. Picotee are begonias, not geraniums. I'm an idiot.
