Ebola shopping....

We finally made it to Costco yesterday after a few weeks of attempting to be together at the same time for a few hours. Family time is important with the in-laws, so I never complain and am good with being alone. Between the homestead, the cabin, the dog, the gym, reading, running, etc. I never have a spare moment anyhow.

Costco installed some new tall coolers for things like cheese, lunchmeat, etc. so they have some new products that I was hoping to check out. In a large fail however, they put sample people at the end of each cooler isle, blocking half of it. My anxiety level was already on red alert (I'm a people person, honest....) so instead of ramming people and carts, we deftly avoided the area and went for the dry goods. That's always empty.

even in a pandemic....


As I was paying, a lady in line behind us asked where our bakery was at so she could stop by. I looked at her with a "what" look on my face and she pointed to my cart.

20 pounds of flour and 10 pounds of sugar and some assorted meats.

My reply was, "doesn't anyone cook, thats only enough for a month of cooking."

Lady says, "then I guess you don't have a bakery so I can't stop by."

Yup, nobody cooks, or as it was pointed out to me on the drive home: she was wanting some special morning buns....



I'm also out of evaporated milk, so no pumpkin pie last night. Sad family dinner night with just chocolate chip brownies. I'm a horrible prepper.

  1. Oh, hell. You can get by without pumpkin pie. The brownies would have done me fine, provided of course, that good strong coffee was to be had.

  2. I can make you some, if your UPS driver won't eat them all.

  3. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    1. The majority of people, any nationality, are lazy. I know many people who have "foreign" wives and it's no different. Some work hard, some want to sit around and live the American dream (whatever that might be) and do as little as possible and it's still a better life than they had before.

      Your statement about what American women are, is the exact embodiment of what you typed.

      What exactly is an American woman anyhow, or a foreign woman for that matter. How about I get a lady from Paris and move her over here.... you think she will suddenly start digging a garden, repairing the shed, splitting wood, spitting out babies every 12 months?

      Isn't spam wonderful? I can't debate anyone anymore.
