SPARKS and Awww Monday

Just a note to many of you who visit Marg's Animals.
I have been very worried about her.  
I wrote to Terry at Brian's Home to see if he had heard from Marg.

This is what he said:

Hey Cecilia,

Marg’s internet went down.  She lives way out in the boonies and because of the virus they can’t even give an ETA on getting it fixed.

While walking thru our neighborhood last week, we saw a young mom with a stroller on the other side of the street.   She had one of the double strollers with an infant in one section and a toddler riding  in the front.
We waved at them.  The toddler hollered, I'm eating a graham crackers I hollered back,  I like graham crackers with peanut butter.  His mom hollered, he does too but they are too messy for a walk. He hollered, when I'm at home I have to eat them over a paper towel.
I hollered back, that is a great idea!!

With all the social distancing nowadays, we aren't going any where except in the car
I spotted the squirrel was having lunch from the passenger seat of the car
I have no idea what kind of incest this is but I don't think he knew about social distancing he let me get very close.  Maybe he was frozen with fear that my big feet were way to close

Celebrating small victories on Saturday

Thursday, March 26th, we went to Wegmans. We heard many folks saying they were well stocked.  THEY had every thing most things were limits per shopper.  An entire aisle of TP, 6 rolls per pack, ground beef, lots of other meats, Fruit, everything we needed. Ground beef was 2 per customer both packs were 1.08 and 1.09 lb.  I divided them I have 2- ~1-lb and 1-3/4 lb.  We will go back next week TOO plus Wegmans sends out monthly coupons including a $5.00 coupon on purchases over $25. 
I am queen of 'making do, one of my Mama's favorite phrases, I suspect from living during the depression.  However, making do w/o tp I have not yet master .
Very thankful to have it.  I am in need of nothing else, except for the virus to exit as quickly as it entered.

Dad of Angel Madi was buying fruit
when he saw me I was hugging this 6 pack and had a big grin on my face, his face lite up like he had just been given a new Train.  We felt like we had won the lottery...

The rest of the tp saga:  

As of last Thursday, March 19th it was 2 weeks since I had been able to buy any toilet paper. I placed an online order at Harris Teeter for toilet paper to be picked up yesterday, I even had to select a specific time for pick up and prepaid!!!

March 25, our designated pick up day,  we were about to walk out the door at 1:30.  Got a call from HT online Ordering, my order had been canceled they had no tp.. I politely asked, when she expected it she said we had some yesterday.  I took a breath, then asked you didn't put some aside for me?  No she said it is first come first serve.  
THEN I had a subdued Hissy Fit.  I said, I ordered and prepaid for this a week ago. I was first before any of your walk-ins yesterday.  Of course she is just the messenger.  I was royally 'hissed' off.  
I went to HT bought the last package of Bounty table a last resort.  Even I have my limits.  LOL  and evidently tp is one of them. 

Wegman's devotion to customer service has won us over.  We will be going back...
even though it is farther from home than Harris Teeter.

As of 5pm last night, Wake County (where we live) has a stay at home
order.  We can go to grocery stores, pharmacies, and out side to exercise...keeping social distancing.  No gatherings at all except with those living in our household.  This is in effect until April 17, 2020.  Currently only a hand full of counties in NC have this order but I suspect it will be state wide soon.

Final (non) Fiction, Feline and Nature Friday

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting Feline Friday

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting Nature Friday

This is a non Fiction story that happened in my 'hood yesterday.
Back Ground:  NC public schools are closed due to the C-virus.
York Elementary is the elementary school for the children in our neighborhood.
Elementary teachers in the school system came up with a very touching way to observe social distancing BUT at the same time let their students know how much they love them and miss them.
The teachers decorate their cars, meet at a designated area in the neighborhoods
The decorated cars formed a caravan to ride thru the areas where their students live...
Below is a portion of the parade thru our neighborhood.  Students and their families stood in front of their homes with signs for their teachers.  There were horns honking,
children squealing with delight and several puppies loving this new adventure.
I ran for my camera but I missed the first 2 or 3 cars.  They had streamers and,
 balloons. The devotion and love of the teachers gave me a great big Cheshire cat smile

 you can also see our red bud in full bloom and our Dogwood is almost completely in bloom

 This burgundy van was last in the parade...the word YORK is on the back window

Frisco is not clean enough to suit Mia...
