We had to go to three different stores today to get most, but not all, of the supplies we need for the week. No rubbing alcohol, no toilet paper. And frozen vegetables? In your dreams. Nothing left on the shelves at Stop & Shop and Whole Foods–nothing but cauliflower. Looks like hardly anybody buys it.
The supermarket employees seem to be bearing up well, despite the pressure. We need to be nice to them, they’re doing the best they can. They do show some impatience with hoarders, but who can blame them for that?
On the plus side, it’s a lovely spring day, which permitted me to go outside, where I belong, and write my Newswithviews column while smoking a cigar. I’ll need this weather when it’s time for me to write another book. I have no idea yet how to start it. But that will come.
If I could just get the blasted squirrels to leave our tulips alone!
