    I will keep my fingers crossed and try not to worry about the what if....more worried about my friends and family's health more than jobs/money. I am somewhat thankful I don't have to worry about my mom....as you know she passed but today IS her birthday- my mom will always be a fool

    I have a couple of N95 masks. I ordered them back in Feb...the same time I stocked up on just about everything I could.

It is also a much tighter fit. To me it would make sense for everyone to the N95-both the sick and the well. I believe the N95 is used more often in construction than in medicine. I know I needed to use one when I was using paint stripper.

    Ha! Excellent point, Robin!
    I have enough I hope since it's just me. But I scored two rolls of some no-name brand at Walgreen's last Saturday. Will probably feel like sandpaper so will use the "good stuff" first. I got tissues there as well. Milk and bread too. Walgreen's actually has a lot more groceries that I ever realized.

    I put in a 2nd Omaha Steaks order today. Don't have the first one (that is due on 4/8), but there was such a good deal today, I couldn't resist. Peg, did you get your order yet?

    Hi Lisa, I haven’t received my order yet. It’s scheduled for the 7th. I placed a 2nd order today figuring it would come the following week but it’s scheduled for the 9th. I was surprised at the shorter ship time.

    Hey, Peg, I just sent you a PM. Let me know if you received. Didn't think the whole world would be interested in my Omaha order woes! LOL!

    as far as "TP" goes, went to Bj's Wholesale club the other day very well stocked with that as well as paper towels. No Kleenex but that is not a priority. someone in line told me Costco was putting these items in everyone's cart as they entered the store if they wanted them, pretty good customer service.

    we are now finally under "state lockdown" effective Friday at 12:01 am
    (except for the "many privileged rule breakers" that are still playing golf and tennis here.)

    the most fun (or as my grandsons say the funnest) thing we do all day is sit in the yard, sit in the hot tub, and order unnecessary items from Amazon.
    did I really need a NE Patriots lawn gnome? yes I did damn it!
