    Thanks Tracey! We have both stores in the area. I’m thinking about venturing out next week. I can always do a drive by and check.

    Also, starting to get desperate for a haircut. I haven’t had a cut since early February and I’m just too old to have my hair this long. I did trim Tom’s hair though.

    [QUOTE=ArubaAngela;360123]I was happy about the tennis courts as I’m an avid tennis player. [QUOTE=ArubaAngela;360123]

    It really makes no sense to me why tennis courts are closed - you are not close together, no physical contact other than the ball I guess. My husband and I enjoy hitting balls back and forth - it would be a stretch to call what we do playing tennis, but we do use the court in our neighborhood. Our HOA has everything locked off while the stay at home order is in effect in our county. They have their next meeting on May 20th, so I guess we will find out more then.

    Peg... there are a ton of small garden centers on the South Shore.... We have a fav nearby and have used them for years. Actually went in last Sunday for a coupla hangers for the front porch. Not crowded... and lots of space. A bit more money than a big box store... but we are supporting local folks!

    As for us..... we're taking our time with any type of restaurant or anyplace that is going to have lots of people. Shopping hasn't been an issue and we really love Target opening at 8 every day with the first hour each day being for us old folks!

    The Wisconsin Supreme Court OVERTURNED their stay-at-home order, ruling it "unlawful" and "unenforceable".

    WI Governor Tony Evers’ stay-home mandate was to last until May 26, 2020, but WI legislators challenged the order in the WI State Supreme Court saying that health officials had not followed the correct implementation process, so the court overturned the order, allowing businesses to open immediately after its decision on Wednesday night.

    I am sorry but I am sick and tired of people/groups/companies thinking they know more the the people who study infectious disease. The actions of many disgust me!!!!!

    Most beaches are open in NJ, but for fishing(no chairs) and walking, running, etc. No sitting or groups, but that is supposed to change by Memorial Day. Each community will have to enforce social distancing-not sure how that will work. The boardwalks are mostly open for walking, biking, etc and take out food. I think it will be crazy and social distancing will be an issue. Non essential stores are opening for curbside pick up starting Monday. My dentist office is still closed-I had an appointment scheduled for Monday that they cancelled, and if they had not, I would have cancelled it. Nothing else is opening yet. NJ still is getting 1000+ new cases a day. Many of the beaches started reopening on their own(decided by mayors, not the governor). Yes, I am tired of being home, and would love to get my hair done and a pedi. I'd love to return the items that I ordered and do not want to keep (Kohls won't pay to ship back). I'd love to eat in a restaurant, however; my husband has a compromised immune system and our health is first and foremost. So it will be long time before we are seated anywhere or I go into a crowded place. I want to see what happens over the next few weeks. There are a lot of idiots out there.

    Thanks Tracey. I headed out this morning and got my wheelbarrow from Home Depot. They were very organized over there. After that I swung by the local store to grab some milk and almost lost my mind on a women- I just stared and shook my head as I waited for her to exit the store. We were about to walk in at the same time when she realized she did not have a mask...I saw her hesitate then went in anyways. I waited and she knew I was less than pleased....and said sorry when she was leaving the store. My response was you should be! I told the owner he was a lot nicer than me as I would have kicked her out.

We needed a part for an emergency repair, so we went to Home Depot - they had a social distancing line outside, spaced out and were monitoring how many customers were in the store. They had signs asking for 1 person per household and inside was orderly in the check out area. It seems as though the Home Depot corporate policies are being enforced better where I live.

    The little corner store that I’ve had to go to a few times has a big sign in their door, NO MASK—NO ENTRY!

    Glad Home Depot worked out. I’m researching garden centers in the area and may try Home Depot next week. It’s awful to feel uncomfortable just going to the store!!

    You probably already know this but there is a garden center on the Southern Artery right after Stop and Shop. I've had good luck with tomato plants there - better than Lowe's. They are mobbed on the weekends but if you went during the week it probably wouldn't be too bad. It's all outside so you might feel safer. The tomatoes are usually right on an outside aisle so you wouldn't have to venture too far into the tented area except to pay. I'm so excited that it's almost time to plant the tomatoes. On a side note, I have a robin's nest right outside my kitchen (otherwise know as my temporary home office). It's nice to look up and see what mama and babies are up to. Spring is finally coming to Massachusetts - well, hopefully!!

    Yes, thanks the Artery Garden Center. I have picked up plants there in the past. They have a nice selection there and I’m just 5 minutes away I’ll need to check if they’re open as they periodically close. One week they have a ton of plants the next week it can be closed and empty. Guess they just sell out their inventory.
