    I realized I was down to a half roll of TP :eek:
    So I took a trip to my local Safeway and sure enough the entire isle was empty. So I grabbed a couple rolls of bounty quicker picker upper :D and figured I’d rough it out Literally lol . So as I did my walk of defeat on the next isle over down the pet section to get my cat some dinner I look at the top shelf about halfway down and a package of TP must have fell over from the TP section in the frenzy scramble lol into the pet isle.
    He shoots he scoressss !!!! :D
    I proudly displayed my victory on the top of my shopping cart as I did my walk back to checkout and watched folks looking at my cart wondering were I got it from lol in envy .
    Thought there might be a hijack attempt of my shopping cart. There was some hungry TP eyes lol :eek: I was ready to defend my fresh kill :D

    Because the title of this thread says otherwise ;)
    I think it’s more of the impact it has or hasn’t. Touched lightly and or with a touch of realitY.
    To get more to the point it’s not in Whine and CheesE Because Spark didn’t put it there :D

    Yep. To think that we were worried about getting wiped out when we should have been worrying about getting wiped off.

    It's important to maintain a little levity when things get rough.

    this covid19 situation has taken
    a life of its own. the results
    of the infection so far appears grave
    enough to put fear in even the most
    skeptical of us.
    suddenly the fearful are hand wash freaks.
    and many others carry hand sanitizers
    and wear mask.
    don't leave things to chance.
    as knifenuts, now is not a good time
    to lend out your knife.
    well. not unless you have a boiling
    pot of water at hand to sterilize 'em :)
    sadly, the reality is that some amongst us
    may fall victim to the spread.
    it has been said that those with certain medical precondiions are at higher risk
    of succumbing to it fatally.
    if you haven't written a will in regards to
    your knife collection, consider doing so now.
    if you haven't anyone in mind to will it to.
    have it donated to a good cause like right here to the bladeforums :)
    who knows, perhaps even the bladeforums could consider running a post covid contest give away in your memory or something :)
    stay safe everyone! we shall overcome.

    Would you rather laugh or cry while taking the necessary precautions?

    Gotta laugh or you'll go crazy.

    Until I see a post here where Spain is in quarantine. Or when I find out today that my daughter, an ICU nurse in Phoenix, had her unit designated a Covid-19 Evaluation center and she's getting her first patient today.

    Makes my first-world problems seem a little less important.

    And here it is, almost tick season, too. So now we can have Corona with Lyme!

    There's no cure, and the best treatment is to manage the symptoms. I recommend Corona, with lime....
