Is Alcohol Essential?

I'm guessing your world looks pretty much like mine...

Social distancing
Empty shelves
Empty freezers

No bread
Hamburger meat
Chicken breast
Hand sanitizer

Oh yeah

Everyone is going a little cra-cra!

Is anyone else having a hard time not touching her face?
I may even pick my nose.

How hard is it to pump gas without touching anything?

About the third day into social distancing,
and having to work because I am "essential,"
I went to buy hand sanitizer.
Of course, there was none.

I have the recipe.
Aloe vera gel...check
Essential oil...check


After work, I stopped at 3 places.
By this time, I'm feeling exasperated.
In the pharmacy section...
because that's where it should be, right?
But what do I know?...

"Sir, do you have any alcohol?"

I was directed to Aisle 12,
"Right behind you there!"

Here I go.  Yelp. 
Didn't give it a second thought.
Be-bopping right along.
Stopping mid-way, yelp!

Alcohol, the kind you drink!?
I wasn't talking about...

I stopped right there and started laughing.
Was this a joke?
I don't think so. 
I must have looked like I really needed something more!

I don't drink.  Don't like the stuff.
But hey, some right about now, may consider
alcohol as "essential."

Instead of wine, I prefer a sweeter taste, but
Just couldn't resist telling the story.


  1. Oh my goodness. You poor thing....but I couldnt help but giggle.
    It's dicey on what you can find these days. Stay sane!!

  2. P.S. HEY...what's different around here? The blog has a whole new look!!!

  3. Ha! Your world sounds just like mine. I do appreciate the laugh!

  4. Now that's funny! We are all just doing what we have to! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. That made me chuckle! Here in PA we only starting selling wine in grocery and convenience stores. I do enjoy wine occasionally, haven't had any since Christmas, But I just might enjoy a small bit one of these days! ☺
    Stay well! No one working away from home here, full house.
    Stay well, dear friend!

  6. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from autism, I decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.My son suffered autism in 2017 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always had difficulty with communication, and he always complained of poor eye contact. We tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and I saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many others with similar body problems, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to autism. I never imagined autism has a natural cure not until I contacted him, and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one month time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. Autism has a cure and it is a herbal Mix medicine from Dr. James contact the doctor for more info on how to get your cure of diseases like ALZHEIMER'S DISEASES, DIABETES, BIPOLAR DISORDER, CANCER, HIV/AIDS, HERPES Hepatitis A, B, C.

Spring into Spring

Anyone else ready to Spring Forward?  Oh my goodness! Just enough nip in the air to feel like an early Spring day. The trees around Georgia are beginning to bud. I've missed my babies so much the past couple of weeks but this afternoon  I feel a little lighter.  It will be Easter weekend before I get to Nashville but I found this sweet little idea to make with the kids. We can go on a scavenger hunt and each Grand can create their own unique design.  I've not done much in my booth for Spring. I had a yard sale and this is how the carport still looks. I may have made $40. Ugh. It was cloudy day so, oh well. I'll price it all and put it in the booth this weekend.  The littles are doing ok. Our youngest GRAND girl, Claire has to wear a patch for a weak eye.  I think she's gonna be fine. She certainly daddy's girl.  She was excited about going to his office.  Our oldest GRAND girl, Cora, made the All-star team in basketball. She's a natural.  She loves to FaceTime! 

Growing, Going, Gone

Do you ever consider how fast your children grew up? At the time, it seemed that the sleepless nights would last forever and the terrible twos would stay terrible forever, the pre- teens awkwardness and the teenage defiance would never end. And then they turn 16, you give them the keys and they speed off into the world...gone.   I expected that, somewhat, and I even learned to release my children as they grew. What I didn't expect was for the grandkids to go so fast.  2014 our miracle baby arrives. Our Christmas gift from above.  We enjoy the other two for our last Christmas in GA before moving to Tennessee.  2015 we enjoy our first Christmas after moving to Nashville in May.  2016 and we enjoy our first Christmas in our new house.  2017 the last Christmas the three will be the littles.  2018 new babies. 2019 the year before Covid and the last Christmas in our new home.  2020 the Covid Christmas gathering almost didn't happen. The kids considered not getting together. We were g
