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!!

  7. 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.

Starting Over

Does anybody like starting over? Sometimes it's good to get a fresh start,  turnover a new leaf,  start fresh,  begin again,  get a new lease on life. Those are good start-overs,  the kinds we choose for ourselves.  I've started over because I chose to. I've started over because I had to.  I've started over when it was not my choice to do so. Since I lost my old blog and had to start over,  I've not enjoyed blogging.  I have managed to find and keep a few of you,  but I'm having trouble reconnecting with many.  This is the kind of start-over that I don't like. It's gonna take time to rebuild what has been lost. Some relationships are like that. Others require little effort and stand the test of time. After my parent's death, I was sad. I was angry. I was hurt. I was in a really bad place. And I hurt others. I'm not proud of that. I created distance from the people I needed the most. And I

What Did Your Weekend Look Like?

A day of work and a day of rest is what the weekend looked like for us. I started my Saturday with the usual- a cup of coffee. We had already decided to do a little Spring Cleaning. I started cleaning out my closet and made it  through each room like the Tasmanian Devil leaving behind a whirlwind of mess! It's crazy the things we see when we're in lock down. No, we're really not in lock down. We're just being smart. I decided I didn't like my picture frames  not to be the same color.  I took them all down... ...revealing all the nail holes ...from every time I didn't get it right. Can I tell you I counted 20? Oh, please! So, I rearranged them with different frames. and took them down again, and painted the wall. The holes, of course, are still there but the scratches are not.  So, we now have a blank wall. and a stack of frames. David put up the wall art above  the glass door,
