Had to get an early morning blood test. The lab is inside a Walmart about 15 miles away. So when I finished, I decided to see what I could find. Being so early in the morning, not too many folks were in the store; we could all keep our distance.
I found most of what I wanted. A lot of items were one to a customer, which was fine with me. Found my usual exfoliating facial cloths in a two-pack. As I headed to the grocery side, a guy saw them and excitedly wanted to know where they were. I told him and he rushed away happily. Got the very last bag of all-purpose flour -- all that was left on those shelves were a few self-rising flour bags and some nut flours. No butter, oddly enough.
Finished there and wheeled out to the pickup in a pouring rain. Saw a wallet on the asphalt, so I loaded the truck and took the wallet to Customer Service. Hope the owner finds it all intact.
WLToo sent a text just as I pulled into the village 3.2 miles from us, saying we needed Bisquick. OK, stopped in the grocery there and they had it!!! They also had eggs, milks of various kinds, but still no distilled water. I think Mom's CPAP can use regular water in a pinch. Another place where butter was limited. Hmmm, guess that's the next panic buy...
While there, a guy was wandering around, marveling at how quiet and well-stocked this little store in the country was. He'd not been there before and needed eggs, so I pointed him to the egg display and made him very happy.
Sun's out now and it's steamy outside. I think I got home safely, without being contaminated.
