I remember when it used to take forever to get to Friday which was when the good part started. Now every day is like waiting in the Dentist’s office. I wish stores had a Karen-Free Day so I could enjoy shopping again.

In all my 67 yrs Ive never seen so many karen’s they must have built a plant near us and are just churning then out by the dozens. What ever happened to have a good day?

We inherited a small toy poodle from my father in law after he died and she does the same thing when it comes to supper time and does it in circles.

Love your analogies….and I feel your pain. I just do NOT shop anymore, either. Amazon and USPS are my new gods. Whatever I can not get from them, I can buy from a local semi-outdoor farm store within a mile of my home—eggs, milk, cheeses, bread, butter….even booze….AND, I can buy a baggy of food and feed the animals at their “petting zoo.” I’m living good.

Calgirl . . . I know what you mean about “Amazon and USPS” being your new best friends. Since I am here in Portland (and if you have kept up on the rioting, and the fact that our “murder rate has gone up 83%) I no longer have the heart to go out and shop and malls or stores. You just do not have any assurance that you will return home in one piece.

I have always so much enjoyed your submissions to this site and the old FOTM. I used to post under the name “Auntie Lulu” but decided to change my online name when I came over to Body and Soul.

I do worry about you, since California seems to be also be going down the drain–just like Oregon.

Auntie LuLu! I wondered where you’d gone! Blessings! We’ve followed the Portland debacle &, as I’ve been there several times w/a child in a nationally competitive sport, I just could NOT imagine it falling into the state it became this past summer. It was such a welcoming, lovely city (Having traveled all over w/this sport, IMO, Anchorage & Portland were 2 of the best cities to welcome our athletes/parents). If you wanted to leave, if you had a home to sell, who would buy it & choose to move there in the midst of it all? How are any businesses even open anymore? We’re not so bad here (yet) where I live. It’s long-been an affordable area for families & that’s who came, & who is still coming, so we are conservative, less politically “punishing” toward ea other (at least in public). We do, however, suffer fr empty shelves, $5-$6 per gallon gas, shortages of everything, general decay of public services (like not enough garbage service anymore….so collection is hit or miss due to few employees ). I think this is a little due to our out-of-the way locale. My school is back in person, but we have NO SUBS & so when we get COVID or anything else, kids are just “baby-sat” by campus security or teachers on their “preps” who have to keep preparing for their own classes …..So, while I’ve been decently-OK thru’ all this, we’re still affected, as most are, sadly. All that said—we want out of CA ASAP…w/taxes (we paid over 40% of our earnings to state, federal, local…..why am I even working?) and the specter of Newsom calling for universal health care for everyone, citizen or not….which could raise ea. household state tax by $12,000 MORE per year. Gonna “run away” to some last refuge of values that seem a little more of a Democratic Republic instead of Socialist/Marxist state 🙁 If anyone is paying attention….ie..the U-Haul rentals….people like me are ditching CA, NY, NJ, ILL, MD, etc…for more tax-sane states—which are, all Red!)
