THERE's your hijack!

Did I miss the toilet paper discussion?
While out and about I found one package of a name brand and one of the attributes they claimed was "long lasting."
I ask you, is that really necessary?

You can wash long lasting TP in the toilet and then iron it. Made of the finest recycled plastic.

That's probably only if you use it in "duplex" mode.

Do y'all remember back in the '70's Johnny Carson creating The Great Toilet Paper shortage?

Was looking on Amazon for toilet paper last night (really! I know, foolish but there is none to be found here) and found some that claimed to be recycled. Recycled toilet paper? I don’t care if it was in stock (it was’t) I’m not buying it.

So we have family coming for Easter (not to worry, no reports of "The Thing" in their county). But, we're down to 16 rolls of TP. Is it proper to ask them to bring some? Instead of wine? Or spiral sliced ham?

Suggest they have a colonoscopy before they leave for your house—that should clean them out for a few days.

Install a bidet and embroider custom guest towels for drying the tush area.
Do you know the difference between butt kissing and brown nosing?

When this whole mess is over I predict there will be a boom in hearing aid sales... as we all realize it will help us hear each other from six feet away.

Please Hijack This Thread...

He he he. Looks like you have had a few similar experiences like mine.....that’s a very typical explanation of a subtle difference between two concepts in the Navy!

There are quite a few more that aren’t safe public post material.

Try looking up “Falcon Codes” on Google for some examples...

“Falcon two six niner “ was one of our favorites...

Found a great thing on the Walmart GROCERIES app (grocery pickup: try it, you'll like it). You can get limited stuff from non-grocery departments too. And the diesel truck wants DEF. The 2.5 gallon size is a bit over $12, weighs 20 lbs. and is a pain in the wrists to lift and cleanly get it into the DEF tank of the truck, especially as I have to stand on a stool to see into the engine. Gallon size (8 lbs.) Is slightly under $5 and is much easier to handle. 3 gallons is almost the same price as the 2.5 gallon size. Good deal.
Also minimum order for grocery pickup is $35. Not hard to do, but if you need just a few things, add DEF or laundry detergent and making up the difference is easy.

Toilet Paper and bleach based spray - try the Dollar type stores... they DO aim at a downscale demographic, but they built a new one right at the main road leading to Virginia Highland Haven, and it beat going to Floyd for a gallon of milk and plastic drink cups. Prices were high and I wouldn't buy any packaged sandwich meat there (no name brands, lots of visible gristle and all made Spam look good) but chips, snacks, milk and some household goods were same as supermarket stuff. Here in Florida quite a bit of the packaging has Spanish labeling first.

You may notice it is 4 AM and I am posting. Well, Walmart is apparently getting swamped with new take out business..
And there appear to be no scheduled slots for one to actually pick up.
I make up my order then wait until 4 AM and find a slot 48 hours out. I grab one quickly. You can try different store locations too. Easter candy? Bunny will be running late Sunday.

If I find a chart, graph, table or supporting piece of information on the internet that supports my line of thinking does that make all differing information/opinions null and void? I think it should! I said so, that's why!

Dur... stupid human trick.
I was in a hurry and added a can of stewed tomatoes to my grocery order, it was one of the few brands still in stock.
Picked it up today. 6.3 lbs... institutional size. ( Bigger than a gallon paint can) That is going to take the 14 inch Dutch oven to make sauce and a lot of vacuum bags to store. Thank goodness my cabana has a refrigerator. Mask and gloves. Gotta feed some to neighbors or I will be eating this for months.

Changed the oil in the Snapper riding mower today. Briggs and Stratton 9hp, 28 inch cutting deck.

Takes 48 ounces of 30 weight. New blade is next. Just have to find a store open to pick one up.
