Re: Costco vs the hoarders

Hit up my local yesterday. Food menu was down to whole pizzas, hot dogs, and sodas only. Since all the food court seating had been removed, no fat or old people hogging up the place so no waiting in line. I grabbed a hot dog and Mt. Dew to go.

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

I made a 7:15 pm Costco run last night. The place was relatively empty...Until I got to to far side of the store wall where shoppers were lined up about 3/4 the depth of the store. I thought... Hmmmm "What's up here"? As I suspected, it was either gonna be tp or paper towels so I got in line. It didn't move to much for about 15 minutes but then began to move right along. I was kind of hoping for paper towels but they tossed a 30 roll bag of tp in the cart so I took it and headed for the front where about 12 people were checking out. I was 2nd in the checkout line, about 6' behind the person in front of me. It pays to sleep late. Lol

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

I got up early this am to make a senior hour run to Costco. I am NOT an early riser but thought I need some paper towels and some food supplies. So I get there at 7:10 am and see about 30 people waiting in line already. I think OK, not too bad so I park and grab my social distance required cart and head for the line. I get near the line and a worker say's that line is for the regular hour people and the one over there is for seniors. I walk over around the corner and saw a numerous amount of people in a line. I start heading toward the end of the line only to discover the line goes around the corner and off into the distance and beyond. That damned line was about a mile long. At that point I decided I was heading home because by the time the line got to the front everything would be gone. So I left. This stuff is crazy as hell and has no end in sight for the short future. I did ask one man near the front when he got in line and he said about 5:50 am. I'll starve to death before I do that crap.

Try Safeway. My dad placed his order online, the pickup is scheduled a couple of days later, they email you that morning to confirm itís ready, you call when you get there and they bring it to your car and put it in your trunk. They charge $4.95, which is worth it in my dads opinion.

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

Dan: I did the exact same thing last week at Costco. I think you were right to think that by the time you got in all the stuff on your list would be sold out. The line was beyond belief.

Try office supply places or restaurant supply outlets. A friend bought two cases of paper towels at Office Depot last week.

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

The first of my Corona baby birds just hatched!! One hatched and hopefully five to go. This is my first go at this in many years back to raising quail once in high school in the 70s.

There's a whole lotta' "cheeping" noises going on from those still unhatched eggs. Last night the peeping noises started and my wife and I thought we were going crazy. How could they make that loud of a noise through the shell? But sure enough, here we go.


That bird started pecking on the inside of the shell about five hours ago but once through at one small place, that bird was outta' there in less than ten minutes.


My daughter-in-law is posting Facebook video of that roughly ten minute process for her quarantined students to watch this coming week. Instant biology and animal husbandry lesson.

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

This first one has been moved over to the other bowl and is beginning to stand and eat a little. It is also nearly dried off. Another bird is starting to crack its way out and we shall see how the afternoon proceeds but I'm very hopeful.

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

Some market breed birds can be ready for sale in as little as 38 days from birth. Sixty days is more probably the case but these are layers.

That China virus must be affecting the brain for some of you. Otherwise, how could you have gotten so far off topic? Perhaps Dean is infected too because he's not here smacking you down for being off topic. ;

Re: Costco vs the hoarders

Those farm raised quail never coveyed like wild quail and there was never much sport in shooting them. The birds were usually too fat to fly but they did taste pretty good.

However, the farm raised quail were good for teaching a German Short Hair and an English Pointer how to point.
