One thing I did notice in the produce section was that all of the bananas were separated into individual units. No bunches. :dance:

I suppose the concern was that folks would pick bananas off of a bunch and place them back on the display area? First time I've ever seen that. (Probably going to be saying that about a number of things in the coming months, assuming I am around to make the observation of course.:eek: )
I've seen some places that are now switching to per-each pricing on fruits and vegetables, rather than per-pound. Not quite sure what this accomplishes, other than they don't need to put everyone's food on the same scale to weigh it (but presumably they were sanitizing the scale anyway).

Not separated individually, but I noticed one of the stores here is now selling bananas packaged in plastic bags only, no more free-range bunches.

As someone who usually shops solo, I welcome bananas not in bunches. :D

What I REALLY need soon is a fucking hair cut (I don’t think any of those places are open now).
Same here. I always let my hair get out of control before finally getting a haircut. The last haircut I had was in September or October so it was coming to that time for me but then this happened so it might take another couple months until I can see a barber. I'm going to look like a 20 year old from 1975 by that point.

Yeah, my last haircut was in July or so and I can’t imagine when I’ll have time to get another one. At least my wife likes my hair :)

The garden nursery we patronize is closed to customers but they are doing pick-up and delivery ($20 for any size order). I'm going to order some blooming plants for the side yard planter (about 125 sq ft) and have them delivered. Still trying to decide which plants to get.... definitely some roses, maybe a couple of agapanthus, and perhaps society garlic.

Re: haircut

Remington clippers with a 1/2 inch attachment and about 5 minutes at the bathroom sink and I'm good to go. Not the most stylish solution but it gets the job done without the expense or time spent at a salon or barbershop.

Hey Adam, glad to hear you’re doing better. So it sounds like you really did have the virus, but a mild case.

I predict this is going to cause a return of the pony tail for men. I already have the flip over each ear I get when I’m need of a trim!

Hahaha...

There were several years back around the 2008 financial crisis when I kinda gave up looking for a convenient enough shop to cut my hair the way I'd want and just let it grow out. Went w/ a ponytail most of that time and just had my wife chop off some whenever it got too long, except maybe a couple times when I'd try again at a different shop. IIRC, it usually took a year or so to grow it that long after a regular cut.

Of course, I just tried a different shop back in mid-Feb (because the lady I liked apparently retired) and got a somewhat shorter-than-usual (for me) cut. My hair is actually now around the length I normally want, so you better hope this thing doesn't last long enough (like another year-plus) for me to grow another ponytail, LOL.:laugh:

I just use an old electric hair shaver to cut all my hair off, once every few months.

Though I don't bother shaving my head bald. Too much work to maintain it regularly with a razor blade.

Well we got a large earthquake to add to our issues here in Idaho. It was almost 100 miles away from me, up near Stanley in the Sawtooth Mountains area. A magnitude 6.5 gets diluted by the time it gets down here.

It's tough being in Stanley right now. Hwy 21 from Boise is closed due to rock slides and an avalanche. The only other road goes through coronavirus hot-spot Sun Valley/Ketchum.
