Pandemic humor.


Because I’m still laughing. (Mostly at myself, but hey… you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.)

Now that’s what I call following the CDC guidelines.



Wow. Now I’m really glad we got another cat.



Agreed. I listen to my husband’s all the time and trust me, they would be greatly improved with a keg or two.



I vaguely remember wandering aimlessly through brick and mortar stores sometime in the distant past….



Technically this last one isn’t pandemic humor… but we’ve all spent so much time on social media lately it seemed appropriate.


Never let your husband bag the groceries.


We had to run to the grocery store for a prescription last night and I figured while we were there I’d pick up a few things.

They were still out of paper products, water and flour….




But all I wanted was fresh fruit and veggies anyway.

When we got to the check out line…. with the reusable bags no Mainer is ever without… we were told a new policy of self bagging had been implemented, so the husband happily jumped right in.

Yes, he put the bananas on top of the bread… and the apples on top of the lettuce but it wasn’t until we got home that the real fun began.

Did I buy oil?

No, but a large bottle came home with us.

Did I buy pistachios?

No, but they came home with us as well.

And while it was bad enough the husband rounded up and bagged someone else’s groceries? He also packed this in our bag….



Hand sanitizer.

But not another shopper’s sanitizer.




He lifted one of the store use bottles they keep at each register.

Do not let your husband bag groceries.



It’s official….


The end really is near.


L.L. Bean closing all U.S. stores amid coronavirus concerns

This is the first time in history that the Flagship stores in Freeport will close for more than 24 hours

L.L. Bean is closing all U.S. retail locations beginning midnight Monday through March 29 out of precaution for the spread of coronavirus, COVID-19, L.L. Bean President and CEO Steve Smith said in a press release Monday. 


Yes… the store that’s open 24/7 seven days a week, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas…. is closing.





For those of you who don’t live in Maine? ( I’m sorry, you really should.)

Or are unfamiliar with L.L. Beans? (Where have you been, under a rock?)



It’s kind of their thing.

They don’t even have locks on their doors!

Of course this is huge news up here as they employ like half the state…. so I can only surmise one thing.

We’re doomed.

The end is truly near….

It’s been nice knowing you.
