SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY! (Plus the ‘California Report’ – from my area)






CALIFORNIA REPORT:  Well, at least a report from the Paso Robles area…  I had to go out today to get groceries, pet and cleaning supplies and prescriptions.  So, I drove around to about 5 stores.

The good news is that the crazy hoarding seems to have quieted down.  I was able to get everything I needed except eggs.

I’m not saying it isn’t still crazyodd.  It is.  There were only a few packages of meat and poultry.  (Plenty of fish available…).  Toilet paper is back on the shelves and there are now notes all over the place limiting the amount of paper products and cleaning products available to one person.  So… there’s that.

The Farm Supply store was fairly full except for cat food.  Slim pickens there.

I had a load of hay delivered yesterday – and I could see the hay yard and it looked full.

The local health food store was low on supplies and the prices were almost doubled.  I have no idea why.  I purchased some bone broth but that was about all.

Our pharmacy has a drive through where you can pay ahead of time online.  I did that so it was easy.  Regular lines there.

Lowes seemed to be the slowest to restock in our area.  I went there to get some cleaning supplies and … well, they didn’t have ANY liquid hand soap, nor cleaning wipes or Lysol.  Not to mention they are totally out of all paper products (toilet paper, paper towels…)

There was no speakable traffic… but we don’t have bad traffic here anyway.  That said, it was less.

The best part of the day was the local coffee shop guy.  He was open, which I was surprised (and delighted) to see.  He is an old veteran who bakes bread and goodies, plus has his own coffee label.    I purchased fresh coffee and some fresh baked goods – mainly to support him.  I really like him and he makes GREAT breakfast burritos.

So, that is the California Report (from Paso Robles areas)

Makes total sense…

Oh it would be so much fun to watch these guys run around the yard!!

Ive posted this previously, but I love it so here it is again. These are the Varian kids from V6 Ranch here in Parkfield. Kathryn, the one on the horse, is 20 now. Lauren, the one in the water, is a few years older and spends half of her time in Ireland promoting musical events. When you grow up around horses… well, nothing scares you.

I’m thinking this is in the UK, but I am not sure. Anyone know?

Pretty baby.

More of the Varian kids. When you grow up around horses…

Gorgeous wild babies.

It is foaling season for the wild ones…

One white, one black and one whitenblack. So Cal Mini Sanctuary.

These wild ones look like Thoroughbreds!
