I live in a small town in southern Wisconsin (population around 1600). I love animals, especially cats and dogs. I like gardening (both vegetables and flowers) and I like to read. I work in the garden center at a Walmart in Madison, WI. In the off season, I work in back-to-school, Halloween, Christmas, etc. AKA - "Seasonal". But garden season is by far my favorite.

    I’ll say this – I don’t like the people wearing things that look similar to gas masks or anything that hides all but their eyes. It makes me very uncomfortable to think one of them could be a crazy maniac who is going to start shooting everyone. By being masked, they are hard to identify. And now, wearing masks is so normal that hiding behind one doesn’t draw the suspicion it would have drawn just a month or so ago. I actually fear a gunman with a mask far more than I fear getting the virus.

    I decorated the front of my house for Easter. My home town and the neighboring town are having a decorating contest because they can’t have the Easter egg hunt in the park as the usually do. And because people are looking for fun things to do. So I made my house the Easter egg capitol of the state (or at least the village). Here’s my house:

    Here you see the entire front of my house. The brick building to the right is the telephone company. It’s in that corner of the building, under that overhang part where there’s a pair of mourning doves nesting. This also shows what I have for a “front yard” – nothing – I’m just inches from the sidewalk. Maybe you can see I have daffodils blooming in front of the house.

    Here’s a closer up view of my decorations.

    And they’re not wanting to put anyone else in prison, so thieves aren’t afraid to commit new crimes.

    You’ve got that right! More and more, people are coming into Walmart with big family groups. What part of the order “leave the kids at home” do these people not understand?

    We haven’t started doing this yet – I saw where the order just came down yesterday and they said it could take up to 3 weeks to get the thermometers in all of the stores. I don’t know how they intend to have staff to take everyone’s temperatures when we’re all coming in at different hours of the day. They said anyone will a temperature of 100 °F or more would be sent home and would “be paid for reporting to work”. Those are the words they used – they didn’t say we’d be paid for our entire scheduled hours – just that we’d be paid for reporting to work. Sounds like there could be a loophole here. But at least they can’t penalize us for an unexcused absence. It will be interesting when we get more details on this – maybe at tonight’s meeting.

    It sounds like she had a great time, even if you didn’t. I’m glad she’s okay.
