BON CHEW & COWCOW

last week  we drove to da front  town aka Loudeac to buy some things we really needed….

….and no, no mind movies, the junk store is CLOSED! (end of the world for the mama)

… we saw maybe 2 or 3 peeps walking their pups, all other inmates were invisible or on the run…

…and even da vet is closed now…

…we furst went to Lidl, da discounter from germany for da basic stuff  and everything went smooth. 50 noses max, one person for one shopping cart, kids no longer allowed and stripes on da floor for keeping da distance

…then we drove over to leclerc, to find the things apart from da basics…

… they have arrows now on the floor for separating da entrance….

… and it was very quiet there, normally this is the most crowded place on earth apart from Marcus square in Rome…

… the checkout is now like a space mission, you have to throw your stuff on da belt from a distance… and that’s only a mission for NBA pro’s, then you have to run around the  pay booth whats taped off , like Paavo Nurmii to pay your items and to grab everything what the belt spits in da packing area, not easy but doable and if it helps, may it be….

The supermarkets are now better guarded than Fort Knox, they hired giant doormen who promise trouble to those who look for it…

Our shopping trip was more so-so, you have to change your plans  87 times to get all things together you need. But we are still proud of the inmates of brittany, who always have time for a small chat, even when we scream our messages and news over da streets like da fish mongers…

Butt we  hold the fort and we stand our ground…. sure the offsprings of La Tigresse know how to sail  through stormy waves…

HAVE A TROUBLEFREE TUESDAY ALL

  1. Oi!
    The stores are getting a wee bit like yours now too…cannot even get seeds to put in a garden…let alone other garden things. Petcretary wants to say S**t and the F bomb about all of this horrible stuff…but well, we still can go to the store to get our provisions and medicines. Hope we do not need medicines though!

    Glad you are managing! Lets pray it helps and that it soon will just be a vague bad memory…for the whole world.

    Shopping is the same here and only a certain amount of people allowed in at once. Queue outside 2 metres apart then when one comes out, one goes in. I have someone who goes to Aldi for me as we are on 12 week shelter for safety and haven’t left home for 4 weeks apart from a medical appointment.
    It is a strange life now, but things will get better in time.

    This makes me even more grateful for being able to order online – though have to wait two days for delivery… careful planning means we only have to have one lunch without bread. Sigh… hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Bella, Roxy and says:

    The world has certainly changed! This morning SHE went in a shop and after going up and down aisles, noticed arrows indicating which aisles were One Way!

  5. Shopping certainly has changed. Long lists and heaven help if you forget something 😉

  6. Same here guys…..shopping is like planning a war mission….you have to wear your “gear” and take your “equipment” and plan your route through the aisles searching for the prizes on your list…..then out and to the next store for the stuff you couldn’t get at the first store. We will really be happy when things are back to whatever the heck “normal” is! You boys keep on alert – I’m glad your Mom and Dad are getting the things they need to keep the Weim-house stocked up! Stay safe…………

    Love, Teddy and Mom too

  7. We are all navigating stormy waves just now, shopping-wise. Gail has taken to walking with backpack the 1km to the Marks and Spencer’s Food Hall down by the harbour. On the way to the shop this morning she met a neighbour who was enthusing about how empty it was, and Gail thought, that’s odd, you must have been there during hour set aside for old and vulnerable folk and you’re neither. Gail found the shop well stocked and almost empty, and asked at the checkout (for behind a screen) whether it was still old folk only from 8-9 am. The young cashier said they’re bring pragmatic and if only 4 customers turn up you can’t turn 2 of them away because they’re not old enough!
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie.

  8. Something normal in this world, your Travel Trouble Tuesday. Shopping is strange nowadays, we were planning yesterday where is the best place, and when, to buy food. You know Paavo Nurmi, The great sportsman from Finland.
    Stay safe!

  9. My GBGV Life says:

    My mom is a Lidl lover. They are in the US now too, but not in our area. Grocery shopping is a major project these days because those hoarders still manage to clear the important stuff even when one is the limit. Frustrating.

  10. Phenny and Nellie this is a most PURRFECT description of how we have it at the … “the checkout is now like a space mission, you have to throw your stuff on da belt from a distance…” once unloaded we are told to push our cart to them. Luckily I have a dynamic arm and am all to do so w/o passing the crime scene tape. We are told not to move until the Grocery pawllice say move..then the entire counter is wiped down including da pay buttons.
    When we move to pay there is a plexiglass shield..the checker and the Pawlice step back. Perfect compliance to the Rulez, allows us to leave the confinement.
    I’m glad you found all your necessities…my sympathies to the Mama on the status of the junk store.
    Hugs cecilia

  11. Throwing your stuffs on the belt from a distance has got to be hard. Suppose you are throwing eggs?! We are much the same here here but we don’t have to toss from a distance. Plastic shields are in place to keep the cashier and us safe from each other so we can still place groceries gently.

  12. If someone told us six months ago this is how it would be in the world today, we wouldn’t have believed them. You weimies make awesome guards.

  13. Brian says:

    I’m sure glad you were able to get most of the goodies you were hunting for!

  14. Is this movie over yet? Sci-fi or horror one, it’s tiresome.
    We gave up going to the store for groceries. The lines too long, with red X’s where you stand. And who would have thought police at the door? They did put big plastic shields in front of the checkers early on. The checkers clean the belt after every customer, so you have to wait before putting your stuff on it. And the people were just nuts.
    It’s tricky getting a pick-up order slot and managing to put your list in – I always for get something and can’t add it in! Luckily it appears the supplies are back up and we’ve reenable to get what we need even if different brands. But I miss picking out my own produce. And going by the bakery for fresh bread and the fish places on the bay for shrimp and fish.
    Good people have dogs to cheer them up!

  15. It sounds like you had a fairly successful shopping trip. We’ve gone to the buy online and let someone deliver it method. First one was fairly successful. We’ll see how the next one goes. The only problem with the buy online method is that you have to place your order about 5 days before you can receive it. Sorry to hear the junk store is closed.

  16. Good for you! If it’s anything like here, you have to drive to 5 or 6 stores that are open if you want everything on your list. Good thing petrol is down to $1.35/gal. Too many continue to fudge on social distancing around our neighborhood though the snow from the past couple of days has made them stay indoors. Stay safe and keep smiling.

  17. Kismet says:

    Our market has a free service. You order online and pickup a day or 2 later. You don’t get out of the car. Open the trunk and they load the trunk for you.

  18. you definitely have great attitudes!!! It is like we are all living in this surreal nightmare that we can’t awaken from! Stay safe/healthy! xoxo

  19. What an obstacle course getting groceries. All these precautions must cost the store owner a pretty penny. It is needed now though.

  21. That sounds pretty much like our #1’s shopping trips. First LIDL, then Leclerc. But tomorrow, when she goes out, #1 will also go to Bricomarché as they reopened today. That is SO exciting (she says)!

    Woofs,
    Ollie

  22. The same over here, Phenny and Nelly, Granny is allowed in the shop only, without Grandpaw. She feels like somewhere in space…MOL…or better, like a pawn…MOL😺Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday. Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏🐾😽💞

  23. We are sure hoping things start getting back to normal before this becomes the NEW normal!!
    xoxo,
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  24. lapaylor says:

    fascinating! Thanks for showing us what it’s like there. I laughed at your good phrasing, including a guard there to provide trouble if you’re looking for it!

  25. The OP Pack says:

    Our vet is open here, but just for curbside dropoff. Thankfully we haven’t had to go there – can you imagine the worry of being dropped off outside and Mom pulling away???

    Our stores are much the same, some of them even have one way aisles. Next thing you know there will be traffic lights monitoring the number of people allowed per aisle:)

  26. Things are the same here. Some stores now require that you wear a mask. Mom hasn’t been in a store for a while because she used delivery and curbside pickup.

  27. Lavinia Ross says:

    Shopping is a bit surreal over here, too. These are strange times.

  28. Yes, shopping isn’t what it used to be, that’s for sure. But just think how much you save by not being able to go to the junk store. 🙂 I shopped yesterday, wearing a mask for the first time, and then went today for my mom and dad. At 91 and 90, I don’t want them going out at all! I do wish we had Lidl here and there aren’t any Aldi’s in Arizona either. 😦 I know Aldi is going to open here at some point, but the virus will have delayed all that.

    Stay well!

  29. Same here. My sympathies to the mama. No junk store is bad news.

  30. Lee and Phod says:

    Man is our food getter and at the small local grocer, no big changes. He is going to the Costco tomorrow. We will see what he says about the experience.

  31. Jan K says:

    Yikes….things are crazy out there! I am going to have to venture out into the world tomorrow….the Dad cannot get everything we need/want at his store….wish us luck!

  32. grannyK says:

    It’s the same here. I don’t like it 😦

  33. Marsha Gay says:

    Congratulations on your trip out and safely getting back home. When we come to a street with no traffic we get out, walk down the middle of the street, and pretend we are on parade.

  34. Linda Burrup says:

    wish they would ban kids in the stores here, some people bring they whole family. Mom and dad went to the old peeps shopping time this morning and it was fairly quiet except for the dude with 2 kids at the check out. sheesh! and the younger woman with a mask on that kept cutting in front of mom & dad while they were waiting patiently for another shopper to move on a fair distance away. Mom wanted to yell at her!
    hugs
    Mabel & Hilda

  35. No junk store is sad for the Mama. Sadly your pictures look all too familiar.

  36. The Swiss Cats says:

    It’s the same here, shopping has become a weird adventure ! Purrs

  37. It sounds very similar to things around here. Mom has been getting groceries and stuff delivered, but she went to the bakery on Sunday to get some fresh bread. It did feel a lot like Fort Knox for sure. A hostess of some sort directed her to the line, lucky the loaves were long enough for her to reach and toss her money to the bakery lady. She had to follow the arrows to get out the furthest door from where she parked. I was excitedly watching the door where she went in, so she surprised me!! #staysafe

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  38. M. K. Clinton says:

    It is so weird, isn’t it? Was there a run on toilet paper there? It’s like finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow here! BOL! Our stores have arrows and spacers too. At least we don’t have to put make-up on since our faces are covered with masks.
