In a stroke of luck yesterday I was in the cleaning supply aisle just as they were re-stocking the store brand clorox disinfecting wipes.
I took two cannisters. The stock guy said "Limit one per customer." I nodded and kept moving.
I went through self check out and no alarms or bells went off when I scanned my two cannisters of wipes.
I just strolled out of the store without incident.

I opted for the larger Major Dickason's Blend (now 18 oz., btw). It was on sale for a dollar more than the 10.5 oz. size, so I bought two bags. I'm much happier now that I don't grind the beans. Much less mess. Tastes the same IMO.

My cat is morbidly obese (not my fault, she was like that when I adopted her last summer) and can’t reach to groom her luxuriant ass fur so if I don’t bathe her she smells like a New York subway stairs. When she finally gets down to a healthier BMI she’ll be able to clean herself. But her cat shampoo (Hyponic natural therapy hypoallergenic) gives her fur a really nice texture and fragrance you’re not going to get from cat spit.

Hi JackJackson at r183.
Appian Way rings a bell, but I've not tried it.
As you may now remember, Chef Boyardee box pizza comes with sauce, dough that you have to mix and set, and granular woodchips, aka "parmesan cheese". I added provolone and mozzarella, onion, mushrooms and hamburger pennies.
And now I'm deflating and crashing...

I'm trying to decide where to put it now that it's together. Its much longer than the desk I'm currently using. I've shared the link below.

Googling, I learned that the car dashboard dates from the horse-and-carriage era. A wooden board was placed in front of the carriage driver to protect him from mud and sleet dashing up from the horses’ hooves. Same thing with the first automobiles. This evolved into our modern dashboards where we find our driving instruments.

The metal scraper removed excess skin but it left a rough surface which gets dirty easily.
The Dr Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Foot Filer (cost approx $35.49) smooths the skin down but you need to use it frequently (weekly). I use it in conjunction with a thick sorbalin-type cream to 'bind the cracks' together and lubricate the skin. I'm very happy with it.

I bought a landline phone from Amazon that stopped working within hours so I had to return it to a little shop near Hammersmith Bridge, (which is falling down, so you can't cross it, but I didn't want to cross it so it doesn't matter). Big kerfuffle at the shop scanning into some machine and God knows what else.
Walked back along the Thames. Lovely Autumn smell in the air. Kicking the leaves as I went. Terribly gay I felt.
Went into a sort of fancy supermarket/deli to buy some jars I'd bought earlier this year. He said I was lucky because he was putting them away, so I had to rifle through a box of them. I bought some of what looked like Prosciutto, I asked him what it was exactly, he said he didn't know in English. So I said what language do you speak and he said Romanian and I said I don't speak Romanian, neither did the other guy who was having an incredibly involved conversation with.
We're supposed to be in 'Lockdown' but everywhere was very lively and gay. I stopped in McDonald's and got a 1/4 pounder w cheese, I said "make sure it's hot" - but it wasn't hot so I returned it. In the meantime, I dropped half of my fries on the floor. When she brought me the hot burger I asked for more fries as they had grown cold (the ones that hadn't fallen on the floor). She made a huge fuss about this, ranting at me with her mask on and thru the plexiglass with her foreign accent, I couldn't understand a word she was saying. Anyway, she replaced them in the end. Brought it all home. Absolutely delicious.

I have a lot of trouble finding duvet covers I like. That are comfortable. No man-made fibres, not too high thread count...on and on it goes. So I bought a great expense a repeat of the one I've got from fancy pantsy Cologne & Cotton (or rather fake fancy pantsy) and...they've reduced the quality. Scratchy. Nasty. Cheap feeling. £70 for that thank you very much.
Then last week, I saw a duvet cover at Sainsbury's supermarket in Hayes. It was more a sort of flannel I think. Brushed cotton? Not expensive. So I took the plunge and...it's perfect. Warm and soft and cosy. So I thought, go back and get another. Unfortunately, there weren't any there, they'd been replaced by "Christmas duvets covers" - some had bunnies on them or foxes.... scenes of winter. There's no way I'm buying them.

All the leaves have fallen off my trees in my garden and now I can see the sky! They've grown so tall, my neighbours on both sides have complained. I had no idea when I put them in that they'd grow taller than the house.
Funny thing though, having substantial trees in a very small garden makes the garden look bigger and more substantial and they're in the north so they don't take anyone's sun if that makes sense.

I find duvet cover wrestling too whelming as well. I buy cheap comforters at Target. They are reversible and come in many colors, so you can vary your bed's color scheme at will. With a top sheet, they're the perfect weight for summer and the perfect weight for winter when a blanket is added. I like to have a lot of covers on the bed. It's cozy.

Lesson in duvet cover changing: I follow the Martha Stewart method learned yrs ago from her tv program. Turn cover inside out. Match and hold 2 corners with the duvet and pull cover over duvet until you can hold and shake it in. Ensure you match corners and edges as you go along. Takes 2 mins with one person. Fabulous! And ensure you button or zip cover side or else small beasts snuggle in between there and get surprised when you come to bed and panic!!

I wish someone hadn't mentioned bathrobes. Along with duvet covers that's an even bigger problem for me and one I haven't conquered. Yet again, they have to be 100% cotton. But they seem to make them too big and heavy these days, so I sweat like a pig in them. I had a perfect one but it's so old and disgusting, I even dyed it because the colour had washed out and it looked so sordid - but it's full of holes. I've bought so many replacements but they're all failures. Funnily enough France is a great place to buy them, but I haven't been back for about ten years.

SPOILER ALERT, This one’s plot was whelming: [italic] Halloween. Maureen Swanson is the scourge of the neighborhood. At age nine, she already has a reputation as a hard slapper, a loud laugher, a liar, and a stay-after-schooler. The other kids call her Stinky. So sometimes when Maureen passes the crumbling (and haunted?) Messerman mansion, she imagines that she is Maureen Messerman–rich, privileged, and powerful. Then she finds a way into the forbidden, boarded-up house. In the hall are portraits of seven young women wearing elaborate gowns and haughty expressions. Maureen has something scathing to say to each one, but then she notices that the figures seem to have shifted in their frames. So she reaches out her finger to touch the paint–just to make sure–and touches . . . silk! These seven daughters of privilege are colder and meaner than Maureen ever thought to be. They are wicked, wicked ladies, and Maureen has something they want.
