I’m a little late with the reblog. We’ve been busy over here, spending time together before moving Robin up to Oregon.

It’s interesting to note how the percentage of coverage by store customers varies by the time of day. I typically grocery shop early afternoon (motivational issues on my part) and see 10% to 40%. Today, I went mid-morning (motivated by and following free state COVID-19 testing earlier in the morning) and saw 75% to 90% at 3 different grocers.
Wow! In all honesty I don’t venture out often and the last time I was out was before Arizona made masks mandatory. 10% of customers wearing masks was about what I saw not sure if it has changed. But TMZ did post the footage of a woman knocking down the mask display in Target and she happened to live in Scottsdale so I think people in AZ are not liking the mask mandate.
