    Going to Walmart

    For the special senior citizen shopping hour from 6-7am. Never thought I'd be participating in anything that was seniors only related but as the old saying goes "never say never" And yes I got my white tennis shoes on but they aren't New Balance. I'm one of the cool old guys that wears White Asics.

    I guess Walmart is calling it 60. Told the wife I'm going back next week cause by the time I got out of the store I didn't feel a day over 40. Hell I won the race to the toilet paper isle hands down.

    Is it really safe for all the seniors to be driving in the dark at 6 AM? Just saying, and I am in the cohort being discussed.

    Probably safer than the rest of the public driving and texting, putting on make-up and doing the cell phone thing.

    I am a senior and do Walmart online shopping for a few years now. I do like it because they bring it out to your car and load it if you want. I have had a few minor problems but over all happy with them until recently. They are out of a lot of things but you can most of the time find substitutes. The problem is the meat department. Online they show they are out of everything fresh. So I called them and found out they do have meat but no longer offer it online. The lady said that people were hoarding it and they wanted more control over it. I told her that was a poor excuse because they already limit you to 2 of many items so why not do it with meat. So they have lost my business I now go to a major chain grocery store. They offer the same services cost a little more but I feel comfortable not dealing with going into the store. Everyone stay safe out there. This will be the first time in my life I will miss spring fishing...Rant Over.
