More good news - not!

Since today is practically the last day I've got wheels - not including those on my bike - I tried to do some things that are easier with transportation.

I stopped at Mike & Viv's to say hi, hear how they were doing, and they told me that they are suffering from the same problems as quite a lot of companies are right now : everything is on hold, and whatever they supply needs to be paid in advance, since too many companies go down, pulling others with them.

Wow... I knew it was bad, but I never realized it was that bad! I mean, one reads about bankruptcies and closings and such, but after dealing with it myself, others report it too. Bad sign... very bad sign.

I also tried to pick up some ferret food since the regular store I go to is closed for at least another 2 or 3 weeks due to moving, and I failed. I know of one store where I might find ferret food, but they only had the crappy stuff, and I'm not feeding my ferrets crappy stuff. No way!

Picked up a lot of groceries, mostly heavy things like frying pan oil, water, soap and things, and I'll be getting more tomorrow. Once again... easier to transport it with a car.

Now I'll have to either arrange for someone to pick me up tomorrow or find a way to get from Aartselaar to Deurne. I could call Joco or Eef, as I'm sure they'd do it for me, but I won't. I'm gonna find a way myself. If the weather is fine, I'll throw the bike in the back and ride it back, if not, I'll either hitchhike or take a bus. I've gotta get used to dealing with things like that anyway.

Could you not get it delivered from the Internet? Sometimes it's cheaper and easier to stock up that way. I've been without a car for months now as some idiot took it out. :)
