Shopping adventures during a pandemic

Usually I have some fun little mom and pop shopping adventure to share with you all.  I still have a couple I could share with everyone that are in my archives, before this pandemic started that is, but I thought it would be better to share with you instead what it is like shopping here…

Shopping adventures at a Teddy bear store

  Back in March, before the lock downs, before the numbers and anxiety, I decided it would be nice to stop by a little shop I sometimes will visit a few times a year to get my Teddy bear fix. Yeah, that’s right…I love teddy bears. I think they are so cute. Although I haven’t…
