Bonanza


          Nope, not the TV show that ran from 1959 to 1973 NBC.
          I scored big-time today. My Guy hit one potential hotspot for toilet paper today and came home, tossing a four-pack to me the way the Great Hunter would lay a felled buffalo at his woman’s feet. It was a big moment.
          After his report of success, I vaulted into my car and roared back to the source. At this Dollar Tree they hadn’t even bothered to unpack the rolls from the cartons, which sat by the registers. No need to cart them to the shelf at the back of the store. They’d likely only last another 20 minutes.
          My roll of four on the back seat, I was fired up. I rolled on to a nearby Dollar General. Here I was allowed TWO four-packs. If there had been anyone I could have leaped into the air to high-five (back in the days when we touched each other), I would have. 

          I may just spread them all loose on the bed and wallow.

  1. Oh my.
    Who would ever have thought that toilet paper could be a source of so much joy.
    When/if it appears it is severely rationed here. One pack of four would be your limit.

  2. I'm sure there is no one in your community who needs them that won't be grateful you scored some. No worries on your part. Maybe next time buy all the cleaning products......you never know, eh?

    1. Oddly, it looks like a lot, but the brand on the top of the picture has rolls so small you can go through all four rolls in about two days.

    2. Whoops. I meant ONE roll in two days. Didn't mean to suggest we were suffering from Montezuma's revenge.

  3. That is SO FUNNY. But I am glad you are now in TP Heaven. Bwahaha! :-)

  4. It was explained to me: in the not so distant past much of the population used the facilities and the TP at their place of employment. All that's happening now is we are matching the old volume from a new distribution network. I've found my cleaning supplies at Dollar General, too. Haven't needed TP yet, but hope they have some when I do.

    1. For me, it was Pernell Roberts. Although my interest couldn't have been too deep since I can't remember his character's name.

  6. Wow, you did score well! I haven't even bothered to look for toilet paper in the last six weeks.
    Purnell Roberts played Adam in Bonanza.

  7. Such a comforting feeling enough toilet paper is. I finally found a pack today for the first time (I was down to 2 rolls) and now I feel like I have money in the bank and am rich. Live is good.
    I was an Adam fan too and quit when he left the show.

    1. Yes, we were very low. But since I only shop (at my grocery store that hasn't had TP for over a month) about every 3 weeks, we're now, shall we say, good to go!

  8. Oh dear me, the things that please us!
    Congratulations on scoring several hits, for a while you can use the loo without having to cut up newspaper squares first.

  10. A few years ago I hurt my back resulting in two weeks of agony. Once I put tv on at 2 am as I couldn't concentrate to read because of the pain and Bonanza came on. I watched it and it distracted me for a while. I was grateful just a you are today, my back got better and this will too, keep safe.

  12. Thank you for calling in on my blog (Weaverofgrass) today Marty. You made me smile when you said you were pleased to hear I had a companion on my daily walk. Percy - my 'companion' - is my wheeled walking aid - I have severe arthritis and can't walk without some support. Do call again.
