This and That

June 6th, 2022 at 04:29 pm

I went to the bank to buy quarters -- I could only get one roll, which is what happened last time. I guess I'd better start spending cash, if only to get quarters. Some condo-dwellers like me have told me that their housing associations have taken the change appartatus off their machines, making laundry free, but have raised the assessment fees by $20 a month. I like the convenience of that, but I wouldn't like a $20 charge. I pay less than that for laundry.

Anyway, I got my one roll, and then, because the bank is close to Mariano's, I walked over there to buy a few things that are not available at Aldi. I spent $10 there. One thing I managed to buy was popcorn. Yay!

I was planning on going to Home Depot and Aldi today, but it's pouring down rain. I may wait till it stops, or I may wait till tomorrow. I have to go out tomorrow, for the gym and my senior meals. Maybe it would make sense to do it all at once.

Speaking of senior, I am planning to attend a couple of free lecture sessions at the senior center on Thursday. One is on the use of polymers in medicine, and the other is about Parkinson's. Most of my interest in going to just to get out and be among people again, but I used to date someone who was a polymer scientist, and I have a dear friend who has Parkinson's. That particular sessions sounds like it might be more of a support group, but I would like to learn a little more about it.

My son installed my air conditioners yesterday, even though the temperature is still moderate. When the heat cranks up, as it will, I will be ready for it.

Forgot to mention -- I also spent $40 on gas. And that was for half a tank! At Sam's!

    Sounds like there’s still a coin shortage which is interesting.

    My mom has Parkinson’s, diagnosed almost 4 years ago. I think she’d enjoy a support group, but she rarely gets out lately.

    CB, is your bank convenient to other places you go? If so, I would just stop by more frequently to get quarters.
    I live in a small building - only five of us share the laundry. Since the pandemic started, the person who manages everything (by his own choice) converts currency for quarters for us if we need them. I do get them from the bank too, but it is nice to have a backup.

    Sadly, the bank branch close to me has closed, so I do travel a ways to get quarters. But the branch I go to is not only near Mariano's, but also across a street from a mall. Not that I do much mall-shopping! But I do visit Kohl's occasionally.
