    The Amish cabinet makers have had our order for condo kitchen cabinets since early February 2021. That’s eight months.

    They have now built them and are painting my cabinets. Apparently they are having trouble getting cabinet hardware so I suspect my cabinets are done and they’re sitting around the shop waiting for hardware. Ugh.

    I'm in the middle of a re-build of our rather extensive rear deck, replacing 25 year old wooden planks, stairs and rails with maintenance free composite materials. Apparently railing materials are on the unexpectedly unavailable list, the supplier doesn't expect to have them available till December at the earliest.

    Whatís getting me now is the huge jump in prices. Cranberries and sugar are very high in price right now. A small 3 cup bag of cranberries (downsized from 4 cups) is $3.97 CAD. A 2 kg bag of sugar (4 pounds) was on sale for 2/$5 CAD.

    What I am noticing in our local Nova Scotia grocery stores is that when they have a sale, the shelf is bought out right away, and they arenít being restocked. Whether this is a shortage or a policy/management issue, I donít know. But if we donít get there the first day of the sale, itís gone.

    Sorry you are not closer. I just gave a $100+ worth to my niece. I had to put my girl down last week. I've known her all her 22 years, but she was only mine for the last 13 months. (reason I moved into this house) Her kidney's were shutting down (lost 1.5# out of 6.6#). I find myself, meowing at an empty house, looking for her still.

    Was at a restaurant supply house Saturday. Chicken was 85% gone. Was told by someone I know, whose sibling works at Tyson, that a decent price increase is coming, due to help shortages.

    The other thing (debatable about unexpected), I find in REAL SHORT SUPPLY, is patience.

    Wow! All of these 20+ Year old cats around!

    TMS I’m glad you were able to stay in the cat’s house for the last months of her life so she was not rousted out of her home at an advanced age.

    There’s a very elderly cat in my neighborhood whose mom and dad have been transferred back to Germany. She lived in Germany a few years ago and then traveled to the United States, but now they’re going back to Germany. At this point she’s 21 years old, in kidney failure, being treated of course because they’re quite obsessive about it, and the mom of the family is staying put here until the cat dies.


    Oh how I wish all the cats in the world were this well treated. Well, I wish all the children in the world were this well treated!
