    Well stated. LJS kind of lost it for me when they had display cases for the finished product and rivulets of cooking oil were all over them. As were those little fried droplets of batter. Then I moved away from their market for many many years. They probably don't have those displays any more.

    When I was a kid, Arthur Treacherís was one of those things you had to drive into the city (Chicago) for. Sort of like White Castle. That gave it a certain cachet. Do they still exist?

    I believe there's only one left, outside Akron Ohio. It's about a 250 mile roadtrip for me so even though I loved their fish, I didn't love it that much.

    Brings back memories of my high school part-time job at LJS. 2 pieces of battered cod and fries for $1.69.

    I have my tiny Christmas list mostly checked off--maybe one or two food-type items left. So I'm covered, no matter what happens.

    Amazon has been reliable and prompt, as always.

    I really haven't noticed any bare shelves in Santa Fe. The only thing there seems to be a shortage of is staff in every store and nurses. New Mexico moved to Crisis Standard of Care this week, which probably means I won't be able to get my little wrist surgery in December after all.

    Leaving for the Rio Grande of Texas next week. Hopefully, there are no/few shortages there. The landlord is providing a freezer we requested so we will not have to grocery shop as often. Will be happy to leave the miserable, cold north clime.
