Today was an interesting day. I decided to try another grocery pick-up to see if the items that weren't in stock a few days ago might be available. Unfortunately, about half of what I ordered at QFC wasn't found, particularly the no salt added items. So I decided to try ordering from Safeway and arranged a pick-up time in the early evening. Arriving at 8340 15th Ave NorthEAST, I realized that I should be at 8340 15th Ave NorthWEST. That required a trip of several miles and when I got there the street was closed off by police cars. I managed to find a back way into the parking lot and got my groceries.
Driving out of the lot, I spotted these tents on the sidewalk just outside. The homeless folks had chosen a shady spot that would allow them access to the facilities in the store. It's the first time I saw tents on the sidewalk in a quiet residential neighborhood and it was disheartening. No one should have to live like that.
Safeway had most of the items I needed, but it's still not possible to get Kleenex or toilet tissue. I'll have to look online again. Looking forward to seeing the twins tomorrow.
