Shopping 2020 Style by onewing

Shopping 2020 Style

I wasn't sure whether to post this photo on 365 initially because it is a composite David put together of a few photos taken from the Internet, but then I thought what the heck, live dangerously.

Times are a bit rough for all of us at the moment and we really need to have a smile put on our faces and retain our sense of humour

A few days ago David's brother Paul emailed us asking if we were okay and David replied saying 'Yes we are but shopping is a bit tricky these days' and attached this photo. It did cheer Paul and Val up though and made them smile. Both Paul and Val have lost their jobs at present thanks to Covid-19 and who knows when they will be working again.

We will all come out the other end of this trouble one day and then the world can return to normal again.


Disclaimer - If the original photographer/s of these photos wish to sue us for posting this picture they are wasting their time. David and I are over 70 years old and live on pensions. Our superannuation has dropped through the floor thanks to Coronavirus, so we haven't got anything worth suing for. I could give them my specs if that would help. ha ha. So all I can do is remove the photo should anyone complain.

PS Guess which person is supposed to be me and which is David!

Very topical and amusing.we gotta keep smiling.

Love it! The other day when it was announced NZ was going into lockdown, everyone had trollies full of essentials. I met a young man with a big bag of spuds under one arm and a box of beer under the other!

@dide ha ha at least he has a balanced diet with stuff under each arm

A good laugh brings out the endorphins and helps us cope all the better.
April 2nd, 2020  
Oh, that's great! I needed the laugh after a very frustrating grocery day.
April 2nd, 2020  
Love this , love how they prioritise their shopping !
April 2nd, 2020  
VERY COOL
April 2nd, 2020  
This gave me a laugh, I’m sure you are the one with all the alcohol 🤣🤣
April 2nd, 2020  
I'm sure you're the one with the wine - it's the only sensible thing to do!
April 2nd, 2020  
Made me smile this morning its a great fun image Babs:)
April 2nd, 2020  
Oh Babs...gave me a Big smile...thank you!
April 2nd, 2020  
Lovely fun shot.
April 2nd, 2020  
Well done on the edit on this evocative image. I try to amuse my children by putting on fun pictures of myself. I haven't had the courage to show them on 365 yet.
April 2nd, 2020  
Thanks for lifting my sprites this morning Babs. I'll pick the cart with the wine please. :) Glad to hear you are both doing well as can be during this very strange time.
April 2nd, 2020  
This is fun! Could I take both carts full, please?!
April 2nd, 2020  
I'm with @louannwarren . Wine always go better with food :))
April 2nd, 2020  
Fun pic. Hard to believe what we are going through
April 2nd, 2020  
Such fun and so true. In South Africa you cannot purchase any alcoholic beverages during the lockdown.
April 2nd, 2020  
Thank you for adding a bit of fun to our lives!

LOL That made my day. Cool shot and so creative.
April 2nd, 2020  
This is great! Shopping is very tricky in deed. We are getting our groceries delivered but it takes about 6 days from the time of ordering.
April 2nd, 2020  
nice work, David
April 2nd, 2020  
Very creative and funny!
April 2nd, 2020  
Haha, you of course are on the left, that would be my hubby on the right!!
April 2nd, 2020  
Very cool 😎 and apt. Fav,!! 😀
April 2nd, 2020  
I can't decide where to turn hahaha
April 2nd, 2020  
A photo of our time.....who would have thought?
April 2nd, 2020  
Great outfit.....still laughing!
April 2nd, 2020  
I would want some of each.
April 2nd, 2020  
A good laugh helps getting trough bad times.
April 2nd, 2020  
had to smile .... well at least one cart is filled with lots of healthy stuff. Take care, I'm sure they won't mind.
April 3rd, 2020  
You laugh, but I actually saw someone like this at the post office the other day...just kidding! But I did see a lady with rubber gloves on her hand and a mask over most of her face. Me, I just soak a paper towel in disinfectant and open and close the door with that without letting anything touch my hands. Oh well- I guess either way these two are stocked up for the long haul. One will pass it a little more pleasantly than the other in some opinions! (And as long as you're not selling prints of them- you're ok to post them.)
April 3rd, 2020  
Haha thanks for the laugh Babs!
April 3rd, 2020  
Brilliant and eerily real
April 3rd, 2020  
Oh good, I was hopeing you'd post that one. Ripper Rita.
April 3rd, 2020  
This is a picture for sore eyes. If I had to chose, I take the grocery buggy. our liquor cabinet is filled up. have to show this one my hubby, he'll get a kick out of it. very nice done, Babs. it's quite hilarious.

@brennieb @gardenfolk @ethelperry @mcmary @beryl @777margo @pcoulson @happysnaps @tonygig @sangwann @novab @merrelyn @bkbinthecity @salza @fishers @mittens @lynnz @ingrid01 @carolmw @koalagardens @happypat @jacqbb @tunia @pyrrhula @lesip @olivetreeann @radiogirl @jgpittenger @bruni Thanks, I apologise of making light about our dire situation worldwide at the moment, but I daren't think of how drastic thing could get and have to stay positive and keep my sense of humour. A sense of humour is about the only thing we can control at the moment. Hope everyone stays safe.

@kjarn @robz Ha ha, sorry to disappoint you but I would be the fruit and veggie person. I am the healthy one of the family. I do drink occasionally but I wouldn't be able to keep the bottle shop in business. I drink the equivalent of about 3 bottles of wine a year.

@louannwarren Yes Lou Ann you can have both carts.

@kwind I suppose we could have our groceries delivered, but it isn't worth it here as there are so many things we can't get now that I would have to go to the supermarket anyway after having to rethink meals.

@craftymeg Ha ha, yes I am the healthy one of the family.

@golftragic Thanks Marnie, I did think twice, but decided to live dangerously especially as it isn't my photo.
April 3rd, 2020  
@onewing I don't see a problem so long as you acknowledge the photo's provenance. I posted bushfire photos from online news, but was very clear they were not mine.
April 3rd, 2020  
Give credit and you are fine, in my humble opinion. It is not so much fun anymore...
April 3rd, 2020  
Haha! Fun though
April 3rd, 2020

No toiletpaper? :)
April 4th, 2020

April 5th, 2020  
put a smile on my face Babs hahahaha
April 5th, 2020  
Who would have imagined this scene a few weeks ago................
April 5th, 2020  
very funny ! Despite the situation ;)
April 6th, 2020  
yep... I did my shopping yesterday, I did a whole weeks worth and then had to pack it at the register.... I think Coles and woolies should supply bags and pack while this saga is continuing...
