No Gas In Valdese

Well this is an interesting situation. All of a sudden, there is no gasoline to be had in Valdese, North Carolina, at any price. Another good reason not to mow the grass. It's not an issue for me at the moment, since my daily commute consists of walking the dog around the neighborhood. I do drive to the post office, but if it came to it, I could walk, especially if the weather stays cool (it wont). It'd take a couple hours out of my day, but I could drop in & say howdy to the folks at Cornerstone afterwards, and by folks I mean Eugene the dog, then drop in Mrya's for their hot dog basket & make a day of it. Maybe I could buy a whitlin' knife from Albert and get a basket somewhere, and sit down on one of the benches on Main Street and watch the world go by. I could become a street person, that'd be cool. Just walk around, cross personal boundaries and say weird things to people. I really should branch out.

Personally, I won't feel the effects of no gas in town unless it goes on a month or so. And by that time, the grass is gonna look pretty bad. And I wouldn't worry about that so much, except snakes like tall grass & this is a snaky place and I don't like snakes. I'm not sure when snakes finally head underground in North Carolina. They need their hoodies today 'cause we're getting soaked with a cold rain.

Now, this, seeminly out of the blue, coupled with banks failing all over the place, and it makes ya wonder. I wonder if PayPal's in danger? Maybe we could move all our money there........

Regarding snakes and hoodies, how they gonna put them on since they don't have hands?

I think you should sit on a bench and whittle. You could sit in front of Myra's with Alabama and holler our weird stuff now and then. No one would mind.

Looks like no gas left in Rockwell, NC, either. Crazy stuff.

Snakes'll put their hoodies on the same way they dig holes, I reckon.

Yep, I heard Nashville, TN was out, & so was Charlotte, NC. Supposed to get better shortly, from what they say on the news.
