ANOTHER CEE’S ODDBALL – WEEK 24

CEE’S ODD BALL PHOTO CHALLENGE: 2015 WEEK 41

This time of year, it’s hard to remember to take pictures of anything except foliage. New England in October is all about foliage. It’s a bit late this year and it just beginning to really get fully engaged in this thing we call Autumn. Still, stuff happens and the other day, there was a blackout at Hannaford.

We were there. Waiting in the pharmacy section for our annual flu shots … when the lights went out. The manager didn’t like me taking pictures. He pulled the old “it’s against our policy” but that’s nonsense. I’ve taken hundreds … maybe thousands … of pictures in the store and no one cared and I’m pretty sure there’s no such policy.

I took a few more pictures.

Inside the store, people were resigned to having to find something other than their credit cards to pay for groceries.

Garry and I had to wait for the power to come back because you just can’t do anything in the pharmacy without computers.

This is 2015. That’s just the way it rolls.

  2. Stores (even without electricity) are so fun to take photos of. 😀

  3. Oh boy, I never carry cash since I had my purse stolen this May at the library. I would have to leave and go to an ATM if one would work with somewhere else. Funny odd ball shots, Marilyn. 🙂

    • There’s a Bank of America about a hundred feet away with all the ATMs you could want. But it is an inconvenience. We just waited. It was just about half an hour, not the end of the world and faster than going home and coming back again 🙂

  4. I think I might have not waited beyond about 10 minutes — there would still be flu shots available when the lights came back on! Of course, I get my flu shots only about 2 miles from home.

  5. Didn’t this happen to you once before? Or at least, the machines were down and you couldn’t use credit?

    • Yes, it did. To Garry. This time it was both of us, but Garry is convinced the unnamed “they” are out to get him. Slow drivers. Power outages. You know. Stuff.

      • I went without power for 4 days earlier this year. The rest of my neighborhood was only out about 12 hours. This used to happen monthly when I first moved here–and the water pump either broke or some water pipe broke frequently. I think I had to have a water truck deliver several times. Things have improved considerably now with the electricity only going out for a matter of hours a few times a year. See if that makes Garry feel better. Nothing more comforting than someone who has worse luck than ours!
