    Yesterday I received a three pound jar of Chocolate Coated Raisins & a three pound jar of Cashews along with two bottles of Sauvignon Blanc and two bottles of Pinot Noir. delivered to my apartment. Two days ago I received a Queen Size Memory Gel Mattress Topper. Living alone and not liking to go out to stores makes online shopping inexpensive and convenient.

    My last online purchase was a Lego set for youngest grandson birthday. I will probably send the 3 youngest in Illinois something from Amazon Prime for Halloween....was just looking at that.

    But in general I like going out to stores.

    @Lon Tanner
    I have on order a replacement for this:

    Wondering if they will ship in a huge box, or what. It would be about 5 feet X 3 feet X 2 feet! When I order tires on-line, they ship with no covering at all, in pairs (if 2 are ordered), fastened together by tape. The UPS guy just handles them like that!

    I just remembered that you don't drive anymore @Lon Tanner so online shopping is a good thing for you or anyone else that doesn't drive.

    Do you have a shuttle bus available where you live to take you places or do you rely on Uber?

    Dates, which arrived today. Hannaford quit carrying the ones with pits, and the pitted ones are too dry.

    Oakmont has a courtesy limo for scheduled appointments and a bus for shopping trips etc. I still use UBER for other occasions.

    @Lon Tanner you had me at Chocolate Coated Raisins.

    Some of my favorite memories was buying a box of 'Raisinets',
    sitting in the balcony, watching the latest 'Monster Movie' as a kid.

    The 'rattle' of the box told you how many you had left!

    The last thing I ordered was this tungsten ring.

    My rings with diamonds are constantly bumping into things, snagging things. I wanted something that was plain but still pretty. My granddaughter got a tungsten ring and It was pretty. So I ordered this one. They are not expensive and they are don't scratch, unlike gold. This one is really pretty. The blue and rainbow color inset catches the light and flashes it back.

    Last thing I ordered was a hardback book... think it was 2 weeks ago... I've been very tardy lately when it comes to buying anything online. I just don't seem to need anything

    The very last thing I had ordered was a Refrigerator Freezer Combo yet it arrived severely damaged. Been through the whole complaint process and am now waiting for it be picked up again this afternoon and, hopefully, to be replaced some day next week. Have been without a kitchen for almost three weeks now. What a hassle. :eek:
