Shhhhh – be very very quiet.
I’ve snuck into the office to use the satellite internet connection. It means I can post some photos.
Here is the shop I am managing. Or mis-managing.
Not that there is a lot of stock on the shelves at the moment. A new order is being prepared but whether the truck can get across the flooded rivers and boggy roads is in the lap of the Gods.
Fruit and Veg is almost a long lost dream. A few cabbages, two half celery’s and some wrinkly capsicum remain. Potatoes and onions sold out last week and oranges and apples disappeared just as I arrived.
Milk is now powdered as the fresh milk has sold out.
As have the bread and the eggs almost all of the breakfast cereal. Fruit Juice and soft drink will be gone by Wednesday this week.
At least there is still plenty of meat and for some reason we have an abundance of frozen Ham and Pineapple pizzas. We also have a few boxes of frozen Kangaroo Tails, a delicacy amongst the locals.
I am fast learning how to prepare for shortages. I am making sure my own pantry is stocked up with essentials.
Of course, if the truck cannot get through, we will resort to the good old standby.
An Airforce Hercules Airdrop.
It will be fun chasing those parachutes as they float away in the breeze.
The time scale here seems to be flexible. I may be here for another fortnight or a month or even another two months.
My Bank Manager will love me if it is another two months!
I only hope that by then I will still have some readers here on the weirdest blog in the blogoswamp.
