The Kroger’s was a bust, cleaned out. The Safeway a block down was a gold mine. There were some suburban types hunkered down in there, but they didn’t count on having to defend against living men with guns. Scared ‘em off, didn’t even have to kill nobody. A couple of the chicks even asked to join up with us.
Apart from the vanload of canned food, there was some unspoiled meat: they’d kept a freezer full going on generator power. Roberta’s got it thawed and curing. And I am now having my first bowl of ice cream in three weeks.
