We don't have a lot of trouble with deliveries, because all of our deliverers basically know us, and even if we're away at the moment, they know we never go very far afield, and will be back soon. The ones who don't know us quite as well will often leave the package in the shop where it's cooler, instead of  outside where it might heat up too much. There ARE advantages to this rural/small town environment!  :)

Snap Wally! 104 here this morning too. 96 at bedtime last night.

LOL Tamagno, I have done that so many times that I always label and date anything that goes into the freezer.

GrammaBear, I'd be leery of ordering online after reading some of the comments. Several people said the delivery service would't leave the package unless some one was home as they are perishable. Frozen I think... Now I am almost always home, but if they won't leave the package if I am not, that could be a problem. Does the PO/UPS/FEDEX have freezer storage??? Please let us know how your deiivery goes.


Barb  - I am having trouble with blurry vision, so I wasn't able to read any of the comments.  I probably should have asked my hubby to read them for me.  At any rate, I will let you know how things turn out.  I wish you well at your Dr appts and at the grocery store.  I hope they have what you want.  :)

104 this morning.  Tamagno, been there, done that.  I never write on the outside what is in the package because I always am sure that I will just know what it is.  Nope, sometimes it is a surprise.   :D
Not worried about getting "smart home" fever here.  I'm just not into it.  I would never own an "Alexa" or similar and I don't even use Siri on my iPhone.  I have no problem using a light switch and I have no need to turn on my A/C from across town but even in this kind of backwater town there are many that deem this sort of thing necessary.
