Cool and clear, at least for another day or two.
It did get into the 80s in the sun yesterday, and the air is still saturated, but it’s very pleasant compared to a month ago.
I spent the afternoon dropping off a couple more things for the local auction. I stopped by my industrial auctioneer, and he doesn’t want any more stuff until next year. Dang. My local guy isn’t interested in taking much more of my stuff this year either. I’m hosed. I haven’t even gotten spam from my craigslist listings. I am going to have to get a FB Marketplace account. I’ll have to set up another lappy to do it, as I won’t have that spyware on my main or secondary machine. I’ve got some researching to do. No way I can reach my goals without moving stuff a pallet at a time.
My non-prepping hobby club meets today, but I still don’t know if I’ll attend. Bigger venue, temps taken, and masks enforced, but I’m coughing again, and daughter’s classmate tested positive, and all that. Seems unwise to be in a room full of guys older than me. Maybe I’ll just go hang out in the parking lot. It’s double suck because it’s the day we have our own little swapmeet just for members, and there is probably stuff I could sell if I’d known with more than 3 or 4 days notice.
I’ve also got to pick up some domestic bliss stuff in Conroe, which is an hour and a half round trip if there is traffic.
I’m sure there is a lot of stuff for me to do here as well 😉 like drain the pool, cut the grass, fix the broken stuff, move/organize/put away….
I’m going to take daughter’s advice and see if I sleep through my alarm or not. In any case I expect to be away from the computer for a while.
Election Flockery continues apace. I had to read the wiki to be sure of something. When I mentioned it, my wife reacted as if the Rs forced the 2000 Florida recount to steal the election, so it’s all just karmic balance… Which of course wasn’t what I remembered. I was right, the Ds filed for the recount, which the Rs tried to kill several times. Also the allegation was incompetence and racism, not MASSIVE and ORGANIZED fraud. Just ‘cuz the Rs ended up winners, they get blamed for it. Wasn’t the case at all. In the end it came down to <1000 votes, not 90,000.
Pray for an aggressive and righteous response to the allegations of fraud by the appropriate agencies, or we’ll be praying for the souls of our dead.
You can’t have too much, or stashed in too many places. Start thinking about dispersal and cover, hiding places and friends in useful places. Just in case they come for you or your stuff. It’s happened before, it will happen again. And keep stacking, resources, skills, knowledge, and contacts.
