Today at Sam's Club i saw a like minded soul.

      Wednesdays is my running around day. Normally I leave about 830 am to do our shopping. My wife hates shopping with me because I run the stores at marathon speed. Today I left at 1030 because she had the 2 yo grandson.
     I hate shopping and try to limit it to 1 trip a week. it goes.
Sams Club
Wal Mart
Grocery store/Butcher

     This week I needed a decent amount of stuff at Aldi's but had to hit Sam's for a few items for the BBQ and some more Hashbrowns and check flour and rice prices.
 As I went flying down the dry good isle there was a man with a buggy with  3 50lb bags of rice and 2 of flour . I slowed because he had picked up 2 25lb of pinto's and was debating on a 3rd.  Now I didn't know the man at all  BUT he had on a camo T shirt a Gadsden flag ball cap and an air about him.  When I passed him I said " 2 25s and a 10 fill 2 buckets ". He looked up as I kept going his look went from confused to a huge grin . Nothing else was said he grabbed the 10lb bag as I  rounded the corner still grinning.
    I finished up what I had to do and as I loaded the car I took a quick scan of the parking lot. Off on the side was a 90s dark green Ford Truck with slightly over sized Mud tires . If I had waited I bet its driver wore camo and a Gadsden hat.
    If you want to remain under the radar when buying prepp's blend in and don't drive your bug out truck.

P.S. starting the 26 th Peanut butter at Sam's will be 2.25 off. Rice beans, flour have dropped again.

A You tube must see

    While the country is very polarized this election facts still matter.
Here is a great video that analyzes both candidates to show who they will support. It  is refreshing to see two young attractive females speaking out in an intelligent and analytical manner.

Short vacation.

    Me and the wife went camping this week the temps have been perfect to be at the lake. I didn't want to go but she whispered promises in my ear so I was game. We had planed on leaving Tuesday morning but we kept the grand kids (4 &2)and that takes a day to recover from. I had to come home this morning to do BBQ but I will go back tomorrow after I get done. My wife's sister is staying with her while I am here. Even a short vacation helps recharge the batteries.

    I hate leaving the wife but the BBQ has returned to good profitability .After a long hot slow summer it feels good to be making decent money again. Which is needed because the water company finally approved to install the water meter at my daughters place. That's next weeks project having the water turned on and running down and fixing leaks. I still haven't found a licensed Electrician to run from the pole to the trailer. The power company has a new policy any inactive addresses for 2 years requires an inspection . I will set no dead line I have said end of the month since July and its now October .

Seasonal bargins.

    Every year we see stores markdown seasonal items to get rid of them. Summer cloths down to 1$ to make room for  Fall/Winter wear. Now I never shop for cloths I have a wife and 2 daughters and my cloths magically appear. Saturday my daughter gave me 4 shirts and a receipt for 8$. My wife got me 2 pair of sweat pants ( the ones that don't look like sweats) she paid 12$ for both. They had gone to Kohl's for 35% off plus 25% off that and used their Kohl's cash.

     To the ladies  bargain hunting is a full day out . It was my wife her sister and my daughter. Glad I worked and glad they had fun. They even got 2 electric can openers for nothing and a 5$ rebate on top .

     They had fun it was cheap for shopping. Now I am not immune to seasonal bargain hunting. I bought our camper in winter when prices were lower . I always car hunt in the fall because prices are less. This year I bought a good riding mower for 50$. Friday an acquaintance/friend came up to the BBQ just as I was getting set up . Grass cutting is over around here except for a winter trim out. He asked a 100 for his father riding mower (his dad died in June) I had just spent 100$ for the shotgun so I told him I didn't think I could swing a 100$. In the last 3 weeks this man has sold me 60$ in tools,  push mowers and other items . About an hour later he stopped again and said "50$ and its yours". I agreed  I knew his dad well, even had him work on some of my mowers in the past.

    Picked it up Sunday and all that it needed was air in 2 tires. It had a battery that was bought in may 2016 plus a set of extra new blades. This is a sweet running mower now I feel guilty about the price. I think I will give his Mom 25 more to ease my  mind . She can use it after all she lost her husband of 52 year and has a drunk 50 year old son driving her nuts. Now I have 3 riding mowers 2 will be sold this spring  at season premiums.
     P.S. Block buster BBQ weekend the cooler weather made sales more than double the last few weekends. Last months budget went red maybe this month will return it to black !

Got the H&R, parts for the others came in.

  This morning me and my son went and picked up the H&R . When we got home my order from Brownnell had come in. A normal person would go shoot a new gun but being abnormal I took the parts and fixed my Old marlin 25, bolt action 22 . The extractor spring was broke and I had lost the clip for it. Both were in the box and only took 5 minutes to put on.

   Last week I had bought some CCI quiet's for a friend. I went back and got me 3 box's for myself . I have never shot any Quiet loads before and wanted to test the old marlin I had just worked on. So I loaded the clip , walked out back and shot into an old log about 30 yards away . My son was beside me and asked what kind of round was I shooting? His air rifle was louder  we couldn't believe how quiet they were. Shot 5 rounds with open sights standing made a 3 " group 2" high to bull's-eye. I am sold, for a bolt or single shot 22 these are perfect if you want to be un-heard . I will defiantly be getting more of these !!!! While we were plinking a hawk swooped in and ran the chickens to cover. Big mistake for him he settled on a branch about 40 yards away and up easy shot I ruined his lunch and life. Normally I wouldn't have shot him but he had his eye on a chicken dinner .
     If you like to plink but are leary of the crack of normal 22's I highly recommend trying the CCI Quiet .
