GoodDay

...Wow what a differance...
...puter went crazy,modem did the 'crash' thing...fixin everything went slow at best...lots of activity around the house...back online...commented about the net going away,one day in the comments,and suffering an 'lack of information' withdrawal...Yep,i had em'...
...but on the upside,i found some valuable additions to the 'stores'...the misses got a digital camera,and with my puter 'fixed',i'm lookin forward to playing with it.Additions to my pictures without doing it the somewhat old fashioned way,pictures developed to 'disc'thing...anyway...in my 'prepdom',i found a box(es) of stuff,things i forgot i had,kinda thing...one of them had four roles of duct tape,two 10x10 ft tarps,two 5x8 ft tarps,parachute cord 'ropes'(love that stuff),couple roles of heavy twine,and a few other odds-n-ends...took a while to figure that one out...i mean i kinda,vaguely,remember it,but...nope...i dont...i don't remember packin' that box...i'll take it anyway,incorporate it to my stores,i will...i found my old wrist rocket slingshot...with extra band and two of the packs of ball bearing 'ammo'...remember those ?...the band on it is junk,but the replacement band in the package is just stating to show those little cracks...i played with it for ten minutes at least...yep,ill take that too...very underated tool indeed...some of the other goodies i found were the fourpacks of small 'sterno' cans...two cans were missing from three fourpacks...score...found a box in the shed that had my 'hotseats',a few of the chemical handwarmers,some candles(always good),a box of ohio bluetips,and a couple small tackle boxes that held the 'pearlies' from my ice fishin' past in michigan...anyway...my point is,i guess,is that during the ups and downs of the puter and internet,i was able to 'keep preppin'...with no expenditures(and no 'news'...ahhhhh...)
...actually was bored to death,couple of the coldest days ever just passed...spent most of it in garage going thru those aformentioned boxes.Came away with a 'positve'...after so many 'negatives'...i needed that...we all need that...more 'positives'...

...its sunny out there,at least thats positive...man,i cant wait for warm weather...

...Good Day to All...

Glad You're back up and running. I'll use your experience as a lesson towards my own prepping-- 'cause I GOTTA have the computer...

BTW, I've given you the "HONEST SCRAP AWARD"!

don't get all excited just yet... I think "award" is a piss-poor choice of words...

All for fun anyhow!

Good to have ya back, buddy. And glad you were able to make positive with the down-time!

Ken, glad things are on the up side for ya man. I find stuff all the time that I put away and forgot about, just like Christmas to me. Sounds like you found some real goodies. I guess it's good you had puter trouble, help get more preps in line for ya. Good job.

Hey Ken-- what post was that comment on? I'll be glad to elaborate, if I can...

Found it, man! I think what I was trying to say is, the post read like I was sitting there talking to you, or rather listening to you describe the day, and life of late in general; just life and living...
Not exactly sure why the word choice, but I know so often I feel, when reading blogs from this awesome little "community", that that's what I'm doing-- living the experience vicariously through yalls words. That post was vivid for me, called to mind similar circumstances on this end...

Thanks, Man! Good to be included in the circle you 'visit' everyday. Warms my heart, truly, and makes me right proud...

Like the man said "Christmas all over!"...I've been finding stuff all this year that I forgot about having!

Glad to know it wasn't just me having one of those "age things"!! I have enough of them to contend with!
