Well, so much for story time. I lost one follower and gained another. Goodbye to the one and Welcome to the other. The followers list continues to become more refined. I want people who think, are open to discussion and can remain civil. To much to ask, for some apparently!
I remain a pessimist. The candy coated reality that some embrace is like being in a carpeted jail with curtains covering the bars. You can pretend everything is nice while hopelessly trapped by the prison of conventional thought. Reality is not for everyone, just the survivors. When and if some great catastrophe occurs it will be the realistic people who ultimately prevail. Those who have fantasies about playing Rambo or Mad Max will discover that reality bears no resemblance to television and the movies.
But this blog is not for them anyway. This blog is for people who have taken the red pill, woke up to the truth, and are now trying to make sense of it all . Besides, as we approach the anniversary date of August 8th, the internal debate continues as to remaining, cutting back and closing down. So far cutting back is out in front. When the weather permits, I'd rather be outside doing something or taking the Mrs. out to dinner.
Ah! the sweet sound of the Mrs. giggling at something on the television coming from the other room. It makes me smile to myself. After the bad experiences I have shared with you, it should come as no surprise that my love for the Mrs. is the center piece of my life. She rescued me from a bad place, made me want to be a better man, helped me to heal, and loved me! I am indeed a very lucky man! We have been together almost 25 years, married almost 24 so far. Best years of my life to be sure.
It is time to go stock back up on provisions. Can goods are running low and such. Fill the freezer back up and get ready for fall when the snow birds return and shopping becomes a pain in the butt and parking becomes a nightmare. Can't get an appointment to see your own doctor in the winter time. Population doubles. Traffic! I like to go to the State Park in the winter for some peace and quiet. Just 5 miles down the road from my place.
