    Cary is still laying in firewood from the tree that fell in our yard. Our wood shed is almost full, and he still has a few more cords to split and stack.

    Still rotating and stocking my pantry room, which is an ongoing process as money is available.
    I got a late start planting this year. Usually I buy the plants "Pre-Grown" for a head start but because Mrs. Bear lost her job I had to plant seed which takes a little more time to get started.

    I have pieces of a fallen tree I need to cut up for winter....it's on my "List" of things to do.

    Two days ago I almost herniated a disk in my neck trying to do something mundane. Have a goose egg on the back of my head/neck. Dr. said it was fluid but I came really close.

    Soooo I was feeling kinda down about myself so when that happens theres only one thing to do = go fishing.

    I heard they stocked my favorite pond with tiger trout. Id never heard of them so I went to see if I could spook one up but alas.

    What I did do instead was catch two golden trout and a rainbow. Right into the chest freezer.

    Which reminds me: One of the things on my Prep List is an alternative source of electricity for the freezer. Right now I put water bottles in it so it'll stay cold longer if the power goes out. Since $ is an issue right now I'm setting that project on the back burner. Speaking of projects I'm going to build a solar cooker with the help of the Rabbi's kids. Teaching them how to be self-suffient is a big deal for me.
    Id rather be deplorable than despicable.

    When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

    What we started from seed didn't do so well, so we are some what in a half, and half. Some store bought, some self grown.

    My yard looks goods now that the tree that fell is up and the wood n a pile close to my wood shed. Got a lot of splitting yet to do. BUT now I can do it when nothing else needs doing.

    Sorry for your neck, and ya mean fishing didn't fix it? Boy, that is bad.

    Man, that is one of the best ideas I've ever heard.

    When SHTF fish in someone's Aquarium for Gold Fish. LOL

    Great looking fish. Great catch.
