    They'll be coming in around the 5th of Dec. They want to ship after the Holiday so there isn't any delay in delivery. Obviously I'm to unpack it and freezer it immediately. Shipping in dry ice.

    Almost time to get under that house and level it. I cleaned up around it so I can get under there. I know you're thinking "Fuck." and I am too, but in a few days I'll get under there and see about the foundation. Keep in mind I was under it a mere 10 years ago and the wood beams were in great shape. Water has been turned off since then, so I doubt it's any different now. I'll make final determination to proceed or give up at that point. Obviously there are some superficial exterior wood issues ,but the inside is surprisingly dry and the rafters in the attic are superb. Some rot underneath some windows. I intend to re-use all windows and doors.

    Happy Thanksgiving. I found this place online(elkusa) to buy different meats because I'm really tired of briskets and turkeys...so for Christmas I'll be cooking either an Elk roast or a Bear roast. I ordered a few of both so I could try them and see which my Mom might like better. I did run the idea past her and she's up for it.

    Yeah,they kept milling around.

    Yeah. Ruger rules. Nothing else has that level of quality at that price.

    Main body mass of a silhouette target, not a sheep or cow.

    I got in some handgun practice today. 50 yards with a .357 all six shots in main body mass. Also saw some livestock. I think the cow likes me.

    I did, but I think the muscle relaxers had something to do with it as well.

    My back feels much better today. Was able to go in and do some welding. At this rate,my welding rig will pay for itself before the year is out.

    Sorry to hear about your friend, Mike. There are so few people these days worth calling a friend...it's a real shame to lose one. I still think of my best friend in High School. I only knew him for four years before he died, yet twenty years later I still miss him. I spent all day today taking muscle relaxers and resting my back. Have to go do some welding tomorrow with my truck, and I can't miss out on the money. My Xbone X came in today. Pretty nifty piece of gear.

    On the bright side, I've decided to move forward with the renovation of my childhood home. It will be the biggest project I've ever done I suppose. I have some very interesting architectural features in mind. Outside, it will look like any other old fashioned house built in the 50s(It was originally a family residence on an Air Force base before my Grandfather bought it at auction for my Mother to have a home to raise us in.) Inside it will be very interesting I hope. Anyway, I intend to level it and put more support underneath this Winter while the snakes,wasps,etc are not an issue and I'll start in earnest after that. Probably around January. I have no good memories of that home. My sisters and I always hated it there. My Mother was a dreadful housekeeper and my sisters and I would never invite friends over because we didn't want them to ...well, even now I don't want to say why. My Mother signed it over to me some years ago. I think it was her way of trying to make up for blaming us for everything bad in her life, and I am the only one left who isn't a junkie, since my little sister died of cancer a few years back( as you may recall.) I intend to change the memories of that house. If I can turn that place into a cheerful home that honors the gift my Grandfather made to us, well then, I can do anything. I intend to post pictures. I will cover the entire project in here.

    I'll figure something out.

    I may have to settle for an extended stay in the wilderness somewhere. Sucks to say it, but my back keeps going out on me and I have no idea how I'd ever manage to carry a pack through the mountains. Last week I was working out,running my treadmill, etc. Today I'm sitting on my couch because a little welding and grinding fucked me up. Getting old sucks.

    Thank, Natural. Believe it or not, I try to do just that. I know that in the long run this path just has to be the better one.

    Yeah, it's a summer thing.
