Bought 12 bottles of iso/butane for the pack stove, a collapsible fishing rod and a few hooks, sinkers, swivels and lures to add to the supplies.  Also a couple of the deep ammo boxes from MTM.  Supposedly, fedex has my new IWB holster out for delivery today- its been on order since October, so I wont be suprised if Murphy intervenes again and it doesn't show.  That's what I get for not being Glock-ified I guess.

Exactly.  glockification is the root of all evil.  They do everything they can to draw you into the web of plastic.

If you need a second magazine, its time to call in air support.

God created Man, Col. Sam Colt made him equal, John Moses Browning turned equality to perfection, Gaston Glock turned perfection into plastic fantastic junk.

Looked for solar install quote (sufficient to amortize its cost by selling power back to the grid, yet independent enough with storage to run the well and refrigerators), cleaning a .22 bolt ejector spring and lubed all, trained dogs.
Will run a corn/malt wash tomorrow or the next day, weather/time permitting.

Picked up 1/4 of a steer and put in a order for 1/2 a steer for pick-up in September. Prime class.

Along with my neighbor, picked up pigs (3) for slaughter & butcher in Spring of 2022. Price is usually $80 to $90 per cut piglet. Today, $125-.

Working on the racking for the solar panels of our new solar system. Once the racking is done then I will start to put the seedling's that are now outside hardening on the porch, into the garden. My garden this year is focusing on basic vegetables like; green beans, rutabagas, pickling cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, etc and less on fru-fru growing's like French cantaloupes, lemon cucumbers, a variety of lettuce, etc. 

Had the diesel tank topped off.

Ordered 2, tri-axle of logs for firewood.

Bought a pro Husqvarna chainsaw to use with the new Alaskan Mill I purchased. By the way, the back-order time for the mill is now 7-weeks. 

Yet to be done but on the list, have our septic system pumped. I try to have it done every four years whether it is needed or not. I have just entered year five.

Looking into buying 50-gallons of lantern quality Kerosene for our lamps. Probably should look at our lamp spare parts inventory.

Reading into Say's Law. Where inflation is caused in part by turning around monies received by the sale of product immediately to make more product because the monies received is becoming less valuable by the minute. Some economists are using Say's Law to explain why inventory is down and inflation happening. Soon as people get cash (Paycheck or from the government) they are buying "stuff" before the money becomes less valuable. In other words...Inflation. 

I want to buy some more chicks as our older hens are passing on to the big perch in the sky. Need to do some additional research on how to introduce chicks to the flock so they are not bullied.

The list is growing smaller.  ;D I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, it is not the light of a oncoming train.  :dance:
