The virus has brought this out, but I have seen it so much. Before she got married my oldest daughter did not bother to learn how to cook to any extent, she claimed restaurants were cheap enough. After she got on the usual marital budget we would get a call most nights, mostly starting out with MOM how do I make this? Her and her husband live close by now and they have a freezer gull of venison and other stuff and he makes his own venison sausage and cuts his own meat. I have cut my own deer for years. 14 days of quarantine would not be all that restrictive. I mean I have two daughters who would shop for the stuff that doe not keep like dairy goods and some foods. I mean they could leave it off at the door step and we could get it. Even if we were not given that type of food we would survive.
Getting by. When 22 shells were nonexistent I had a 32-20 and other bullet molds and handloading equipment. Heck I load shotgun shells and if not shot with a 22 I could use a shotgun. Even have a supply of black powder and a 25 muzzle loader. We had a shortage of ammo one year where 30-30 and 35 Remington were just not on shelves. Handloaded them.
Cut firewood and make a lot of my own things. Wife has a garden and we freeze vegetables. Showed my makeshift gun carriers for my tractor and 4 wheeler, some laughed but they work.
IMG_0073.jpgDeer stand made out of a lot of scrap lumber and cut the posts. They are selling some pretty nice deer blinds and stand systems for quite a chunk of change now. I can make a pretty nice set up for less than $200. Seen $500 price tags on just the blind. Used to make a lot of tree stands and made ground blinds out of the stuff around me. Carried some twine and made my X sticks to shoot from. Changed a lot of oil, replace a few brake pads and so forth. Reading White Clouds comments hit home. When I was a city administrator I did not live in the city. Could not stand to live under the situations I had to deal with. Neighbors in P----g matches with each other, ordinances over grass length, etc. I now live out int he country on a back road and just enjoy the solitude.
We have one of these ... just have to hook it up.

Fungicide is used to increase the germination rate of many seeds. Sometimes they're colored pink, but you can't be sure unless you check the label.

Mr. Rooney had a keen mind along with a bent one ... he saw and extracted things most all of us would never see or perceive.

So does anyone think there's going to be a run on cloth diapers anytime soon
