Good fences make good neighbors, but in my case they make great bartering opportunities. Mrs. RW is now the proud owner of a like-new Marlin .30/.30 that was obtained by doing some fence work out on a fellow’s property just outside of town.
It didn’t come with a scope but the wife’s eyesight is still pretty good as far as long distances go and can get by without one until a bargain can be found somewhere. If somebody gets too close to her she can always sick a member of our security team (our two black Labs) on them or just whack ‘em up side the head with the barrel if necessary. Her first comment when I showed it to her was “We’re gonna need it!”
Now that she has one of her own, my Marlin .30/.30 will be safe from her wanting to use it instead of the single shot 12 gauge. My Mossberg 500A shotgun is mainly for my use. I really love that shotgun.
So today (payday for Mrs. RW) she gave me instructions to pull some extra cash & coin from the bank for the up and coming banking holiday. She said these bailouts are getting to be a regular weekend thing! You would think they could remember that when you find yourself in a hole, you need to stop digging! Apparently, all the politicians apparently have on their mind is how to save their “banking buddies” and they’ve got the backhoe working overtime on this one trying to dig themselves out of what’s turning into a black hole which is going to suck the whole world into it.
Mrs. RW also said she’s going to the store and stock up on some more groceries after she gets off work. We haven’t done any serious stocking up for a couple of months now and even though we have plenty for another 8 or 10 months, it looks like that may be cutting it a little close if this current financial crisis continues at the pace it’s going.
The Mosin-Nagant purchase will have to wait for a while as some extra 12 gauge and .30/30 ammo (buying for 2 guns now) is going to be necessary. The big city news media is already talking about the upsurge in crime and if money gets really tight it’s not going to get any better. I’m seriously considering it might be time to drag out the extra rolls of barb wire and getting ready to string some around the place if it gets too bad!
Got cash? Better get LOTS more!
Got guns? One or two more are probably in order right about now!
Got ammo? Now seems like a good time to stock up!
Got food? Don't wait till you get hungry!
Staying above the water line!
Merry Christmas to Everyone
