As of three this afternoon, I can't find any indication that things have gotten out of hand at Gettysburg. I sincerely hope it stays quiet through tomorrow. Solely because I don't want to see good, honest people have trouble with the law because they took action against the Shrillerites. The thugs in black don't care if they get arrested, it's a badge of honor with them. But middle class, working people are humiliated by being arrested and having hand cuffs put on them. It would be better if it didn't happen.
Why Antifa should stay clear of Gettysburg:
This video was made on the 150th anniversary of the battle. People who re-enact the Civil War do so for any number of reasons, but they don't tend to be sympathetic to the Shrillerites or their minions. I'm fairly certain that Antifa is not accustomed to screwing around with people like these, be they Southern or Northern re-enactors. The weapons, incidentally, bayonets, swords, pistols, rifles, and even cannon, are fully functional.
My brother was in a re-enactment group for many years. In fact, his group is in the movie "Dances with Wolves" and if you've seen it, the Confederate soldier crossing the corn field in the porkpie hat is my brother.
This is him "out of uniform."
This is my brother and his son.
But then the good guys would get arrested. Better if things just stay quiet.
Sunday routine today.
Brutally hot here today, supposed to hit 90 in the mountains and hotter in ATL. Humidity is way up. I got out there early this morning and spend two hours clearing my Jeep trail with a shovel and buckets, where mud and debris has been building up on it at washout spots. Then I carried the buckets up the slope to the buildings and used the debris to fill in wash outs up there. Two hours was all I could handle. I'm done in for the rest of the day.
I left the main supply room on the bottom level open this morning, and Percy got in there. He can go in between the stacked pails, so I will never get him out and it's his favorite place on earth, all dark and secret. I put some food and water down there, and some papers in a corner. When he gets lonely he'll come out and I can shut the door.
I'd like to go over to the lake at the park near the house and swim this afternoon, but the place will be completely full. After the fourth of July weekend, during the week days I can over after six and the beach is all mine. The water is perfect, and it's a nice way to end the day.
