Finally, a cold front has come through. Things are drying out, and the temperatures are backdown in the 70's. M and I are staying home today. We have a big stew cooking in the crock pot, and there's nothing we have to do so we are just taking it easy.
I really enjoy this catalog. It's free, and it's full of good things that might come in handy. They don't sell "top of the line" things, they are more oriented towards "good enough" , so their products are less costly. For instance, the scanner on the front page is excellent, Uniden makes them right, and it's not that expensive. The catalog had some good items I wanted, so I went ahead and placed an order. None of it is particularly expensive, just things like water proof matches and a few other items that caught my eye.
The new BudK catalog came too. They are the same company as the one above, just different names for different catalogs oriented towards slightly different products, as far as I can tell.
I notice some of the "standard" knives that BudK sells a lot of have gone up a bit. Everything else is , so I am not surprised. Years ago I bought a good many of these "standard" knives as barter items, and they are still out there in the barn, waiting for the day I need them. They aren't fancy but they are sturdy. Got to have something to trade for vegetables since I am not particularly successful with my own garden.
I was over at Six Bears, and one of his visitors mentioned this book. I'd never heard of it. I'm one of those people who likes the desert, especially the Southwest. I doubt I will ever end up there at this stage of my life, but I ordered this anyway. Something the author thought up for the desert might work for me here in the forest, and it looks like good reading.
A good surplus outfit:
Omaha's Surplus was recommended to me. I bought some corrosive bore cleaner from them, and was very happy with the condition of the cans and the product overall. I ordered two, but they sent me three. I called them and wanted to pay for the third can, but they said no, that they sent it as a "freebie." They wouldn't let me pay.
I appreciate that kind of treatment. They must be native Texans.
I wanted to let other people know about them, as they seem to have a lot of good gear to offer.
Normally, I think "sexual harassment" is mostly nonsense, but I was glad to see a big Democratic donor come to grief, and I was also delighted to see all his Demi friends scatter like cockroaches when the light comes on in a Moon Bat kitchen.
