|Walmart Ammo can. $12.98 plus tax|
Raining and cold here. That's ok, at least it's weather appropriate for the time of year.
We launched out of here early today. M had a doctors appointment at 0800, which meant we had to be up by 0600 and on the road by 0700. (46 miles to Dr. office)
Then, we tried to find a nice place for breakfast in that town, but failed utterly, wound up at McDonalds. For $12.00 I had a steak and onion bagel that was burned, and she had a ham and egg bagel that wasn't cooked well enough. But as I told her, it's McDonalds. You only eat there if you have no choice.
Then we went to Murphy, N.C. (29 miles away), to go to Walmart. I desperately needed another .50 cal ammo can for some very special ammo, but our Walmart was out this week. When I got to Murphy, they didn't have any ammo cans either, but my wife found an Indian blanket she liked so it wasn't a total waste. Also, there are two women's clothing stores she likes in Murphy, so we had to go to those. Remember, I bought that Kindle that cost $200.00 last week, well......
Before anyone sends me a gift subscription to this magazine, let me explain. I considered the Kindle as a nice to have item. Because I can't read my magazines on the 7 inch Kindle anymore. So naturally, that is an elective purchase on my behalf.
SO, it had to come out of the unallocated funds part of the budget that we split.
SO, having told my wife I bought the thing, in keeping with our rule that we don't hide things from each other, she felt some clothing purchases were essential on her side of the ledger.
She feels it imperative to be well dressed when we go out in town. For me, of course, so I will be proud of her.....
I know her appearance is important to her. I think she considers me to be a fashion accessory. So much so, that sometimes I have to go change my clothes before I go into town, and put on clothes she gets out for me. She's very considerate that way.
We did not always have this rule. Thank God, or I would not have the gun collection I do now. Not that I hid gun purchases over our married life. I just didn't tell her about them. She wouldn't have been interested, she isn't a gun person. So when I bought new guns, I just brought them into the house and quietly put them away. When she wasn't around.
But when we both retired, we were right there together all the time, and to avoid any misunderstandings, we both share whatever we are doing, so "off the books" purchases don't fly anymore..... So see, it's all copacetic and I don't need a subscription to "Whipped."

JUST A FEW QUESTIONS & THOUGHTS…
1- Since only 8 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will 16 million people be randomly shot?
2- If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?
3- If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?
4- If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?
5- Each ISIS attack now is a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama's term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs?????
6- After the London 'Lone Wolf' terrorist attack government officials have arrested at least eight other 'Lone Wolves' who had conspired with the original 'Lone Wolf' in planning the 'Lone Wolf' attack. Even though all involved are Muslims, you can be assured, the 'Lone Wolf; attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1000 plus 'Lone Wolf' attacks by Muslims, are completely unassociated with Islam?????
7- We should stop calling them all 'Entitlements'.
Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, are not entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts, and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
8- If Muslims want to run away from a Muslim country, does that mean they're Islamophobic?
9- If Liberals don't believe in biological gender then why did they march for women's rights?
10- How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?
11- Why is it that Democrats think Superdelegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College?
12- If you don't want the FBI involved in elections, don't nominate someone who's being investigated by the FBI.
13- If Hillary's speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free ones?
14- The DNC is mad at Russia because they 'think' they Russia is trying to manipulate our election by exposing that the DNC is manipulating our election?
15- Why is it that Liberals and the Media are upset about the words Trump used 11 years ago but they are alright with Adult men using the Ladies Room with your Wives and Daughters?
