It's a nice, quiet Sunday on the mountain.
Both issues came out about the same time. American Survival Guide has adopted the larger, slicker format of Off Grid, and even more, it came in a plastic cover this time, instead of getting all beat up the mail.
Neither issue really had a lot that I could use , but there were some interesting articles. Even when there's nothing that is directly applicable to my own situation, I always enjoy the magazines. My daughter shares my interest in self sufficiency, and I gave her a Kindle Fire 10 for Christmas, so now she can read them up there.
I got my Choate butt pads, but they were for the actual MAK 90 stock, not the Choate stock that I need them for. I realize now that when I placed my order, I asked for the MAK 90 butt pad, meaning the Choate Mak 90 stock, but that's not what I said. It would be tacky to send them back since it was my mistake, so I'll keep them. I still have both MAK 90 wooden stocks, who knows, I may need them some day. I'll give Choate a call tomorrow and clear this up, then place an order for the one's I need.
Here's what I inadvertently ordered,
but here's what I needed.
In the "Ah, well." category.
The Flu continues to ravish Georgia.
The flu is really burning through Georgia. We went to an adjacent county yesterday to do some shopping, and lots of people were wandering around in those little masks that cover your mouth and your nose. They didn't work in the 1918 epidemic, but maybe the masks are better today. When we got back here, there were people wearing them in the Walmart. Never seen that before. However, the Atlanta news is really hyping it up, talking about all the young people and middle aged people in good health who had died.
All's well here, right now anyway.
