November American Survival Guide on the newstand.
This month has some good articles. The story on group psychology in stressful situations was interesting. I'm not sure I am very enthusiastic about them telling how to pick a padlock, as I use a lot of padlocks, but since the magazine isn't published in Spanish I probably don't have anything to worry about here.
One of my dogs has a big hunk bitten out of her tail. I cleaned it up and used veterinarians "wound spray" from the Farmers Depot on her. I use it on myself and it works pretty well on cuts, so I'm hoping it will keep out infection and help her heal up. I have no idea what got a hold of her but something did. I'm glad she's had her rabies shots, even though there haven't been any rabid animals here in ages, that's always a concern out in the woods.
Leaves are falling pretty fast now, and the acorns are all over the ground. I hope the bears are stuffing for their winters hibernation, and I hope they are staying out in the woods and not coming around my place. There was a big pile of "pooh" out behind my barn this morning that looked suspiciously like bear scat, even if it didn't smell like bear spray or have any little bells in it.
