Stopped at the local thrift store this morning on the hunt for bargains.
Found boxes of 200 single-use alcohol prep pads for $6. I snagged 4 boxes... more than I'll use in what's left of my lifetime.
They'll get added to all my IFAKs. Around the house, in the vehicles, camping kits, backpacks, BOB, GHBs, BTNs.....
I'm making tomato sauce. My tomato harvest wasn't huge, but I'll get a few pints out of it. I don't stick to paste-type tomatoes,when I make sauce. This year's is a mix of Super Sweet 100s cherry tomatoes, Heirloom Marriage Marzinera, Montesino, San Marzano, Cherokee Purple, and Ananas Noire. It takes longer to reduce this down to a thick sauce consistency, but the depth of flavors I get from the mix to tomatoes, plus the carmelization resulting from the longer cooking time is incredible.
I cook all the tomatoes down, run the cooled, thin sauce through the food mill several times, then put it back on the stove to reduce down to my desired consistency. Then can it.
Got quite a few chuck roast beef (on sale today), and shanks (I hardly see these babies anymore).
More US-made products that we normally use. IAMs cat food too.
I met a new gun owner this morning and I took him to the range for some basic instruction and practice. He bought a 9mm but I furnished a 22 for starters. After maybe 100 rounds of 22 we moved up to his 9. He did very well for a newbie. He’s hooked! We all had a good time and now we have a new convert.
At TSC, I replenished the LP Gas that I burned over the past few days and then studied my Electrical Panel and made some notes on what parts of my house I will run when I get a Transfer Switch installed. emailed my electrician and hope to set something up with him over the next week or so!
For some of you folk, electrical work comes easy or you've been trained. Me, I have a huge gap in knowledge when it comes to electrical.
Also, me and Mrs Slippy went to Dollar General and bought up a bunch of cold Gatorades and drove around handing them out to Electrical Lineman from Alabama Power who were nearby Slippy Lodge working on the lines. Only 1 Crew would not take them, the others were very appreciative and we thanked every one of them for the job they do!
Funny thing, most of the Lineman we saw this am prefer the Red and Blue Gatorade! What's up with that? Me? I'm 100% the Green Original Gatorade!!!
