    Put an Eotec on one M1A today and co-witnessed to the irons @ 100 yds.

    Loaded another 6 P-mags, re-greased the 34.

    Started cutting and splitting next years firewood.
    That which doesn't kill me had better start running.

    Finished digging the last of 5 holes for the column footings for my gun range project. I’m quite sore but glad to have that done. Rain forecast for this Friday so I plan on pouring one footing with concrete each night after work. After it rains, it will be too muddy to access the site until I do some roadwork next year.

    More garden work. I emptied one of my potato towers of soil. It was full of willow roots, right up to the top. They're made of 2x6s and stacked four high, so that was a lot of willow roots. Then I spread the soil from the tower on one of the 4x12 raised beds. One more potato tower and raised bed to go. Then I just have to rake up the debris between the beds and I'll be done until spring.

    It's a shame, but the willow trees have to go. I just don't have the energy to dig the beds out spring and fall, and the vegetables can't compete with the willows.

    It almost makes me feel like crying just to think about it.

    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!!!
    That was a nice thing to do!! What was the reason one crew would not take them? Covid? I am 100% Team Green Original also!!!

    They said that the power company provided them all the drinks they needed but thanked us. They seemed pretty bone-assed tired and I suspect they just wanted to finish their job and go home.

    Not a big deal but my plastic spigot on my Crown Berkey is pretty old and I've detected a very small and very occasional drip. Just purchased a stainless steel replacement on Amazon. Should be here in a day or two.
