    I was quite surprised over the week-end when wife came up to me and
    said " We are in good shape to handle this thing, thank you!" Took over 20 years to hear that
    from her but it felt good!

    A fair and decent depiction, I'd say. They did well, and hopefully people will start considering preparedness as normal, they way it used to be.
    This crazy bug has got me wishing I had took prepping more serious. kick kick.

    Don't recall who or even which forum, . . . but 3 or 4 weeks ago, . . . prepping was mentioned, . . . and the subject of toilet paper came up.

    We have some extra, . . . but I had never thought it thru, . . . I did that day, . . . next time we hit the grocery, . . . grabbed about 15 or 16 spare rolls. My wife rolled her eyes at me, . . . not sure she even wanted to be seen with me with all that TP and two extra batches of paper towels.

    In the kitchen this AM, . . . I got a "kind of" apology, . . . she's on my prepping side now, . . . and probably forever.

    May God bless,

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    I can barely walk.
    Glad we were already ready.

    Speaking of which, you never know when your own SHTF situation occurs.
    I'm sorry to hear about your back. I'll be praying for you.

    @Denton . Sorry to hear about your back. I know it’s painful from personal experience. And it couldn’t happen at a worst time. Take care!

    I use the same technique to deal with people like that.

    Went to the store yesterday and bought some cinnamon rolls and 1/2lb of turkey and 1/2 lb of ham cold cuts for lunch. The people waiting in line with packed carts looked at me like as was stupid. One finally asked me if I had done all of my shopping the day before, and if so, didn’t I want to stock up some more? I said no and that I was good. That was a mistake. I should have ignored them.

    My Dad called me yesterday and said who is crazy now? Certainly not you, he said, as he proceeded to tell me of his great quest to find TP on Sunday. At the 5th store he was able to purchase one 12 roll package.

    I have been trying to persuade my wife for years on prepping. She rolls her eyes and then we get into an argument. I think she is starting to see the light,

    She has been asking me about drilling a well and putting up solar panels. If this think get backs to normal, I believe we be getting more serious.
