I went on a small shopping spree, over the internet. Nothing too expensive, I don’t have an abundance of discretionary funds but we are OK at the moment.
Red flags were raised, I’m sure.
Playing a little catch up.
The Red Flags probably come not from any individual purchase, it’s the Search History and the conglomerate of items purchased if I had to bet.
As we are all intensely aware, Big Brother see’s all when you are on the net.
I had a conversation with The Wifely Unit this morning and pretty much laid out what is going on, not that she is completely uninformed or anything but I have access to information she doesn’t.
She has been following along with the recent goings on and actually surprised me a couple of times with actual informed opinions.
So then I laid some news on her that she didn’t have any idea about because she pretty much relies on Fox News and guys like Tucker Carlson and shit for her info.
The things I knew about came from …. ahem… other sources. Ones that she doesn’t have access to and that no News outlet would publish anyway.
So it was a good conversation. She has finally seen the light so to speak and we finally came to an agreement that with only 3 months left before the election and God only knows what comes after, that maybe getting some things and putting them away might not be a bad idea after all.
This other news I refer too has to do with the local BLM assholes branching out not only in our county but the one North of us that is very rural and them deciding to harass a couple of little out of the way towns that most people don’t even know exist.
Enough is enough. Their Home Base around here is literally only a twenty minute drive from here on a good traffic day.
Some of the things that are on the way are of a more personal defense item.
I’m sure you know that from my last post. I just added a few more things to go along with that.
Towards the end of our little conversation I flat out told her that my first responsibility is her and our kids safety.
End of transmission.
I may be slow but I’m not completely stupid. Things that are on the To Do list, FINALLY, are more long term in case access to grocery stores become limited items.
This has been a burr under my saddle for years now.
She is still resistant to a whole bunch of it but Dry Goods finally got the OK.
It’s a start.
It’s kind of sad that it took things going completely fucking sideways for the light to come on but it did at long last. It ain’t shining very brightly but it is on.
I can work with that.
