Today went to a local retail establishment I frequent. It’s full of young kids going to college, some adults like myself, most all are the working poor. They think I’m Santa Claus. My bag of cosmetics and food were getting too much for my small house. It’s time to clean out the clutter. They were thrilled. Tons of good high end cosmetics for the ladies and juice and snacks for the kids. It all works out.
Tonight found several bottles of shower gel, perfume spray, flavored lotion, sponges for baths, a new toaster, a new electric razor, energy drinks, snacks, 12 pack of beer.
Yes a 12 pack of beer. I can’t for the life of me figure that one out. Well it’s all good. At least I’ll have alcohol in the house for company, it’s always good to have. I keep liquor in the house, wine, tequila, vodka, etc., when I have company over for a drink.
I’m going to start happy hour at my house. Instead of spending untold amounts of money to go to a bar, happy hour will be at my house for my neighbors. They can walk home and not have to worry about a DUI and we all get some good eats. I may do that for Halloween.
I think it’s very important to have a good sense of community and know your neighbors. You don’t have to be soul mates or best buddies, but some conviviality is a good idea. In case SHTF we have a network of like minded folks to work with.
