I spent the day yesterday at the house waiting for a delivery of linoleum that never came. I told the delivery company to take it straight to Home Depot and I’ll pick it up there. Even one night away from the woods is too much.
I took the weekend off. Friday I mowed my mother’s lawn. Saturday I just worked around the cabin, did some target practice, and explored the changing forest. Sunday I went to have lunch picked up from the Oakland twp fire hall with my mother.
Today was just for straightening up a little. Clean off the deck and porch. Refill the water jugs. Just basically enjoying the homestead.
I finished mounting the ceiling panels. I still have some trim and the access panel to do. I have placed some temporary panels over the place I will put a hinged access door.
But at least it is sealed well enough to keep the heat down low. Along with the insulated curtains it won’t take much of a fire in the little wood stove to keep it warm.
After balancing precariously on a ladder to extend a king pin for the cabins roof I slipped and twisted my shoulder. I don’ t think I’ll be finishing the ceiling today. Hey! It’s as good an excuse as any.
Any way later on I was sitting on the deck when I heard a hawk screech. It struck me how I have seen hawks and eagles flying many times but never heard them screech while I was looking at them. Then I thought of tv and movies. Every single time a hawk or eagle flies within the camera frame it screeches. I wonder why that is.
Decided today would be for working on the cabin ceiling. Since I started it before last winter I figured I better get it done before this winter. The cabin will stay warm much better with the ceiling lowered.
I started by cutting the bracing 2 x 4s to length with a 45 degree angle. It was then just a matter of wrestling the panels into place and screwing them in place. Then bracing the panels with the precut 2 x 4s. I got about half the ceiling done when the mail came.
I got my enhanced spring for my AR-15 in the mail. So I installed it and spent the rest of the day sighting it and my other guns in.
I’ll finish the ceiling tomorrow.
A beautiful, although chilly, day. I went to Home Depot and picked up the supplies I ordered yesterday. Then I stopped and had lunch with my mother.
The temperature was 51 this morning and topped out at 64. I can feel Autumn coming on.
This morning I woke thinking the sun had not yet risen. It was dark but with the glow of dawn. I checked the time. 7:30. The sun had been up for a while but the dark clouds made it look like twilight. In a few minutes the sky let loose. It then rained steady for 4 hours.
Around noon I decided to drive to the house in Titusville. I needed to measure the bathroom for remodeling and set off bug bombs to clear the areas I need to be crawling next week while working there.
I picked up the mail and left the trash.
Came back through Miller Farm in Oil Creek State Park. I let Lily run around the hiking trail. Many massive trees had recently blown over. It must have been the huge wind storm we had several weeks ago. None of the trees had broken. They all pulled up by the roots.
Back at the cabin I opened all the windows and set a fan going. I had also set off a bug bomb there before leaving. While the cabin aired out I took Lily for a walk.
I finished ordering what I need to remodel the house bathroom from Home Depot. I’ll pick it up curbside tomorrow.
My daughter is returning at the end of October to avoid the violence in Chicago the democrats are sure to step up after the election. Regardless of the results. The democrat party has supported this monster they let out, and the media has done a great job of covering it up and lying about it. They are about to find out there’s no putting the monster back in the cage.
From here on out I will be keeping this website as a daily journal instead of random posts about things on my mind. In fact there are many posts that I have made and decided to keep private so only I can see them. Remember. I’m a hermit. But from here on I will write dsily on every occurance of that day, as far as I can remember. This means some days will sound much like others, but it will get me in the habit of writing. I’m pretty much the only one reading anyway. I talk to myself, and my dog answers, so why not write to myself.

By the way, check out the show on YouTube. Until they are kicked off.
It’s a former SJW who now realizes it is a cult and a SF bay area anarcho-capitalist tech nerd who talk about events of the day. My daughter edits and moderates and sometimes co-hosts.
Warning: Not for the TDS infected. No mask required. There will be cake.
I saw someone working outside a little country store near the cabin. I stopped and asked the man if they required masks in their store.
He replied (I paraphrase again), “We have to have a sign but we cater to independent thinkers. There are plenty of stores for the sheep who just do as they’re told”.
My first thought was to jump in the air and maybe dance a little jig.
My second thought was this fellow didn’t look like a cowboy philosopher, but I’m sure glad he was.
So now I have a store with a little of everything I need. After this foolishness passes it will still be my main store.
And the Trump sign outside should keep the Karens out.
I will NOT go to stores or restaurants that force me to put a useless cloth on my face. I refuse to play dress up for the governor. The bright side is there are stores and restaurants that recognize peoples constitutional rights and do not force us to comply.
Unfortunately, there are “Karens” out there who aren’t happy just protecting themselves from the evil spirits floating around. They have to attack others who choose to be free and not comply and not regurgitate what their news channel and governor dictates. (as in dictator)
Because I don’t want to have to confront these busy-bodies I am now unable to go anywhere!!! And I am not happy about it. I hate being bullied.
If you believe the cloth on your face protects you, wear it! Why do you need to force it on others? Everyone who is terrified by the ridiculous charade is free to wear a mask and feel like they are protected.
My message to all the nosy “Karens” who “want to speak to the manager” out there is paraphrased from Jonathan Edwards.
“YOU CAN’T EVEN RUN YOUR OWN LIFE, I’LL BE DAMNED IF YOU’LL RUN MINE!!!”
