2 Million Views and Another reason to Vote forTrump
Sometime today the view counter clicked over 2 million views. I would say that's fairly respectable in the homesteading and prepping genre of the blog-sphere. I am happy with it and I only had to post the scantily clad tractor operators very rarely too. Honestly I saw the 2 mil mark coming back a few weeks ago and seriously thought about retiring the blog when it reached that point but I am still on the fence (haha) about it right now.
Besides if I am still doing a post after the horrible day I just had it must be hardwired into my brain or something. Not to go into all the details but let's just say not much of anything actually went right for me today. I had to work about two hours longer than I was suppose to. I rushed home because I finally had a complete load of scrap metal to take to the recycling place because of what I cleaned out of the old falling down fence row. I loaded it all up on my truck and small trailer, strapped it down and headed for the nearest (and only) recycling place I know of which is about 8 miles away. I was kinda excited because I been wanting to get rid of some of the old scrap I had laying around for a while but never had enough to make a good load until now.
I pulled up to the place and it was gone. Oh the buildings were still there but the gate was closed, all the equipment was gone. I guess they closed down and moved out.
Well damn....Now what?
I also had to back the truck and small trailer (which I couldn't see until it was off course) about 300 yards to a spot I could turn around at. Good times let me tell ya.
Now I got all this scrap loaded on the truck and trailer and no clue where to take it to get rid of it. I really don't care about getting money for it, what with scrap prices the way they are it would barely pay for gas at this point. I just want to get rid of it.
Not really sure what to do with it right now.
When I got back home I found an unexpected bill for $166.00 waiting for me in the mail box and a rotting deer head the dogs dragged up into the yard from the Lord only knows where. A nice 8 point rack was on it though. Then as I was tagging the last two lambs of the season to let them out with the general population one of them peed all over me.
At this point I am just ready for bed so this day will be over.
However I did read about Trumps newly published ideas on dealing with student loans, higher education and such this evening. It's some pretty good stuff actually.
I know some of you are not impressed with Trump but like I pointed out months ago he was the only candidate that really had any clue where to strike to turn some of this crap around. As I have said many times. I would vote for Mickey Mouse right now if he promised to fight back against feminism and the Political correctness monster we are being devoured by. The only thing Trump could do to turn me away from him would be start talking about gun control and I doubt he will go that way. I don't care if he keeps spending money as long as he doesn't spend it the way it has been spent the last 50+ years.
Anyway Judgybitch has a good write up on Trumps proposed policy.
I especially like the part where he proposes to take government out of the student loan business.
Anyway I am off to sleep this terrible day away. Hopefully tomorrow will be better but I will be at work all day regardless.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
