Alpine run for supplies...30% chance of an isolated thunderstorm tomorrow afternoon and evening... Johnson Feed for "you know who", McCoys for downspout supplies, True Value for ammo and a holster, Thriftway for groceries, and a final stop to visit my friend Suzi at The Cheshire Cat ( Hyw 90 E. just across from Stripes). Got home at 3:30 and cleaned out the new fridge and reloaded it with grub.
Swung over to visit the Mt. McKennites to see their new 40' shipping container that got dropped off yesterday. Our new friend Kevin was on hand to start cutting out some parts for their new house. Tim got a chance to do half the torching and I caught him adjusting his flame. By the way...I purchased a new side arm today - Smith & Wesson M&P 40. 83,98,49,0,W
