Reality check. What are you doing tomorrow? (Vanity)
vanity | October 19, 2012 | ConservativeInPa

Posted on 10/19/2012 8:31:32 PM PDT by ConservativeInPA

This is the season of politics and I follow things closely. You probably know what I mean. I am reading Drudge and FR constantly. I know the times when Rasmussen and Gallup polls come out and I press refresh for the results. But I make a point of doing regular things and living life.

This post is about what to do to keep things regular and normal. So what are you doing tomorrow to keep things normal?

In the morning, i am going to do a little reloading and then I am going shooting with my daughter, her friend and her friend's father. I am looking forward to this because you can never have too many outdoors friends. This will be the first time we go shooting together even though we belong to the same club.

In the afternoon, I am going to smoke some ribs and I will watch Penn State football in the evening. (I will also watch football throughout the day while smoking, but that can be interrupted. PSU football cannot)

Weird.. we must think alike because I have been thinking about the lack of normalcy in my own life. I spend too much time at the computer. Waste too much thought on politics.
Too combat this I bought a big jigsaw puzzle and put it on the dining room table. It’s hard to pass by without putting in a few pieces and it’s a bit addictive.

Watch my alma mater kick the sh*t out of Arizona, then head back to post-production here in Hollywood for some TV series for Cartoon Network for summer 2013. Then drink up later at some booze bar on Melrose.

Opps, I thought about planting bulbs yesterday. I think that will be a Sunday activity. It is the perfect time for planting bulbs right now. I will also be watching OSU tomorrow, probably with interruptions.

Grab my hunting buddy, launch the skiff, 10 mile run, deer hunt some muskeg flats. Had snow flurries coming back today after hunting with my son.

If the weather is too lousy for hunting or rather boating to the spot, will grab the battle rifle and 1911's and go to the range.

Unfortunately, smoking is nasty, filthy and disgusting and Pedo State should be bulldozed to the ground and then nuked from orbit just to be sure.

Pretty big (all things considered). I co-host a reoccurring show that runs all winter and there are a steady stream of festivals all over the state during the summer months that bring in the national acts.

That is a fantastic idea! I’m gonna steal it! :-)

Final class for the Citizen’s Academy put on by the local PD. We go to the gun range tomorrow. :-D If one is offered in your area, I would highly recommend it. It has been an educational blast!

Tomorrow I was going to inventory my pantry and check on our SHTF supplies.

I guess I’ll have to find something “normal” to do.

It's not full-up harsh PT.

Morning is stretch and groan kind of stuff, after lunch is road PT (no running, walk or bike, only 3 miles).

I'm not a spring chicken, and I've got parts missing.

Actually my son got this one yesterday with his .270. And it is a bit warm. That is why he is skinned. And getting chopped tomorrow. I can temp control the shed if it is cold. Usually it is much colder this time of year and we can let them hang for a few days in the shed before we skin them. I like to keep them at 35-37 degrees until they start to grow a bit of mold.

It is bow season here in Pa, but I do not partake due to warm weather and lack of facilities to care for the meat. It has only been going down to the high 30’s lately and only one hard freeze so far this year. My deer hunting starts after thanksgiving.

Your son shot a fine deer. You must be a proud father,

Getting up early to stain the horizontal bricks on the hearth and behind the wood-burning stove (we will actually need it tomorrow night). Then making breakfast for the family (big night tonight ... they will be hungry ... daughter’s first school dance and son was ballboy for the high school team). Then watch a replay of MIT’s football game (other son plays for them) ... I know the score ... have to keep it a secret from the younger son. Then finish staining the rest of the bricks and touchups (has to be finished in the afternoon). Then daugher cheers for son’s football game (playoffs), then she stays to cheer one more game. Then I make supper and fold laundry and get the fabric out for the throw pillows. I want them done before the puppy comes in 2.5 weeks. After supper, a good documentary.

I’ve been catching up on a lot of dvd’s I’d purchased. Lots of old tv-show fare, like “Gunsmoke,” “Untouchables,” “87th Precinct,” “The Gallant Men,” and whatnot. A lot of old westerns, too. Just watched a 1925-vintage silent b-western, in fact.

Finding time has been easy this election. I’ve hardly watched much news all year long. I’m just vastly less emotionally invested in this election than any previous one from the past three decades, despite my intense desire for Obama’s removal. Don’t particularly like our nominee, and have lost a ton of faith/respect/trust in the GOP in these past handful of years. No vigor or enthusiasm for the process, which now just seems more of a chore-like act of unplugging a stopped-up toilet. On the good side, having this kind of distance has indeed diminished the usual election-time angst, and seems to have freed up a lot of spare time.

I was too tired when I got home from work to do anything but put the hide in a garbage bag in the freezer. (He left it out on the lawn). It can be traded for a really nice pair of buckskin gloves. My son has a really nasty cold but his cousin talked him into going hunting out where my in-laws live yesterday. He got him at dark last night and came home this morning. He was asleep when I got here. I have some big canvas bags I use for game. And I didn’t bother to untie it to look at him. But if I had to guess live weight around 160. Really looking forward to fresh liver, and onions, for breakfast.
