Tools and implements

An early morning outting.

   This morning I decided to change up my day off routine. Typically my morning would start off with a quick dash around farcebook then a few rounds of online gaming while perhaps doing a load of laundry. Thrilling isn’t it? Nope, today would be different!
   I did a few reposts (sorry that mobile app doesn’t allow shares to the community page yet) then jumped into the truck to grab breakfast. I neither sat and ate at the restaurant nor did I bring it back to the house, instead choosing to engage in a bit of people watching in a relaxed environment. There is a small park nearby so I pulled into a parking space facing the pond there.
   The pond has a paved path surrounding it and was being put to use by both walkers and runners this morning. You could see vehicles of all sorts wheeling in, their passengers donning their warm up gear preparing for the morning’s exertions. The majority of arrivals were women in running bras and shorts, shades on chatting with one another as though this were established routine. A young couple dashing to grab a fiberglass-hulled, wood-framed boat to put on the water.
   Most interesting in all of this was the events developing a few parking spaces away. A bald tattooed man who I would venture to guess to be in his late twenties stood holding a round shield and sword as if posing for a photo. He wore a scabbard upon his black clothing, right shirt sleeve opened at the shoulder to show one of his tattoos. A large earring glittered in the sun as it’s light shine through the swaying breeze dancing leaves of the trees lining the parking area. A conversation could be overheard between him and his similarly attired companion that gave way their intentions. Discussion ensued upon how fight scenes should not be comprised only mostly grappling. “Ah-ha”, I say to myself realizing role-playing was afoot.
   My breakfast being done I started my engine and began to depart. There was just one little thing that needed to be done before I left… ” Excuse me,” I called out to the gentleman preparing for their scene. “You might consider adding this to your arsenal, it matches with the theme quite well.”

“A little leather around the handle to hide the plastic makes this affordable tool a great addition.” I told them where it could be found and for how much to which they expressed their thanks and we parted ways.
   A little change can bring a lot to a day ey?

Even though we may like the convenience of plugging in that old saw and drill, there may be times when you find yourself striking out, and just having to accomplish one task or another. This article goes over items that are mostly for woodworking, without mentioning screwdrivers, wrenches, ratchets, etc. but contains items that will allow one to build what they need in order to survive naturally. Check out the Preparedness Advice Blog‘s article to view the list.
