My 6' ball of tin foil continues to grow. You know, for use during the apocalypse.

There's no doubt what wins the race to charge - lithium
The dogs cover the apocalypse intrusion. If not, we have other coverage. But that's a different subject.

Really, I just need to get the best out of my stuff. Everyone else wants the same. Back to the previous subject, when it comes to $5k to $13k expenditures I'd rather be dealing with zombies. At least I can get immediate results. With batteries I have to wait 5 or 10 years.
Just one word: 5G and chemtrails.

OK that's three words, but we conspiracy theorists don't connect linear reality when we have orthogonal ill-logic on our side.

Batteries are the whole-life annuities of the alternate energy world. Just write the check, kiss the money goodbye, and do everything you can to stay healthy and alive.

Dang, you can depress a guy, sigh. And a bad day it was - the dog killed our ol rooster that wakes us up before dawn. I hated that rooster, kind of. Life is so full of problems these days. There are other problems I hear....

So I've been given to understand. We're too far away so news travels slow. I hear social distancing is a thing. We're definitely going to observe it. Only problem is we'd have to up and move about 40 miles to get within range of the recommended safe distances.

Sounds serious though, our young friends from a couple farms away called all concerned and offered to do our grocery shopping for us. I get out of spending all day driving miss Daisy to the store? Silver linings my friend, look for silver linings. (As a bonus those silver linings cause edge effect and drive those aging PV panels like they're spring chickens.)

If your pup wants to come vacation in Hawaii he's more than welcome to come hang with our dogs. He can hunt down some wild chickens in the back acre. He can show our baby Catalahoua how it's done. My older pup couldn't be bothered. He'd rather lead all the local dogs in community improv theater.

No kidding - you've got a Cat pup? I have some input. Cool, wonderful dog. But can be the opposite. Hmm, just like children I suppose. I'll PM you with a personal email. I'd love to some pix of your flavor of Catahoula! They can vary so much.
