Let's just say that those that live here and are under my care are not really into the whole prepperism thing. Far from it really. Oh, sometimes Mrs. Bullseye will pick up a few extra things that are on sale at the store to add to our food storage program, mostly just to try to make me happy. It does help. But most of the time I am alone in my quest for independence and preparedness.
I enjoy living a frugal live style, they don't. While they are out shopping and eating out at restaurants I am here at home, turning off the lights they left on, the TV, the satellite box and God only knows what all else. Just trying to save a little here and there. They joke about the things I do, not really seeing that I am doing these things for them. When I come home from town they always jokingly ask if I got another case of tuna or Spam. They joke about my wood pile saying that it is a lumber yard and that I never seem to think I have enough. I clip coupons to use on items that we use regularly, that's funny too. I buy nearly everything by the case....funny. Always a smirk when the ask if I have my gas cans in the Jeep when I say I'm going to fill up.
It's a good thing I do these things and don't let them or their attitude get to me. It's hard at times but I march onward. Knowing that it won't be so funny in the near future, they will see why I have worked so hard to insure our future and our safety. I march on. Everyday looking for and thinking of new ways to prepare. They are like so many others out there that believe that the good times will last forever.....sorry to let them know that they never have. The Romans thought they would too and after 500 years they seen they were wrong. Our country is only half that age and we can see the end just over the horizon, or at least some can.
I do what I do for them, for us, for our future generations. It's not some kind of game that I play or just a hobby of mine. It's serious business and I know that. I have tried everything I know to do to show them the truth about our future but the world has them by the throat, choking any thought of the things to come right out of them. It's hard being a Lone Prepper but in the end I know it's worth it.
Keep on Prepping,
This is Bullseye... OUT !!!
