I like this movie and I loved the book. I don’t think I’ve read anything else by the author. I enjoy the twist on historical characters. Some of my favorite actors have parts in the movie.
I just read up on William Henry Johnson who was portrayed by Anthony Mackie in the movie. He was Lincoln’s friend, aide and one time bodyguard. Interesting real history. (The link is to a Wikipedia page. I’m not big on Wikipedia but that was the mist readily available information.)
We’re under a watch for another round if ice storms tomorrow. Today I met up with the biss to knock out one store after I’d worked my first.
Then I continued on to the next.
Each and every store today had one thing in common.
I don’t know why you’d need five loaves of bread for a snow day, but okay. I know some are buying up bread because they except to resell it to others for profit. I think that’s worse than the fear. They are taking advantage of others’ fear.
I know a lot of us aren’t afraid. We’ve walked through the last two years of fifteen days just fine—a little madder, a little wiser. We’ve most definitely had some of our misgivings proven to be true.
The disappointment we have in the people around us is unreal. I never thought I would be this disgusted with a large part of my countries population.
You know the ones, the ones that want to force you to do something you don’t want to do for the greater good. The ones who hide who they truly are, literally and figuratively.
I got up at 0600. If you’re former military, don’t start. I know, sleeping in like the Air Force. I’ll take it. I’m old and a civilian now.
I could have slept later because I wasn’t leaving until sunrise. I didn’t want to risk black ice this morning, and who knew what shape the roads were in? Turns out it wasn’t all that bad.
I passed some spots where a few trees had fallen across the road, but it looked like either the county or a local had already gone through with a chainsaw. Whoever it was good on them. We are literally all in this together out here on the edge of the county.
Yeah, the electric companies rocked it yesterday. I know there were several in-state to help out. I appreciate them doing an already dangerous job in conditions that make it that much worse.
The shop rework is coming along. I did a little something today when I got home.
I watch a lot of YouTube and other channels for instructional videos on a wide variety of things. Being able to cast to a large screen will be a plus.
Besides the fact that the TV was just sitting unused.
Adding to all of this that today went well at work. Everything fell into place just as it should. Here’s hoping tomorrow will go as smoothly.
