Something Fun

Last night I was the lead off speaker for a Preppers/Homesteader/Survivalist group that is in this area. I had a great time and I can't wait to go back for more.

It's really funny in a way, I worked a 65 hour week and didn't have time to prepare anything. Friday at lunch I scribbled down a few notes, but I was no where near ready for this crowd. I got home about an hour before the meeting and told the wife to sit down and see what you think, I needed to run through this at least once.
I got out the white board and set it up in the living room and started. About 15 minutes in I looked over my shoulder and the wife was playing on her phone, I had lost her. She grinned and told me to make it simple. Apparently I had way too many statistics for her liking. I didn't have time to redo the presentation so I just came to the conclusion I was going to have to wing it.

And wing it I did. It turned out great. The crowd of folks were great, everything was great. I had a blast.
The wife ended up opening her mouth and guess what, she is next months speaker on gardening. HA,HA,HA You should have seen her eyes when they asked her to do it, (Priceless)

    1. I agree Duke, as long as they are. I am finding out there are classes even in the like minded folks.
