I got forty four (44) resin shelving units from Menard's friday afternoon on sale for $28.75 each after rebates and sale prices and taxes.
Not a steal of a deal but a good deal.
$20 each would be a steal.
So I'm stuck about $400 max.
Well worth it and a wise investment.
Me and my shelves.
$1,275 hard cash worth.
As you can see I am a rich man.
No pauper me.
I own everything.
About $675 a month Social Security.
Me and my Social Security check from now on.
Maybe a little eBay sales and Craigslist.
Make a little grocery money and gas money.
Some money for my kids.
I am finally going to be able to unclutter my home and sheds and grounds for the first time in about fifteen or twenty years.
I have never been a packrat or hoarder, although I might have looked like one at times to the unknowing eye.
I'm not your conventional dog, I admit to that.
I mean who would put twenty two shelving units in their house and have an outhouse and no running water and be proud of it.
I love it!
Everything piled on top of each other is shit.
People with lots of money and space don't have this problem.
Mine has been in a small trailer in a trailer court for twenty years and now my own land and a bigger but still small trailer house on my land and a few sheds and fenced area.
I love it.
Now my shelves are going to take everything over the top.
I love not having running water to worry about, or the heat bill that goes with it.
About five billion people do not have running water.
None of this is visible from the outside but from the inside it makes a world of difference.
I can get at everything and have plenty of work space to do my projects in.
Filming and editing and my music stuff.
My home and land are my studio.
Creating The Bunnell Farm and bringing this forward and enjoying life and improving my health at the same time and taking care of my grandkids.
I am on cloud nine.
Dad would be proud.
He was proud of me.
Right to the end and it wasn't always easy.
We had great respect for one another.
A wonderful man.
May he rest in peace.
