Went down to Whitehall to put a clutch in a John Deere G, and pick up half a hog from Falls Meat Market. Owner of the meat market talked to me about 20 minutes about hunting, the election, how busy he was and how long since he had a day off. No mention of OC 226, which is hard to miss.

Went to Whitehall to put clutch in at Harvest Home Farms, a Christian organization we support. They were having a board meeting and I was invited to lunch. Hog came from here. 3 board members, from Rib Lake, Minnesota and somewhere else in WI. I asked owner if he cared if I carried in his house, he knows, and said no problem. Wi guys were gun people, MN guy never owned one but was not anti. Had a nice lunch and talked some about guns, the election, WI school district administrators, and the election.

Headed home, stopped at Kwik Trip in Osseo for gas. Held the door for a woman going in. She said, "It makes me REALLY happy to see you CONCEALED CARRYING, it makes me feel safe."

I said thanks, but I am OPEN CARRYING, if I was concealed it would be hidden. We talked for about two minutes, I think she felt kind of silly about it, but no big deal was made. Used bathroom, came
Out behind a guy who was walking real slow down the aisle, kind of dawdling with no intent. I'm a fast walker and hate being behind plodders. Got to the end of the aisle and the same woman yells at him, GET OUTTA THE MANS WAY!!! Said have a good day and left.

My wife would have gotten an earful if she talked to me like that in public. Otherwise, a good day except I didn't get anything done at home.

Even better, take your problems with you and leave them somewhere else!! ��

We just put a metal roof on our house, so I have some trash to pick up, leaves to rake, two guns to clean from LAST Saturday, and and a desk that is a mess! Plus, dog walking
And watching the Packers get creamed!
