too good to be true

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE-END IS NIGH

Before we start, yes, I know this isn’t really truly survivalist themed. Sue me. You know by now that once in awhile I veer from true form to pick at something else shiny that caught my eye. Or, just to talk about wonderful little me. Okay, so you know when something is too good to be true, you kind of tense up and start looking over your shoulder, paranoid that "the other shoe is going to drop" as it were. I did that when my child support ended. I was sure the world would end because after twenty years it sure seemed like I wasn’t allowed to enjoy the fruits of my own labor. And all that happened was two and a half years later I took a cut in hours and it didn’t hurt at all financially. Which is even MORE happy news that makes me paranoid. Then, I was pretty darn sure that once the second most wonderful fast food place on the west coast ( In-And-Out Burger is better, even after quality cuts, but they won’t get this far east ) arrived in town, that was a sure sign the end of the world was close. Well, all that happened was that Jack In The Crack reduced the quality of their food, so it turned out to not be so Too Good To Be True. Well, here is the third arriving Happy News that has me convinced The End Is Nigh So Gird Your Loins. I actually found a perfect gal.

Now, I don’t want to detract from Ex-Wife #4. Her and I were probably never meant to be and it isn’t anyone’s fault. I hope she found her happy place. But I know she wasn’t happy for near the last decade, and she made me not so happy as well. I should have had the fortitude to end it for her and spare both of us a lot of stress. That was My Bad. Now, New Future Ex-Wife and I have known each other for about a year. We got along rather well, friendly like. Nothing more. Then, about a month or two ago ( times flies as the end of your life approaches ), once I was 100% sure there was no taking back ex #4 as I had so many times in the past, we started flirting ( she did most of it, being a rather brazen hussy ). Now, a couple weeks of dating later, I feel pretty confident this is going to be a real relationship. We are both a lot alike, and we both are the polar opposites of each others ex-spouses. We even have the same number of ex’s if you discount my military shame marriage. I don’t plan of spending all my time with her in town ( I’m pretty confident she won’t crap in a bucket out here in the boonies until she has to, then won’t object terribly. I don’t mind a Townie girlfriend ), we are taking things slow still. But I might slow slightly on the writing for a time. Still five days a week, but minimal length of 500 words as in times past. And I don’t think I’ll have all that many dud articles. If they get too frequent, do speak up. Just make some allowances at first. I can’t stop writing, but my attention is diverted right now. Wish me luck, take this as a portent of collapse if you feel so inclined. It’s got me a bit worried.

    1. Let me know if I get too happy in tone and outlook, and I'll kick my own ass

    2. Is that a misspelling

      Did he mean CHERRY?

  2. OK, on your word alone I just spent $6200 on Trojan stocks.

  3. Swiftly approaching apocalypse noted. Bunker lock down initiated.

    Seriously...townie girlfriend is an okay thing, but,yet.......I still think you need to find one that would be willing to crap in a bucket and add some feminine touches to the Bison compound! Someone that has serious skills in food preps, desert gardening, food preservation, shooting, maybe a little livestock management. I know, hard to find, but they are out there!
    If you're lucky, maybe she'll have some hair styling skills as well! (In the Apocalypse, your hair will be your best deterrent against marauding gangs...)

    1. I don't want to sound too needy, but when a great opportunity presents itself, I'm not one to get too greedy ( rhymes, yo )

  4. You need the Wife Zone Chart :

    The conclusion (the "too good to be true" case) invites caution. ;)

  5. Sounds like she is a coworker, and while I have learned my lesson about getting poontang and a paycheck at the same place, I hope the best fer ya all. On the other hand, if she has a washer and dryer, it could make laundry day more interesting.

  6. Has she said anything about curtains yet. That's how it always starts; the curtains.

    1. I usually visit her, but when she visits me she stays enthralled at the vast stockpiles she "shops" at.

  7. Hey!

    Way to go Jim!

    Maybe they got a free (unused) room at the institution and you could both at least live in the same building.

    Sorry, but I HAD to say it before someone else did!

    1. It is only the outside walls that are high security. Inside, easy enough to sneak over to the women's section

  8. Good luck men are not meant to be single and happy. God gave man hormones to prevent it . On a serious note some couples do better with separate homes and congealcal visits . Had an uncle that had a girlfriend for 40 years said 2 houses kept them a happy couple.

    1. We'll stay separate only insofar as to keep independent, but we mesh well together

    2. Good advice from Gary. I was going to actually comment and say the same. Maintain a separate residence is for the best I think. And in case it isn't obvious by now, I'd refrain from marriage. 5th time isn't a charm James.

  9. Now I have the lyrics of the song, 'Bicycle Built for Two', going through my head.

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you
    It won't be a stylish marriage
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet
    Upon the seat
    Of a bicycle built for two

    1. This one is better off than me financially, and owns a car.

  10. Most people are "Better off than you Financially".
    Unless you count debt...

    Also, i thought the Bison Rule was to get rid of the car...
    The world is upside-down!

    You aren't about to sell the Steel (.303), to buy Plastic (Ay Arrgh), are you?

    The Apocalypse is nigh at hand! Every Bison Minion knows the balloon goes up the day after The Fair Haired One gives up and sells his Enfield...

    1. Don't worry, I don't count on her car. And I'd never count on a plastic carbine. All is well here, never fear

  11. If she is still interested even knowing your financial situation, I believe that's a good sign. Thats how I filtered my prospects after the #2 disaster. Does she complement your hair? Good luck!

  12. "Bison in love" would make a cool title for a movie !
    Happy for you, make sure she chan handle a Lee-Enfield !
    As for your articles I'm fed up with "consuming to invest", I need more variety in my Bison !

    1. I'm getting tired of ConInv myself. I have to finish it, however. Don't worry, getting loving is working on stimulating the first thought on original material in quite awhile. I'll condense the remaining material and finish the book soon, and I should start having more single issue articles than book articles every week. Should. Don't quote me. Cheers

  13. Be good for innovations and projects on the homestead. Much easier when it becomes the BOL and ya got another place to crash. She's probly got wheels too ta transfer more preps maybe ? That cistern project ?
    Nice to hear you getting some female company. Without my Dragon Lady, I'd be lost....

    1. Well, now I have another family to buy storage food for, so we'll use her car for that. But, a mini-SUV, so no Home Despot material transfer
