PRIVATION AND TOWNIES
Today’s burning question is, can you "go back" to privation after you’ve wallowed in the vast cesspool of luxurious Yuppie Scum-ness? I didn’t just pull this out of my butt, as I’ve recently decided to move back to town. As you all know, I finally pulled my head out of my ass and jumped back into the dating pool and to my astonishment and delight found a worthy companion. And having made such a discovery, the first in thirty years, I’m certainly not going to queer the deal by insisting an old women ( eight years my senior, but pretty easy on the eyes for her advanced age ) drop a perfectly good home-almost paid for- and move out to the homestead and crap in a bucket. At first we were living in our own homes with visits overnight about half the week once we started bumping uglies, but as one thing will lead to another the honeymoon phase devolved into a permanent-ish living arrangement. I’ve moved in and started paying rent. Not that I have to, we are both financially independent, but because I can’t see living off of a women ( male chauvinist pig that I am ). And it won’t be forever-five years the sucker is paid off with my rent going to the mortgage. Then I just have to contribute nominal expenses. This assumes the ass doesn’t fall out of the economy prior, which I plan on happening. In short, I might appear to be "going townie" and giving up on off grid living, but I see it as a short term situation at best.
I haven’t giving up much bike riding, either. I ride out round trip several times a week to keep an eye on the place ( and have moved some high value items into town, so that makes things actually more secure than they were for the six months after the last ex-wife left and the place was unattended during work hours. Now they go that way around the clock, but theft is now less of a concern. Vandalism perhaps more so, but I now have neighbors moved in close on two sides and I don’t worry too much. So far, the damnable canines run amok have caused all damage not wind related ), plus go the very long way around to work, so I’m still riding forty miles a week verses the old sixty. The ideal situation would be for the girlfriend to move out to my place, but except for dumbass Yuppie Preppers who think they have all the time in the world to prep, and furthermore only the disaster they wish for will occur, the ideal circumstance never happens as we all know. You just make do and improvise. I’ve covered logistics and security with my move, but the question remains. Will I get soft and lazy by moving into town? Or will my long experience prove corruption proof? More in the next article.
