Picked up 50 unit dose cartridges of 2% Xylocaine with Epi (dental) 20mg/1.7ml. I have a type C aspirating dental syringe. What is nice about the cartridges is that you can aspirate the Xylocaine out of the cartridge into a regular syringe and use it to suture dermal and sub q tissue as well as a local for extracting an abscessed tooth. Also added 25 30g 25mm needles.

The Epi is 1:100,000 so the added dermal bleeding control will be nil in a dermal setting, but in a pinch it'll do.

I think it will be a neat add on to the 6% lidocaine topical gel.

I have not really done any active prepping lately because I am trying to buy property in NV for my retirement. Although the property I am in the process of buying right now is not ideal for a bol, it is a better situation than I'm in now. But once established on my new property I will be concentrating on learning how to can foods. But my underground bunker complex will have to wait a while, lol.

Bottled 8 liters of water. Started cleaning a spot in my garage for my reloading equipment. Got a free 6x8 greenhouse and set it up. Had a good day!

Drove 31 miles each way to go pick up my new LC9 Rugar.
Went to local PD here in my city to turn in paperwork
Hit the sale at Dunhams and got 4 boxes of 50 each box of Reminton Ammo. was on sale 11.99 box of 50. Guy in front of me was bragging he got big box of same ammo 250 count for $65. Duh- 5 boxes of the one I got would have only been $55 and was same ammo, tried to tell him but he bought it anyway.
Went to $1 store and got coffee filters, 4 large cans pears. 1 jar applesauce (all they had) 3 tubes toothpast replacement in storage and 3 boxes dishwasher detergent. The Sun brand at $1 tree is great, no spots or film etc.

Stocked up and packaged cornmeal, also picked up more rice, and some beans. added some canned meats to inventory, made more firestarters. Gto a good deal on laundry detergent for 1.99 per bottle (big bottle), so also grabbed 5 bottles, and added more stock to my toilet paper.

Moved my turkey poults from the ground coop to a pen. Next step for them is free range. Moved ducklings from wire bottom coop to ground coop. Then saw my one Danish Brown Leghorn hen had hatched a hand full of biddies in the brush. Have to wonder how many she had before the 8 plus inches of rain we had Saturday night/Sunday morning. But she added to the flock of 100 some odd so she is doing her part in prepping too.

I would have returned it to them instead of hoping they missed something and jumping on it. But that is just me.

Bought a Mossberg 20 ga. 'youth' shotgun the other day--it 'fits' me better than the adult-sized. Nice nice NICE shotgun. Today I bought some more ammo for my little. .380, and stocked up on more canned and dry foods. Put a daybed in the front room for my sister last week and am starting to use the space underneath to store cases of canned goods & etc., mostly because one of my dogs started going underneath the bed (it sits a little higher than normal bed height) and scrubbing his back on the springs and now his back is scraped up. Have to keep him out from under there and the best way to do that is to fill the space up with cases of canned stuff.

Put a dust ruffle on it to hide the cases, pretties up the bed, hides underneath it, and easy to make if you can't find one easily.
