Interesting questions. No, I don't own a gun. Fortunately, I am good at knowing my back/side roads and frequently use them on a regular basis. I've never been without a landline and know the value of those! Sure costs a lot to have a cell phone and a landline, though. I've always thought about dumping the landline, but just never thought that was in my best interest. In my neighborhood, we tend to sit outside in clusters and socialize when the power goes out, so I've learned. Seed? Foraging book? Uh...no. Things to think about.
I even make sure that the gurls have extra food and litter on hand when I get down to just one bag.
