What a day  
Yesterday was a great outing. We had our usual Ihop breakfast which was nice. Got some supplies then came home to gather our stuff. We looked up if the Disney Store was open in Brandon mall. It was so I wanted to go there to see if the had the Inside Out box set. They did not but told us they could order it for us and have it sent to our house. It was a good price for $20 and free shipping. Comes with a lot of characters including the protein cops and worker. I want those. These sets are being ransomed on Ebay and Amazon which is really stupid since you can get them for retail price at the stores still or on their website. I don't care about value on these. I'm opening them to play with and display. We stopped at a Hot Topic too. Nothing good there except they had a classic Jurassic Park T-shirt that was cool. Like the one the geek in Jurassic World was wearing.

After that we decided to figure out where that Outdoor World store was we always see from the interstate. We had a hard time finding it but finally did. WOW. We had no idea it was so amazing. I was expecting another Dick's Sporting Goods like place. We both instantly became over stimulated by all the beautiful taxidermy displays, fake trees, dioramas, fish and giant fish tank. It's was lovely inside. We didn't know where to start or were to go. But then I say the kayak section which was small though and started over there. They didn't just sell stuff like Dick's they had boats and ATV's for sale. A showroom and office like a car dealership. They had so many guns and ammo. And you can get hunting and fishing licenses there too. I checked out some binoculars and found a nice pair by Nikon I want to get that are small and good for traveling. They are 10x25 so I can get closer to stuff than my 8x and smaller and lighter for my trips. They have a very good image with no eclipsing. Fast focus and I think I can find and track birds in flight well with these. So I will get those eventually. There's also a restaurant there. It's one huge beautiful warehouse. I took pics and video so I will upload those eventually and share. I'm still uploading stuff from Georgia and I'm on day 6 of 7 now.

I may try to work on some art today. I don't know. We'll see how I feel. I already got a bit of yard work. Just hacked and slashed a bunch of giant weeds and still have a long way to go with that. Now the sun is out an it's too hot so I'll have to wait til this evening to work on that again and try to get more progress in.

So after that we ate at Red Lobster. It was good then we came home. We watched stuff and rested. The other night we watched The Expendable 3 and that was really good. I very much enjoyed that. I always like well made action movies. I ended the night with some good gaming in Fallout New Vegas. Found a unique gun I never had seen called Ranger Sequoia. Got it off an NCR traitor. It's more powerful than my modified 44 so I'll be retiring that and it is now George's new pistol. It's a huge hand gun so pretty neat and I think it's good for George.

Current Mood: Amazed

Outdoor World is awesome, and every one has local fish in their fish tank, so the one close to us has different fish in it than the one at Myrtle Beach. I never have enough time to spend in there.

Yes this one had bass and gar. I want to go back when there are fewer people.

Sounds like a cool shop!

Yes. I will post the pics soon.

Hmm, sounds nice that you could get that toy set from the store, while others may only know about the ransoms on the internet that people feeding on the desperation of others put up.

Well, some nice stuff I certainly glanced at from that visit. I guess a camera would be a nice thing to find in an outdoor warehouse since I find nature photography to be the most enjoyable thing to do outside.
Edit: Oops, I wasn't careful enough while reading. Binoculars, not cameras... maybe I should not immediately jump into all the action after a long trip.

Hacking and slashing weeds... yeah, I had to do that a bit when I still had to do garden work. They die harder than Bruce Willis.

I am so eager to have my PC back tomorrow now that you mention that. I may should think about what I want to play this time maybe.

I did not get that gun, I'm too nice a guy in this game right now. I am sure I can go back and steal it, but I'll see. I'm happy with my equipment so far.
