all may work got cancelled for a few months . that was weeks ago . so I picked up local work which pays less than half of my regular job . I got the stimulus check and I figured to hold it for bills being my income got waylaid in more than half .
but , im looking ok and I want to stimulate with the stimulus … so , im only buying American .. period .

Theres a number of great knives made in America . Great American pipes and some great American tobacco too . I realize there are companies that are American but carry non American items . Thats ok but im going 100 percent American

Anyway , im gonna do some shopping and I thought id just put the idea out there to go all American . whats funny is , I really don't need anything and trying to get stuff for the boys , electronic wise , that's made in America … lol , good luck ! . I could always go for a knife and tobacco . I was thinking of building a bird feeder today but I may go buy one , so long as its American

you guys got any stimulus plans ?

We picked up a few things for the house. A screen door for the front entry, a solo stove bonfire, some shade sails for the back patio, and a new pit boss pro series 1100 pellet grill. When all is said and done we want to be able to have family and friends over for dinner and whatnot so comfort has been our focus

Knowing him, he likes that trip to the mailbox.

Got my check and it went right into savings for those "Rainy Days". I've been retired for 11 yrs and live off Social Security
and a meager pension so those "Rainy Days" come around a lot faster then they used to. I buy American all the time with the exception of some pipes and tobacco. My wife is so serious about buying American that the dinnerware set I bought her last Christmas, which was made in China, is still in the box and she refuses to use it.

Direct deposit. I'm not holding my breath. I will, however, buy American. I was looking for some masks (ugh) because I'm sure that's going to be the next step here. They all come from China. NO WAY. My bandana will be fine.

I was shocked when mine showed up in the mail today. i have no immediate plans to spend any of it. I don't think I'll be purchasing anything that was made in China, if there's any reasonable substitute that is made in the USA, Canada, or even Europe. I agree with Mr. King, I'll use a cloth bandana instead of a mask and pretend I'm still a little kid with a cap gun holding up a stage coach or a train! lol
