  1. She’s here!!! 14 countries & over 69 cities later, we finally welcomed our daughter, Mavin Harley Morris into the world on 2/2/24 in Chicago. We’re pretty sure she’s the 1st baby to be born at the @thebeldenstratford and likely also the first to be born on a pole (@lupitpole - y’all need to market your home poles as vertical birthing assistance apparatuses). We’re hibernating for now & scheming up our next adventures as a family of 3! ‘Till next time, S&M…&m Check out our latest adventures at https://www.hoponandholdon.com/blog or https://www.instagram.com/reel/C3S_puiLfR0/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link&igsh=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==

  3. Howdy Wire Pards! I got to meet a SASS Wire hero tonight! @Garrison Joe, SASS #60708! He’s a super nice and humble guy - didn’t get why I was fawning over him and wanting a picture! He’s so knowledgeable about so many things! His posts and replies are kind and thoughtful. So, for those of you wondering what he looks like… here he is! Hugs!! Scarlett

  5. Copied from FB PAUL HARVEY'S LETTER TO HIS GRANDCHILDREN We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse. For my grandchildren, I'd like better. I'd really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches.. I really would. I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated. I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car. And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen. It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep. I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in. I hope you have to share a bedroom with your younger brother/sister. And it's all right if you have to draw a line down the middle of the room, but when he wants to crawl under the covers with you because he's scared, I hope you let him. When you want to see a movie and your little brother/sister wants to tag along, I hope you'll let him/her. I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your friends and that you live in a town where you can do it safely. On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don't ask your driver to drop you two blocks away so you won't be seen riding with someone as uncool as your Mom. If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one. I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books. When you learn to use computers, I hope you also learn to add and subtract in your head. I hope you get teased by your friends when you have your first crush on a boy / girl, and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap tastes like. May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick your tongue on a frozen flagpole. I don't care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don't like it... And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he/she is not your friend. I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa and go fishing with your Uncle. May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays. I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor's window and that she hugs you and kisses you at Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand. These things I wish for you - tough times and disappointment, hard work and happiness. To me, it's the only way to appreciate life.

  6. I went home last night to get my own meds taken care of and to try and sleep some. When I got back to the hospital, they informed me that she tested positive for Covid to go along with everything else. They are IVing mass amounts of fluids and running all sorts of tests and blood work. She seems to be resting more comfortably, breathing some better, and she ate some breakfast before I arrived. This is an ICU situation and they are going at it strong. All for now. Thanks for your prayers! BLACKWATER

  7. IMO...the ONLY way to determine INTENT is to ASK the shooter WHY s/he shot it that way.

  8. A highly contagious malady that has infected many Americans from the White House to the most lowly common people. Beware of it and look out for the symptoms: Calls to raise taxes. Defunding or doing away with military a police agencies. Attempts to disarm citizens and other efforts to ignore or do way with the Bill Of Rights. Ignoring the Constitution and other laws to further their agendas. Opening our borders to criminals, terrorists and anyone else. Giving benefits who almost everyone except honest, hard working citizens. Deliberately causing gender confusions. Creating racial and other problems. Taking over schools, news media, and product ads to attack our children. Lying about practically everything. Belittling our history, traditions and in general, our entire way of life. Allowing alien agencies to attack our economy, health, products without interference. Giving, aid, comfort, arms, and technology to our real and potential enemies. Turning our backs on our allies and supporting their enemies. Interfering with our free election processes. Filing false charges against their political opponents. And the list goes on........and on!

  9. SOMETHING IS WORKING!! I arrived at the room this morning to find Schoolmarm sitting in a chair! She had already been to an occupational therapy session and a physical therapy session too! Still receiving fluids and her blood sugar fluctuates a lot. Her appetite is still lousy, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction. The texts and phone calls and pictures have really been a spark and the cowboy community is the very best!! YOU FOLKS ROAR!!

  10. I was pretty slow being convinced to try wet tumbling but since my last lead level was 17.9 I thought I’d give it a try. I decided on the Frankford Arsenal Platinum 7L. It has a 3 hour timer and Bass Pro Shop had them on sale for $149.98 and free shipping. I ran my first batch of .38 special and didn’t deprime, too much extra work to me. I just used water and the cleaning solution sample that came with the kit. From the results I think that’s what I’ll continue to use. I ran this batch for 2 hours and I’m extremely happy with the results. I guess I’m hooked now! Randy

  11. Just spoke with one of the doctors, the kidney specialist. He says that she is improving, albeit slowly. They are still administering fluids and have added a unit of blood to raise her hemoglobin, which had dropped. We had discussed the need for dialysis, but he thinks that it can be avoided for now. They’re going to push fluids and try to get her to eat and drink more on her own and see what happens over the weekend. She sounds much better and seems stronger. Much more comfortable, at least it appears that way. She ate a little of the pancakes they brought for breakfast and is drinking some juice and water on her own. My local cowboy friends are here to support and I’m doing my best to maintain. THANK ALL OF YOU FOR THE PRAYERS AND GOOD WISHES!

  12. Stolen for the web… I'll never forget the day my Mom called me in a panic "Janna, you've got to convince your daddy to get rid of that horse, it's gonna kill him!". Major (AKA "Major Deal" as mama named him) was a young and vicious stallion when dad bought him. He "couldn't be broke". The men who owned him previously had used a technique to break horses that involved beatings and tying his head tightly between two posts where they left him standing without food or water for 4 weeks. Major stood strong. When dad brought him home, he barreled through five strands of fence within minutes of arriving and he'd Bite and strike at anyone within distance. My dad never broke him.... he earned his heart. Every single day, for hours and hours dad, worked to earn that abused horse's trust. Love won and after two full years, Major allowed my dad to ride him. When dad would go out, Major would kiss him on the head over and over. They had a bond that only horse people could ever understand. It seemed only fitting to let Major say goodbye. This is Major's last kiss.”

  13. I got up yesterday morning and the battery was dead on my truck so down to Auto Zone for a new one. Put me back about an hour. I got here last night and got the trailer parked. As usual on the first night I woke up at 1:00 and couldn’t get back to sleep. So I got here plenty early. Leadbender met me coming in and it was sure good to see him again. As you can see from the pictures I might be here a tad early. LB tells me they’ve got 24-25 carts reserved!! That’s a lot more than the last two years. Minnesota Clay will be here around 7;00, he helps run the Cart Corral. It was 63 degrees when I got here so I doubt I’ll fire up the fire pit or don the buffalo coat this morning.

  14. The REAL effective way to get a clean match is to maintain your guns with serious intent and knowledge, and load (or buy) top quality ammo. No one should be holding up their posse tinkering with a firearm more than about twice as long as the total times most folks are shooting, if they want to stay on the good side of the rest of the posse. Do the rules allow a lengthy on-the-line delay? Yes. But common courtesy does not. Folks come to shoot, not so much to see someone repair a gun. good luck, GJ

  15. GOOD NEWS!! They have moved Schoolmarm out of ICU into a private room!! She still has some ph issues, but it’s a major improvement. Still receiving fluids, her vitals are good and stable, and her breathing continues to improve.

  16. The Latest!! They got me checked out and did some testing. My infection is being handled with the new antibiotic. Blood work showed no signs of the infection spreading. The EKG looked fine. I saw two doctors, both of whom told me to go get a damned good meal and get some rest. When I got back to Schoolmarm’s room, she was visibly better! She had eaten some apple cobbler and was drinking iced tea. Her color is better, the nurse said that her kidneys appeared to be improving, and she had called Hatfield to tell him that they were taking me to the ER. I am at home now, for the evening, and Hatfield fixed up a couple of pizzas!!! Somebody’s listening!! Y’all got it going on!!

  18. this BS of having others is getting on my nerves a bit , i felt i failed to explain myself completely , so i came back to add that they can have artists stand up and do whatever they do - but do not call anything "OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM" except our national anthem , and when you add that "BLACK" to it it strikes me as racism and division efforts , its not worth fighting over but id add dixie before id add these new inventions , it at least has roots that some of us can relate to ,

  19. Schoolmarm is, again, sitting up and she has had one round of PT this morning. They told her this morning that she was out of the Covid protocols. That’s good news ‘cause now she can concentrate on her other issues more freely. The kidney function continues to improve to the point where she’ll come off the catheter this afternoon. A major step!! Altogether, a pretty good day!

  20. Here in WV you show your voter registered voter card and your ID to vote. They check their paper roster and verify everything before you sign then get your ballot. No ID or registered voter card, no vote for you. As it should be.

  21. I turn 73 in March. I no longer really care about being in the Senior or Elder Statesman Gunfighter category. Soooooo, if it ain't wrong, I think this year, even in the State and Regional matches, I'll just shoot in the plain ole 'Gunfighter' category. Just gonna shoot, relax and have fun...... and not think of any buckle or plaque. I hope I ain't accused of being a 'Cherry Pick'r. ..........Widder

  24. She’s sitting up today! Already had a round of occupational therapy. Her blood sugar is still staying low, so they have her eating fruit and glucose paste. Her kidney doctor said that her numbers are getting better. They’re looking at an inpatient rehab of about 14 days. I did my own doctor visit this morning. I’m mostly holding my own. The doctor wants to operate on the foot again to clean up any remaining infection and remove some bone fragments. I told her that as soon as I can get Schoolmarm to where she can manage, we’ll get it done. It may take two procedures, but the “wound” will be closed before I leave the hospital. That will be a first and we’re finally not just doing the same thing again and again! ANYWAY! Schoolmarm is doing better and says thanks again for all your prayers!!

  25. DO IT DO IT DO IT!! It’s the most fun and it takes me about 1/2 the time to clean all 4 guns as shooting smokeless. I shoot APP. You can use hi-tek coated bullets or traditional lubed with APP. JOIN THE DARKSIDE!! We have COOKIES! Hugs! Scarlett

  27. I received an email tonight from someone identifying himself as Troy Smith. The email address was fromtrsmith511@gmail.com and a phone number of 707-247-5625. The email was sanitized with very little information, but obviously from an ad I posted here quite awhile ago. The sender wanted me to respond by phone, but responded by email. The return message had some issues. I googled the telephone number and one of the returns indicated the number was reported as being involved in a Zelle scam. Didn't receive a response once I asked where in Michigan they were located. Be careful out there.

  28. This is why (imo) this is a poorly worded, poorly thought out and poorly applied rule. This is the ONLY rule in our game where the subjectivity of "shooters intent" must be determined (or matters). But yet - it is the greatest time penalty (short of DQ). EVERY other rule is based around objective, measurable "result". Shooter loads too many rounds in the rifle - penalty is assigned (doesn't matter why). Shooter breaks the 170 - we assign penalty (doesn't matter why). Shooter drops their gun to the ground - we assign penalty (doesn't matter why). There is no place for rules that view the exact same action and then assign differing outcomes. Either make SOG a definable infraction (or series of infractions) that can be consistently applied via review of the shooters observable action or do away with it.
