  1. Saw a female black bear trying to climb a fallen tree. She was determined to get to the top, but finally wandered off looking amazingly like some human drunk.
  2. Wear it proudly and apologize to no one about it....nor to most things people of low breeding and poor social skills say about anything you do.
  3. Anything with pumpkins and most other squash-type things. String beans, boiled tomatoes, and potato soup.
  4. I don't understand how so many people can be cajoled into mass idiocy in almost everything around the world today.
  5. That sounds great, but I probably am too lazy to tackle it. Then, again.............maybe not. Thanks
  6. Used to get some bottle simmering sauce for seafood from Smart and Final in Ontario, CA. It was something special and we'd put it in a pot with shrimp, scallops, salmon, crab, and almost any other seafood. Add a dash or several Tabasco and some butter and in a short time we had a marvelous meal. Hadn't thought of it in years until this morning: I awoke with THE URGE! Anyone know of a source or have recipe for such a mess?
  7. I have handled but never fired a Webley - Fosbury .455. It's not only UUUGLY, it's also about as graceful as a bear cub on a roller skates. I owned and fired a Mouse Handled Broomer in 7.63 mm (30 cal. Mauser). With the original factory load it was a match for the early .357 Magnum velocity-wise, but with a lighter bullet.
  8. My sister and BIL were horrifed when the visited Hanoi and were told the US killed civilians. "WE DON'T DO THAT!!!" Really? Ask the people of Berlin, Rome, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, most of North and a lot of SouthKorea, much of France, The Netherlands, Italy, Romania, North Africa, and maybe several thousand other places.....just in MY life time! You'll find the statement to not only be false, but downright uneducated and foolish.
  9. Yep, she's crazy! I used to see that same look on my wife's face...and never understood why. We were together 51 years before she passed. Would have been 57 last July. I always said I was smarter than she was. After all, look who I married and look who she married. Congratulations my friend. Give her a hug.
  10. And why would I subject myself to FB BS when I have an email and a telephone...or, God forbid, someone might still use snail mail....or drive a few miles for a face-to-face visit. I know, I know Forty Rod = dinosaur. What will they do, cut my hair and send me back to 'Nam?
  11. I've never had a problem with the Facebook version. On the other hand I Never use Facebook....and never will.
  12. They scream bloody murder if we infringe on their "church and state" Constitution guarantees but freely turn it around to infringe on our equally guaranteed Constitutional rights. This is the epitome of hypocrasy....and it's not just this particular religion, but many others, mostst all of the "free" news, most other governmental agencies who side with them and a huge majority of today's voters.
  13. My wife was very obedient. She'd say "Yes, Dear'", "Sure, Hon", or I'll get right on it"....then go do whatever she wanted. I put up with it for 51 years until she passed....and smiled almost all the time.
  14. Lost a friend when he hit an Angus bull up at Craters of the Moon on his way back to college.
  15. Me too. My wife used them a lot and haven't seen any need to replace them with anything else. Most of my smaller pots have metal lids.
  16. Valdez Is Coming and he has "something for rabbits" and Sharps rifle. One of my favorites and I'll add The Daughters of Joshua Cabe as my third favorite.
  17. I was young once. I wasn't very good at it. At 47 I was just two years from having my own business and taking it up to the best income I ever earned.
  18. When I was in the Army I sat on 52 Special Courts Martial. There was always a Major or Lt. Colonel as the top officer and the defense would almost automatically summarily challenge him which left the Captain (me) as the presiding officer. There were usually at least three 2nd and 1st Lieutenants and some times another Captain left and I ended up being the top dog on something like 37 of them. Defense was appointed and was usually a pretty green kid and we discharged the charges on several because the defense was inadequate. Long ago and far away, 1967-1968 when I was a new Captain and a Company Commander. I barely have a memory of those days becuase my focus was on running the 526 Ordnance Company (Heavy Equipment General Support) something I have a very sharp memory of like it was yesterday.
  19. I agree. Most impressive to me was the use of so many wagons, real oxen, and cattle herds in a day when Hollywood didn't make such things (real antiques?), when animals weren't cared for as well, and where several dozen cattle were washed away downstream....and no one even tried to save them. And if only John Wayne didn't keep throwing his knife.
  20. Me neither and it aggravates the bejabbers out of me to learn something new when I had no intention of doing so.
