  1. Been having great warmish Spring weather; so good that my mind has drifted to that perennial topic - new sailboats.

     

    Shoulda known better.

     

    It's snowing.  Heavy and wet.  Ground is covered and it's accumulating.

     

    Pull the tarp back over that mental image.

    It's that time of year when I switch to tequila and rum for the Summer!!!  Tequila Sunrises!  Margaritas! Painkillers!   A battery driven blender for the beach!  Aaahhhh........

  3. My first gun was a gift from a fishing friend - a Browning Citori 12 gauge.  I got a late start in shooting - I was 50 y.o., and he wanted a shooting buddy.  He took the time to teach me the basics, and it was all downhill from there.  He has long since passed, but I remember him every time I handle that gun.

  4. Have the moderator's rules changed?

     

    It seems like every day, there are several postings deleted, closed, or mysteriously removed without explanation.

     

    Unless there has been a massive outbreak of incivility, it might be helpful for the rest of us if you gave us a hint as to why a particular post was deep sixed.  Is it necessary to delete the entire thread if someone slipped up and got heated?  I can't imagine that the entire thread becomes offensive if one post falls outside the guidelines.  And it leaves the rest of us scratching our heads, looking for inoffensive posts and/or wondering what the heck went wrong.

     

    Not whining; just wishing for some clarity.

    Just a thought to consider.

    If by some very bad luck there is fire caused by your making gun powder (black powder included) your home insurance/car is void.

     

     

    How so?

    Being from West Virginia and personally knowing some of the clans descendants both on the Hatfield and McCoy side, I wanted to make one of those hats while still high school.  I borrowed one of my dad's good Sunday-go-to-Meeting hats from his closet, filled it with boiling water, stretched the center over a baseball bat and walla, the moonshiners hat.  These were worn with bib overalls, no shirt and barefoot to the Sadie Hawkins Dances.

     

    Your Dad must have been SO pleased.......

    Tried them one time. One time.

     

    A hot dog bun is about an inch and a half wide and an inch thick. If you slice it on the side, that gives you an open area that's an inch and a half deep. Plenty of room for the dog and toppings - thick toppings, like onions or relish or chili.

     

    But if you slice it at the top there's only room for the dog. Now if you're doing runny stuff, like ketchup or mustard, that's fine. But if you have chunky stuff, there ain't room to put it.

     

    So after that one ill-fated attempt, I went back to the side sliced.

     

    Does anyone remember the u-shaped hot dog buns? I think they were pepperidge farm. Looking at them from the end, they look like a U. You just set your hot dog down in the little trough.

     

    I guess America wasn't ready for that, because I haven't seen any in the last several years.

     

    Actually, a proper top-split bun is baked taller than a side split roll, and so comfortably accommodates a dog (or even a kielbasa or sausage) with plenty of room left for condiments.  Its flat bottom allows it to stand upright without spilling the goodies.

     

    For the history of the top split bun, see below.

    If you like it, use it. If you don't like it, don't.  Pretty simple.  Heck, if you like peanut butter on your hot dog, go for it and more power to you.

     

    I like chili-cheese dogs with sauerkraut.  Or just mustard. Or catsup and mustard.  Or whole grain mustard and 'kraut.  Don't care for raw onions (except maybe a few on a chili dog).  Nor do I care for the Chicago-style loaded dog.  

    If you want catsup on your steak, well, how is that really all that much different than BBQ sauce?

    What others like to eat isn't any of my business and (usually) won't take away my enjoyment of a meal.

     I agree generally; however, even after 45 of marriage, I cannot tolerate Mrs. LL's proclivity to smothering her scrambled eggs with catsup.....ugh!

    Not shooting but outdoors related:  Osprey backpacks. 
     

    I had one that was chewed on by a bear. (Long story. My own fault.). Osprey has a lifetime no questions guarantee so I called and asked if it applied to packs eaten by bears. 
     

    Not only did they send me a new pack, but they let me give the old one to a local outfitter who used it as a teaching display so folks wouldn’t repeat my mistake. 

     

    Smart marketing...

  10. Nothing beats a propane torch in your backpack....

     

    Or something bigger if you can swing it.

    Yeah, really. It's like Japanese people having trouble with the L sound. There is no L sound in Japanese, so they did not grow up learning to make that, and as adults their tongue does not want to make that noise. Or Germans with W.

     

    Or Yankees with y'all.

     

    We Yankees have absolutely no difficulty saying "yawl", except we are referring to our yachts, not a bastardized contraction of "you all".
