  1. Congratulations. Marriage that last takes effort from both which means she has been as dedicated to making things work as you have.
  2. Didn't they use a 30 inch barrel in will Penny at the last shoot out?
  3. Since we as a nation did not declare our independence until 1776 and not have a constitution until 1789 , and before then Britain and France ruled parts of our current territory, that make 85 years more accurate. Also see the Gettysburg address.
  4. Tried regular boot socks but diabetic socks are more comfortable but I sometimes wear them anyway. I think my main problem is my feet swell up so much I had to go to the next size up shoe. Oddly I don't have that problem with snake boots as long as I tie off at the second hole instead of the top hole.
  5. I live on a red clay with sand mixed dirt road. The county scrapes it once in a blue moon, often right before it rains. They do not put a crown in the middle but often put a mound along the edges by the ditch. This means it is filled with potholes. My neighbor and I sometimes use our box blade and tractor to smooth it out, but it is so hard it sometimes wears or breaks the box blade and has minimal affect on the potholes. If I took a 7ft tiller , how deep should I set it to make a difference or would it cause more damage than good?
  6. I tried dr comfort diabetic socks and they are comfortable and better than normal socks, BUT darn it the heel and bottom wear thin and get holes. I need a good sturdy diabetic sock that can hold up to snake boots and mud boots since they are the most comfortable shoe I own. I can wear them all Day while my dr comfort mini boots hurt after a couple of hours.
  7. I used to exclusively use bore butter to season muskets and cap and ball guns. Then the forum showed me ballistol. Ballistol is hard to get where I live and hard to find on line sometimes. What else is good for cleaning and seasoning black powder guns?
  8. We lost some restaurants but most survived. The local ones that remain have cut their hours due to food and staff shortages. Before I knew a virus was coming a guy agreed to sell me cows when they were ready. By that time the virus was in its early stages but he opted to sell me a butchered cow. I was glad I bought it. This winter I bought another one, also really glad I did.
  9. My wife and I thought we'd go out for supper and leave the children with my mom. We thought of Red Lobster , which is 45 minutes away. I checked their web site to make sure they were open . They were, only the online menu informed us that the 9.99 and 13.99 meals we once got before the virus were now 19.99 and up. some meals were not 39.99. We then checked Longhorn and a NY strip that we used to get for 14 was now 20. The porterhouse that I was too cheap but always wanted to get at 19 was now 30. We then checked locally owned steak houses, one that would insinu
  10. Pat, . That is something I did not know. Odd. That is helpful in my decision about the 19x.
  11. I once carried a glock and knew officers that were good shots but did not do well with the glock due to ergonomics. I always did fine, maybe because it reminds me of a luger ergonomically. I've never tried the 19x though. Curious about it. I've once traded a deputy for his beretta and before I carried it , I tried it out and it was OK, just not great. I since put a 22 conversion and wilson combat thin grips and love it but wonder if the m9a3 is better. The m17 is really trying to make my 1911 jealous. It's super wonderful. It's better than the original Henry
  12. WAXAHACHIE, that is a good idea, I should go buy a 35 remington. :-)
  13. To me to watch the Oscar's is no different than attending the awards banquet for a high school in another state where I don't know anyone.
  14. For a present, Verizon sends me advertisements to convert my photos to a blanket or other items, so I had a photo of me and the 4 children at the beach that I had them put on a blanket . I also bought her a pioneer woman measuring cup set and the book Boots and Saddles by Libby Custer.
  15. Just in case I die in my sleep, now that it is past midnight, it is my 35th wedding anniversary. I already took her hand and danced with her while singing the anniversary song from the Flintstones to make it official in case she decides to ditch me during the night. :-).
  16. I was young then but I do remember President Jimmy Carter Going on TV and telling us the failure was his fault. I think it is the only time I recall a President taking the blame for anything. My parents were not fond of his presidency but I was always impressed with his honesty. I was glad myself when Reagan took over.
  17. If you had to chose between the glock 19X, the sig 320(m17) , or the Beretta m9a3 which one do you think is better? I favor the sig m17 but am intrigued by the other two.
  18. My classmates sang it in class all the time back then.
  19. Usually either a tybee island GA hat or a tractor supply cap. Sometimes my tan hat with just the CIB on front. Other times my hat I got from the local John deere dealer when I bought a tractor last year.
