    You was talkin' about them the other day, and I picked up a copy of MY BROTHER'S DESTROYER, which I believe is the second one?

     

    Haven't looked at it yet, but it's in the lineup.

    My Brothers Destroyer is book number 1 and it’s the right one to start with otherwise the others won’t make that much sense. Let me know what you think, they keep getting better. Don’t read the third one at bedtime, not conducive to a good nights sleep.

    Why yes. Yes he does. Alpo is what is known as a voracious reader. He finished the Alistair MacLean book that he was reading yesterday, and is now reading a Stephen Hunter book. When he finishes that - undoubtedly sometime early tomorrow - he will start to read something else. He is contemplating an Ellery Queen book, since he is not read any Ellery Queen in 3 or 4 years. Or maybe some Michael Crichton. Maybe some Elmore Leonard. Jesse Stone maybe. Anne McCaffrey. Lovejoy, Twain, maybe a little Stephen King or Robert Howard. He has a large library.

    Alpo,, have you read any of Clayton Lindemuth books about the old moonshiner? I just finished his third one in the moonshiner series and it was a thriller to say the least. I’m a Stephen Hunter fan also but these Lindemuth books are something different and hard to put down.

    As a light use table (meals, homework), it is not bad but one would not want to routinely put a lot of weight on the unsupported edge. As the load increases the two joints must be strengthened.

    Exactly right. If you put your weight on it trying to get up from the couch it puts a tremendous amount of stress on those joints, they won’t last long.


  4. Find a local trophy shop and have them make one, that’s what I’ve done in the past. They’ll pretty much make one with anything you want on it. Out here with politics the way they are they get pretty spicy, you might say.


  5. I’ve been sleeping on a Tempupedic for the last 15 years or so and love it. I replaced one motor drive unit at no cost. The massage feature is a waste of money , IMHO, of course because the massage is minuscule if there at all. I sleep with my head elevated and that’s a nice feature never tried the Sleep Number but have heard good things about it.

    MVA scopes and mounts are tops. Made and built in Montana. 

    Great for LR & BPCR.

    Not so much for hunting. 

    Call MVA and get the straight scoop from them.

    OLG 

    Great information right here, if anyone knows the long range shooting science it’s OLG.

    Yeah... my wife made me get my own freezer when we used to live here in the 80s and 90s. Live rattlesnakes... I think she would be my ex after that! As soon as I am legally able to buy a resident H/F license I'm going out to the dens I had located decades ago.

    Arizona has lots of snakes. Wimmen aren’t fond of snakes in the fridge, that’s for sure.

    Got out on Sunday, to the Panorama Sportsman's Club. 

     

    It went a good deal better, this week.

     

    Still a long way away from being completely comfortable! Slooooowly, but surely.  But slowly...

     

    Cheers,

    Were shooting 8 stages at Cajon on Saturday.

  9. I used to live in Casa Grande and I made buckles and belts out of rattlesnakes too. I had more people bringing me snakes that I could handle. One morning I got up to leave for work and there was a paper bag on my front door step. I looked inside and it was a couple of big rattlers that I thought were dead, they weren’t. I put them in the refrigerator and left for work and about  an hour later my soon to be ex calls me and tells me there is a rattlesnake coiled up in her refrigerator. Needless to say snakes weren’t allowed in the refrigerator again. Turns out a couple of Indian guys that worked on the roads out on the reservation had caught them and dropped them off during the night.

  10. I came home from shooting a match out in the Imperial Valley last night to find my wife watching a program about the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. I watched the rest of it with her and when it was over she told me that since it was her day off tomorrow (today) that she wanted me to go see a movie, Jojo Rabbit, with her. I thought it was a kids movie but boy was I wrong. Well on the drive over to Cinepolis she told me that a friend of hers liked it so much she’s seen it 3 times but her son in law who just saw it last week said that he didn’t care for it that much. I was really in the dark as to what it was about and at first I thought it was some kind of attempt to make Adolf Hitler look all nice and kind and cuddly, you might say. 
     

    I recommend the movie, there are some humorous parts but it is a war movie none the less.

  11. I was at a Faith Hill concert about 20 years ago and my ears are still ringing from it, it was so loud it was painful. Went to an America/Three Dog Night concert back in 1988 and it was very enjoyable not obnoxiously loud and everyone was well behaved, maybe the Mary Jane smoke in the air calmed everyone down. Went to one of Neil Diamonds later concerts down at the sports arena and he was not near the performer he was the first time I saw him. Garth Brooks and Reba McIntyre down at Miramar Air-station was memorable but we were so far away they looked like ants, getting out of that thing took hours because there were so many people there.

    Yul, I never said that I KNEW they were all doing it, I merely said I THOUGHT they were all doing it to a certain extent. Did the Astros take it to another level? Absolutely they did. I hope it stops and we can just enjoy baseball!!;)

    It’s going to be an interesting season.

  13. A friend of my wife’s won some Rolling Stones concert tickets and offered them to my wife. She asked me if I wanted to go and I said no. I’ve been to a few concerts and didn’t really enjoy it, incredibly loud and crowded, anyway she’s going with one of her sisters. If you had the chance to go to a Stones concert would you go? I doubt they’ve got many more in them as old as they are.
