  1. I still can't believe that CA gets 55 - Electoral Votes.
  2. That's one of the ones on my list! Of, course...all of them that I haven't read are on my list.
  3. Young kid - Charlottes Web Pre -Teen - Huckleberry Finn/Tom Sawyer, Playboy (when I could find them). Teen - Slaughterhouse 5, Anything about the Manson murders, some Heinlein, lots of Civil War/WWI/WWII/Korea history, Sci-Fi. As a teen and young adult, I was a voracious reader, a ton of Sci-Fi, war history and the like. I didn't really just stop reading, it just gradually ebbed away...I guess life just got in the way. Tried to start back reading a few years ago but many books are printed with small print that is a struggle to read with even glasses on. The last books that I read was Killing Kennedy and Killing the Rising Sun after buying them at a garage sale for $1 each. I enjoyed them and have been looking for the rest of the "Killing" series at garage sales and thrift stores for a fair price but haven't found them. I don't like reading books online or listening to them on "tape".
  4. Baseball and racing season. I'd rather keep the Florida winter all the way thru October.
  5. The top pictures are after the fire.
  6. Back then FSU was a all female college...still is to some extent.
  7. Damn, wish I'd been transported back when I was 20 and they stored the pattern til now.
  8. I learned to drive on a '73 VW Beetle. Clutches were non forgiving on those things. I hated that car, but I learned how to drive a manual transmission in it. Surprised that my stepfather doesn't still have neck problems from the "learning curve". Riding a clutch on a hill is truly an art as is the ole heel toe. I miss those days...sorta.
  9. She's the only one that could hail all frequencies.
  10. I'm not sure, but I think that Scotty is the only person that transported down in a red shirt and survived...multiple times. What a badass.
  11. My dog was smarter than that. He can spot a bath from a mile away.
  12. Keeps intrusive people and vampires away also...best of both worlds.
  13. Make sure your tetanus and rabies shots are up to date. Wash the wound well and dress with antibiotic ointment. If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, keep a very close eye on the wound for redness or puss forming. Seemingly innocuous small wounds can have a habit of becoming a problem when you have bad blood circulation. If you see a problem, go to the doc for further treatment. Our winds from the storm were about 40 - 50 with some higher gusts and 1.20" of rain...just another day.
  14. Nubile goats, the envy of Taliban everywhere
  15. What a coincidence. I took all of the creams and lotions on the bathroom counter and put them in one big bottle, Same thing with all of those colored little bottles with the brushes attached to the cap. Saved a ton of space on the counter and wait til you see how I saved space in the shower!
  16. There are over 50 gun stores within Pinellas County, Fl. While I haven't been in all of them, I have been to about 75% of them at one time or another. I don't think that any of them qualify as a "real gunshop" as described by Warden Callaway. Most have the ever popular black guns but very few used guns or older guns. Hitting the pawn shops is hit or miss, mainly miss, but when you do find something at a pawn shop, they want top dollar++ for the item and don't want to negotiate. Many of these gun stores are still asking 2020/21 (pandemic) prices for firearms that sell for considerably less on line or in the big box stores. I know, I know...the old "support your local gun store" premise is going to come up and I agree with it to a point...but ultimately, I'm not a rich man, have to watch spending and I'm only acquaintances (not friends) with a couple of the owners. IF it was just a few bucks, that's one thing but when it's $50 or higher than other places, the other places win out. None of the small stores that I've visited carry anything remotely considered reloading supplies. There is a privately owned retail reloading supply store in Clearwater but I won't step foot in the place as the guy is a complete ass and his prices are high to boot. After reading what I wrote above, it comes off as I'm a cheapskate...I'm not. I just want a good gun at a fair deal and fair deals are hard to come by these days.
  17. Do a search on sailboat scrap yards/wrecking yards. Many sell scrap lead in bars and ingots. I realize New Mexico isn't teeming with sailboats but some of the out of state scrap yards may ship.
  18. Maybe a blender? I don't know how you could make the size consistent though or if it would harm the blender. I just order lizard litter from Amazon, 10 qts for $20. https://www.amazon.com/English-Walnut-Shells-Ground-10quart/dp/B004LOEGK6/ref=pd_lpo_sccl_1/137-6547405-8748869?pd_rd_w=LX6eK&content-id=amzn1.sym.1ad2066f-97d2-4731-9356-36b3edf1ae04&pf_rd_p=1ad2066f-97d2-4731-9356-36b3edf1ae04&pf_rd_r=5WA47VPFRNE40BP0FY6K&pd_rd_wg=DAZSh&pd_rd_r=3e676fed-a5c3-4cc4-9a66-ea27d04ac65d&pd_rd_i=B004LOEGK6&psc=1
