  1. Prayers of comfort to you and your family. Your MIL is blessed to have had you tell her how much she means to you. You are blessed to have a great relationship with her.
  2. She's a cutie. Best wishes for many happy years together.
  3. Uno and I tried watching that when it came on TV. I was so emotionally wrapped up in the fireground scenes, I was screaming at the TV with tears running down my cheeks giving orders to the firefighters (I'm a former officer). Uno had to turn the TV off and hug me. He said you can't take this any more. It's too much for you. He was right.
  4. I would not epoxy fabric. It's too porous. The seepage would crate quite a mess. Some fabric stores carry heavy duty hook and loop that you can stitch on. The problem still is having enough surface area with hook and loop to handle the weight of the gun. Let me cogitate on this for a bit and I'll let you know if I come up with any solutions.
  5. I agree with putting the "hook" on the holster and the "loop" in the pocket.... HOWEVER........ Be aware most retail hook and loop you find won't restrain more than a few ounces, to a pound at the most. It's not designed for what you are trying to do. Take a look at "industrial" grade hook and loop. At the very least, it will give you the weight it will support. I would hate for you to go through all this work to have it come apart and have the holster or gun fall out of your pocket.
  6. Congrats on all counts, HP. Wishing you many more.
  7. Living in a small town, I have a difficult time buying clothes. There isn't much available for me. That's how I know a number of these on-line retailers. I have purchased from them in the past, in the past being the operative.
  8. For informational purposes only. Here are some of the other services/companies owned by Walmart. I was surprised at a few of them...... Vudu Moosejaw Jet.com Hayneedle Shoes.com Modcloth Bonobos Eloquii Bare Necessities Art.com Allswell
  9. Calamity Kris's dress and millinery shop grew and prospered in the coming years. She took on Abigail Ward as an apprentice, as she had shown quite an aptitude for fashion and clothing design, as well as a keen business acumen. After Calamity Kris retired, Abigail brought on one of the Keller girls to help with the store. Shortly thereafter, Abigail bought out Calamity Kris and the store was renamed "Abigail Ward's Fine Fashion and Millinery". It became known far and wide as a destination for the latest fashion and fine tailoring. It was a long courtship but Calamity Kris and Uno Mas were finally wed in a simple ceremony in the church. Uno Mas went on to open an Engineering firm in town which had numerous employees, including a couple of the Keller boys. After Calamity sold the shop, Uno retired and they had a peaceful life on their land with their dogs and cats. While Calamity and Uno never had children of their own, they spent much time with the Wards and the Kellers spoiling their children rotten. After they retired, the Mas's began classes on how to grow and cultivate fruit, vegetables and flowers on their land. Once they passed, they willed their home and land with it's many fruit trees and gardens to the orphanage. Many of the students who had attended classes there took over teaching them so the craft could be passed on to the next generation.
  10. Thanks Allie Mo. We're ready to run if we need to. Watching the updates very closely.
  11. Sorry to hear that, Alpo. At least you don't need to evacuate for the hurricane, yet.............
  12. If the spaghetti models are correct, it looks like Florida may be spared most of the destruction of Dorian. If it does hook up the east coast, folks in Georgia and the Carolinas need to be wary. The speeds are approaching a CAT 5. It currently has sustained winds of 150mph. The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a 1-5 rating based on the hurricane’s present intensity. Category 1 Hurricane: Winds 74-95 mph (64-82 kt or 119-153 km/hr). Storm surge generally 4-5 ft above normal. No real damage to building structures. Category 2 Hurricane: Winds 96-110 mph (83-95 kt or 154-177 km/hr). Storm surge generally 6-8 feet above normal. Some roofing material, door, and window damage of buildings. Category 3 Hurricane: Winds 111-130 mph (96-113 kt or 178-209 km/hr). Storm surge generally 9-12 ft above normal. Some structural damage to small residences and utility buildings with a minor amount of curtainwall failures. Category 4 Hurricane: Winds 131-155 mph (114-135 kt or 210-249 km/hr). Storm surge generally 13-18 ft above normal. More extensive curtainwall failures with some complete roof structure failures on small residences. Category 5 Hurricane: Winds greater than 155 mph (135 kt or 249 km/hr). Storm surge generally greater than 18 ft above normal.
