  1. Made it to Charlotte. In contact with the cancer center here. They are reviewing the data from the Mayo Clinic and should will get with us by Monday afternoon. It was colder here in Charoltte than at home. Snowed last night. Mass panic. Black ice. Predictions of the End Times. Etc etc. Pretty funny.
  2. I appreciate the smoothness. Making the evening a bit more bearable.
  3. In to the wild blue yonder.... Leaving for Albuquerque tomorrow to fly to Charlotte on Wednesday. Should be there for about 3 months. I’ll miss the homestead, but I’d go to the ends of the earth to help my bride. updated 2-21 below
  4. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/a-farm-boy-became-a-fearsome-warrior-at-iwo-jima-and-he-did-it-with-a-flamethrower/ar-BB1074Jc?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout
  5. If I was doing heavy duty to commercial work I would definitely go with Milwaukee. Also if I was going to by a motorcycle.
  6. Lots of guns are good. But in practice hitting a small fighter while you're moving 200 mph and he's moving 350 is dang tricky. The AAF took very heavy casualties until the much needed introduction of long range fighter escorts later in the war. The newspapers came up with the nickname the Flying Fortress, not the Air Force. It was basically a large, heavily armed target. The crews thanked God for the appearance of the P-51.
  7. I recall an old movie where a guy ordered two eggs on toast. The waitress hollered back to the cook, “Adam and Eve on a raft”. ”How do you want em?” she asked the guy. “Scrambled”, he says. “Wreck em”, she hollered.
  8. Last year my permit expired due to me having my head up my patoot. I went down to the sheriffs office to plead my case. ”No problem they said.There’s a grace period” “How long is the grace period?”, I asked The sheriff happened to be walking by behind the counter and he just looked over and winked at me.
  9. Back home again from Phoenix. Waiting on test results.
  10. I once used a Jeep CJ7 to tow a 2 horse trailer containing an overweight, nervous, dancing Saddlebred through heavy I95 traffic from Miami to West Palm Beach. Not fun.
  11. I never use my card for vending machines. Our local car wash recently installed car readers. Don’t use them either. In a hotel the other day I was getting ice and decided to get a soft drink. Only had a twenty on me but checked my pocket for change. Had a couple of dollar coins and much to my surprise they worked.
  12. The myth comes primarily from what we all knew and loved as kids....and still do, the Hollywood western. In the early days Hollywood was completely segregated, as was most of American society. The only black actors were cast in all black films, which were marketed exclusively to all black audiences. So for decades the only cowboys sen on the silver screen were Caucasian. There were exceptions like The Cisco Kid series but most non whites were relegated to comic roles. The movie industry has had a far reaching effect on Americans and their perceptions of history unfortunately.
  13. I do that all the time. I have know idea how it happens.
  14. Taking the recommendation of our oncologist plus Carol’s sister lives there.
  15. No problem my friend. My head is virtually spinning with new medical terminology from the past few days.
  16. The accuracy on the Mini tends to degrade as the barrel heats up. Slow fire is ok.
