  1. I’ve seen a lot of baseball bench-clearing fights but never anything like that! Was the guy insulting his mom as he rounded the bases? I’m guessing the kid must be a two sport athlete. And it’s obvious what the other sport is. After that he might be a zero sport athlete! Unbelievable!
  2. There’s another one out now. Article in the Rifleman.
  3. Got my second booster yesterday. Kind of dragged down all day. But the first booster gave me a headache and sniffles. Not so bad this time.
  4. Okay maybe not. As you were. WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Capitol was briefly evacuated Wednesday evening after police said they were tracking an aircraft “that poses a probable threat,” but the plane turned out to be a military aircraft with people parachuting out of it for a demonstration, officials told The Associated Press. The alert to evacuate the Capitol came shortly after 6:30 p.m. The aircraft, a single-engine plane, was reported to be circling around Washington after taking off from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, two people familiar with the matter. The people said the aircraft did not report taking off and did not have appropriate clearance. The people were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The plane was carrying members of the U.S. Army’s Golden Knights, who then parachuted into the Washington Nationals' baseball stadium for a pregame demonstration. Nationals Park is a little more than a mile away from the U.S. Capitol.
  5. Depends on the rifle. The 1841 had a sword bayonet. A few others did also. European imports etc. https://www.horsesoldier.com/products/edged-weapons/bayonets/37287
  6. And in virtually every restaurant. I would call them Bi- swing doors but nowadays some folks would misinterpret.
  7. So the batwing doors are only in BAD westerns? Some snooty, limp wristed, Harvard ediicated, commie historian, who is unable to appreciate the artistry of a western cinematic epic, wrote that. In my opinion.
  8. I think as long as the curtain stays inside the plastic you’ll be oaky. You might try magnets.
  9. Two dealers call me at least twice a day wanting me to trade my Subaru in, offering me scads of money. ”ON WHAT?”, I asked, “I checked your website. Your inventory is almost non existent!” ANd the Ford dealer in Moab seems so desperate to play Let’s make a Deal that I think I could get him to send a limousine to pick me up.
  10. You people actually think this is all fake huh? That’s hilarious.
  11. Another Covid sub-variant. Less dangerous but more contagious.
  12. Lost mine down the toilet. Alcohol may have contributed.
  13. Your vest is big enough to do that! Mine isn’t.
  14. Yes. Each subsequent repairman can see what was done. Mine has no repair inscriptions. Most I’ve seen have something at least.
  15. Watch repairmen are getting very scarce. We had one in town but he retired a few years ago. Now anything has to be sent out.
  16. Yes generally. Frequently attached to a broach or neck chain. My wife had one.
  17. A dangler is called a Drop and not to be confused with a fob which attaches directly to the watch. I wouldn’t wear a family heirloom like that to a match either. Maybe to a dinner or awards ceremony.
  18. Interesting. Almost the size of a wrist watch!
  19. I know some of you fellas have super nice pocket watches. Trot em out! This one is my oldest. It’s only gold plate, not solid. A size 18s Hampden Watch Company Hunter case, lever set. The bar chain has a crystal spinner drop. It was made in 1881. I’ve had it about 20 years. It keeps spot-on time.
