  1. Originally the following was written for Mark Twain, but it’s been modified for Mr. Waimea.


    In 1897, an English journalist from the New York Journal contacted Waimea to inquire whether the rumors that he was gravely ill or already dead were indeed true. Waimea wrote a response, part of which made it into the article that ran in the Journal on June 2, 1897:

    Waimea was undecided whether to be more amused or annoyed when a Journal representative informed him today of the report in New York that he was dying in poverty in London ... The great cowboy/bullet maker, while not perhaps very robust, is in the best of health. He said: ‘I can understand perfectly how the report of my illness got about, I have even heard on good authority that I was dead. James Ross Waimea, a cousin of mine, was seriously ill two or three weeks ago in London, but is well now. The report of my illness grew out of his illness. The report of my death was an exaggeration.’

  2. Well that’s a lot better than my story.  When I was a young’n in NY fireworks were illegal but there was always someone in the neighborhood that would make a trip down south before the 4th of July and make a fireworks run.  It was like something you’d see in a movie, guy drives up, opens his trunk and there was a kid’s dream, firecrackers, Roman candles, screechers, helicopters, on and on, it was better than when the ice cream truck came by.  


    One time a kid around the corner decided to see what a pack of firecrackers would do to a pile of dog poop, not some little pile of poop, oh no, a big Great Dane who’d been constipated for days type of pile, it was all fun and games until they went off.  It was like when the deification hits the oscillating cooling unit, poop everywhere.  That was one lesson I never forgot.

    That's funny.   I liked the part about my nickname.... 'special Ed'.  :lol:  


    Speaking of Special Ed, remind me to tell you about the time I filled my mom's mop bucket with water and

    dropped a live M-80 down in it.  








  4. I have SLIXX nipples on my Pietta NMA’s.  I started with Remington #10’s but due to the shortage I’ve been using CCI #11’s.  I can’t really tell a difference, all of them go bang and stay on the nipples.  There are a couple of threads about a month ago that had the dimensions of the different caps, it was negligible between the two.

  5. I congratulate Crossdraw and all the other hard working folks who are recognized for their dedication to duty.  On a personal note I will continue my boycott of the NFL until players are required to stand for the National Anthem and be respectful of our flag.
