My order of .45-70 brass arrived today. 200 Starline.

Sat in the family room with SWMBO, a case length trimmer and the de-burring tool to start cleaning them up and did about a quarter.

Trying to figure out a good load for a lot of 405 and 500 Grain LRNFP bullets I obtained to try out.

Weeds coming up in the lawn, so stay off it.

Something I came across, written by the relative of a friend.

For your thoughts and to ponder:



How rough the way

From Runnymede of old

And through the years until today

That man has trod in search of Liberty

To reach this state of freedom won for you and me

And yet those rights for which our Fathers fought and died

Can by some conquering tyrant be denied,

If through our own disunity

We let our ramparts fall

With slavery

For all


And then we'll prize

Each blessing of today

Free speech, free press, free enterprise

And that good life, in folly thrown away

As oft the wealth of those who live but for today

Then in the deepest sorrow will be our curse of fate

And the then lesson learn, but learn too late

Vigilance, Strength and Unity

Was the worthwhile cost

Of Liberty




    William L. Bowlby

March 31, 1958

Good talking to you the other day, Jabez.

I'm just sitting here, bloated with sea-food right now.

Went to the Rideau-Carleton Casino for their buffet and to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary.

Had a big splash last year; this year SWMBO just wanted the R-C and a quiet celebration to mark the day, so a close friend an our son were the only ones with us.

Geez! it doesn't seem like 51 years..

Good soggy Saturday.  I put in my retirement papers at work for 3 months from now.  If they kick me aside sooner, good.  My plate is full and overflowing but I'm ok with that.  My 89 year old father just handed me control of the farm operation.  So there's no true retirement,  just changing vocations.  Not much planted in this rainy flooded year so far.  Best thing for strangers to do is stay off our soggy yard.

Cold and wet around here. Not like the weather you've been getting Jabez.

Got to the Wild Turkey "I Remember When" match on Saturday and shot CLEAN! (No discussion about times OK?)

Cool sleeping in the motor home, but a good sleeping bag to use between hot flashes and sweats dealt with that.

Now get off the weeds lawn.

No match here this Saturday; or next for that matter.

Going to be busy anyway, hopefully getting some building moved onto our CAS dedicated range.

As long as the roads are dry enough, the rain holds off and the black flies and mosquitoes don't carry us off into the bush to eat us.

Around here, when you swat a mosquito, you hear a "CRUNCH
That's their ankles breaking.

Have you had the pneumonia shot?  My wife and I had the shot a couple of years ago, one shot is good for life.  When you think about it, how many people have you heard who were in the hospital for one problem or another but, ended up dying of pneumonia instead.


Take care, Rev 

My wife died  May 8, 2016 from double pneumonia which went septic.  She didn't get the shots and saw a doctor who was giving her a quarterly check up for a heart condition.  Eight days after having him check her, including chest x-rays, she became ill and died within  six weeks.


Don't be stupid: get the pneumonia shot.

Grass is growing fast with all the rain.

Getting ready for a match with the Ottawa Valley Marauders on Saturday. 

Hope the road in is OK and I can park close w/o too long a walk. 

My old knees can't take too much these days.

Shot yesterday, with the Ottawa Valley Marauders.

Won the race to the bottom, but I had fun.

First mild day in a while. Didn't even rain!!

Crushed stone finally in place to receive the buildings we're having moved onto the site.

Still need the roads to be a little drier and we have to clear some brush away from around the buildings.

Gettin' there, slow but sure.
