Been aways  from  da' Grumps fer awhile, thought I'd better pop in an' say howdy !

 Shootin' a lot of Trap lately..use a 58 yo Browning A Grade , luv that ole gun & shoots just dandy !!

The hammers on my ROA's  are now low profile ..them cappies are way to much fun...

Ain't mowed da' lawn in a longtime cos' there's no grass as  haven't had  rain for nigh on 6 months.

It has been so hot here the lawn has decided to slow down on the growing. The front hasnt been touched in two weeks and it still looks great. It will be 97f here today, a record high, but cooling through the week to about 80 by Friday. Tn State match next week, wish you were all here.

STAY OFF THE BROWN LAWN

Well Jabez, you may have 3 feet of snow, but I'm still cutting grass here in the east.:P

Red Storm and I camped out at the home range of The Ottawa Valley Marauders, (ovmcowboys.ca) Friday night and shot the match Saturday.

Mind you, it was a little cold in the motor home, (-4 outside) overnight, once we turned off the furnace, but a single burner left on with the stove and good sleeping bags saw us through the night in comfort. 

Only one match left to go, with the Wild Turkey Posse at Prescott this coming Saturday.

Dang.

That gets me GRUMPY!

Missed the last match of the year around here, with The Wild Turkey Posse at Grenville.

Had to start getting things ready for our Canadian Thanksgiving, Monday, October 14

Rooster Corrigan, Territorial Governor for our parts, Yorkshire Bob and some others are arranging some winter, indoor shoots, at The Wild Turkey Posse home range.

Not sure I'll be able to make any of them. Looking at knee replacement(s) over the winter, so I'll be ready to run 'n gun next summer.

Just getting rain here although it's getting a lot cooler at night.

Grass is still growing, but a lot slower, so Stay off it!

The TN State Match is in the books. I shot a 4 stage side match and 12 stage main match in Josey Wales, 5 pistols, duelist style and did poorly but I did it. It was great fun, Im looking forward to the SE Regional in 10 days. I am not working there only shooting and not in JW category. 

Keep of the grass/snow/mud(whatever you have)or sandybeach.

Busy day here: Made it to the hospital to get special X-Rays on the knees, only to find my Doctor missed a part on the requisition form. 

Called my Doctor's office and they Fax'd a revised form, but the hospital claims it didn't arrive.

Three hours waiting around until I gave up and went home.

Doctor's office e-mailed me the revised copy of the form, so, I'll try again tomorrow, but this time, I'll bring the revised form and bring a book.

CAS season is over here now and we're starting to button down for winter and get ready for snow swimming.

GRUMP!

GET OFF THE DANG LAWN WHILE IT'S SOGGY!!

75 and ain't never been married and I'm straight!

Don't get sick much anymore since running away from California in 03.

Got a flue and newmoneya shot tuther day at the WalMart and a ear cleaning kit.

Had a appointment at the eye, ear, nose and throat place, they handed me 6 pages of crap to fill out.

I got 1/2 way through it and said... out loud, BS, I'm here for a ear cleaning not a heart transplant.

Tore the paper work in half, dropped in in the trash and  said I'm going to WalMart to buy a ear cleaning kit.

Carlos Murphy, yes I'm grumpy!

Stay off my still clear and dry lawn.

I fell into a deal on a new Grand Caravan and couldn't say NO.

I like the features and space to carry things, including the wife's wheelchair and Davinder's rolling walker. I can even get my gun cart into it when I use the van to get to matches.

The collector car is now out of the shop and into the storage facility for the winter, after a total, from the ground up restoration and conversion to HERBIE the Love Bug. Our son is the enthusiast and has been to a number of the reunions with Disney etc. and he'll be hitting the show trail with it next year.

WELL WHAT?

Slowly packing some stuff to out for deer here in Ontario, with Dr. Dr. Bob, out of his place..

Just hoping my knees hold up!

I'll be real careful with my aim, BANG/FLOPS at shorter ranges will be the order of the day.

Rain and cold the past few days. Expecting snow momentarily. 

That'll liven up the bucks around here.

Now get off the dang lawn!

It was cold (27f) (-2c?) yesterday morning for our Monthly match. We had a decent turn-out, 36 folks shot. We had fun and it warmed up to about 57f. Now I have brass to sort and start reloading so I am gonna be grumpy. Actually I like it but I have to keep up appearances.

Get off...

He He He.....70 here and sunny, driving around with the window down.:D

Just bought one of then $99.00 12ga single shot from the Walmart, what a POS but can be fixed.

Trigger pull 20 lbs, hammer cocking pressure 30 lbs.

Bought one O them X-Caliber insert sets, 8 calibers, .380, 9mm, .38 and .357 mag, 40ca. .45ACP, .45LC, .44 mag and .410

I'm chopping 9" from the barrel and adding a red.

These inserts are 7 or 8" (I forget) long and rifled.

Hard to be grumpy with this weather......

Snow here as well Jabez. (Should we just ignore Carlos and his warm weather?)

Home from the hunt to take SWMBO to the Doctor for another injection into the eye to shrink blood vessels.

Saw  a nice buck. Ran right by me, chased by a hound; right through the herd of cattle grazing in front of me.

Pard missed another at about 35 feet. He could only see the head and the horns and shot over it's head.

Now stay off the snow covered grass!
