    Good evening.
  2. Handgun thoughts

    I completed my CCW course last weekend and am considering a handgun. I love the durability and reliabilty of the Glock handguns, right now considering either a Glock 19 (9mm) or Glock 20 (10mm). I do plan to shoot both and a few others before making any decision. I welcome any thoughts and comments.
  3. Happy Birthday, taken by the wind (if she ever happens to stop by here again...).

    Winter is supposed to wander back through here on Sunday night into Monday. 4-6 inches of snow predicted. Smoking deer summer sausage and sticks today. Mixed up and stuffed 30 pounds of venison yesterday.

    Cripes, Swede. You're making me feel really old calling that tractor an antique.

    A great little tractor, Swede. We had a Ford 2000 (new version of the 8N) when I was growing up. For it's size, a really powerful little tractor. I would hate to think how many hours I spent on that one using a sicle mower.

    Finally going to be somewhat nice here the next couple of days. Sun is out and it is about 25, plus the wind has let up. Might be tolerable to go out for a walk today.

    Had a great turnout on Saturday for my presentation about my hike across the Grand Canyon. 47 people showed up and no rotted fruit was hurled.

    I get a couple of these a week. I thought it would be amusing to post these for all to enjoy and make tons of money from too!! wacky115.gif ************ Dear friend, I am Dr.Shabalala Kampala,the Former Economic&Financial Adviser to the incumbent Zimbabwean President,Mr.Robert Mugabe,a dictator who has been in Power since the independence of the country in 1980. I am right now seeking Asylum somewhere safer,because the President wants me dead because I am one of the new advocates of power change,and he would not hear of this,especially since I threatened to initiate the process of returning all his stolen funds scattered around Europe,due to the fact that my name was used in syphoning the money out of Zimbabwe as his front. Where I now need your help is that since I am now seeking Asylum,and I cannot move around freely,and also cannot return the money.I now intend to use the money for myself and my family.So,I will need your help to take control of the money until such a time when my situation is better.Therefore if you are interested in working with me,then you should quickly send me your direct phone&fax numbers,address and other relevant information to make this transfer effective. The money in question is US$45Million. I will wait to hear from you urgently. Yours truly. Dr.Shabalala Kampala.

    Welcome, Ozzy!
  23. After cooking my lunch in the woods today, I brought the stick I used back and decided to get in a little practice. I've had the Mora for a while and do like it. Starting from the left on the longer stick is a circular diameter reduction, then a knife tip mortise (square hole through the stick), a latch notch (on the back side of the stick), a bow notch (also on the back), 90 degree planes (for a deadfall trigger), dovetail notch, butterfly cut and then a spear notch on the end. On the shorter stick, from the left - a matching butterfly cut, square diameter reduction and then a saddle notch (this one needs some work). I have done "neatly rounded end" on three of the four ends. I like how the matching butterfly cuts can be put together. These could then be lashed together, for making a pack frame, for example. I did this all without batoning.
