Hope all is well.
DEMO, ecaman, Shakleford, rargentieri, Schuyler, Reaper308, OozeRat, HampsterW, samD.
Looks like a fine bunch today.
Doin pretty good Vaq. How are things in your neck of the woods?
Fine as frog hair.
I'm still a little pumped that you and Hamp and ecaman got together at the gun show.
That's just fucking cool!
wondering why the weather doesn't match the reports?????? That way I can listen to Hannity when I want.
Forgive my ignorance.
I need a breakdown on the acronyms.
I think PDT is pacific time zone on daylight savings tine and EDT is the same foe the eastern time zone.
That'd make sense.
near Seattle. It's just so damned confusing!
At least you aint in or watching LA.
What are you doing on? Is your work day over already?
Yeah, I really enjoyed the show, undoubtedly more than Hampster or OozeRat. I like going through a show, looking at everything there (except the damned stuffed toys, toy helicopters, and such shit as belongs at a church basement sale). I was disappointed at the gun prices, and not being able to find guns that I would have bought, but what the hell. I'll keep going, and visiting with everybody.
Lately, my wife and I have been spending saturday late morninga at pawn shops.
Kinda the same thing, just more crap to sift through, and a bargain now and then.
Yep, 6:30 central, work is done.
I like pawn shops too. I've had several friends that were pawnbrokers. Damned good businessmen. They all told me that their standard rule is to look over an item and decide what it will sell for, then never offer more than 60% of that. I used that rule when I was dealing guns, and it worked well for me. If the seller won't take that, let him walk. So, you learn that there's lots of room to dicker over prices. They all expect it.
Yep, good place to buy, not sell.
I went into a church sale,and i never go into a church sale,but i was looking for a cheap sweatshirt to put on cause it was cooling off and i had left my jacket at home,so in i go,first thing i spot is a leather military sling,for 3.50!!! Had a"made in USA,1971" stamped on it,it was primo,i snatched that up,forgot all about buying a sweatshirt,froze my ass getting home,but now my 1894 Marlin lever action is sporting a great sling!
In the ship yard getting ready for coast guard and getting my ass whipped. Hope things are going well going to WOO WOO and go hit the rack
give 'em hell bud!
LBC, see! going to church every now and then can be good!
Jeff, take care bud.
Time for bed
hey Vaq abd everyone else hope your all doing well been a long day here so time to WOO WOO and go to bed.
I'm gone too!
Evening Gent's, How's everyone? Real good I hope.
how you doin'?
I'm a little rough around the edges here lately but still kickin. How are you doing my wrench pulling pal? I been hearing bits & pieces, left you a couple small post's, did not want to but in.
Hang in there Greasy, it will get better. So what's new? any shooting lately?
How's Peoria? Hot?
Yea, little warm, Damn funny September.
How's SamD & Green Valley?
My blood sugar on my Diabetes has gone crazy, went to Dr today, have to go for lab work tomorrow. My blood sugars have gone way low, Hypoglycemic range.
just been teaching my son how to custom build and finish his 10/22 Ruger.fella at the gun club thinks my son is a real responsible 9 yr old so he gave him the ruger he bought new in 1965.My son disassembled it,wire wheeled the rusty barrel then polished it with steel wool and I blued it for him.It has a nice satin finish now.he sandblasted the trigger group housing,the receiver and the barrel band which we painted with milspec CARC paint then baked in the oven at 250 for 20 minutes.it was an experiment that worked awesome.the paint is a high solids enamel so it baked on like powder coating does.it came out a flat black.now the boy has to go to the gun shop and learn how to stone all the trigger parts for a better trigger pull and such.I been fighting this toothache and just helping him a bit.we will post a pic when the gun is finished.he still has to strip and refinish the stock but he will have a nice gun when it is all said and done.and all of it other than the hot bule was/is done by him.
Thank God I have not been hit with that, but have watched my older Sis struggle with it.
It sure is a screwed up thing. Hang in there & do what they say, thought's & prayers are with you.
I am still trying to wrap my head around this heart problem, I think I am doing OK with it & then before you know it I'm all screwed up in the head again. Oh well, I'll get it.
Damn, I love hearing that Greasy. 9 years old, being taught the right way by Dad, doing stuff with Dad. Man that's bottom line what it's all about. Way to go GP & Fantastic job little GP.
All I been doing since this heart thing is messing with my guns. Every time I walk by I can hear them scream " OH no, not him again, no more polishing please" Done a couple of fluff & buff;s for some friends, that's about it. Time for some shooting with the wife.
I have to use Glorias computer as our router is out sick today.. Can't sit here for longer than 5 min or so with my back and her chair so keep it short.. See i missed Pard.. guessing like Jeff he had to get some sleep for work .. WORK.. (Maynord G Crebs imation, for those "of an age")
Can't bring up spell check on hers either, so good luck with that..
Skipper, i didn't know or maybe forgot that you were a diabetic.. Do you get "loopy" when it drops ?
Evening Greg, How's everything? Still kickin here, still trying to get my head wrapped around this new heart stuff. But I'll get it.
Getting ready to send a comment about about you and Greasy.. Greasy i hope you got my Email, and thanks for the heads up..
Larry im doing good the tests were clear (this is old news, but sure like saying it) .. they think its somewhere based on the PSA, so its going to be a find and fix deal.. (the ex mil in me wants to say search and destroy, but don't want to get messed up on who gets destroyed lol) ..
Whats the story with your heart.. this a artery diease (showing the sp thing) that they have made so many strides in, or something else.

In edit.. Guys i have to get off here.. i will check tomorrow Larry.. They have made wonderful advancements in all areas related to heart health.. will check and talk later.. Guys, im gonna whimp out on ya all...night my friends..
There calling it Congestive Heart Failure. Got pretty sick here a little while back, then all of a sudden, a lot of pain & I could hardly breath, literally, could not walk across my living room without thinking This is it, I'm gone right now. This big old so called rough, tough guy was reduced to an absolutely terrified, blithering idiot in no time. Getting better every day, but this no insurance crap is driving me up the wall, & Medicare does not start for me until December.
Like I said, better every day, I get to wake up & see my wife every morning.
Great news about you Greg, I am really glad to hear it, Hang in there, "Find & Fix they will"
Have a good one Greg.
See ya all a little later. gonna go snuggle with my better half / best friend, & pop in a movie for a while. See ya later. Anyone see ACE, do me a favor & say Hi for me.
