    Hillary running again ?

    Jack... I'm not sure about Jimmy's thoughts but for some reason i keep getting the feeling that Hillary is behind all of this mess with Trump. She does not appar to me like a very forgiving person but one that holds a grudge. Especially for a longtime or till she gets even ( in her mind ) with...

    Hillary running again ?

    I've got a shirt with a Alligator in a swamp on it. The saying under it is......... When you are up to your ass in Alligators it's hard to remember The idea was to drain the swamp.

    Hillary running again ?

    I saw on AOL where Hillary told Trump not to challenge her , she might be thinking of running again. Which brought me to a email I received about what might of cost her the election the last time. For the life of me I can not just pick out one item. Was it the Russian Uranium Deal? Was it...

    Since we have an abundance of these at the stores today..........Strawberries are not a berry but actually a fruit. They are the only fruit with the seeds on the outside of it.

    Not sure but a combination of ...Fish chunks , diced potatoes , onions , butter , milk or cream , celery and garlic if desired. Back 100 years ago ( or so ) we use to get *periwinkle's* over at the beach. We would rinse them in the serf to get a lot of the sand out of them. Then into some salted...

    Weather is about the same here except it has been in the upper 80's which is nicer then the upper 90's. Got tired of waiting for cooler weather so yesterday I made a big pot of Chili. Real Chili without any pineapple in it. I'm a Texan and always thought Pineapples belong over on some island...

    It’s true about getting old....

    I never left the old 22. My latest handgun is one of the new John Browning 1911's .45 in the 22 cal. It's reduced about a quarter in size and a lot in weight. Makes a nice lightweight semi auto to carry when hiking.

    Buffalo Shrimp

    O Boy , Shrimp Po Boy's , that's some mighty fine eating. All of them have to go a long ways to beat the Atlantic White Shrimp that Loves seafood resturant ( Savanna Ga. ) serves. Thinking about that it makes me wish I was camping up there and slipping down to the restaurant in the evening for...

    . . . . . and, there may be others?

    Yep the same problem here with the eyes , trifocals and cataracts. I use a laptop but have it hooked up to a larger screen then the one attached to the laptop. The screen is 21 inches diagonally. To simplify things I also have a lazier mouse attached to the laptop. Basically the laptop is...

    Make America Great Again

    Car keys protruding from a closed fist are just as dangerous as your little stick , especially in a slashing motion. Like you said , anything can be a weapon even a rolled up news paper.

    Remembering 911

    I was in the yard doing some lawn work when my neighbor across the street hollered over to me to get inside and look at the TV. I was glued to it not believing what I was seeing. Then the video of the 2nd tower started , how could this be happening in America ???

    (NOT) In A Nutshell

    I get Pistachios , Pecans , Peanuts ( The Three P's ) locally. Sometimes even Walnut's and Hazelnuts in the shell . I wish I could find Brazil Nuts in the shell , use to have fun opening them when I was a kid. Those Brazil nuts required some effort and you had to be careful not to use to much...
