    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...

    camping

    Oldyaker...... Thought you might get a kick out of it. I can still taste those Homemade Sausage & Biscuits the gal at that corner store made each morning. You had to get there early or you were out of luck. Jack..... I recently got a Firebox Nano Gen 2 in Titanium and I would feel really safe...

    Make America Great Again

    They sell Scotch ( booze ) but will not sell ammo , what a bunch of hypocrites. Everyone knows drunk drivers are a lot more dangerous. ( Scotch is booze ? Right , and not a hard ( Life Saver ) candy with a hole in the center ? )

    Rimfire Fun

    Here also. During hunting season you could make a bet that most of the vehicle had firearms in them and win every time. Besides the students the teachers vehicles also. Something else , I would say about 98% of the guys in 9th and above grades had a pocket knife of some sort on them. One form...

    Florida and the Gulf States , Hurricane Watch

    Now they say it will come ashore around the Jupiter and the Lake Okeechobee area as a cat #4. Then turn due north and march up the center of the state. The upside is it should lose some strength as it comes north over land around a cat #1 here. According to them if it does that we are in for 2...

    Make America Great Again

    The spot we liked was a cross roads of rivers about 40 feet wide. We would anchor bout 15 feet from the one bank and with a anchor out into the river to hold the boat across that area. During the tide change the current would make the intersection boil up and roll back on itself. Any shrimp or...
