That all sounds wonderful Don, think we are at $975 now.....
Right you are...We just got another donation

We are at $975!!!!!!!

So, opinions requested here.

This pastor friend of mine. He just does everything for his people. 24/7 kind of guy. And he is caring for his 99 year old grandfather WW2 Infantry lieutenant at his house. That can get quite trying some time...
Anyway, I think I want to give him my 9mm glock for Christmas. The guy deserves to have something nice happen to him. Being a used gun, would that be tacky? With all that I'll be pressed to do for these families, it will be a bit over the top for me to purchase a new 9mm for him, but I could give him mine...

Opinions?

The latin pastor and I have developed a great plan to now bless three families!

So first is the two girls who would not get Christmas if we had not donated. Talking to him about their needs, we decided on a $150 gift card for each girl from either Target or Walmart.

Second, and you just have to hear these stories to believe them. Second is a family who are from guatemala, who were actually somewhat wealthy down there. Some years ago the cartel came knocking and asked $300K extortion money of the father would get to watch his wife and children murdered! You getting this??? I mean who here ever sees the likes of something like this?

So they literally bailed out and made a run for the border, and snuck into the US some years ago. Having nothing the family started working every job they could find. They had two fairly well educated boys, one of which who was close to graduating high school. The boys entered our school system here in Northern KY which is one of the top systems in the tuck, and not only assimilated, but rose to the top of the class. The eldest actually won a full ride to the University of Kentucky where he is graduating this year magna cum laude with an engineering degree.

That family has sown everything into that boy and their basic needs to the point where they have no car and very little else.
We are going to give them $300 or more in cash at a special service Christmas eve at 1600 at our church.

Finally we have a family with a single mom. Her story is not a good one, She was brutally raped for quite a while by a local drug lord, but managed to escape with her two kids. She had a car, which just broke down, and can barely put together enough money for food. So we are going to jump in on her with what we can. I'd like to repair her car, up to say $500, and give her some money as well or Kroger gift cards, but we can afford $300 or a bit more.

So any money that comes in in these last few days before Christmas is going directly into god loving, devout Christian families. Yes all of these people are active and actually serve when they can at our church. Jesus wants us to sow into the "least of these" whether they be children or the poor. Dude count me in!

And finally, the pastor, the ex- Mexican military guy who is owed $12,000 in back pay from his california based company was just told the company is closing its doors and he will not get paid. He has some bills and he wanted to buy a gun to protect his family with...Well, come heck or high water, we are going to do that. If I don't get it in donations, I'll do it myself. No not looking for any acknowledgement or credit or anything. Not like that. I am personally blessed, I see a ned and I am going to fix it. We are real men. We don't sit idly by when we know things that we can do, need to get done!

Father God, forgive me for being such a poor example and a sinner. USe what you can of me to serve those you have given me knowledge of. Bless them and see to the needs of your people, in the precious name of Jesus, Amen

The keep the gun out of my store was well within his rights, and I would have respected that (Possibly). However funding LBGT and CAIR = NO MORE LEVIS

I wear eddie bauer and wrangler along with TSC work brand jeans. And of course my beloved 5.11 stuff. Those companies can't even spell LBGT!

Levi Strauss

Dear Customers,

The debate in the U.S. over gun safety and gun rights is as complex as it is divisive. As a former army officer, a father and business leader, I?ve heard the arguments from all sides. And, as CEO of a 163-year-old company whose products and presence rest at the intersection of culture and community in more than 110 countries around the world, I feel a tremendous responsibility to share our position on the issue, now, at a time when clarity is paramount.

Providing a safe environment to work and shop is a top priority for us at Levi Strauss & Co. That imperative is quickly challenged, however, when a weapon is carried into one of our stores. Recently, we had an incident in one of our stores where a gun inadvertently went off, injuring the customer who was carrying it.

So, while we understand the heartfelt and strongly-held opinions on both sides of the gun debate, it is with the safety and security of our employees and customers in mind that we respectfully ask people not to bring firearms into our stores, offices or facilities, even in states where it?s permitted by law. Of course, authorized members of law enforcement are an exception.

A situation like this is complex.

First of all most of us do not shop at Levis Strauss stores. Rather, we buy their products at a host of other venues. So would this position that this CEO has taken even affect our jean buying habits at all?

Secondly, as a CEO, no doubt heavily counseled by his legal staff, his decision may be a bit more than a little affected by that influence. Most conservative course of action and all that risk mitigation nonsense.

Another issue is perhaps the toughest for we, real men, to swallow, giving in to the liberal notions of safe places and worse. I mean hippies buy as many (Possibly more) jeans than we do, so could he be trying not to alienate a slice of his market pie.

Finally, for whatever reason, it is the right of any business to allow or not the carry of personal defense weapons.

Each of us has to decide where we stand on this. For me, it does not rise to the level where I am concerned except that he may be kowtowing to  liberals and their nonsense

Lastly, I sealed up all the gaps up in the roof and screwed down the vent insect screen. At this point the thing is buttoned up pretty well and should be nearly bug proof.

It is now completely done and ready to get loaded, and hauled down to the farm

Yea, its a bit dusty, but it will get cleaned up after we bolt it down on the foundation over the boy's summer digging project.

The vent pile was sealed up with silicone as was all the seams around the box and floor. Then the outside was capped and pumped full of poly foam.

No pics, but obviously I pulled the excess foam off

Previous life, after flying the traffic pattern for a few hours while listening to this divine female voice, later that night my crew dogs drug me out for a night on the town.

I just counted that $50, thought it was $900......?

Anyhow, the intel I was referring to was those girlies. :wink:
You're gonna love this!

First of all, that mom and the two girls are gone, as in moved out and back in with her former boyfriend...

Is it any wonder to anyone why this woman's life is such a mess??

And how is that good you ask? Well here it comes...

Way back when I was thinking about who to bless with your gifts, one possibility was to sow into some mexican family in our latin church. So today I am driving around thinking about soft clothes, cookies, warm sheets, the US Air Force and other girly things when I called my Frau to see if she discovered anything more on the candidate girls. That's when she told me the strange news.
So I got into that mood where you are sort of thinking and praying, sort of just being with God in your thoughts and right there I got the urge to call Pastor Rene, pastor of that Latin service and a good friend of mine. A veteran of the Mexican Army serving in some bad spots, he is the real deal.

I start by harassing him and complaining about Mexicans, something I do to get him fired up, but he was having no part of it. So I asked him straight up, "Rene, you have any kids or families in mind who are in a hurt this Christmas?" He immediately said he did, and I inquired. A mexican woman who was with a US Army veteran had to leave him for her own safety. They had a couple girls together. He had served in Iraq and Afghanistan and was falling apart as a result of PTSD. He had become abusive so she took the girls and left. She had just confided in him (I had the feeling she was right there with him) that she had enough money for food and the essentials, but nothing for the girls, and if he knew anyone who could spare a couple gifts, please share her story with them.

Gentlemen, we have, well, we have whatever Shawn says we have I guess, and we're gonna give every last red cent to these people. I committed to carrying them and we will do it in secret like always. So, Rene is gathering the details about the young ladies, 7 and 10 I think??? We will act on that information.

So Rene and I will go shopping for these ladies after we figure out what they need, and give them a card for food at some local supermarket.

You boys are kockin' it out of the park once again!

130k on the odometer for a new to me vehicle, we have had it al little over two months to replace the previously wrecked 2011 traverse.

It?s been a really sound vehicle thus far

Took it in for an alignment and tire rotation before our Christmas trip to San Francisco area, new struts on the front and sent on our way.

Took my kids to daycare early and hear a rubbing/grinding sound from the rear of the vehicle as I slowed to exit the freeway.  The back left wheel and rotor are very warm while the other three are cool to the touch.

Suggestions before I drop it at a mechanic again?

Folks, Sgt John is an ex-Marine Sergeant (Jar head for the Armee folks here, Big scary guy to all the Air Force girl scouts! ;-)

Met him on the phone yesterday after Tex made the subliminal suggestion that I immediately knew what he was tryin' to do, thing.
Anyway, I went off on the hunt and found the Black Ace Tactical site, read, then called and John answered.

He is a real deal shooter and can likely answer those what it questions better than this helo pilot could, so ask him. And check out his site and if so inclined order from him so we bless a brother.
