Thanks guys. I have to say guys, the stone work was an arm and a leg but now that it?s done it was well worth it. The fire pit and the outdoor kitchen and porches all matching makes a huge difference. 

I mulched the beds today (just to keep Don occupied) and power washed the shop front. Got a couple of rockers for the fire pit area but will probably get some Adirondack chairs and put the rockers on the porch of the casita.

They come tomorrow to pick up all the leftover stone and debris and put chemicals in the pool and start  the pump

Also having the septic pumped tomorrow.

Making progress for sure. Gonna have dinner with the guy that built my house tomorrow and get the name of the plumber he uses. Probably going to just stroke a check to get the plumbing and sewer roughed in so I can get to insulation and Sheetrock sooner.

Buying a house, and changing jobs. I?d keep what you have for a while. Pay cash for your next truck. That?s when you?ll know you?re ready for a new truck.

Today I put 12 colors of paint on the casita to please the wife.  She still can?t decide. Doesn?t like any of them

Then I watered the sod and did a little dirt work after bible study. 


Every wonder about the origins of Easter? And how Friday to Sunday is three days and three nights?

Then I smoked some chicken legs and thighs

Then I pressure washed the front of the shop. It was nasty with green mildew all over the white doors.

And after all that I?m enjoying my burn pile. I have a brand new fire pit and I enjoy the burn pile. I?m still a redneck.

They also have DOT ride with CHP here and will do a visual. If they see something, you get towed and can't get it until you fix it.


I wish they would do that for people pulled over with no insurance.  Impound until you have proof of coverage. Would put a stop to a lot of uninsured motorist crap.

Ryan I?m as deep in the middle of Houston as you can get and deal with that all the time. I live in a neighborhood that is undergoing gentrification (original homes built in the 40s that are being torn down.  So we have construction all around and deal with the double parked contractors all the time.

I can teach you a few choice words in Spanish that might help

Illegal immigrants are a tough subject. You feel for the ones trying to make a better life but we are either a nation of laws or we aren?t.

Republicans (as opposed to conservatives) want cheap labor and Democrats want cheap votes

I don?t mind paying $40 for my lawn to be mowed.  Saving $10 by hiring illegals is not worth it.

Get in line, immigrate legally, learn English

Studies show speaking English in the US as an immigrant will double your earnings

So off to the right of the picture is where they have all the pallets of stone and their trailer and mortar mixer and where the gunnite/pebbletec truck will land. That will require more grass. I figure another 6 pallets. Since they weight 2500 each I can only haul about 2 1/2 at a time on my trailer since it has 3500# axles and no trailer brakes.

Found my little friend. He had an unfortunate accident and lost a leg to the landscape rake since I didn?t see him in the dirt.



They cleaned the pool out to get it ready for pebble tec Thursday. (Hopefully) and start to fill it Friday.

Not impossible but your 30.06 is a long action and the 308 is typically a short action.

Bear is right on the money with his description, yeah I?m 10 Into it with the can.

However if you have a rifle already you can send it off and have it trued and a match barrel put on it for a lot less

Add a stock later and DBM and better glass but getting the action set up is the key.


Also, the most important part is the trigger.  It takes a lot, a lot, of practice to get good with a mediocre trigger. 

IMO nothing finer than a Jewel HVR set at 2.5 pounds.  A good trigger makes all the difference.  All my bolt guns have the same trigger, even my box stock hunting 308.  I know how the trigger feels and it?s one less variable when shooting different weapons.

Once you shoot with a can you?ll never want to shoot without one.  :-) it also reduces recoil as effectively as a brake.

.308 is a great round and doesnt get the respect it deserves.

It will make a good shooter out of you because you have to read the wind.  Distance is a matter of having a dope card. 

I have a 19.5 inch barreled 700 in .308 and have made hits to1000.

Honestly, Shawn, this may sound self serving, but spend the coin and get you a really great custom rifle.  Then you know for a fact when you miss it is you and not the rifle.

My GA Precision will shoot 1/4 inch 5 shot groups with handloads.  I know when I miss, it is me and not the rifle.  Usually its the wind call that I miss.  Distance is easy but the wind is a real test.

Just set aside $10k for the gun and optics.  Then you are good to go!

Well the sides went much quicker than I thought, even with the compound angles where the pieces hit the 45 degree roof and the 4/12 soffit. 

I finally stopped advertising for Lowe?s. 6 months from start of framing to complete shell. Just have the front side to finish caulking and then paint.
