Somewhere, some Navy, Trident wearing guy is telling some story about some Special Army pilot guys who take them on special rides through the air, involving physics defying stunts involving trees, bridges, canyons, power lines, flying through hangers........basic lunch inspection maneuvers I'm sure! LOL-  ???
Or about the Chinook pilot who had one of them hanging on a winch cable about 50 beet below the aircraft, who flew over to a nearby waste treatment plant and tea bagged them first in brown, then in rinse!

Oooohh, no -puking and dry heave sounds being made just reading that!  That's gotta to be your worst prank, I'm hoping!

I'm operating on the "shut up and eat it" theory engrained by my Grandfather!

Then off to a Board of Education Meeting where I'll try and keep it all down.....if they served cocktails, it would be far more entertaining!

No .50 Barrett either!? 

Don't want to "carry" one, but talk about fun to shoot- not much for a hunting round, unless there's a REFER Truck, full of sides of beef and you want the truck to just sort of STOP rolling down the road all of a sudden so you can acquire some!

XDs to be exact, in .45

Have XDM .45 too, as my SHTF side arm and will be adding a Glock at some point, just because I like shooting them.

Went with Springfield Arms as a "bang for the buck" at the time, simplicity of takedown, reliability and how well I shot them.  Glock 36 was stove piping on me - was told it was "limp wristing", but shot it side by side with the XDs and it never once stove piped; how could it limp wrist one and not the other?  Read on-line several places about that issue with the G36 so went with the XDs. :)

My reply based upon NO first hand knowledge other than supposition - AR10 as I'm more of a fan of "one and done" and the ability to reach out further than what I might face coming at me.  Same rational as to why my CCW is  .45 ACP - connect with center mass and the target isn't going to still be standing.

So interesting tie in with previous topics regarding Gold and it's low price, WMF and America in cahoots to manipulate Golds price to shore up the Dollar.  On the above mentioned show on History Channel last night, there's "Mancow" (the brother of the car salesman giving away guns that the video clip of him treating the reporter to a good mind bending experience) basically expressing his observations and views on the ARTIFICIALLY LOW PRICE OF GOLD and how China, Russia, England etc. are snatching it up, especially after a HUGE sell-off BY the good ole' USA?  There was mention of previous  sell-off right after we went off the Gold standard under Nixon.......probably explains the movement of armored warfare from Ft. Knox......nothing left to guard maybe? :o

Question for you on your land Don- do you own the mineral rights?  Was one of the things a friend of mine in Ohio said I'd need to check into, were I to retire to the Blue Grass state- suppose it would include caves/caverns too?

Okay, let's scratch our souls and our grey matter at the same time:

You're supreme authority of the US for a day, and whatever law you come up with gets passed and becomes reality, but you can only pick one, and it needs to be faith based- what do you do?

Mine-

In order to collect Welfare, you and every dependent you claim, must attend church together every week.  (Church, Synagogue, Mosque [outta wedlock mothers last there?] etc.).   Don't want to, don't collect- kids don't want to, no credit for them.

Glad you're okay- my father refers to that as an "underwear puckering moment" which I can say I've experienced plenty.  One had the race car trailer come off the hitch and had to use the truck bumper to stop it at speed.  Needless to say, since then, I'm the only one who attaches a trailer that I'm going to tow.

Agree with you about Pole Barn option, with second favorite being small home with wrap around porch.

Great photos of "Ranger" and her "handler"; thanks for sharing!

"Up late with Ranger....."

Good thing puppies are cute, cause they're a PIA!  My current one has tested my resolve more then all others combined!

Not seeming to get the "hold it" part of the program at 4am, so in trying to facilitate crate training protocol, I'm getting up!  Then, since he's up, he wants to play!  Scared crap outta me this am when I held him still cuddled against me, he went limp after struggling- he just gave in like I flipped a switch; thought I killed him or did the sleeper hold!

Put yourself, pup and sled dog in small room and work it out, asserting YOU are the Alpha of the pack.  I've had to do that on occasion with mine and guest dogs of friends that I've taken care of.  Had as many a 4 intact males loose and free in the house together without issue, but I'm always monitoring.  Lifting by the collar shoulder high with some firm affirmations and stern incantations including "NO" and putting them down to try again, lays a firm foundation of what's not tolerated when you "speak" to them to knock it off (adult dogs).  Puppies I leave for on the floor and rattled them by the collar with same incantation.  Adult dogs off the ground takes away their security, pack status etc.

When you got the pup and each as individuals getting along, introduce all three and be ready to repeat the process as needed.  Sometimes that third element can throw a wrench into the dynamic so keep on your toes- especially if you toss a female in the mix; they can be the worst, hence the name they're reffered to by in the dog world!

Have fun- beautiful pup; the Mrs. Six pulled one over on you it seems!  Good for her!

As thick as those woods look, you might consider contracting with a Forestry expert and reputable timber company to come in generate some return on investment to restore the health of your woods, before you start your sustainability improvements and bug-out work.  That and a good controlled burn would turn the place into Eden of sorts.

These are wonderful for all-around tires, cruising mulch beds, and towing my 8,000lb camper etc.  not sure about mud, as that makes a white truck look like it's totaled.....

So sitting here at the Socialist.....er' I mean Illinois Education Association Representative Assembly and put before us was a motion to eliminate an Invocation from the opening of the Assembly, by any religious figure......this year was a priest, previously there have been pastors, rabbis etc.

The Political Correct crowd wants to deny recognition of any deity as well as denying others recognition of such (Christ for me) as their embrace of Religious Freedom; er' freedom FROM religion I guess.

Well, upon being called for a VOTE, was DEFEATED!
