Sounds like a good time. I have one of the Nagants and I like it. It feels solid to shoot to me. The weight feels right to me and I'm normally able to group my shots fairly tightly. Just don't shoot the green shell casings out of it. They always got stuck in mine... Would have to push a rod down through the barrel and pop them back out of the chamber.

How long are you going camping for?

Hey. I saw a mouse run across the floor last week. My little sheltie verified the path as she ran over there to also investigate. So far I have caught 5 mice. Dollar store traps are good at feeding the mice....Walmart brand gets one every time. I can generally smell a mouse in a house. These guys didn't leave droppings or stink. Caught us by surprise.
The hunt continues. Going back to Walmart for more traps.

You never know just when your going to get hit. We spent 150 bucks in pest control getting rid of roaches one of my Ranger boys brought to our house last year. 1s time for roaches. We tried over the counter stuff. Then went for the big bucks methods. We don't like bugs or mice. Our house is clean. Surprised us!

Heading out this week to go camping with seom friends. It's gonna be a hot week, I'll be glad to have the lake close by.

That much firepower would make Hillary wet herself.

Had our first meeting of the new year tonight after the back to school bash last Sunday. Had 13 boys RK through ER (one regular couldn't come tonight), 5 Rainbows, and 20 American Heritage Girls. One of our ER's aged out last spring and is back as an Assistant Commander this fall.

It was a mad house with that many kids in our meager facilities. We desperately need more space!

Looking forward to a good year. I announced our Tool Craft merit camp for Friday night and Saturday on the Labor Day weekend. I'm just going to hold the camp in my front field at the house. It's close and easy. The boys can fish in the pond Friday evening of they want to to try to catch dinner. It shouldn't be too hard in my pond though. I have literally caught bream on a dry hook before. Put some bread on there and you can eat good!

We're planning on starting with Firecraft for our weekly meetings because only a few of our boys have done that merit. We plan on doing Primitive Snares after that, which should conclude by the end of October. We plan to do a camp in November so the boys can try out catching small game. By then we should have had a frost so eating small game should be just fine.

After that we'll start doing some indoor type merits when the weather gets colder. All in all it was a good night. Glad to be back in the swing of things.

Just back from a trip to Seattle. That area has really gotten congested over the last few years. Wasted hours everyday trying to get from one place to another.

Saturday we drove to the ocean just to get away from everybody. The temp went from 95 in Seattle to 59 on the beach. It was very foggy walking along the coast. I had noticed a state oil spill vehicle in the parking lot and discovered why. An 80-foot fishing trawler had washed up on the sandy beach earlier that morning, and the breakers were pounding it. Sad to watch. Heard that the captain didn't have an anchor or insurance. He was drunk by the time rescuers got him off.

Obama-nomics? Few industries are healthy. There was a morning editorial that spoke of the elite, too-big-to-fail outfits that recovered all their losses quite some time ago. But the middle class and poor are still in deep deficit territory. We, The (little) People. The only clout we have is in November, but will we use it?

I figured he lost power and got pushed ashore. He couldn't hold in place without an anchor (previously lost and not replaced?) and was helpless. At 3 am, it's tough to get AAA out there in time.

38 degrees outside. I'm thinking about the young couple that is using my 5th-wheel trailer to live in while looking for an apartment. Been 3 weeks now. Do I go over there and show them how to turn on the heat? Or do they need a little motivation to find a place? Decisions, decisions. um

That's harsh! Laughing

So I'm sitting in the parking lot of Office Depot waiting on the locksmith... wansntme2 I never do it, but I did today. Locked the truck and walked away with the keys on the center console. At least it's a pleasant day instead of 100 degrees out.

Wait till it starts freezing outside to protect your investment. HA! They may just latch onto that 5th wheel and you will have to take the door off of it to paint it for a week or two. It's amazing how long folks will let us house, and feed them.... as long as we will allow it.

I generally put in a cut off date or a expected time of return when I loan stuff out. Been burnt so many times it's expected now.

Get a magnetic key holder and stick it to the underside of your vehicle. It has saved me many times. I have the same thing on the company truck and I carry 2 sets of keys for it.

My car has as credit card size key holder. The spare fits inside the cc holder. The holder has a chip in it. You insert key with cc nearby it and it will turn back on. Easy to carry the spare in your wallet. 

Bruce, you wait too long they'll have squatters rights lol!

What brought that about?

You know, when you get tired of all that arctic weather and you kick the vagranta out of the camper, you can always load up that camper and head towards SC. We could use another good teacher at our school here. I even have a place that you could park too! Wink

The end of my first teaching retirement came about when the person that replaced me didn't work out. My most recent attempt ended when half the HS staff moved out of the area. Figured I could help out for a couple more years, then hang it up for good.

I might survive the south if I could "summer" in the Rockies. I don't do humidity.

Was Colin Kaepernick radicalized? The SF 49er was raised by white adoptive parents, and has Bible quotes tattooed on his arms. But since he began dating an Egyptian activist, it looks like he's gone to the dark side.

You've heard about his refusal to stand for the national anthem. But did you know he supports BLM, Muslim holidays, and the Black Panthers, and wears Malcolm X apparel? SF is stuck with his salary this year, whether they play him or not. No other team wanted to trade for him during the off-season. Might be time to consider releasing him as a PR move for the organization. More and more players are speaking out against him, and he's the 3rd string QB anyway. Poison.

Have you seen the socks he wears during practice? A pig cop is on them. The jerk is dead to me. My wife bought his jersey a few years ago to wear when watching games at our son's house. Now it's going to be burned. fire
