Top O' the Mornin, y'all! The coffee is fresh and... HOT, the sky is clear, and I'm sure it's going to be... HOT outside. It's a good day for a nice Sunday drive to see the folks in Athens. Yeah, so it's not technically Sunday... I'm an Outlaw and a Rebel, and I don't follow convention Wink

Got a new laptop yesterday, and spent the rest of my day fighting with trying to load websites and software. Can't find my Photoshop disk, couldn't remember forum passwords... but, overall, I won 50% of the battles. So it's a WIN! I even uploaded a (poor quality flip phone) pic of the holster I just finished. It's over at the Leather Show off section.

Y'all have a great day, drive safe, and watch out for fools on the road for the Holiday Smiley

Started out hot and humid this morning, then RAIN. And tornado warnings all around. Little bit of hail now and then.

Evening all.  I got the fire banked, the coffee on, and sourdough biscuits on the rise overnight.  Roll Eyes

All is sunny in California.  Today was 95, with 45% humidity and not a cloud in the sky.  Pretty interesting day, though.  I almost had a bout of fisticuffs.  Shocked

I took the dog for a nice long car ride, to the tune of 100 miles.  Rolled the odometer to 187000 on the way back.  That's 3,000 miles I've put on the truck, but that's neither here no there.  Roll Eyes

Anyway, we were at a pond up north a ways that the state just stocked last week with rainbow trout, hoping I could make a video.  There were a number of people there, but there was enough room for me to have an entire shore to myself, so I tossed out a line and set my pole down in a Y-stick, then went off with the dog to catch some bullfrogs a ways off.  While we were out frogging (no luck, by the way), a total hipster/yuppie pulled in.  Del's favorite type of guy: skinny jeans, iphone, starbucks, driving a hybrid crossover. The works.

He could have fished anywhere along the quarter mile of free bank, but he decided the absolute best place was exactly where my pole was.  While I was at my truck to get a sip of water, he sets up with a spinner and casts directly across my line.  I was using a sinker and sinking line, so it wasn't really a problem.  I told him politely that my line was there, but that it should be fine if he was careful to keep up in the top couple feet of water.  He told me that he was going to fish where he wanted, and that I could go stuff it basically (that's the "grandma friendly" version).  Instead of running over and slapping him like I really wanted to, I told him to watch his mouth since there were some young children within earshot, that I had been there first and  if he was trying to intimidate me into leaving he would have to do a lot better than run his tongue. 

He set down his pole and started stomping over, rolling up his sleeves.  I told my dog to get up in the truck (it surprised me when she listened so quickly.  Pleasant surprise, though), hung my Stetson on the antenna and came to meet him, pulling a Cliint Eastwood and kicking up the dust every time I stepped.  The Peacock effect my uncle calls it: making yourself look a lot more bada$$ than you actually are.  I.e. a bluff.
Here's where I mention that I was actually pretty nervous.  I'm only 5'6", and this fellow was around six feet. Definitely at a size disadvantage.  But how seriously can you take someone who's wearing skinny jeans, flip-flops and drinking Starbucks? 
We got close and he stood there glaring down at me for a few seconds.  Then he got back in a sort of karate stance and started moving his hands like Bruce Lee.  Then he just says "F-you" and drives away.   Huh

So there's my John Wayne moment of the month for you. 

I also caught a racer snake, and ate cookies.

   “Texas has better sunsets.”  He heard Terri say next to him.  He turned to face her.
   “Of course it does.  But we gotta get what we can in the mean time.” He said with a lopsided grin.  She smiled back and pulled her Colt, stuffing the barrel into his belly.
   “Yer' getting slow.  Better work on that.”  She said and walked back into the house with the empty coffee pot.

"....he got back in a sort of karate stance and started moving his hands like Bruce Lee"

These guys , amaze me.... 99% of them got their advanced training from the last Martial Arts Movie they saw.  Roll Eyes
the other one percent took a class when they were 11 and then probably used the jump suit as pajamas till they were 18 .
BUT don't assume this be the case, stay calm and rational . If He has true combative training, you could find yourself in a bad position very quickly

REEL Martial Arts  VS You....they are IDIOTS or crazy trying to intimidate you,  keep some distance, remain calm , avoid heated language., remain non-threatening. look for the nearest "HIT WITH" if it comes to that...   ....
Better still back away, may hurt your pride a bit , your pride will recover and you’ll experience no lasting effects both medically and legally from choosing not to fight.


REAL Martial Arts  VS YOU... these guys don't peacock , they ARE confident , and never need to strut.
A person that knows Martial Arts also knows discipline ...

and when one of these REAL, mixes it up with one of the REEL ..."Turn out the lights the party's over"

I'm of a different school than you Major, I like to find things I can hit with them... Beat a tree with them, pick them up and try to break the ground with them, bang the snot out of their car with them... then put a stomping on them until they quit squirming and squealing. Always better than risking a broken hand throwing punches. I'm not bad, just mean Smiley

0 Dark Hundred Hours, Somewhere in the Woods-

Good Morning all! The coffee is... HOT. and just brewed. Now, you might be asking, "What the Hell are you doing up at this hour?"

Me too, and I blame the wife. She and her fellow DevilNurses are having some sort of party at the Hospital tonight, and they are all bringing in food. My sweety volunteered to bring in pulled pork, which in turn, volunteered me to smoke her butt... as it were. Coals are hot, my special rub with all the secret herbs and spices is rubbed in, and her butt is on the fire for the next 12 hours.

At times like this, I remember the many quiet hours that I spent in peace, back when I was a poor lonely bachelor.., and I wonder just where that all went horribly awry...

Had a good time at Dad's b'day party. Saw some relatives I haven't seen in 40 years.
Going to an area lake to spend some time with relatives.

'Tis 58 and overcast. "Breezy. Cooler. Mostly cloudy. Isolated showers in the morning  then scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the middle 60s. West wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 40 percent."

Morning all.

Cap, at least you don't have to do a whole pig, right? Roll Eyes

Today we're forecast for thunderstoms, which has me a little nervous.  I'm supposed to be setting up the sound system for the VFW ceremonies today.  Rain could really put a damper on things.  I don't want to be the guy who drowns $5000 of equipment...

No sir, and I wouldn't be able to. I could do a pig on a spit, but I have a small smoker, and her butt just barely fits as it is.  Roll Eyes

Morning all.

Yesterday was 72 and 70% humidity, and today is forecast the same.  The difference is, today is payday, which makes things easier to handle. Roll Eyes

And today is the day: I'll be ordering my new rifle.  I decided to go with the Winchester Featherweight M70 in 280, since they only make them in runs of 10,000 and Sportsman's only has 10 left. Shocked  Resale value, and all that.

I should also find out about a new job I applied for.  It's with the Forest Service, and it's only for the summer, but it's full time doing more interesting work.
