I guess I'll stick my ugly mug in here for a cuppajoe before the month expires. I ain't daid yet, but it's been chancy a couple of times of late; now things are not as rough, just sometimes inconvenient - I sure wish we could figure out just what's eatin' at me. Oh, the travails of a life lived hard, and outliving most of ones peers.
Belated "Hippo-Birdy, Two Ewes", Arcey, put another candle on yer birthday cake, and go get the fire extinguisher before you light that thing.
Sorry to hear of your "Girl's" friend, Buck; that's rough. My Condolences.
Russ T, it is good to see you joining in here more often. Glad you seem to be enjoying being re-tired (I hope that's it), and seem to be in good shape. You still in on the RCCSA, or has it gone by the wayside or merged with the Fernley club? Me, I have retired from CAS completely - can't walk a straight line, with or without my stick, and running or even hustling or uneven ground is out of the question.
Just for the heads up, you all keep an eye on the classifieds; I am inventorying all of my guns and gear right now, and will be putting it up here and on the SASS Wire Classifieds sometime in the near future. If you know anyone looking for something, I may have it; I have fifteen years of CAS collecting to get shut of.
Looks like some of you are catching some weather that whomped us here in the Desert Southwest a few days ago. It only dumped a few inches, but the way it did it, it caused all sort of hate and discontent; washed out large parts of I-15 northeast of Las Vegas twice, a week apart, and almost completely destroyed parts of the town of Moapa. Then, on Sunday, a bit of wet trundled through, and when the sun came up on Monday, there was snow on the Spring Mountains and Mount Charleston, and the Sheep Range north of the Valley. Today, it is one of those days we don't like to talk about because folks will think we're crowing.
That's our status, in a nutshell; still kickin' and trying to take names. Gonna go see if I can get into some kind of trouble.
