It's October, get your Christmas Decorations up.
« on: September 30, 2019, 10:54:41 PM »
 Once again it's time for people to complain about Retail getting Christmas stuff out before Halloween.

Having worked a lot of years retail you get bitched at if you do it and you get bitched at if you don't.

So they put it out because the ones who would bitch about it not being out are planning to buy.  Simple economics based on customer demand.  ;)

every Mary or snowflake and liberal is gonna bitched about something..... ::)

 I was in Home Depot the other day ...full song Halloween. Gourds & pumpkins to large yard displays ( some pretty cool looking stuff $$$ )

It will be on sale the day after Halloween and gone a day or two later replaced with Christmas displays.   


 Out here at the ranch ...no point in deco for Halloween ...no trick -o- treaters

we do a tree around the end of Nov. 1st. week of Dec.  ( same one ) "SHE" gets festive decor up ...  that's about it.....

I deplore the commercialization and early pushes, but I do enjoy the holiday merrymaking from thanksgiving through the new year.

Since Mrs Marvels parents passed about 7 years ago, she has been less ... enthusiastic...
 about holidays... perhaps this year I can get her to listen to christmas music...

So I try to get my outdoor lights ( for our own benefit, it is nice to encourage the neighbors to do the same and see the lights after dark) and the indoor victoriana deco up just before turkey day....

Then I am lucky if I get them down by march lol...

The tree is very easy as it is a very convincing 4 foot artificial one, with permanent led lights.
I have it mounted on a plywood base, and it just goes back into my dungeon shop till next year.

Last evening guessers were forecasting Rain thru Saturday  75%  today...?
now this morning the same dipsh**s are saying 10% today  15% Wednesday and 0% Thurs.  thru Saturday....

how they manage to get that far off the two extremes , and still predict with some pure chance  degree of noncertainty the posable track  of a hurricane in 16 or 20 models ?.
I think it is a plot to sell water. plywood & generators course the joke is on retailers, cause after the Dorian scare I saw carts full of returned generators at Home Depot.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are ready.

Buried our cat of 15 years, yesterday.

'Tis 68, overcast and humid. "Humid. Showers and a chance of thunderstorms. Some thunderstorms may produce heavy rainfall. Highs in the lower 70s. West wind 5 to 10 mph shifting to the north in the afternoon. Chance of rain 90 percent."

Sorry to hear that Slim.


Thank you for the coffee, Slim.

My 2 cents on Christmas decor. Suzanne recently started working at Dollar General, she has said everyday she is stocking out Christmas decorations etc. Her youngest son works at Garden Center at Home Depot, he said they had started a couple of weeks now. As soon as Halloween is over they will hit it hard. Out door stuff first.

Afternoon Y'all, Christmas decorations have been up in the stores here for about 3 weeks, Having them out that long diminishes the holiday for me. Shouldn't put anything out until Thanksgiving.

20 some years of retail did it for me, last 3 I had to work it.

People come in and say how bad it is that I have to work.  Have wanted to tell them not to shed tears for me because you and everyone asshole like you is one reason I have to work, the other is I get Holliday pay to put up with you. ;D

I'm gonna be good, that discussion in the powder room with the guy with the "tuned" 73 that ain't firing all the time should realize that who ever "tuned" his gun actually broke it.

Got the light springs and a one pound trigger on my Single Six  in 32 mag and it will fire small rifle primers, has done a few thousand and they all went bang.

Oh to make up for it I use small pistol primers in the Hornet, both are reloading tips we kinda stay a bit on the quiet side with because it's best because there are more places to not do either than there is.

Any rifle cartridge that goes much over 40,000 psi, it's a no no,  also the small rifle primers
in double action revolvers I'm told can be unreliable DA, tuned or not.

Actually that was common in 38 Super in the 80's for 1911 types making major.  You can get to a point the regular pistol won't light slow burning powders evenly and velocity goes up and down as well as accuracy and mag pistol takes the pressure a bit to high.

Slim uses the same load in his 32's.  A 122 CNBC at 1250 fps ain't really a mouse gun, it's a Mighty Mouse gun. ;D

Hornet the rifle primer is too much and you get erratic velocity also.

What kind of language are you gibbering about? Are you just avoiding us picking on your Bronchitis?  You do know what brought it in right? I am sure the doctor loaded you up in steroids and antibiotics and in 10 days you?ll feel better.


Coffee is up for those who Need.  Predictors say a few more days of this heat wave then snow for everyone. Okay maybe not snow but cooler air and a good chance of rain.

Just call me Scrooge.  For some reason, I just can't get into all the decorations and stuff for Christmas.  My idea of Christmas lights is changing the bulb on the front porch light from clear to red.  Mrs. Hangtree does not find that amusing.
