"SHE" made a mixed vegetable quiche.
Made with sautéed zucchini, corn, red bell pepper and onion, then baked with panko bread crumb crust.
While I'm a card-carrying carnivore I ate it, because I too was too lazy to fend for myself, besides it did smell quite good.
I was presently surprised; I liked it and went for seconds.

On another topic, well over a week ago I had added a KOKURA ARSENAL HOOKED QUILLON Arisaka type 30 bayonet to my modest collection.
I was top bidder on eBay, tracking shows it has circled around Texas USPS for the last 9 days.  ::)
It was mailed from Athens Tx about 72 miles from Dallas to COPPELL TX DISTRIBUTION CENTER.
then to Dallas TX DISTRIBUTION CENTER about 17 miles, where it seemed to languish.
It was supposed to be delivered last Monday the 28th, yesterday tracking stated "Moving Through Network...
Departed USPS Regional Facility DALLAS TX NETWORK DISTRIBUTION August 31, 2023, 6:38 am."
Now they say it will arrive Saturday the 2nd....  ??? 

I hope so, because fighting with eBay and or the seller would be a mess.

Well September 2023 started out beautifully for me. We're getting our carpets cleaned today and while I was moving furniture around, I tripped and fell. My own stupidity! Never wear flip-flops when moving furniture. Got some good size bumps on my head and leg. Sore but I should be okay. No pool today. If that's the worst thing that happens to me today, then I've had a good day. What happened to me pales in comparison to the devastation people north of me experienced.

On another note, my wife does most of the cooking. In retirement, it's become her hobby and she's good at it. I've learned how to cook a few things like salmon and cod in the oven. Last night I made Baby Back Ribs from a recipe I found on YouTube. They turned pretty good.
You need to learn to like all the little everday things like a sip of good whiskey, a soft bed, a glass of buttermilk,  and a feisty old gentleman like myself

Looks and sounds good John, Ribs be one of my favorite food groups  :D
Like I said '' card carrying carnivore ''  :D

I just finished a few strokes in the pool, I was rearranging wall hanging military cutlery in the
512th U C M adding the Arisaka type 30 bayonet and got a tad over heated.

512th U C M is my new coined handle for the re-loading room.    :)

Major
If your into ribs, you should try to make it to Reno some Labor Day weekend.  We're in the middle of our annual Best in the West Rib Cook Off.  started in 1989 with only a brief lapse due to COVID. 
I've been going every year since I moved here in '91.  That's on our agenda for tomorrow.

Here is their website     nuggetribcookoff.com

Russ ... They attempted a Rib cookoff over in Melbourne years ago...
there were about 20 or so Rib/BBQ masters competing, it was two-day affair.

A sample (2 ribs basket) was two bucks, and you went from vendor to vendor.
 Sonny's Chain was there and another name BBQ chain brand, I don't recall.
The rest were talented BBQ masters.
I had great time, but sadly it was a bust, the organizer failed to cover his expenses as attendance was low.
It was never repeated :(

Major 2, who are the 3 gents in the picture in the 512th U C M?

Removed the horrible dark finish from the grips of my Charter Arms .357 Mag. I applied the first of many coats of boiled linseed oil to it last night. Below is a review of the pistol.

Got the fire started outside for dutch oven ham.

'Tis 63 and overcast. High of 91 and partly sunny.

Good morning all, sorry I have been AWOL, I was preparing for and then attending a game convention in Denton Texas. Had a very good trip, it was a lot of fun. 88 here right now, supposed to get in the mid 90s today and clear. Texas was HOT, 107 2 of the days there. Thankfully, the convention center was very efficiently air conditioned so it was very nice. Got home last night and very glad to see my Missus again. Lifting my coffee cup to you all.

They are bullets I pulled that I got from a widow. I used CFE 223 for about 2800fps.

'Tis 66 and partly sunny. "Hot and humid. Partly sunny. Highs in the lower 90s. South wind 10 to 20 mph. Heat indices to 97." 60% chance of rain tomorrow.

Thanks, for my 03 I load 193 grain Hi-tec coated, I ordered from Penn Bullets just before Bob Palermo passed away.
 It took several months (7) but the Gent (John Mullady) that took over Penn got the order to me... I don't know if they have caught up or just filled the last outstanding orders and closed shop. I also got the Mauser C96 bullets I had ordered at the same time....I'm very pleased with both.
I push them with Trailboss, for reduced recoil.
   I was given 86 one fired 30'06 Milspec brass from the mis 70's, I have de-primed. reamed the pocket and cleaned and was thinking perhaps a FMJ and load for my Garand.

The FMJ's, which are 150gr, were in mil brass. Most of them are SL 53. There are some from 43.
My GAF skirmish loads are Lee 160gr RN with 700X for about 1400fps.
