Seems everyone has a good story to tell from the weekend.

Slim are horses going on a trip? Coggins? I use to hold the horses for Vet at sale barn, while he drew blood, then pen them..

Major looks like you have a history lesson to complete

TK - never lock your doors and never get locked out.
Have to get Coggins test for the fair.

Took the last measure of the mountain sn*w pack yesterday.  The Reno Basin is at 168% and higher up, the Tahoe basin is at 186%.  Should have plenty of water this summer.  Now we just have to hope we don?t get a lot of warm rain to melt it all off, or we?ll be seeing our share of this spring?s flooding.

Morning all.

Cloudy and 35 today. One more class today and then I get to take a nap. I've worked to 1am for the past 4 days, then had classes that require getting up at 7.

Had my first solo to the practice area yesterday. I got out and started my maneuvers only to find that sometime between then and my preflight inspection, the stall horn had decided to stop working. So my flight got cut short, but I made it back to the ground in one piece, and the airplane is reusable (after they fix the stall horn).

Busy day so far.

Had the lawn aerated.  Now it looks like a herd of terriers all pooped all over the yard.

Then I went to the Doc and had an endoscopy.  I guess all my upper innards are still there, as he let me go home.

The significant other is now out getting new patio furniture.  I would be doin? it but the Doc won?t let me drink and (I mean ?or?) drive until tomorrow.  I guess the ?Some assembly required? is still on my list of can do this afternoon so I  know what I?ll be doin? this afternoon.

There's something going whacko.  It might have been leftovers from my anesthesia or whatever.  I got "?" sinstead of " ' " s, and also picked up the wrong quote. 


Got out of the "some assembly required" for the furniture, as she doesn't want to put it out on the patio yet.  However the new lawn edger is due tomorrow, so I get to put it together and put it to use on Saturday. 

We'll see if this post comes out a little more like I hope it will.

The "Some assembly required" caught up to me.  "She who changes her mind" decided to put the patio furniture out, so I had to put it all together this afternoon.  It's done and out.  However, I did get a reprieve on the lawn edger.  It won't show up until Monday, so I won't even have to perform the edging duties this weekend.  Thank you FEDEX for only making it to Salt Lake City today.

Shot my first CAS match of the year, started out poorly, but got better as we went. I ended up with 4 misses for 6 stages with 3 misses on one stage. My first stage was a train wreak, with the pistols giving me fits, But got past that and my times got faster. Not to where I'd like them, but since I haven't shot since Oct of last year, I'll take what I can get. Weather was perfect for a CAS match.

Well, FedEx came through on it's threat to deliver the lawn edger yesterday, thus ending my deferment from "Some Assembly Required".  Got it put together and tested it on a short stretch of sidewalk to make sure it functioned.  Now I get to wait out some small showers before attacking the rest of the sidewalks. It looks like this reprieve will only be for today as the forecast is for partly cloudy to full sun for the next 10 days.

Thanks for the Coffee Slim.


Currently 65 and 85% hum., chances of t storms next 3 days.


I am having trouble staying focused The anxiety from my health and now with my dog being missing is really got me down. Then last evening, Suzanne went to Pizza Hut to pick up our meal. She asked if I wanted to ride along, I declined. Since I would had to prepare a tank to go. While she was gone, just before sun down. I let the remaining three dogs out, the sister to missing one, the 12 year old blind in one eye Yorkie, a 15 year old totally deaf Maltese Cross dog. Yorkie did her business and stumbled back in. The GS sat on steps. The deaf dog i last seen wander into a Brushy wood lot that bounders the yard. I never seen come back. No sense yelling her name she can?t hear. So I went put shoes on and grabbed my O2 tank. Out I went it is dark now. In meantime Suzanne returns and I see her stop to close the chicken house for the night. She yells at me, to see if I am okay. So I help her take stuff in the house. She said she?d go look for her. She went in living room and the mutt was laying on my chair. She apparently snuck in when I came for my Oxygen tank. My wife thinks I am getting senile. I may be, but the anxieties are just overwhelming. All the treatments in the world only give temporary relieve. The dog was always by my side when I was here at the house and she kept me laughing and I really miss her. This adds to my state.
Sorry if I bored you all here. Just needed to express this out.

I have to pick up an original 1842 Musket , apparently with bullet rammed home, unknown if it was a recent Faux pas  or its been loaded a 100 + years  :o I'll try to pull it for them.

Major2 your .25 ejects, thru port on right?  I have 2 here both the Barrel tips up and ejects. You must also chamber first round manually. Both would be useless in a real gunfight. But if you were held down and could get to it. You could change a man?s religion with it.
Title: Re: April Coffee and "Pity the Fools "
Post by: Major 2 on April 14, 2019, 02:33:17 pm
Yes , ejects thru a port on right, however the barrel is fixed one piece to the frame does not tip like the Beretta 25.
It holds 7 in the Mag and one in the tube.

not quite "useless "- Could you change a man's religion with it ?  maybe if in few days he realizes he's shot and gets PISSED !
Title: Re: April Coffee and "Pity the Fools "
Post by: litl rooster on April 14, 2019, 03:23:44 pm
Yes the Berette and the Tarus both tip up- no slide action about them.
They say never take a knife to a gun fight. I think i?d rather depend on a good blade than one of the .25?s however they are both fun to shoot. Ten to 15 feet maximum

Evening all.

Rainy day in Billings. That's really all there is to say about the weather.

Went to a gun show today. Intentionally left all my money at home. There were some nice guns there, but naturally all overpriced.  But I think I may have convinced my uninterested-in- shooting girlfriend to give a 22 a try.  Who knows, maybe for Christmas I'll get her a pistol.  ::)

One convert at a time  :) 

No gun show weekend for me, but I did happen to see a numbered 1917 Erfurt Luger Magizine in mint cond.
It is 1503 (later) off matching the number on my gun  :(  the guy is mighty attached to it thought....$$$.00.
I have one original mag. #ed to my gun, and range mag. The Original's wood base however is cracked so I don't use it.
It would be nice to have another original  :-\ but at near 6X's the cost of a new made range mag. guess not !

My uncle was building a "Faux Funk" 8n before he died. He had restored 7-8 tractors and numerous cars before, but the Ford was his biggest project. I suppose whoever his son sold it to may have finished it, but I don't know where it ended up.

Local place  ESTERN AUTO ( had been a Western Auto but the W was taken off when the owner went franchise less )
The guy had a number of N8 & N9  from fine ground up restorations, to work tractors painted with a brush.
He was old then, some 25 years ago.
You'll still see a few of his passion about the area, but the old guy closed his doors , and the place is Jiffy Lube now, new building and all. 
I wanted a 48 model he'd spruced up, but it was another fellows and NFS  :(

1948 TE-20,  the world famous  "Little Grey Ferguspn."

Back in 96 for their Golden Jubilee  they contacted all known owners to find the oldest still working  one in the US and tractor shows didn't  count.

Well, the weather finally let me down, and I had to put the new edger to use.  Got 5 bags of encroaching sod off the sidewalk (some almost 2" thick)!  I really need to keep ahead of this stuff. 

Also spread 8 bags of processed Milwaukee river water over the lawn.  Followed up by testing the watering system (the sprinkler heads all still work).  I hope the grass will hold off on needing mowing until I get back from Indy and the NRA Annual Meeting.

My Grandpa, on my Mom's side had a Ferguson, but wasn't all gray, it was gray and red. It was a 20, did they make a TO-20? That's what I seem to remember it being. Sickle mower, brush hog and blade. He also had an Allis "G", the small one with the engine in the back. He just used it with a trailer, and it tended to rear up going uphill.

My uncle also had a couple of Oliver crawlers, one the standard one, and the other was extra wide, and a Super 55 oliver, built like an 8N Ford on steroids.
