    The wife is 'helping' me

    After my wife trying to help by trimming the front hedges and nearly cutting off a finger in the process, and mowing the yard and bumping the TV satellite dish out of alignment, I'm right there with you on the wifely help. But I can't fault her for wanting and trying to help. She just shames me into doing things when I don't get around to them as fast as she'd like. Of course when I have to take time out to drive her to the ER, that kinda slows down my response on the hedge trimming project. And after missing a couple of nights of her favorite TV shows (and the $50 service call to fix it), I think she'll leave the mower alone.

    How is this helping anything

    As a retired LEO, I carry under LEOSA. LEOSA restricts carry to concealed only (last time I looked), which doesn't disturb me in the least. I see no reason to give up my tactical advantage of the bad guy not knowing if I'm armed or not. That being said, I also have no problem with those who choose to open carry so long as they don't do it in an obnoxious manner (carrying long guns in a crowded venue for example), where they are likely to stampede the sheep into voting for stricter gun control.

    Where were you on 9/11?

    I was polishing my shoes at home in preparation to leave on vacation the following day when my wife called from work to say a plane had hit the World Trade Center. I turned on the TV in time to see the second one hit. I stayed glued to the TV for the remainder of the day, wondering if our trip to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge would happen. We headed out the following morning pulling our camper and wondering if we'd find any gas stations open en route. It turned out we had no problems on the trip, but we did witness the greatest display of patriotism imaginable. Virtually every car on the highway, both directions, was flying an American flag. Flags were displayed on homes, businesses, cars and trucks everywhere we went. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly, and uniformly saddened at the tragedy we had witnessed.

    Ted Cruze on gun control

    Every time good compromises with evil, its a win for evil. Yet our alleged Republican congresscritters want to COMPROMISE our rights away again!

    did something stupid this weekend

    I've about given up on air shows for that very reason. Skipped one Saturday because I didn't want to walk/stand in 95 degree heat for 3 hours. I do love me some airplanes, but the old bod just can't handle what it used to. Hope you have some muscle relaxers handy for when the muscle spasms hit those broken ribs in a few days. That just about killed me last time I had cracked ribs. You're right about getting old. It ain't for sissies!

    I'd like to thank redbarron06 for recommending DripDrop. I bought 3 boxes preparing for the trip, and of course I had to try it out. It works very well!

    Have you P.O.'d any neighbors lately? Enough for them to do a San Francisco at your front door?

  13. 1. This presumes he is elected president, which I don't see happening. 2. They can't "buy back" what they never owned in the first place. 3. Forcing us to sell that which we don't want to sell to the government would be a violation of the Constitution. 4. If ALL those were to come true, then NOPE!
  14. If anyone on this forum hasn't already armed themselves, they're probably on the wrong forum.
  15. As one of the teaching points in Appleseed says, "When and where was the Revolutionary War won?" The answer to that is, "It was won in the hearts and minds of the people before the war even started." That's what we have to find a way to do. Instill the victory in the hearts and minds of the people.
