    Hey srjdsmith

    So sorry for the late response. But I want to say Thank you so much for the B-day wishes. My wonderful wife had hip replacement surgery so I've been busy busy being a nurse. And enjoying it since she has taken care of me through several serious surgeries in the last few years. I pray that God keeps all of you safe and happy. Again thank you for the B-day wishes. Cheers and God bless. Shoot straight and stay safe. Cheers....πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

    Ants... ugh

    All the suggestions are good. But depending on where you live some will work and others won't. If you live in SoCal they can easily have a colony inside the walls of your house. If this is the case, you'll have to fully and completely nuke your house all at once to kill every one of them. This would include the full perimeter and every crack inside your house including spraying around every electrical outlet (as crazy as that sounds). Because the ants can move inside the walls and look for other ways to get out and to get to food, this is why you have to get every nook and cranny. I recently helped a new neighbor go through this when he moved into the house next door that had been empty for a couple of months. After a short period of time they realized they had ants in the house and couldn't find anywhere they were coming in at. After we nuked the outside we made it easy on ourselves and had a Green Insecticide co. come in and spray the entire interior (closets, cabinets, drawers, everything) and attic. He only had 1 small reoccurrence in his kitchen and they sprayed it all once more and now he is ant free. It's been over a year and no ants. We just keep up our perimeters. Good luck, I know they're a pain for sure. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Oh hell no!

    I agree, there's not a friggin chance would I just sit there and video this happening. I mean unless I'm in a zoo, I'm unloading a whole lot of buck shot on that wall. That just ain't right, I don't care who you are. LOL It ain't right!!!

    Very stressful December ends very well for us

    Congratulations, sometimes these things just have a way of working themselves out. A new engine, that's a nice outcome for sure. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!!! πŸ˜€

    Bre Payton Succumbs to H1N1 Flu Virus

    Yes, she will be missed. She worked for the Federalist and was a Fox contributor and was a bright, funny, beautiful and a wonderful human being. She will be missed by many people. Such a loss for Conservative values and standing up for our Constitutional rights. Prayers for her family, friends and colleagues.
  7. Smart move RetCop. Especially if this will be your first and only one. Some of us have parts such as you suggest as extras always around and make use of them when needed. Great idea if ordering the kit. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    The waiting is the hardest part.

    I know the feeling. Sometimes we do it to ourselves unfortunately. Lessons learned, hopefully. LOL

    Dude that sucks. I can't imagine why in the heck they wouldn't cover this? This is a medical condition. That's b.s. Keep searching because you'll find the help you need. I know you will. Don't give up. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    See if you can speak with a Physical therapist about it. I don't know about bite splints but I spent over 3 1/2 years several times a week going to PT due to a serious injury and another year after a major back surgery and there where always patients coming and going that had TMJ at both of the PT offices that I was going to. Call the VA and talk with them if you can and see if you can speak with a Physical therapist and even a Dentist as Longhair suggests. I hope you find some relief.

    You'll need to see an Oral Surgeon about this initially. Some Dentists can deal with this but Oral Surgeon are more prepared incase surgery is needed. You'll probably need to be prepared to go and try Physical therapy for a while. A good Physical therapist that has a background in this disorder can work wonders in treating TMJ or lock jaw as many refer to it. If PT doesn't work after a while you'll probably be looking at some type of surgical solution, since it sounds so advanced. If you live near me I could hook you up with both but we're across the country from each other. Good luck. I understand it is very painful and frustrating to live with.
