What is really shameful, is that we should even need a sign to warn people from your property in the first place. People put up fences for two reasons, to either keep something in, or to keep something out. They mark the boundaries of a person's property. If you don't have to owner's permission to be there, or were not invited to be there, then you are trespassing.

I got most of the grass mowed yesterday. Finished up late yesterday evening. Put out ant poison on the ant mounds after I finished mowing.

Suppose to be more thunderstorms coming through later today. I sure don't need more rain.  :scream3:

We are suppose to get hammered again today and tomorrow from thunderstorms. It got cloudy enough, that the outside security light came on. Temps are in the low 70's right now.

I just went and got a load of cow manure a couple of days ago. I'm mixing it with dirt and yard debris for composting material for next year's garden.

Today was Dad’s 91’s birthday. We went to Saltgrass, he had shrimp, the rest of us stakes or Chicken Fried Steaks.
Nice low key dinner that was very good.

That's awesome TXAZ!  :th_thicon_idea:

Congrats on your father reaching 91 years. Happy Birthday to the spirited gentleman.  :wave1:

I'm not Muslim, so I was taught never to put my hands on a woman in anger, or uninvited.

Besides, I have to sleep sometime, and the wife has her own guns. Being shot, would be preferable to being done like John Bobbit!  :scream3:

I hated to hurt the wife's feelings, but the tater-tot casserole was horrible. She didn't even like it either. The dogs were licking their butts when they got finished eating it! Well, I give her credit for trying it out. And to be honest, very seldom does she make anything that tastes horrible.

Tonight, large baked potatoes, topped with lots of butter, sour cream and bacon bits, grilled some chicken breasts on the grill outside, Ranch style beans and some garlic toast.

There's more to this story for sure.
None of us were there but I can't see firing on the guy based on what's in the story.

Anyone think different?

I'm thinking the same thing. What prompted them to arrest and charge the homeowner with assault is what is perplexing to me. Seems there must be more than what is just being reported in the article.

Did the homeowner take the guy for a threat of some sort? Yhe mother mentioned mental illness, so did he twist off on the homeowner, and he saw the guy as a threat?

1970 Chevelle SS in black with two white racing stripes down the middle.

My uncle had a 1970 SS Chevelle 396, with the four speed manual. Bright red, cowl-induction hood, the twin white stripes, white vinyl top, and red interior. The 396 was not totally stock either! I got to drive it quite a bit after I got my driver's license. A beast of a car to say the least.  :rocknroll2:

My money is on Axxe being a Soviet agent here to spy on us to get our technology and secrets from Vietnam era weapons.

Hey Axxe, а ты говоришь по русски? / sprechen ze Ruskie?

I read spy novels. Does that count?  :wave1:

I did stay at a Holiday Inn too!  :rocknroll2:

Close enough.  Senator Schumer wants your help, and will be calling you shortly..

Schumer can go.........ummm...never mind. I have to remember to mind my manners!  :wave1:


Axxe, Were you thinking of saying that history has shown the most-effective way to deal with political scoundrels is mockery not mayhem, which tends to end in disaffection of their base, not martyrdom?

Kinda like what happened in MASH Season 8, Episode 2, “Are you Now, Margaret?” (a Communist)  to congressional aide trying to accuse Hot Lips of veing a Commie. In the end, the tables turn and discredit the Aide.

Politicians deserved to be mocked! How do you know a politician is lying? His lips are moving!  :wave1:

Always mock them, and never let them use martyrdom to their advantage.  :th_thicon_idea:

I wouldn't own a "kit car" even if was given to me

Given my preferences, and money was no object, yes, I would much prefer the real thing. But with the real AC or Shelby Cobras approaching and many even exceeding $1 million in asking prices, (and getting it as well.) it puts them out of reach for the average auto enthusiast to be able to afford them. Some of the "kit" cars are pretty authentic in how they are put together. Most of the better ones, are way much better than the "kit" cars of many years ago.

Check out Factory Five Racing kit cars. And they aren't cheap by a long shot, but affordable for the quality of the kits.

Shelby Cobra

^ ^ ^ ^

a real one. not a kit car.
427- manual trans- heavy hard to push clutch-
no comforts like A/C or P/S or radio-
a REAL MAN"S car- not a pu$$ wagon

maybe a Pantera. i've rode in a couple of these
back in the good old days of cubic inch displacement

Whoooo....I do really like the "real" Cobras, but those cars, (and I use that term loosely!) are very pricy! Some of the kit cars are pretty faithful reproductions, at a discount. Insurance rates on a real one would keep most of us from being able to own one, much less to be able to drive it.

Brutal. Barely 1/3 survival rate sounds harsh, but then again I'm not a rancher. Is that not unusual?

So far, actually 50% survival rate. Four heifers had four calves, and we have two that survived. But there are four more heifers that will drop calves any day now. So, we just have to wait and see what the ratio turn out to be later.

We have a local radio station that just started up last year, a classic country station, called Willie 103.5. I like listening to it. When country music, was country music!  :rocknroll2:
