Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Re: What Up For Dinner Tonight?
« Last post by Shield45 on Yesterday at 08:23:52 AM »
The wife and I had dinner at the Stockmans Cafe in Elkhart tonight. The fried catfish was beyond awesome! I also had an order of hand-battered onion rings, that were absolutely the very best I have ever had!

As we were waiting for our order to arrive, a family of four came in and sat at the table next to us. I kept looking at the man, thinking I knew him. I did. It was good friend of mine that I use to work with years ago at the body shop. I hadn't seen Danny in at least ten years or more. So we talked and got caught up on the gossip and such.

It was a really great evening. I great meal with my lovely wife and seeing an old friend and catching up.  :rocknroll2:

I sure hope you and Danny maintained social distance and were wearing your masks

I mean it is the proper thing to do.

Get about a dozen air tankers. The kind they use for forest fires. Load 'em up and take them up 30-40 thousand feet for an hour or so. Get that water good and cold. Then come down as low as can on a line then dump their load. Probably wouldn't work but I like the idea.

Watching the NYPD take care of their business. They have undercover cops with the rioters. When they see someone throwing something they go back to the line and point them out. Just saw them arrest four.

Watching coverage on FOX. It's like watching a train wreck about to happen. Really surprised no rioters been shot yet.
Aint it great we televise blatant disregard for law and order and “frame it” as a protest.

Where the freak is law enforcement.

Marching and chanting peacefully all for it.

As soon as shiat starts being thrown and things start getting destroyed time to drop the hammer on those involved.

Like I said as with children the more they are allowed to push the envelope the farther they will push until someone pushes back HARD this stuff will go on.

I get the 1st and all but I have yet to ever find the section that says its all good to destroy property and steal others things.

Need to read it again must be there somewhere.

Tango...I bet you have seen the tops of a few of those in your day.

the pic that you posted is some scary stuff - have seen and been caught in some really bad stuff over the years..... however the only tornado I've seen was in, of all places, Philadelphia
 
unpacking in a hotel that's along the river between Philly and Camden NJ - noticed paper and junk floating outside the window (10 or so floors up) - looked out and saw circular activity organizing and following the river south to north - it bumped into the Ben Franklin bridge, went to the Camden side and it looked like it tried to get up on the bridge, but couldn't so it went back to the river's shore line and continued north.....all sorts of crap being ripped up as it went

I was watching all this from the hotel window and thought later how stupid it was for me to do so.....had the tv on when an alert came on :  "an uncomfired report of a tornado" - unconfirmed..they shudda talked to me !  found out later that a young boy had been killed by it

when living in Amarillo my Wife's parents had a "really nice" underground tornado shelter - Amarillo has a horn warning system which is checked daily at noon (signals 12 noon but also tests the system) - thank goodness we never had a tornado in the 4 years that I lived there

As soon as they start looting stealing burning and wrecking the place ANY AND ALL COMPASSION I may have had for their plight or issue is 100% gone. Dont care nonway no how ANY THING they say can justify becoming an unruly mob.

Sooner or later a shop owner will stand his/her ground bullets will fly and shait will be solidly in the fan.

Only a matter of time if ya ask me.

Exactly Shield. I support and advocate peaceful protest, but this vandalism, looting and rioting is way beyond wrong. It's criminal.

.. I know the amount of hard work it takes ..

so true - mowing (4 different mowers), weedeating, blowdrying, fence painting, Barn cleaning, spraying weed killer along fence lines, moving dirt, fire ant killing, tending to animals twice a day, planning meals and fixin'  'em

normal day to do a few of those each day - 'twas but 83º today.....this summer's heat is gonna be tough on this old body -  gotta say tho that my Wife works as hard as I do (she looks for excuses to mow with the zero turn - sometimes she'll be out 'till 7:30)

but we love it.....

I have about the same going on here! It's a neverending battle to stay on top of things.

But, we love it too. I couldn't go back to living in a city or town anymore.
Very nice Tango. Some day my place will be my full time spot.
However.
Try two places.
13 or so hrs of shredding last Sat n Sun at the land and still had about 4-5 hrs to finish there. Cant wait til I get all the trees out I want out then the cutting will be much easier w/o all the obstacles to work around.
Today was weed eat mow and blow my current house in SA which has a large yard. Then other household chores that need done rest of day like clean the place. Splitting weekends between here and there always racing the sun.
Never run out of stuff to do be it yard house laundry etc. being single there is no one to assist either. Whatever needs done I got to do it. But the alternative aint for me. But on the bright side I did for first time in about a month get to stretch the MACH1s legs.
