Strolling along the creek bed about a 1/2 mile from the house.


The article is pretty lame until you get to Mayor Pete the homosexual from Indiana:

"Mayor Pete Buttigieg said his favorite trail snack is beef jerky which supporters sometimes give him at events."

Ya know I wasn't going to go there but some sh** just writes itself.  :icon_wink:

When I was going to Lowe's yesterday I noticed all the busted and broken tree limbs on the curbs. The Lowe's in Bryan was sold out of replacement chains as was Home Depot. Luckily the Lowe's in south College had one left and we snagged it. Waiting to see if the rain forecast for the weekend holds off.

I'm going to watch tomorrow or Sunday whenever the wife has time.

I kind of rolled my eyes when it started but ended up LMAO!

My hat's off to you and, seriously, I hope it all works out. The only thing I can think of is, and don't laugh, is giving up my seat in a statewide trivia contest. It's getting late so maybe tomorrow.

A little progress today. Grandson got in there with the manual pruners a did a good job.

Fired up the extension arm pole saw and it wouldn't cut crap. Wife admitted to me that she had let a neighbor down the road borrow it last year and he got it caught in a large log. Well....using a 8 inch chain to cut anything bigger than 4 inch in diameter limb is pure stupidity. It's made for trimming trees and bushes not cutting firewood. Looking at the chain half the cutting blades were bent or broken.
So after a discussion (again) with my wife about loaning out my tools I surrendered the day and I'll be off to Lowe's tomorrow for another chain which they said they have in stock. We'll see.

Asking for a friend.

I am not what you call a patient man. This was something that snuck up on me as I got older. Waiting in line or waiting for someone to do something so I can go about whatever I need to do is frustrating. Today I have to wait on the battery to charge and my 6'1 180 lbs 17 year old grandson finish spending time with his girlfriend before helping out his PaPa. He could probably knock out the small stuff in 30 minutes. I bet he won't be shy about asking me for a few bucks to go to Taco Bell. :th_rant:

And you know what I'll give it to him. What can I say. I was 17 once and tomorrow is another day. I think I'll have a little alcohol and watch President Trump give his speech tonight.

Thumb break holsters for me also. I prefer DeSantis and Safariland/Bianchi for all my carry guns.

DeSantis Thumb Break Scabbard

Safariland/Bianchi Black Widow

Pole saw trimmer battery not charged. 12-16 hours to charge that SOB. Grandson is going up with the manual double bladed branch pruner this evening to cut out the small stuff. My roof climbing days are long passed or I'd do the job myself. Very frustrating not to be able to do jobs I used to be able to do and now have to depend on someone else.

A couple of photos of the limb that fell on the roof.
Front from the street:


Think it looks worse than it is. Hope so anyway.

I'm probably telling you something you already know but when I take a photo on my I Phone of something I want to post I send the photo from my phone in an email to myself. I get a prompt before it is sent giving me
small, medium. large or original size options.
My image host also gives me an option to edit or resize the photo before downloading and posting. I use the preview option to see if it's the right size. If not I delete it and use the edit option in the image hos site to get it right.

And the hits just keep on coming......... :th_thicon_funny:

3" inches of rain and 60 MPH winds. Tree in the backyard next to the house had a limb partially break off and land on the roof. Don't think there is much damage if any at all. Grandson and brother in law are going to climb up tomorrow for a look see and photos. I believe it's something that we can take care of instead of contracting the work out. Hope so anyway.


Lifted from TEXAGS. Only a minute long.

1" of rain in 45 minutes around 1 o'clock this afternoon.

Five years ago I bought this Mark IV with rosewood grips at a pawnshop in Austin for $375. I really liked it but I just never really "bonded" with it. Looked good, super accurate, but I don't know. I just lost interest in it. Brought it along for a meet and shoot with my cousin and his friends in Illinois. I sold it for $475 while I was there.

My son and his wife are A&M Graduates and my granddaughter is entering her third year. My wife worked in the Office of the President at Texas A&M for 32 years. If I was to rename Bear "BEVO" we would both be homeless and you could catch our exploits on the HOBO channel.  :wave1:

I want to add that there's a special place in hell for people that abuse animals.
