Mounted a winch to my golf cart yesterday. Worked on my mower, replacing a bearing in the deck spindle. Now I need to replace the deck belt so I can mow when it finally dries up!

Well I finally got the Tin on the shooting station on my land.
Not bad considering a total investment of less than 20 bucks.

Hopefully the red line on the Tin will prevent banged heads etc.

The orange on the platform denotes the firing line/hot weapon area. Since it is mainly myself and close friends/family its formality but provides a reminder to all.
The perimeter line is only a couple inches the forward “firing line” is 6 inches wide.

The wife is spending the night with her mother tonight, since she has an early doctor's appointment in the morning in Dallas. So I get to play like a bachelor tonight and do guy stuff!  :rocknroll2:

Well it was an interesting evening today. My brother dropped off the DR brush cutter for me to use this week, and I was fixing to haul off the garbage, and across the road, I kept hearing a dog hollering and crying. It would start up, and then stop. I went down the road, stopped and listened. Didn't hear anything, so I went about doing what I was doing. The wife then heard it when she came outside, so she tried to track it down. It was coming from behind the old orchard out in the swampy area in the woods. So off I go looking for which of the dogs seemed to be in trouble of some sort. Slogged through the swamp and it got louder and louder. Finally located Miss Minnie! She had crawled into the hollow part of a large oak tree at the bottom of the trunk, and there was a hole in the side about four inches in diameter about four feet off the ground. she got herself stuck in there, with just her nose sticking out of the hole in the tree!

Wife finally got over there after I sent her back to put on some jeans and her rubber boots. My shoes and socks were already caked with mud so I didn't even bother changing. Well we spent about thirty minutes trying to get her out, with no luck. Tried to get her turned around and headed back towards the bottome, but she was too scared and upset so that didn't work. My brother doing is even drive around to check on the cattle stopped, and we tried some more to no avail. We finally went back to the barn and got the chainsaws and a heavy hammer and large chisel and enlarged the hole and finally after about half an hour of sawing and chiseling, we finally extracted her from the tree.

The humidity was horrible. The mosquito's were horrible, The mud was horrible. But the puppy kisses were a great payoff!

So how was all ya'll's day?  :wave1:

As my brother said, dogs will go wherever their nose takes them! We suspect she might have been chasing a squirrel and the squirrel went up the tree through the hollow part that started at the bottom. And she probably went after the squirrel!

She's scratched up a little, but she's fine. Thanks Shield.  :th_thicon_idea:

I used to be really active on here back in the day, even tried organizing one of the meet and shoots. Ever since I moved to Dallas I've worked for places that block gun sites though, and I don't internet much at home anymore.

Also I got married and had a kid, it's been great but it does mean less time for literally everything.

But hey, I'll try not to be such a stranger!

Well, thanks for coming back and giving us an update, at least.

I know that life goes on. And with a child, it's hard to find free time.

Anyway, congrats!
