My birthday and I celebrated by taking the day off.

Reading away the morning with my new Lenovo Ideatab. Kindle app installed..

Going to my favorite Japanese restaurant with MBWITW and Sons.

Going for nice long walk with MBWITW..and Jak the Terroristic Jack Russell.

After MBWITW left for work.



My #2 son headed off to the range..

Was hot, buggy. Thankfully I brought the bug juice…

And we shot many, many rounds..

Marlin Model 60, tack driver that is.

Remington 597…grrrrr, not happy with that, not at all, more damn feed problems…Think it is the POS plastic clip!!

1911 I was trying out, damn thing wouldn’t feed right, jammed all the time..And returning it, not having anything else to do with it!!

The Ruger Mk II, great gun.

The GP 100, one of my favorites.

The Kahr..my daily carry


My Son’s FEG-PA63 in 9×18 Mak..

Then he bought me supper at our favorite burger joint in town…

Ahh…Now for a cigar and beer maybe??


What Next…????

At the beginning of the year our Prayer was that no one in the family get sick, injured or need a visit to ER..as we have had a run the last few years of bad luck in that department..

Well so instead ..

A very dear friend was seriously injured in a car accident…looks like he will be fine…

Another dear friend lost his job and does not know where is eldest son is…Him I have known since High School and we were in each others weddings and his son has been like a dear nephew….No idea where he is..

Garage door springs broke..200 bucks..

The MBWITW‘s car needed a new power steering pump..300 bucks..

MBWITW‘s laptop died…had to replace 500 bucks..

The dryer thermostat…broke… 100 bucks.

The family computer power supply …broke…scavenged one off one I had set up with Linux but was a back up so..Fixed..

#1 Son’s car won’t start…think I have that one covered..

What next…


So I made…

A bunch of components made into .357’s today..

Approx, well enough, ran out of the bullet component….But live ammo stocks are good..

A strange movie watched on Crackle ‘Revolver’…WTH was that about??

I so enjoyed it, when ya can’t be sending them downrange is the next best thing…

Watched 4 Brothers with MBWITW and #1 Son…not bad, not bad…except I kept figuring things out and guess I should keep the mouth shut…MBWITW and #1 were both telling me to be quiet!!

Happy New Years and I hope and pray 2013 is good to us…But am fearful..

Let them now that fear the Lord say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever. I called upon the Lord in distress: the Lord answered me, [and set me] in a large place. The Lord [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me. [It is] better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Psalms 118:4-8

The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

Proverbs 3:19-26


Facebook Saturday…

Yep Saturday and no work until next Wednesday and then a range excursion on Thursday, at least that is the plan.

Mostly done finally with shopping hopefully the MBWITW’s gifts will arrive in time…sigh…


Tomorrow, Christmas with my family. Hopefully I won’t kill anyone, but making no promises..So many liberals and so few Conservatives, but I do have my 6’4″ son whom will be there and whom has developed a bit of an attitude and mouth..He will probably dish it out if needed…Plus he towers over his lippy cousins and does not really care for most of them..

Could be a good show…

Range Day Update…

Did not work out..

Weather did not cooperate..Cold and rainy today..45 degrees and rain, with more coming…

And a small thing like getting the toilet reinstalled in the upstairs bathroom..

And working on the tiling project and only  little bit of fitting and piecing in closet and then we can grout that side of the bathroom.

Which the MBWITW wanted and I also..as it is a long way downstairs in the dark is one needs to use that one at night..

Plus the MBWITW has her bath tub back, makes her happy..Can’t stand the man cave‘s shower for some reason..

So toilet in and of course new feeder line and shut off valve installed as the old one leaked like a sieve when I tried to reconnect it.

Plus we spent time together as I was have been gone with work a lot and now this weekend she is working so..this morning working on the “project” was time together..

A good thing…

Now when to get to the range…closed tomorrow…hmmmmm

Stolen from the Borepatch Dude…

The Internet..

Have been using Qwest DSL slowspeed internet for a while now.
And it is slow and they even admit it!!
Do to “equipment upgrades” that are/were coming I was supposed to patiently wait…

I am not a patient man…and my patience has run out with them…

So today we go from “Dad! Why is the internet so slow??”
Mega loads of TeeVee channels w/ something called Hi Def TeeVee..
And the HBO package..
and phone..(Yes, MBWITW refuses to give up land line).
and Internet with a reported 15mbs over the current (supposed 1.5mbs)..
All from Charter…Dumping Qwest errr CenturyLink

And I will save money on it, about 30 bucks a month, for the next two years….

So we have all kinds of Teevee to watch…which I do not do much off…
Blazing super fast (reportedly from neighbors that have this service claim)..
So the online gamers both XBox and PC will be quieted…I hope…Or they can pay for it!!
And really fast phone?!?!

Well my hope is no more sitting waiting for a damn page to load!!

We’ll see..
