Ain't it a little early to be drinkin', G? (?^

Well yea Captain, now that you mention it.  I gotta hide that shine and forget where I put it (if there’s any left). ::)

Mr. SourMash - Are you on the local county jobs list?  Lots of positions come up with local government.

Took the PDX thing, with the brother, Montana guy was playing a game of phone tag, that I couldn't handle today, as i am crossing the Columbia, just south of Kennewick. He rings. 30 minutes of phone later.... Might be super hard to pass that gig up. We'll give Portland a go.. and see what that momentum is like. Ekalaka MT has a nice ring to it....

Get to yakkin'. Somebody will answer ya back! Ask a question, post a poll, show a pic of your favorite BP gun, write a review of something you purchased. A lot of guys come here just to read other peoples' new posts, not realizing the other people are doing the same thing, and everyone goes away wondering why there is no activity... )L$

All right then.  I’m self employed (bangin a word processor, mostly) and better than all caught up for the week and well into the next so I’ma go see this good quarter horse I know, give her a couple of apples and  ask her to take me shooting.  That Army below has been loaded for two weeks and needs to be emptied out.  The Browning is barely broken in so I’ll take it too.

Nothing to do with guns but I have experianced several financial woes in the last couple of months. A lot of my personal information was found on the dark web and it was recommended that I freeze my accounts at all 3 credit reporting agencies. which I did. At about the same time, 2 debit cards and 1 credit card were hacked. I was able to recover all the losses fairly quickly but it sure makes a person feel violated.   (u^ ------------------ GeezerD

Listening to Chris Stapleton, eatin' an egg, going into the shop and make some sawdust.... Tomorrow I'm taking a youngster (30 years) up to the ranch and we're going to poke holes in stuff. Of course my 1858NMA will go.. I didn't build 600 BP paper cartridges over the winter to sit on a shelf! I'll take my 1st Model 1873 and my Enfield. (because ringing the gong at 300yds with open sights makes me feel young still ) Yeah, traffic here seems slow, But it is springtime...

Researching Elmer Keith, reflecting back on Johnny and DD214... tuning the '58.. Blueing options...
Quiet day here at rodeorigs.com...

All is well. Chicken roping at the local watering hole tonight, reckon I'll show up and immortalize that with the Canon

Sam is in Portageville, MO and there are no reports of trouble there.  Our boy may be out on a bender surfing 10 High for the long weekend or just doing Kimmy chores.  He’s a master of either arduous task. 

Heaven forefend that he should actually go shooting.  M__
