What's on your dinner table tonight?

There's a Savage Model 11 in 22-250 and my favorite Resistol straw hat on mine.

I gotta move

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has shot an eight-point buck, and is donating the meat to an area food bank.
Nixon's office said in a news release that the governor killed the buck while hunting in Clark County in northeast Missouri on Saturday.

Could you imagine if the Governor of California shot a deer?
There would be round-the-clock protests at the Capitol building by PETA, hippies and other assorted scum.
Barbara Boxer would introduce legislation to ban hunting and the Governors' future opponent would use his hunt against him with great effect.

It's true, I'm old.

I was planning to hunt coyotes in the morning but the later it gets (it's 11 PM now) the less I want to get up before dawn to go.
I've got my gear set up and ready to go, the truck is fueled and coffe is made. It would take me less than a half hour to get my ass out the door but somehow I don't think I'm gonna make it.
I can remember when I was a youngster I would already be out there in a sleeping bag so I could be ready to hunt before daybreak.
I used to think my dad was a puss when he wasn't ready to go when I was. Now I understand.
I may understand but fuck, I hate what's happened to me.

My exciting life

I actually had a 10 hour day today even though everybody else worked an hour OT. I think my boss Billy felt obligated to let me go because I covered his ass big when he fucked up royally first thing this morning.
I picked up an 18 pack and a shitload of fried chicken and planned on a quiet evening at home drinking and eating greasy bird, but within 10 minutes Mom texted that Grandma Millie died. She wasn't my granny, but my li'l nieces' grandmother. But I had known Grandma Millie for 30 years. She was also TJs' mom, TJ being the only one of my old crew left alive. Millie had fed me, hid me out and chewed my ass like I was born to her.
Then a cutie that I've been trying to - well, you know - for a couple of months calls me. She's at the cantina, fucked up, and MAY swing by in a bit for some "quiet" time. Myself, I was planning on some ass slapping, hair pulling, name screaming time but we can call it whatever she wants. But I ain't holding my breath on that one.
So what am I doing? Drinking beer and eating some Chicken Barn bird just like I planned.
Yeah, I am sorry that Millie died but she was 90 some-odd years old. No, I ain't planning on getting laid. I'm going to bed fairly early, getting up early and hunting coyotes, then headed to the BassPro for wool socks tomorrow afternoon.

Strange, but still hot.

Her little dog reminds me of my Hillary.
Thanks, Eric.

Preseeeent - Arms!

My Salute to all Veterans, past and present.
I hesitate to wish you a Happy Veterans' Day because I know for a lot of you, those weren't happy memories.
But I do want to thank you for your Service and I need for you to know that a grateful Nation loves you for that.
If it wasn't for you, we wouldn't be free today.
We love you.
PS. - If you're a a Combat Vet, you deserve an extra nut-rubbin'.

Ordeeeeer - Arms!

I knew I was good for something.

Tomorrow is my folks' 52nd wedding anniversary
I remember when I was 15 I got to adding up the difference in months between their anniversary and my birthday and came up with 8.
So I asked Mom how come she never mentioned that I was premature. She got embarrassed and said that I wasn't but there was an explanation - Dad was in the army and headed for a tour in France for 2 years, her dad wouldn't let them marry but if she got pregnant then Bud wouldn't have any choice but to consent......
All I could think of was "You shameless little slut."
So every anniversary I remind them that they owe me BIG. I'm the reason they got married and to remember that shit when they write their wills. Then they remind me that the only reason they stayed together was because of the kids. Namely me because I'm the only one that's still alive and/or sane.
Then I remind them that the kids are 51 (me) and 46 (my nutcase brother) years old. Then they remind me of my dead sisters' kids that they raised and barely out of the house and now it's cheaper for them to stay together than it is to split up even though they hate each other.
Who are they kidding? They love each other and are probably still fucking even at 70 years old. After all, we've already established that Mom is kinda sorta loose.
Not that they have anything to leave me when they die anyways.....

Hatin' life right now

Fuck, a 12 hour day with an hours' commute on each end of it. Okay, a 45 minute commute because I haul ass. But still.......
Not only that but I got a discipline letter because I called in Friday so I could go kill something, which I didn't.
Then I popped a circuit breaker when I was in the shower which killed the lights which caused me to drop my beer and spill it down the drain.
So I got out of the shower in the dark, dried off in the fucking dark, then slogged outside in the motherfucking dark half naked to reset the circuit breaker and promptly stepped in a pile of dogshit. WARM dogshit. I hate that fucking dog.
So, it's back in the shower and guess what? I forgot a fresh beer. I hate showering without beer. It's like riding in a crowded elevator and not being able to fart - you got where you wanted to go but you have that empty feeling when you get there.
I am going to bed and hide my head under the covers and drink beer. I'll let you know tomorrow what else went wrong tonight.

For Warren

Warren ain't from around here and commented in the post below asking just what in the hell is a Carhartt?

A Carhartt is an asskicking tough coat. You can skin through briars, brambles and barbed wire without ripping it to shreds. I average about 4 winters per coat and I am hard on them. I wear them hunting, fishing, to work and damned near everywhere else too.
The only fault with them is they are hard to waterproof and that problem is now solved and discussed below.

Click on the link for a peek at my favorite style, Warren.

Waterproofing your Carhartt

Everybody knows how hard it is to waterproof your Carhartt barn coat. No matter what you do, the motherfucker acts like a sponge, just soaking up the water no matter what kind of miracle spray you apply.

I have found the Holy Grail.
Kiwi (of the shoe polish fame) puts out a clothing dressing and a boot dressing. Buy the BOOT dressing. I found it at Big 5 Sporting goods. You should be able to google Kiwi and find it there. It treats leather and canvas and seeing as your Carhartt is canvas.......
Apply it just like the directions say, but be very thorough. It says to spray a coating, wait 4 hours then reapply. Then wait 24 hours before use.
I hit my Carhartt with about half the can with the first application and about 25% for the last one. I paid special attention to the shoulders and back of the coat seeing as that's where I catch most of the rain.
And be advised that you ain't hunting in that motherfucker for a while and even then you better apply a liberal dose of scent killer. That shit definitely has a smell to it.
It rained steadily all day today and I was in my barn coat the whole time. That shit works.
Okay. Now you make a fashion statement AND stay dry at the same time.
Fuck Obama.

I can see the pot o' gold!

A couple of quickies

On a serious note: You know a politicians' shit is flaky when the media is down on them.

Yeah, that'll make you a little paranoid.

Too bad they didn't beat the shit out of him

Members of a small Missouri town banded together Saturday to block a controversial pastor and members of his Westboro Baptist Church from protesting the funeral of a fallen U.S. soldier, reports.

Hundreds of residents in Weston, Mo. -- as well as people as far away as California and Australia -- rallied in support of Sgt. First Class C.J. Sadell, who died from injuries suffered during a surprise attack in Afghanistan.
The residents sought to block Fred Phelps, leader of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., and his followers from picketing Sadell’s funeral, according to the station.
Phelps' church has been the subject of intense criticism for holding more than 44,000 pickets at funerals and other events – including the services of fallen service members.
Citing their First Amendment right to protest, Phelps' followers say they use funerals as an “available public platform” to “deliver the message that there is a consequence for sin.” Phelps is openly opposed to homosexuality and all government policies they he says supports homosexuals.
"We got everybody here early so we could take up all the parking spots," Rebecca Rooney of Weston, Mo., told "We did that so Mr. Phelps wouldn't have a contingency that was really close."
"I'm glad they left, but I'm sad they came," she said.
Sadell, who leaves behind a wife and two sons, was stationed in the Arif Kala region of Afghanistan when his unit was ambushed on Oct. 5. Five soldiers were killed in the attack and Sadell was badly injured.
The 34-year-old died from his injuries on Oct. 24.

A new look

Let me know what you think. Not that I really give a flying fuck but it'll give you something new to bitch about.
The reason I changed it up a bit is because I was because with the template I was using, I was only using about half my available page. This template here will allow my to post videos and shit like that without editing the size.
I'll be playing with it a little more, but it'll just be tweeking it around, nothing major.

What a bunch of dumbasses

A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.
Iran is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and the cleric's unusual explanation for why the earth shakes follows a prediction by the president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that a quake is certain to hit Tehran and that many of its 12 million inhabitants should relocate.
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media.

We won - now what?
