Wow.....hornets hurt!. I get it a few times every year and it feels like someone grabbed your skin wth a pair of needle nosed pliers and then give it a violent twist. Regular bees and yellow jackets are just annoying. A few years back I was mowing near this bush that had a nest of these nasty black hornets in there........four times in the chest.

When I first moved here in '75 a 16 yr. old kid three doors down was mowing the field with a JD with a large set of the old style rotary blades in the back.......hit a huge nest of something and while swatting them away fell off the tractor and into the blades. DRT.....my other neighbor found him and told me it was a sight he will never forget.

Well, Jay, you said in a previous post that if you bite the dust for us not to fight over your guns...OK, that's fair...but can I have back some of my Colt single actions?

Well boys, got a levergun silhouette match tomorrow....for small bore I'll be using the pre war octagoned barreled Marlin 39.....for pistol caliber I'll be using a Model 53 Winchester in 25-20......I'm bunking the last match for big bore....takes too long and I don't get home till 6....screw that, we start at 8 and by the time the big bore match starts, I'm wobbling around all tired. ----6

90+ in MN.?!!?? Wow! Nothing like an instant change in temps....snowing a month ago. My son is telling me the passes in the high areas in Colorado are still full of snow with snow STILL falling.

I hear that Six! Last match I was outta the house at 0645 and got home almost 8 PM and had to do it again the next day! Worst part of that weekend was I was in a crotchety foul mood the whole time!

And I hear you Gunny!.........I've reached the point in life and age where if I'm not having fun, I'll forget it. No longer feel obligated to show up and "support". I even stopped attending the big matches upstate several times a year. Total cost is between 3 and 4 hundred with lots of driving and many times getting wet. Because so many people show up at the big matches, you might go an hour or more between relays. Always shytty sleeping conditions in tents or no-tell motels....dirty..stinkin'...shooting in the rain.....just to have it end the same way......., tired, miserable, broke, and watching the locals win....Been dare , done dat.-------6

I'm seriously thinking about renting a small motor home for the next match and just sleeping at the range! I still enjoy the shooting for the most part but I can do without the 120 mile round trip!

Well...back from the gunclub....did mmmmmm not so hot. Did not even shoot my class which is AAA...shot two AA scores......

But......I had a lot of laughs..........more stories from an ex Philly cop from the Rizzo days when batons ruled.......another guy was telling me about when he was a car salesman and he was in the car first when the prospective customer, a woman, was getting in.....as she sat down she blew a 10 second fart.....she immediately got out of the car and left....funny...funny...

Well....drained the oil from the Jeep when I got home so,I'll go,out there and finish it up...then it's off to clean two guns and organize my shyt......got LOTS of ammo to load before next weekend.----6

Well sounds like you had a fair day Six. Me on the other hand spent most of the day with an engine running. Weed wacker, chainsaw,log splitter, quad and Ranger.

Finally took down 2 trees that had the tops blown out of them courtesy of Hurricane Sandy (7 years ago already!). Both were red oaks, the first one was good solid wood all the way. I split it up for fire wood,2nd was mostly punky so it went over the hill in the woods.

Aw stuff today was practice at the club... oh well.

Pitchy, passed by yer road on way to show. It was small, but got an Ideal/lyman 257420 single cavity. Glad we didnt get tables there.

Well, we made it to Sioux Falls and made the link up with my sons caravan.
I waved to Pitchy and 3Leg when we flew over Minnesota. :D
Man! It is flat.....and hot out here.
I couldn't get over how it looked like a checkerboard from the air. Just all squares of roads dividing farms.
Headed for Mt. Rushmore tomorrow. Supposed to be cooler I think.
My son said he had to take a lot of detours coming up because of all the flooding. Feel bad for those folks.

3legg- I have a cap/camper shell on my work truck but that would involve taking all of my tools out to get sleeping quarters- then what/where do I put my tools for the weekend?


OW- You think it's hot there ?- just wait until winter! Although I bet there is some great sledding there !

I seen ya fly over, i knew it was you because the plane was zig zagging and its wings flapping like a bird so figured it had to be you up front telling the pilot how to do things. :lol:
Now that your on the ground again sit back and let someone else drive and enjoy the scenery, i know if ya had a dirt bike you`d try and climb up MT. Rushmore.
Thanks for the update buddy. :)

GM, the Billhilly Airstream is an enclosed cargo trailer, preferably white and angular front, that you put a few creature comforts in such as mattres, ac, stove.

Haha thanks buddy. Yeah we got a hillbilly caravan going. True to form, the boy brought his Rossi 92, so we got a levergun on board for the trip.

Wow! Everyone is having fun and only thing I get to do is go to the gunclub and cut grass and load ammo......

Turtledude.....I believe that's a fairly hard mould to find...lucky you........Pitchy is basking in the sunshine...and heat......and Gunny is trying to figure out how to find a place to put his tools......EASY....if you look out in your truck, they are most likely gone......why else would Jay leave town?

Big day tomorrow........an insurance rep is comin going over to talk over our Medicare supplemental coverage which starts in three weeks. Sure is fun hitting 65-----6

Decided to go fishin, caught and released 15 trout today. Lost maybe 5 others. Sacrificed a small amount of tackle but retrieved some I lost the other day so I guess it worked out. Had to go since the weather jerks have called for more rain this week ...

Hey! A 4 wheel drive vette....never heard of anything like that.....that yellow truck is neat also. Well, to even things out, I have a Jeep that's 14 years old and "Ole Yeller" is officially 30 years old and is resting comfortably in the barn. I remember the day my son and I drove it home from a dealership in Philly.

Any "soft stuff" hanging around the car show?----6

That yellow truck is for sale. The best looking soft stuff there came with me. The crowd there is all gray hair for the most part sitting around in folding chairs.

The ARmy buddy blew up is back up and running. He test fired it Saturday. He is using the same barrel, since the scope rings/ base didn't fare well he hasn't been able to accuracy test it yet. I'm very curious as to how well that barrel will shoot now.

Local diner has a car night every Thursday, mostly grey haired folks there too.

Well, up having some breakfast. Figgered I'd post some pics.
Ones of scenery don't do justice. Just beautiful. Had to stop at Badlands Harley......needed a t-shirt from that one! Had a cool old 45" flathead in there. Snapped a pic for Pitchy. Figgered he would also like the fabbed up Tyrannosaur (bet he could do better).
Thought we drove the wrong way when I saw a sign that said "Kennebec". Whodathunkit?
Kristy figgered if she sat on the spare she could get a pic of North Dakota.
Fingers crossed for hitting the Cody Museum. It's been a lifelong dream. :D

Well, the 4x4 Vette looks ok... (except for that paint)... but that yellow '33/'34 p/u would be really fun to drive... be it stock or slightly hot-rodded!!! I once worked with a guy that had 5 '33 or '34 Fords... all different models, all hot-rodded to some degree or so. He was a firm believer in keeping the sanctity of the brand intact, so they all had small-block Fords in them. I especially liked his wife's '34 Victoria... stock outside, paint scheme and body, with a stock 302 & C-6 automatic for power, disc brakes up front, and converted to hydraulic in the rear. A/C and leather interior kept the driver and passengers happy. A grocery getter that anyone could love!

And Six, I went to our club's monthly match yesterday... finished first in my category... and last. Found out that two of our long time members had passed on... One who'd battled cancer on several occasions, and lost his last. The other member simply had his ticker give out... but it'd run a good long time...

Heck yes you need to do just that Pitchy! They all need a reunion photo as well.

OW- if ya get to Mandan ND look up my buddy Dave! Kinda looks like a younger Pitchy- I'm not kidding!

Few miles away from here is a brontosaurus make of steel- very crudely done though.

OS- If you'd like I'll let you clean up my deck, maybe even let you paint it - if it ever stops raining!!

Super nice, Pitchy! I've loved the 1911 since I was a kid. I carry em more than anything else. Get out there and rattle that sucker!

Well, great day today. We did Mt. Rushmore, Deadwood, and got to Sturgis. I won't post pics of Rushmore cause it just doesn't do justice. Incredible!
Got a few of Deadwood. Got some leverguns in the bar pics.
Kristy went in and won 50 bucks off "Wild Bills" gambling emporium. We had a blast. I wish I'd had my bike. Would love to get back here.
On to Wyoming tomorrow.

The church was just up the hill from main street on the opposite side of the street your standing on in the picture.
Probably gone now.
Have a great day bud. :)

Hi guys. I have been reading your post but had to do a power steering box on my super duty. A pinion seal on the mustang and ball joints, brakes, and control arm bushings on the Polaris. Thus I haven’t been posting much. After work tonight I am going to finally go to the range and try to shoot some groups buuuut during the steering box swap I managed to drop the box on my middle finger on my left hand and smashed the doo out of it against the frame,with lots of pretty red fluid leaking out. It is a little on the sore side.
I made an executive decision this week, after much thought and internal arguments I am going to......
Use my 35/30 Marlin for a deer gun this year. I know you were all interested in this I am sure.
Jay I hope you make it to Cody I have only been once but for a gun guy it is a bucket list trip. Hope all are doing well and glad to get my head out of my vehicles and toolbox.

BIG day yesterday with the Keystone Blue Cross insurance agent and the chiropractor......well, boring details other than I can move my neck around almost as good as an owl.....I am now a firm believer in chiropractors.....and....many thanks to Fred Old Savage for the recommendation and wisdom he passed to me about chiropractors...... I've been beat up and smashed a million times in my lifetime due to all kinds of reckless behavior. Two weeks ago I could hardly move my head in any direction....
Anyway....on to fun things.....

Mr. Jay and his family are really, truly having a blast.....LOVED the pics Jay....especially the "death chair". Whew! That boy of yours is a spittin' image of the papa......looks like great weather too......are the Colts on display in the saloon still there after your visit? :D Keep up with the pics as that's as close as I'm ever gonna get to see those wonders.....BTW, you sure married "up"... Kristy looks like she's 25 ...... and better looking. Tell the family we said Hi and wish the best for your adventure. Your family is gonna love Cody.....about as far as I've ever been from home.......you will see all kinds of different stuff in the museum....lots of Indian culture and examples of John Browning's prototypes he hand built along with Buffalo Bills 1873, Annie Oakleys Marlins, one of several 1895's that Teddy owned. Can't believe it's been close to 20 years since I was there

Yea Gunny...rain ALL day yesterday.......maybe Pitchy can figure out how to mount a mower deck on a rowboat so I can cut the front yard. Sick of this shyt.....even with the AC and dehumidifier on, my leather in the gunroom is getting moldy.

Tom....I'm sick of turning wrenches.....HAD to do it to survive...now I just drive 2K a year so nothing will break. :D

Gonna get some eggs...----6

Thanks guys!
Gunny,
Sorry bout the hand bro. I hate doing stuff like that.

Six,
Kristy said thanks. And, she agrees with you, I married up haha. Seriously, she is awesome. I'm one lucky dude. She wants to come back out and rent a Harley to ride around the countryside with.
The Colts were some dug-ups. One was nice, but it was a 7.5 so I left it. There was a dug-up 1887 too. The place was awesome for an ole hick like me. Trip of my life.
I will post up when I can boys.
We are rolling out this morning for Wyoming.

Six, good to hear of your improvement. Lot of people with old history like that around. Here is a pic from a seminar I did in Montana a few years back..

Get the point?

Got in a little ground squirrel hunting and a consult in the hay barn with a massage therapist colleague.

Always something neat on our Garand post......Fred........does not surprise me with you romping around in the hay with the soft stuff......what a guy! .....maybe we should rename you "Don Juan Savage"....or simply "Mr. Sex".

Oh well......got LOTS of '06 to load for the match Saturday.....it will be the BAR's debut. I know I don't have half a chance against the other better equipped guys but what the hell.....looks like a great play day.....

Can't believe it...I'll be officially "old" in 24 days.-----6
