THIS seems straightforward if a trifle generous...
Only when my order arrived, it is only the circular knife for said opener.
Customer Service was not only un-sympathetic, they as much as said I was stupid.
I know that a restaurant can-opener for $6.25 was a bit too good to be true, But after a several months long search for an electric can opener that has a wheeled blade instead of that "power pierce" fang, I guess I thought I was entitled to the miracle.
I wish I had lots of readers to give them hell for this....

For Sale, Cheap Tattoo Machine. I and my biker brothers took it off a scratcher. He refused to perform the necessary requirements to get it back. Namely, Learn safe use, universal precautions, and proper operation of a tattoo machine.
He was also supposed to submit a dozen pictures of artwork a day, until we determined he was capable of rendering a decent representation worthy of skin. The machine comes with a jar of india ink, two eyedroppers, a 5-line tube and needle assembly. The needle and tube are for display reasons only, and will not ship with machine.
Guys! you're advertising stolen goods........

Brigid, over at Mausers and Muffins, is a woman I adore intensely. I find at my age unrequited emotions to be more satisfactory, than actually interacting with people. She hasn't left any missives in my comments section lately. Probably because I'm not the gentlemanly type she would want her Aunt Minnie from Duluth to be within earshot of...
Anyway the aforementioned Celtic Goddess made a post some days back called;
.22 THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM SHOOTING
All of the observations are spot on, but number 16 is most topical.
(16) If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up someone else's brass.
I've met several delightful people that way. Even learned what I thought I already knew about reloading from some of them. I have secured myself a Dillon Square Deal B press. I thought I'd reload 1000 cases of .45. Have you tried to round up 1000 rounds of brass as a first timer? I ended up about 5 rounds short. I'm considered either rock-headed, or anal. I was determined I'd have 1000 rounds reloaded.
The last round was a test case that came with my S&W 457 pistol.

well I don't have an iPod, but I got a Nokia 5300 xPressMusic.
1. ELO - Last Train to London! Disco era, but what can I say! memories of past friends, first drinks. Teen foolishness.
2. Royksopp - Remind me (I have to track down song from commercials, or they stick in my head forever. - This was the one of the Geico Caveman on the airport sliding sidewalk).
3. Janis Ian - At Seventeen
4. Micheal McDonald - What a Fool Believes
5.April Wine - If You See Kay (I think the crowd's smarter than in 1974)
