It is three hours earlier than your time.
You call at 9AM.
It is 6AM here.
I can demonstrate with my mag light and a globe.
You don't want to face me at 6AM,
With me holding a 3-cell Mag Lite,
After you just woke me up!

I was supposed to do a review on this ages ago.
Recently I ordered a Dragon Leatherworks Talon Holster for my Smith &Wesson 457 pistol.
Just below are the pics of my open carry. It's a sweet holster and it retains the pistol nicely.
I finally got the use of the gym in the Police Academy. It took some doing, but hanging upside
down from the trapeze, I managed to get the pistol to drop out of the holster after a couple of
bungee style drops. A trainee tried an unannounced grab from my holster. Fortunately I was
able to stop short of inflicting a sprain. Ol' fat boy isn't nearly as decrepit when it counts.
Neither of those incidents have pictures.
On the topic of the Kel-Tec Rifle in my hoped for 7.62x25 caliber, I bother them once a year,
they say no, I currently have no ability to manufacture a barrel in the sub-2000 configuration.
I have carved some wooden grip panels to accommodate a CZ-52 magazine. I intend to
fabricate a double column magazine for the rifle.

I been working harder than I ever had before. I have got to mend fences, and build bridges. I walked through a motorcycle shop I have an interest in. Did an inventory. We are short of tools, and I have to make sure they are up to snuff for the winter. I suppose the most significant task I did today, was to take two 50 feet lengths of air hose and turn them into 5 10 foot lengths, and 4 12 and 1/2 foot lengths. I have done a couple of block and tackle assemblies designed to lift bikes to big picnic tables.

Dolly Freed's Possum Living. I wish I had this book when she first wrote it. It would have saved a 16 year old boy a lifetime of grief. There are certain unwritten rules to a society. I probably wouldn't have have the courage to go the way I wanted to, but I might have done, if I realized I weren't going it alone.

Welcome To Friday Memories. A reminiscence on my past!
Be assured that any transgressions against decency or the law are covered by Statute of Limitations.
My 25th Birthday, I was carrying an ice chest, containing two half gallons of 80 proof alcohol, and one two litre of coca-cola. I was also carrying a battery powered computer, a 12v TV, and a home made test set!
I was looking for adventure, and if I didn't find it, I was pretty sure it'd find me!
Hacking and Phreaking were lifeblood activities back then. I was also playing around with welding. I was using a cheap nut driver to remove a welding tip. The ruined tip jammed in the dollar nut driver. I put it down on the workbench.
Now I had made a can wrench out of an allen wrench, Counting my time, and the lathe that I had made, I had probably a hundred and twenty dollars into that wrench. By happy accident I had just created one for a dollar fifty. I dropped a little flux, and brazed them carefully together.
Over seven years of illicitly invading phoneco property, and even a couple of stints of legally opening junction boxes, that can wrench gave me yeoman service. I gave it to a lineman a few years after I started doing network administration. He admired it so much, and stroked my ego so well. I figured if I needed another one, I could just make one. I have a half dozen Xcelite drivers of that size in the broken bin.
In my retirement, I even toyed with making some, and selling them on ebay.

we're moving to South Carolina. They say three moves equals one fire. I think in my case it's the other way around! I am thinking of taking up writing a weekly blog column.
