Cue the McGyver music!

I finally got tired of those cheap ass plastic ear clips.  I took a large paper clip, twisted it around to resemble the old clip.  It works nicely.  I wish I had done this years ago.  I took this pic before I covered the wire with heat-shrink tubing.

Hell-low Bay-Bee!

This IS the Big Stopper!

Actually mine has a modernized stock but .54 caliber covers up a lot of sins.  With a big ass bullet as thick as a AA Battery, and half as long, this beast makes a nasty noise outdoors.  I picked it up one day, intending to return it to the gun safe before answering the door.  Both dogs stopped barking and made for the far end of the house.  I used that lesson to train the dogs to get scarce from the front door if I, or Dad, picks up a gun.  Word spread, and I think no one is interested in ever staging a break-in or home invasion at our

I also have the only dogs I'm aware of, that will willingly wear ear plugs!

I'm lying here

wielding a sick looking tennis racquet.  It cost me $2.99 at Harbor Freight.  It carries two D-cells in the handle,  and it has a sweet snap when I swing it through the path of a fruit fly.  I have been stalking the kitchen area in hopes of blasting a small swarm of them.  They may have already fled when I have placed marigolds around.  I have been fighting this invasion for a couple of weeks.  I suspect the roomie is actually feeding them.  She's not being too helpful in not leaving food loose for them.
