DEROS is the date expected to return from overseas.
** Announcement – I am not running for president in 2024. If nominated, I will not run. If elected I will not serve…
** “We could say the government spends like drunken sailors, but that would be unfair to drunken sailors because the sailors are spending their own money.“ -Ronald Reagan
** Tucker showed new footage that proved Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick could not have been killed by Trump supporters on January 6th. There is no surprise there, but it’s nice to see the video proof that Congress had been hiding.
** Galatians 5:19-21 ESV Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
** Dying societies accumulate laws like dying men accumulate remedies.

The Most Important Meal?
Works bagel, Swiss cheese, bacon, hard egg, avocado & hot sauce.
They are curious
North and east of the White Wolf Mine at a lower elevation where the snow didn’t accumulate.
M7 Priest, maybe in Korea?
“Super Rabbit” is a good name.
Yes, an M-7 and I think, Korea
Good use of the Medium M3/M4 basic running gear and layout. Very successful, very mobile.
Often wondered why they never made a fullly enclosed version as an APC, but at the time the APC was the M3/M5 halftrack. One of those makes sense now but not then things, an APC version I mean.
Pop out the 105mm and toss in a Brit 25pdr howitzer and you get a ‘Bishop.’ Yet another weird one, why? The US 105mm was far superior and we were giving shells away for practically free.
Didn’t the Canadians make a Ram APC, sort of the same thing?
I think the 25 pounder Bishop was a “British content” thing, sort of reverse not invented here.
Oh, and good travels!
For now. Waiting for the next pandemic announcement come election time.
“will not inherit the kingdom of God”
The trick is to convince the unbeliever that it is a binary choice.
That there is a reward or a punishment awaiting at the end of the song.
Straight is the gate and narrow is the way – and few there be that find it.
So right Ed.
“A man cannot serve two masters”, or as my dad put it “you can’t have a foot in two canoes.”
But you can have all your guns in both.
Just don’t tip, or if one tips you still have the other…just in case you see a sea monster.
i saw that the cartel, allegedly, snatched 4 americans in ol mexico. since they are offering no details on them i would put money on that they are not “tourists buying medicine” as described. but i like one senator’s take on it: ” close the border and terminate them with prejudice.” those americans, whatever they were doing, are likely long dead already. be careful out there.
Most cartel kidnappees are business snatches. The bad guys (often the State Judicial Police) don’t get paid if the ransom isn’t delivered and there is usually proof of life. I’ve handled some of these negotiations in Mexico. Often the people snagged have kidnap insurance. Sometimes it’s an insurance scam.
I will be in Mexico for part of the time.
Yer killing me with the delectable breakfast fare…as I have my cereal and Skippy slathered toast.
Listened to Tucker last night. Half of America knew it was all a bald-faced lie, now we know for sure. Prison for Pelosi and McConnell and a pile of others? Never happen under this tyrannical regime of criminals, but it should.
Pronghorn hunters north of me on one rise, scoping, seeing nothing. Pronghorns over the the next rise out of sight. Always made me laugh.
Antelope are clever but are curious enough to get themselves into trouble.
The Swamp protects its own.
I think they can see blaze orange from a ways off.
I hope this stays around for a few more hours:
Probably some idiot’s been feeding them. You can train a lot of wild animals to take food from your hand w/o much effort.
Deer are not smart, or wily, or elusive… or even particularly skittish, a lot of the time. In acorn season, they often stand around in the parking area of the yard while I drive up, and I have to stop the car, get out, and shoo them off before I can park.
Antelope are tasty.
Yes. The grazers taste better than the browsers (like deer).
I’ve hunted antelope in past years. Your shot may be a long one, but then again I’ve shot them as close as about 40 yards. Curiosity has killed more pronghorns than it has cats,
Off topic, but has anyone else watched Boatrawker’s parody video called “Eye of the Pfizer”?
That bagel looks good, except the avocado… I know that is a Cali thing, but I’ll pass…LOL Travel safe!
I agree. Green goo on my food has no appeal.
What’s with you, middle-American avocado haters?
Avocados, besides being slime green looking, are r-e-a-l-l-y fattening…gotta protect the temple. (Now, where’d I put that bag of Funyuns….ahh, hiding behind the Pork Rinds.)
Guacamole makes corn chips taste better
I’ll concede your point, but only fresh Guac.
fresh snot, stale snot…
Fresh snot WITH Green TABASCO! Kills all, adds flavor. heh
Avocado fats are good for you.
I saw what you did there with that very Shermanesque comment.
Pro tip for finding antelope: Head west of Casper on US26 and turn left on Zero Road. Continue west on Zero until you have to slow your speed to 10 MPH or less to avoid running down herds of speed goats attempting to commit suicide by automobile – yours! You have been warned.
Dad used to drive us across the old bridge at Matamoros when I was a kid, park about anywhere and walk into the mercado, safe as lambs. Same at Reynosa or Progresso. Today? Oh HAIL no! No passports required for re-entry, either, usually just got waived right thru without checks. “Time changes everything.”
I’ve never seen more antelope than in the Casper area.
Pronghorns won’t jump a fence. They crawl under. My relatives, who are meat hunters, not “sportsmen”, herd pronghorns into a fenced corner then pick off one or two at close range.
I’ve herd, but never seen it done, that a rag on a pole on top of a rise will attract pronghorn who will come to investigate.
I’ve heard the same thing about the rag on a pole. I had an uncle who hunted pronghorn in western Nebraska.
The rag on a pole works. I’ve done that hunting pronghorn with black powder in my youth.
I LOVE the LAST DROP.
And the Royal Scots Club. Must meet asap.
A man of your learning and knowledge of scripture would not make this mistake:
strait not straight. KJV
blame auto cucumber! 🙂
I have to agree with NFO here.
Avocado has always had both a disgusting flavor, a revolting texture, and an unappetizing appearance for me. While I have become a bit more tolerant of the flavor over time, the appearance (extended via unwilling imagination to texture) has only grown worse. You see, I’ve had to change certain diapers that bore unfortunate resemblance…
Y’all can keep your baby poop fruit. I want none of it.
That was supposed to be a reply to NFO. Dunno what happened, other than the mobile browser didn’t get along with the spam trap?
