    Turkey trifecta again this year... 1 smoked, 1 roasted, and 1 fried. Fried has the best skin, the meat is tied with roasted for eating hot. The smoked one is the best for day 2, cold on sandwiches, or my sons favorite : Put the stuffing in a waffle iron, then fold into a taco add the meat and gravy.. Yum.

Larry - MMMDCCLXVI - Hoping I can try the retired life in about 4 years. Unless I can somehow magically get healthcare that doesn't cost a small fortune.. STB - MMMDCCLXVII - I just spent a fortune. Closed on another house, this time in Charlotte. Wife's new job is there, but with kids in school here, we will keep this one till next year and my wife will commute back and forth. This one is on Lake Norman, nice place.

Time to strap on your skis, the mountains got pounded last night. STB - MMMDCCLXIV - Spent the day on the water laying waste to fish, speckled trout, can only keep 4, blues, kept 2, and albacore ( all set free). The albacore were all caught on a 10 weight fly rod.The largest I caught was 9 lbs 4 oz, avg was about 7, a hell of a lot of fun on fly gear! I smoked the blues, and pan fried the trout., in some fat from home made bacon. Damn good eats..A great day was had by all. I do have to head back out west, the skiing is awesome. Did I ever tell you I worked as a Ski Patroller at Vale for 2 years?

    Woo - H00 - It is Turkey Time Roman Numeral Converter Quit Day Counter SUN MON TUE WED THUR FRI SAT November 15 Muddler - MMMDCCXXXIV - I was pleasantly surprised how well the lockdown worked at the school during the shooting yesterday. I have taken part in my share of lockdown drills, I had doubts about the effectiveness. Good job teachers. STB - MMMDCCLXI - It is effective, well done CO. I was involved in several active shooter drills in schools The PD fired different weapons in and around the school so teachers would know what actual gunfire sounded like. We were trained and were well prepared for such acts. Everything changed after Columbine. no more waiting, ACTIVE engagement was the mantra. ( Do not get me started on why the Las Vegas PD hid in the stair well for 45 minutes) In every set of FD coats (bunker gear) in the left front pocket was a battle dressing and tourniquet, that was for our use if we were shot, we were to engage, that's what we were paid to do, and did. we also carried with us a mass casualty kit for victims on entry in those shooting situations. Glad I never had to use the contents of the left front pocket ! I did use the shooting kit on several oppressed youths more than once. One time I remember was when the "DC sniper" was on the loose we responded to a shooting in Home Depot parking lot in our first due area, I recall getting as low as I could driving in and checking the contents of that pocket with my left hand, No doubt we were going in ( I was driving) That is what we do. I felt very vulnerable as the first in unit! We "corralled" the FD trucks around the victim, only then did I feel some what safe.

STB - MMMDCCLIX - No football watching yesterday here, got about 1/3 of the wall tile done, then my wife decided we needed another shelf in there, apparently you need a lot more products stored in arms reach.

    My daughter goes to an extremely liberal college so it has been fun teaching a lot of her friends about firearms. The only exposure most of them have to firearms is the very slanted view of the media. To teach them rifle, pistol, and shotgun (shooting trap) is a real awaking of empowerment for them. I built up a beautiful pink AR with a fluted match barrel, along with pink cammo mags for it. How can it be evil when it is pink, right! That gets them over the scary myth of the "assault rifle" All of them are shocked at how easy and fun that "horrible" rifle is to shoot. Ha.. Several of her friends now have hunting licenses, the first in their family. One of her other friends lives on a farm and has always hunted, so this year 4 of them went dove hunting and had a great time. The wildlife club that I belong to has a tradition of education for novice shooters. Instructors are encouraged to introduce new people to the sport. The dues are only $200 a year and we get $25 off for every new shooter we teach. There is no fee to the novice, only a waver to sign. The club provides the skeet and targets.
