Slow Learner

Apparently I'm a slow learner.  It just occurred to me why The Wannabe kept Biden as VP during the last election.  The Wannabe is safe because Biden would be worse.

Touchy Shoulder

Got to the range yesterday for about an hour. It's been . . . . well . .  a long time.  Surprisingly, even my weak hand shooting wasn't as bad as I expected.  Tried some Redhawk 454 rounds at 200 yards.  Now that was pathetic.

Did OK with the Ishapore and 454 lever gun.  I must have held one of them wrong, because my shoulder is a bit touchy.  The 454 lever cranker has more recoil than the 308 Ishy.  For extended shooting, it could use a better recoil pad, especially when launching 300 grain bullets.

Damn Horse

The Boss is still limping from her knee surgery, combined with her bum back, and the granddaughter has been poor at taking care of the horse.  Spread over several days this last week I dug and hauled 16 loads of packed horse crap using a wheel barrow from the stall.

The horse is a small mare that today was in heat.  And she sure was bitchy.  With help I managed to clean packed crap out of her hooves.  Three cleaned well and the fourth sort of clean.  I was once told that a horse can't kick sideways.  That little mare managed to do it anyway.  She pulled her leg from my grasp, kicked to the side and caught me on the side of the knee, shoving me into the near wall.  Glad I didn't have much weight on that leg at the time. Nothing but a bruise, thankfully.

IF WE EVER GET ANOTHER HORSE, IT WILL NOT BE A MARE.

She's Doing Well

This morning the Boss had knee surgery.  Trimmed 2 tares, removed some floaters and scraped arthritis.  The cartilage has gotten thin, so we're predicting knee replacement in her future.

I have an artificial right hip and I can tell the left is getting the same way.  Wouldn't it be fun if we both needed joint replacement at the same time?

Apple Pie . . . . mmmmmm

Apple Pie air freshener.

In the bathroom at work.

This means that when I run in to pee between clients, I start gagging because it smells like someone took a dump on a freshly-baked apple pie.

This is even worse than pine-scented air freshener. Because sometimes you do poop in the woods, but I hope to God nobody shits on apple pie...it would be un-American!


Lucrative Pain

Oxidation

Every day I get e-mails from Newsmax.
Today I got one that says "Your brain is rusting"
While probably true, how the hell do they know?

Getting Close

Another 2 hours and I'll have the cladding covering the deck framing finished.  Next is the railing.  By the time I get home from work and eat it's almost dark, so I'm now into weekends only.

All the gutters and the bathroom window have been replaced.  The roof over the deck has been constructed.  I paid to get all of that done.

Maybe I'll post some pictures when it's finished.

All work and no play is getting very old.  Haven't ridden the horse we bought 6 weeks ago, and my trigger finger is very itchy.
