I'm still alive

April, May, June, and now July have came and gone with no posts. What the heck? Well my bro moved in with me making my life more interesting. Also changed shifts at work making my life strange again. Went to Vegas the first week of June which was neat but a lot of it was lost on me due to that I don't gamble much (lost $1) and there is almost any kind of sinful act is available. Although they did have a cool car show while I was there and the car driving down the strip was very cool even though it was very hot out.

Now I sit waiting for my shift to start so I though why not do some blogging. I'll be floating down Jacks fork next week and will try and write about it. See you then.

Shake, Rattle, and Roll at 4 A.M

*BANG* *BANG* *BANG* "What is that?" I thought as i turned my head in bed. "Oh the bookshelf is moving.....THE BOOKSHELF IS MOVING!" I jump out of bed and rush to the door frame standing in place. After a few moments the ground settled down. I waited a few moments and went back to bed. When I got up I wondered if I dreamed the whole thing until I got to work. Everybody was talking about it and to add to the creepiness it happened again at work. I guess I need to be more alert for the time being.

And now from the Book of John (Moses Browning)

I found this on a forum and got a laugh so take a look.

The Holy Gospel According to John (Moses Browning)

Chapter 1 ver 1-13

1. In the beginning was the 1911, and the 1911 was the pistol, and it was good. And behold the Lord said, thou shalt not muck with my disciple John's design for it is good and it worketh. For John made the 1911, and lo all of his weapons, from the designs which I, the Lord, gave him upon the mountain.

2. And shouldst thou muck with it and hang all manner of foul implements upon it, and profane its internal parts, thou shalt surely have malfunctions, and in the midst of battle thou shalt surely come to harm.

3. And as the ages passed men in their ignorance and arrogance didst forget the word of the Lord and began to profane the 1911. The tribe of the gamesman did place recoil spring guides and extended slide releases upon the 1911 and their metal smiths didst tighten the tolerances and alter parts to their liking, their clearness of mind being clouded by lust.

4. Their artisans did hang all manner of foul implements upon the 1911 and did so alter it that it became impractical to purchase. For lo, the artisans didst charge a great tax upon the purchasers of the 1911 so that the lowly field worker could not afford one. And the profaning of the internal parts didst render it unworkable when the dust of the land fell upon it.

5. And lo, they didst install adjustable sights, which are an abomination unto the Lord. For they doth break and loose their zero when thou dost need true aim. And those who have done so will be slain in great numbers by their enemies in the great battle.

6. And it came to pass that the Lord didst see the abomination wrought by man and didst cause, as he had warned, fearful malfunction to come upon the abominations and upon the artisans who thought they could do no wrong.

7. Seeing the malfunctions and the confusion of men the lord of the underworld did see an opportunity to further ensnare man and didst bring forth pistols made of plastic, whose form was such that they looked and felt like a brick, yet the eyes of man being clouded, they were consumed by the plastic pistol and did buy vast quantities of them.

8. And being a deceitful spirit the lord of the underworld did make these plastic pistols unamenable to the artisans of earth and they were unable to muck much with the design, and lo these pistols did function.

9. And the evil one also brought forth pistols in which the trigger didst both cock and fire them and which require a "dingus" to make them appear safe.

10. But man being stupid did not understand these new pistols and did proceed to shoot themselves with the plastic pistol, and with the trigger cocking pistols for lo their manual of arms required great intelligence which man had long since forsaken. Yet man continues to gloat over these new pistols blaming evil forces for the negligent discharges which they themselves had committed.

11. And when man had been totally ensnared with plastic pistol, the lord of the underworld didst cause a plague of the terrible Ka-BOOM to descend upon man and the plastic pistols delivered their retribution upon men. And there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth in the land. 12. Then seeing that the eyes of man were slowly being opened and that man was truly sorrowful for his sinful misdeeds, the Lord did send his messengers in the form of artisans who did hear and obey the teachings of the prophet and who didst restore the profaned 1911s to their proper configuration, and lo, to the amazement of men they didst begin to work as the prophet had intended.

13. And the men of the land didst drive out the charlatans and profaners from the land, and there was joy and peace in the land, except for the evil sprits which tried occasionally to prey on the men and women of the land and who were sent to the place of eternal damnation by the followers of John.

The 1911 as it should be.

Another Lazy/Busy Sunday at work

Here we are again, another Sunday and I'm working. Man it has been crazy this morning with the phones ringing off the hook and it just now slowed down. Even though it seems as if the light at the end of the tunnel has been shut off due to cut backs it maybe sparking back to life. I found out that some better hours and days. Yes finally. Please keep me in your prayers. More gun pictures to come. YE HAW!

My this has been long

My March is nearly over and I haven't blogged in a while. Finally got my SKS, pictures to come tonight if I have time, and it took me over an hour to clean out the mess of grease that covered the rifle. Also haven't had time to try it yet but pictures to follow.
The snow season has finally ended now the rain and flooding. According to the weather man the next 3 days are calling for more rain. The Mississippi river is already high and their calling for more rain, great! Well I can't fault the weather man, they just predict the weather not make it, or do they?
What else? Oh yes SASS is starting, to bad I don't have Saturdays off but working on that. I'm starting to get excited, I haven't been CAS for over a year and need to get back into it. Man, I itching just to get back into the outfit and strap on my Rugers, grab my Winchester 97, and have a romping good time! YE HAW!

Snow Snow go away

Talk about things that get on your nerves. First I had to work overtime on my day off with this I had to push back getting my SKS. Then I finally get home and the guy couldn't meet, again push it back. Then yesterday I was to meet him and I was stuck at my parents house and couldn't meet him, you see a trend? So now it is setup to meet him on Friday and the weather man is calling for more snow! NO! I will be overjoyed when this done.
