I was at a pool party yesterday. There were several kids there. One little 3 year old boy spent a good part of the afternoon playing with a garden hose and toys in the pool house where the adults were gathered. His older sister swam in the pool with the other older kids. While in the pool house, the little boy had a couple Popsicles and a cupcake. When the Mom called the little girl in from the pool to dress and get ready to go home, she came into the pool house whining about wanting a popsicle. The parents were ready to leave so the Mom said, "You were in the pool all day and he didn't swim. Just go change because we need to leave." Well, the little girl stormed off in the typical little girl attitude fashion whining, "He got two popsicles and a cupcake." As she walked off to go change the Dad called out after her, "He had some root beer, too." It was mean but I thought I'd die laughing.

There was food overflowing at this party. I'm sure the little girl got her fair share of treats.

OOOOOOOOOuch . The heat coming off my skin keep the ac on here in the house lol .
I feel like a burnt match and did not even get in the sun , kept my fat ass on the boat under the top .
Got the wife pretty good , found a horse shoe crab , wife had never seen one let alone the kids , So there all playing with him and I told her they like to be rubbed on their belly lmao .... She turned that poor crab over and all three took off screaming .
Incase your wondering they look wicked on the bottoms , like a sci fi movie . Then I found her some '' furry '' sand dollars to play with and they left a dye all over her hands .

Kids were 100% freaking horrible this weekend ! WTF was I thinking taking them on a long trip ? Damn they were terrible !

But at least were home and we are one of the few who still have power

Since I am now a Louisiana resident and haven't gotten around to getting my LA carry permit, I did get some good news today. While talking with two of the responding officers today, and my sister's cop neighbor, I find out that Louisiana is apparently an open carry state.

Now I don't have to carry illegally concealed as I have been doing, or leave my gun in the car/home.

Of course I'll be checking the laws myself this evening.

My son and I were moving a table out in the orchard today and a quail started flopping around and acting wounded, a common distractionary behavior. Turns out that she had nested there and was protecting a clutch of a dozen eggs. We put the table back and went to get the family that lives in a cabin nearby to show the young boys and when we got back the quail had expired (that means she was dead) apparently from the shock. So we brought the eggs home and put them in an incubator to see if they would hatch out. It is now 4 or 5 hours later and some of the eggs are moving. We are hoping that we will be successful in hatching most of them.

So my staycation plans are to give my entire gun collection a cleaning. I'm thinking I'll do 2 or 3 guns per day. Should be fun. Probly also crank out some reloads

Great job! Keep us posted on the eggs.
