Stopped in shop today- they said "Your rifle is back!". Wrapped in a soft case, invisible repair to toe of stock, new buttplate, and a $50 gift certificate from the owner of the shop.

And well they should.

Hey Tripp, glad you escaped the chicken ****ers, and are in reasonably good shape.
But looking at the bright side, your house guest probably had the best laugh he's had in quite a while.
Keep up the good work!

I think my trip home was quite successful, I think my niece now knows that a Peterbilt is a truck, and she can say it pretty well, she also knows the noise the Jake brakes make, which I imitate quite well, and I drove the Chevelle. I also realized that if I had the time I'd go hang out at the local truck stop and watch the trucks roll in. Yeah... I have a problem

You would have bigger problems if you were hanging out at the local truck stop just to stare at trucks. You'd be mistaken for someone else...

The other kid just started puking.

She hasn't eaten all day cuz she didn't feel good so no clue what she's puking up.

The creek is rising and there's a foot of water on the road already.

This ain't good.

Sweet lil lady needs to come home soon while there's still a house left.
Have you heard this story? I don't know if its true or not, but it is well written and entertaining either way!

Quote:
MRE dinner date, the following is a true story... Told from the point of
view of a young Marine.

I had a date the other night at my place. On the phone the day before, the
girl asked me to "Cook her something she's never had before" for dinner.
After many minutes of scratching my head over what to make, I finally
settled on something she has DEFINITELY, definitely had never eaten
before. I got out my trusty case of MRE's. (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) Field
rations that when eaten in their entirety contain 3000+ calories in each
meal.

Here's what I made: I took three of the Ham Slices out of their plastic
packets, took out three of the Pork Chops, three packets of Chicken-a-la-
king and eight packets of dehydrated butter noodles and some
dehydrated/rehydrat ed rice. I cooked the Ham Slices and Pork Chops in
one pan, sauté in shaved garlic and olive oil. In another pot, I blended
the Chicken a-la-king, noodles, and rice together to make a sort of mush
that looked suspiciously like succotash. I added some spices, and blended
everything together in a glass pan that I then cooked in the oven for
about 35 minutes at 450 degrees. When I took it out, it looked like,
well, ham slices, pork chops, and a bed of yellow poop. I covered the tops
of the meat in the MRE cheese (kinda like Velveeta) and added some green
sprinkly things from one of my spice cans (hey, if it has green sprinkly
things on it, it looks fancy right?

For dessert, I took four MRE Pound Cakes, mashed 'em up, added five
packets of cocoa powder, powdered coffee cream, and some water. I heated
it up and stirred it until it looked like a sort of chunky gelatinous
xxxxxxx, and I sprinkled powdered sugar on top of it. Voilaanger Pudding.

For alcoholic drinks, I took the rest of my bottle of Military Special
Vodka (yes, they DO make a type of liquor named "Military Special"...it
sells for $4.35 per fifth at the Class Six) and mixed in four packets of
"Electrolytes - 1 each - Cherry flavored" (I swear, the packet says that).
It looked like an eerie Kool-Aid with sparkles in it (that was the
electrolytes I guess... Could've been leftover sand from Egypt ).

I lit two candles, put a vase of wildflowers in the middle, and set the
table with my best set of Ralph Lauren Academy -series China (that stuff
is EXPENSIVE... My set of 8 place settings cost me over $600 on sale at
the Lejeune PX), and put the alcoholic drink in a crystal wine decanter.

She came over, and I had some appetizers already made, of MRE
spaghetti-with- meatballs, set in small cups. She saw the dinner, saw the
food, and said "This looks INCREDIBLE!! !" We dug in, and she loved the
food. Throughout the meal, she kept asking me how long it took me to make
it, and kept remarking that I obviously knew a thing or two about cooking
fine meals. She kind of balked at the make-shift "wine" I had set out, but
after she tried it I guess she liked it because she drank four glasses
during dinner.

At the end of the main course, when I served the dessert, she squealed
with delight at the "Chocolate mousse" I had made. Huh? Chocolate what?
Okay... Yeah... Its Chocolate Moose. Took me HOURS to make... Yup!

Later on, as we were watching a movie, she excused herself to use my rest
room. While she was in there, I heard her say softly to herself "uh oh"
and a resounding but petite fart punctuated her utterance of dismay. Let
the games begin. She sprayed about half a can of air freshener (Air
Freshener, 1 each, Orange scent. Yup. The military even makes smell-good)
and returned to the couch, this time with an obvious pained look.
After 10 more minutes she excused herself again, and retreated to the
bathroom for the second time, I could hear her say, "What the hell is
WRONG with me???" as she again send flatulent shockwaves into the
porcelain bowl. This time, they sounded kinda wet, and I heard the toilet
paper roll being employed, and again, LOTS more air freshener.

Back to the couch. She smiles meekly as she decides to sit on the chair
instead of next to me. She sits on my chair, knees pulled up to her chest,
kind of rocking back and forth slightly. Suddenly, without a word, she
ROCKETED up and FLEW to the bathroom, slammed the door, and didn't come
out for 30 minutes.

I turned the movie up because I didn't want her to hear me laughing so
hard that tears were streaming down my cheeks. She came out with a
slightly gray pallor to her face, and said "I am SOOOOOO sorry. I have NO
idea what is wrong with me. I am so embarrassed; I can't believe I keep
running to your bathroom!!"

I gave her an Imodium AD, and she finally settled down and relaxed. Later
on, she asked me again what I had made for dinner, because she had enjoyed
it so much. I calmly took her into the kitchen and showed her all the used
MRE bags and packets in the trash can. After explaining to her that she
had eaten roughly 9,000 calories of "Marine Corps Field Rations" she
turned stark white, looked at me incredulously, and said "I ate 9,000
calories of dehydrated food that was made 3 years ago?" After I admitted
it, she grabbed her coat and keys, and took off without a word. She called
me yesterday. Seems she couldn't **** for 5 days, and when she finally
did, the smell was so bad, her roommate could smell it from down the hall.
She also told me she had been working out nonstop to combat the high
caloric intake, and that she never wanted me to cook dinner for her again,
unless she was PERSONALLY present and supervising.

It was a fun date. She laughed about it eventually and said that that was
the first time she'd ever crapped in a guy's house on a date. She'd been
so upset by it she was in tears in the bathroom while I had been in tears
on the couch.

I know... I'm an *******, but it was still a funny night.
