A strike industries ambi mag release, a magpul plus rubber pistol grip and a beard friendly magpul acs carbine stock. I'm on the hunt for a BCM upper now and an Eotech

    The mild winter we had will contribute to a good crop of mosquitos this year.

    It’ll have to get in line behind the Coronavirus.

    And ticks and fleas, too.

    West Nile had me using a lot more cutters and Deep Woods Off.

    Deer ticks - there's something to be afraid of. There's not a lot of "maybe" involved there.

    6 AM. already made the rounds of all my blogs and forums. But I won't be bored. I get to play "find the dead mouse"

    I got projects to keep me busy. but the GPS module for my large property perimeter monitor project went toes up, and I can't find any of the 3 spares.

    same with the mountain bike. one odd little specialized washer - square opening for carriage bolt head, small tab - disappeared, and I can't install the front derailleur without it.

    March is giving us our quota of wind for the month. early April looks OK, but March has a reputation to uphold.

    the suck is strong today.

    Yeah but it's not the new black death they were painting all those years ago, so no one cares.

    I know about a half dozen people that had confirmed cases of west nile & like alot of viruses, it put a couple people on deaths door & the others never knew they were sick. One guy i know temporarily got paralyzed on his right side, just like he'd had a stroke. Another guy i know said it affected alot of his brain functions. He said he didn't realize how bad it was until one day he stopped at a stoplight & all of a sudden he forgot what he was supposed to do when the light turned green.

    I'm glad our shop sprays for mosquitos and spiders every year, it's pretty effective. The last couple of places I worked I was covered in bites.

    Telling people on car pages on Facebook that I'm changing spark plugs in a Cummins never gets old. Or maybe I'm just bored.

    Let it grow out.
    That’s awesome. I told my son about you. He said you were faking knowing about cars. I told him about your degree and accomplishments and then I told him when they start talking the foreign language if cars here, you know the language. And when they post a picture with no words, you know what you’re looking at.

    Buy a Wahl buzz kit, shave the sides, and grow a mullet. They're back in style.

    I've been there. We still have multiple cans of Off laying around from four years ago or so, when they didn't spray.

    My clipper doesn't have a vacuum hose. I've used it for decades. I'm getting wealthy just on saved haircut costs.
