    The decline of our infrastructure

    I have seen some scary bridges from underneath that are carrying heavy loads daily. "Rust never sleeps and concrete doesnt last forever" I have seen 8" orbit valves that the paint was thicker than the washed out iron body of the valve. I have seen old power lines sag or melt from overload. This...

    Local tragedy

    Friend of mine was trying to get a bull loaded into his trailer and ended up getting clobbered by the bull, one of his ranch hands punched the bull in the nose and slapped it's face with his cowboy hat and got the bull off of him. He was in the hospital for several days, and last year another...

    My girlfriend ran over my foot

    The damage I can see means I pretty much ruined all fishing, camping, fun things this summer as my right knee is sketchy and tryin to use crutches is hard and rehab on a messed up foot and ankle is always painfully slow

    should be a required view for anyone who reloads, plays with surplus firearms and ammo or is paying to shoot a big gun at a "range day". I have seen a few grenades, Winchester Model 50 with a bulged barrel and cracked bolt from overcharged reloads, shooting handgun silhouette matches, Ruger...

    Banned from Facebook, again

    Farming progress for those who are interested

    A good friend of mine has 400 acres in winter wheat in North Central Oklahoma. Her price per bushel was negotiated already and last year she had some 60 bushel/acre yields on most of it, so if thunderstorms, hail, greenbugs and grasshoppers don't ruin it for her, she should do ok again this year...

    14 Pictures of White Sands National Park NM

    One beautiful evening, I rode my Harley from Las Cruces to Alamagordo right at sunset and the White sands were purple and pink and orange with almost a mirror image of the sunset in pastel colors and shadows from the mountains. Very beautiful ride coming through the pass. I did a big job for...
