sold!

Went to the gun show at the Will Rogers center with Dean, we ended up selling and or trading everything we took. So, for now, no more guns to be selling. Dean got a Western Arms Longhorn, a Colt 1873 clone in .357.

Today was semi-productive. Got the bowling alley cut up and trimmed. It’s clamped up and gluing even as I type this. It’s too cold outside for gluing, so it’s on the kitchen counter. I’ll need to plane the top a bit to get it nice and flat, but it seems like it’ll work. Also will [Continue]

aliens vs. predator requiem

Go see it. Saw it today with Rick and Todd and Adam. Holy cow it was awesome! From the beginning, there was death and dismemberment and blood. Oh dear God was there blood.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone. We traditionally do Christmas on Christmas Eve, so I’ll probably not be posting anything till the day after Christmas. We were going to do Christmas at Glenda & Dean’s this year, but due to unforeseen circumstances, it’ll be over at my aunt’s casa. Should be a good crowd, I think Aunt Nancy [Continue]

“Mammy, for a towel wrapped around a couple ofinches. Out candice michelle naked then we look at helen.” I have no idea what this one is trying to say. Wow. What awesome advertising!

Just so everyone knows, I’m not doing wrapping paper this year. Everyone’s gift is arriving in a Chipotle carryout bag.
