  1. God bless her; Mom could drink me under the table and wake up the next morning in fine shape. Meanwhile I was looking for Advil . . .
  2. Thank you. Since you are in Athens, you will want to know that Mom was a graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan.
  3. What I have to share may mean little to nothing to most, but please allow me to share a moment in my life. My dear mother, Frances from Chattanooga, died in November, 2017 after a fall and a TBI. Mom loved her home in Chattanooga (the only one I ever knew) and she hated leaving it in 2012 after breaking her hip. Mom moved to Nashville and lived with my wife and me after selling the home in Chattanooga. Mom was "happy" with us in Nashville, but her heart remained in Chattanooga at the "old home place." In celebration of her 87th birthday in 2017, we took mom to a cabin in Monteagle whe
  4. Just wanted to show off my new (made in 1966!) Browning SA-22 complete with original box. I've wanted one for a long time as it is a great lil .22. Just wanted to brag a bit! With special thanks to Garufa for leading me to the serial number page so I could authenticate the year it was made.
  5. Thank you TripleGGG . . . with respect to you and a film I love.
  6. I have been a TGO member since 2008; more active some years than others, but I am committed to checking in daily. Last autumn I realized how much I missed being on TGO on a regular basis. In the time I have been on TGO, 99.9% of the folks I have met have been kind, generous, funny, helpful (even when I ask dumb questions or make inane comments), and supportive when I have shared personal issues. As we start 2020 I want to offer a genuine and sincere THANK YOU to all who have interacted with me. It is my goal to be a friend, support, and advocate for everyone I meet on TGO. Let'
  7. I recently introduced my 18 month old granddaughter to pancakes . . . she will love me forever!
  8. I own one in a 6" version. The "lust" factor for a 4" is now in place. Want to see how it goes over, though.
  9. I am partial to leather holsters. If you like them, check out the excellent holster collection at https://www.bullardleather.com/
  10. I've started doing a lot more rimfire shooting in the last year, and depending on the ammo, some seems to shoot dirtier than others. Or maybe it's my lack of perception because of my advanced age . . .
  11. Thank you; of all the pages I looked at, I wasn't able to find this one without your help. Rifle was made in 1966!
  12. I am looking at a Belgian Browning SA-22 for sale and am trying to determine the date of manufacture. I've scoured a lot of websites and come away more confused than knowledgeable about how to interpret the serial number for manufacture date. Do any of you have any suggestions? And as always, thanks!
  13. God rest him. He was the best of what NASCAR was . . . https://www.nascar.com/news-media/2019/12/20/junior-johnson-moonshiner-nascar-legend-dies-88/
  14. I remember my first trip squirrel hunting at AEDC when I was 14 (that makes it about 1968). Being from Chattanooga I was used to climbing up and down hills while hunting so I pretty well always knew where I was. AEDC was the first totally FLAT land I ever hunted on and I got so lost. Everything looked the same! If my dad did not turn on the car lights and start blowing the horn I'd probably still be walking around in there . . .
  15. I would appreciate feedback about how you clean and care for pistol magazines. How do you clean, oil, or not clean and oil. As always, I am thankful for all the help I get from the great folks on TGO.
  16. pop pop - you've had a great weekend! As for me today, I'm at home this week recovering from successful outpatient surgery on Friday and am generally staying in the recliner!
  17. When I was in high school, I had a summer job in a warehouse. It is the first time I ever used a forklift andit took me a bit of time to get the hang of it. On the very top of a very high rack was a pallet that no one could get down because it was a bit far back on the shelf for the forks to reach. I was told that the pallet contained a box full of paper plates, so I didn't think it a great deal would matter when I dropped it. Being the young newbie that no one took too seriously, I wanted to prove myself by getting that pallet down all by myself. I got to work early and practiced getting
  18. I took my wife to VUMC to get the cast taken off her broken ankle Thursday morning and read an article in an Outdoor Life from this summer. From all the obvious lookalike of the Ruger, I wondered when and if the lawsuits were coming.
