    Memory Teaser test

    Winchester 190. Christmas gift when I was 12.

    Thought of the Day

    I must be an underachiever, I have no broken down cars or school buses. Not even any broken appliances on the porch. I must try harder.
  3. Roger that. My last boat was a Stratos 285 ProXL with a 150 Fast Strike. I put many hours on it for I was heavy into tournaments for several years. I came off the water and quit tournaments when my kids started playing ball. The years have gone by and my kids grew up. I'm just looking to get back on the water for pleasure and maybe a small local tourny or two occasionally. Looking for something with a wide/stable beam and dependable.

    I wish my bank account filled up as fast as the laundry hamper and trash can.
  5. I am in the market for an 18' to 19' used bass boat with a 115 to 150 outboard. I am leaning toward an aluminum boat rather than fiberglass but have not totally discounted either. Looking at early to mid 2Ks. Condition is key. Thanks

    Delton AR15 kit

    I have had Del-tons and never had any problems. They ran well and hit what I aimed at.

    What's a dad to do

    My 21 year old daughter moved to Birmingham last year and I went through similar father worries. Yet, my daughter has no reservations about having a weapon, has her carry permit and is proficient. She has pepper spray on her key ring, knows how to throw a wicked punch, and I bought her three cans of wasp/hornet spray that will spray to 30 feet. She has one can in the bathroom, one in the kitchen and one in the bedroom all at easy reach. This stuff is better than pepper spray in some ways.

    sold 2001 Ford Ranger Edge X-Cab

    Thanks, it has served us well.
  9. 2001 Ford Ranger, Edge package, step-side, Bright Yellow, A/C, Auto trans, 3.0 6-Cyl, extra cab, 194k miles. Truck runs and drives good and has new front rotors and brakes. I have owned it and driven daily since Aug of 2013. I have only used Mobile 1 in it as did the owner before me. The water pump started seeping some about 8 months ago and I replaced it along with a new idler pulley and serpentine belt while I was there. The clear coat on the hood and front fender is bad but it still looks good. I can email pics if wanted and the truck is located in Roane County convenient to Oak Ridge/Harriman/Kingston areas. $2600 obo I have more vehicles than I need but will consider trade items to reduce cash outlay if it is something I can use.

    Waffle House Shooting-Nashville

    Manchurian Candidate...Ok, Ok, and no I don't wear a tin foil hat. It was just the first thought that came to mind when I saw the news report. Kind of like word association.

    Sometimes life just SUCKS!!!!!

    Bersa, I really hate to hear the aggravation this causes, but it sounds like life may be better in the future by making the move. Not to mention, if your daughter is a good cook you may score a home cooked meal once in a while that you don't have to cook.

    I have a full head of thick hair that once was dark brown. It went to white in my mid 30's. I blame my wife but fact is all the men in my family gray out or white out at an early age.

    I just realized that if they could figure out a way to transplant ear hair to the scalp, every guy over 55 would look like Joe Dirt in about two weeks...just sayin'.
  15. I'm cheap, I bought some chartreuse fluorescent paint, cleaned the sight with alcohol, and used a toothpick to insert paint into the sight dots. Not exactly night sights, but greatly improved the sight visibility in low light and daylight conditions. Total darkness not so much.
