    You know eventually Tator Brain and his administration will order everyone that hasn't got the vax, to get it. That will probably eventually happen.  You are gonna have to think really really really hard about what you're gonna complain about after that happens. 🤔

     My prediction:

     Once they figure out the logistics of how to do it, they will order everyone receiving any money from the federal government to get it. Welfare, Social Security, Medicare, Military retirement, Civil Service retirement ... etc.  Welfare recipients will probably be the last group to have to tow the line but they will get to them eventually.

    They might lose in court but people will suffer in the mean time (as if they care).

  2.  I seem to recall someone here is from Waverly, which is underwater.  I think I looked it up when someone there had something posted in the classifieds and I wanted to see if it was within my driving limits.

  3. If you're shooting them through a cylinder or maybe an improved cylinder choke it shouldn't be a problem but I wouldn't go any tighter without checking the hardness of the lead. If you can put a groove in it with your fingernail it should be soft enough if they are rifled slugs.

  4. On of my favorites......RIP

    Tom T. Hall, the singer-songwriter who composed "Harper Valley P.T.A." and sang about life’s simple joys as country music’s consummate blue collar bard, has died. He was 85.

    His son, Dean Hall, confirmed the musician's death on Friday at his home in Franklin, Tennessee

    Known as "The Storyteller" for his unadorned yet incisive lyrics, Hall composed hundreds of songs.Along with such contemporaries as Kris Kristofferson, John Hartford and Mickey Newbury, Hall helped usher in a literary era of country music in the early ’70s, with songs that were political, like "Watergate Blues" and "The Monkey That Became President," deeply personal like "The Year Clayton Delaney Died," and philosophical like "(Old Dogs, Children and) Watermelon Wine."

    Only 3 species of good snakes - hatband snakes, belt snakes and knife sheath snakes...

    We have a mom & pop  ammo store here that carries a lot of non standard types of ammo, I’ll take a look this weekend and see if they have anything. 

     You might want to do some reading up on killing snakes in Tennessee

  6. Another small tidbit.

     The shorter the barrel, the smaller the shot pattern (more shot where you're aiming). IMO #9 or 12 shot out of a 2" barrel is about the best you can do.) I was going to load up some 45 colt rounds but after researching I decided not to. My shortest barrel 45 is 5 1/2 inches.

     The reasoning behind this is the rifling in the barrel. The longer the barrel, the more rifling the shot capsule is exposed to so the faster it will spin. When the capsule exists the muzzle and the capsule breaks, the increased spin will throw the shot out in a larger area.

     I'm definitely not an expert here but it makes sense to me.  shrug.gif

    What's with McDonald's ice ream machine being down sometimes? I realize they may not make a lot on ice cream but, me personally I have left when I was told that, and didn't go back for a long time. 

     I ran across an article on this a long time ago. I don't know if this is the same link but it says the same thing.

    McDonald’s ice cream machines are made by a company called the Taylor Company, a long-time supplier of ice cream machines to McDonald’s. The machine goes through a daily four hour self-cleaning process, which locks out soft serve production until completion.

     

    According to @BehindTheBrands, it often fails during the self-cleaning process, rendering the machine useless.

    A broken machine requires a McDonald’s location to call a Taylor technician to fix the ice cream machine. These service calls are extremely expensive, with Taylor earning 25% of its annualized revenue just from fixing the McDonald’s ice cream machines.

    Therefore, they usually just stay broken until a restaurant deems it necessary enough to fix it.

    Cool. If he doesn't get out here and give an estimate in a few days, I might tackle it myself.

    I was just commenting on the vine. Get a pro to remove the limb !!!!

    I had an interesting day, yesterday. I've been having shortness of breath for the past couple of weeks. About a decade ago, I experienced the same thing and was diagnosed with atrial flutter for which the treatment was cardio-version, (shocking the heart). I have been vaccinated for COVID since March so I figured that my atrial flutter was back. Over the past couple of weeks I would have periods of where I would sweat pretty hard just sitting in my chair in the air-conditioning. I was also coughing, sneezing, and had a slight runny nose. Given these additional symptoms I wondered if I might be one of the 3% who get breakthrough COVID from the D variant, so I went to the VA's urgent care to get worked up. The good news is that I have neither atrial flutter nor COVID. That means there must be something else going on with my heart/lungs, so next week I get to go get an echo cardiogram and see the cardiologist. 😞

     I just went through the exact same thing a few weeks ago. After my echo cardiogram I wound up with three stints in my heart  cool.gif

    The deer not only spared the rabbit but was not going to let any other deer near it was what seemed odd also. That doe had a run in with a hawk before at one time or another evidently. Still very interesting video to say the least.

     This would be my opinion also. I don't think it had anything to do with the rabbit but pure hatred of the hawk and finding one that she could get to,  gave her a chance for a payback.

  11. Ford is tapping the brakes on the Bronco.

    Production and deliveries of the rebooted SUV is being held up by a manufacturing issue with its hardtop roofs.

    The "molded-in color" roofs, which are built by an outside supplier, have suffered quality problems affecting their appearance, which have now been addressed, and will be replaced on all of the trucks manufactured to date.

    That means owners currently in possession of their trucks will receive new roofs later this year, while those still waiting for delivery will have to wait a little longer.
