    Their in!

    This thread is for passing on things we like to do while "laid over". Well, since I am now on full time "lay over", I have started cooking again. A couple of weeks ago it was our prize winning chili. Last week a made a big pot of beef soup. Took 3 days to make it but it sure was good! Now, I...

    Bald Eagle in Michigan

    There are often more than 400 around there this time of year. They are staging for their northern migration. They stay near there because of the warm water coming out of the power plant. That warm water keeps the ice from forming there, giving them access to fish, mainly shad, that come in...

    For the romantic truck driver, reserve now.

    I can understand it at White Castle.

    Bipartisan WOW!

    Mrs. Layoutshooter and I took 2nd place in tonight SE Michigan Chili Cook Off. One of the impartial judges was a DU biologist. One was congresswoman Debbie Dingell, a flaming liberal Obama bum and the other was Dustin, field rep to Tea Party Rep Tim Whalberg! MORE proof that I am a "centerist"...

    There is hope

    There is hope in the fight against invasive species. One of the things we learned about at the DU weekend was a "new" method of fighting them. They have been working on it for several years and believe they will have it available in another 5-10 years. It involves a kind of "GMO" work where...

    $3000 per week

    I would be totally bored, after the first five minutes. I prefer to cook my own meals, live where I please and provide my own entertainment. I have never, and can never see, going on a cruise, let alone live on a cage, albeit a guilded cage. A life without challenge is no life at all.

    Great fun!

    I did a pheasant/chucker hunt today with 10 other guys, and one teenage girl. Had a wonderful time. I had the extreme pleasure of hunting over, two, champion wire haired Griffons. We also had a Springer with us. I got to see a triple point, the two Griffons on the outsides and the Springer...

    Historic rifle found

    They were not tracked back then, no reason to track them. What is common now was vastly different over 100 years ago Keep in mind that, back then, not all firearms even had serial numbers on them. I don't believe that serial numbers were required on firearms, by the federal government, until...

    Historic rifle found

    Paperwork? :confused: This was a much freer country back then. At best there would have been a bill of sale.

    Classic movies

    Unless you forget, the officials missed/did not call, at least, 7 penalties against the Lions that day, including one on that same play for grabbing the face mask. No game, if well played, should ever come down to one bad call.

    Classic movies

    I am sort of a Lions fan. IF I watch football, and the Lions are on, I would watch. I would rather hunt, fish, shoot or work on toys, than watch football. I also often would rather watch NCIS reruns that any football game.

    Super Night!

    Shudda been with us today! I was not even a "hunter" today, just taking follow up shots when the other's missed. I still got 5 pheasants and 8 quail and I was not even using my own gun! One of the "clients" guns was not ejecting, so, I let him use mine and I used his "single shot". That eyelid...

    Super Night!

    The Monroe County Chapter of Ducks Unlimited had it's "Hunter's Night Out" dinner at the Monroe Rod and Gun Club. It was a SUPER night. It was sold out, 200 guests. It is a much smaller event than our spring event, but it made a lot of money for wetlands conservation. As it is with all of...

    It's FUN time!

    Someday, when we meet up, I will tell you the story of the ACOG I have on my "other" AR. It's a good story! :cool: Are you with the VA health system? If not, you should be. I have been with the VA since 1990. I was just there, again, today. I had not had a hearing assessment. As expected, my...

    It's FUN time!

    I have no doubt that loading will keep my mind active. That is just one of the reasons I decided to buy the AR's and start loading for them, to learn. It is just complicated enough to force you to think, yet simple enough that it can be learned. It's also always changing, so it's never static...
