rocksavedmysoul Thanks Margo but we got whipped. I was a frozen turkey by the 4th quarter. I really think that the Royal Oak show is Kracker's best, too. Went the past three years. Skipped this one because we had two tailgates at the U of M game. Busy weekend!
bluesuedeshoe LOL, L! I feel your pain. Had to give up the outdoor stuff on the onset of disability, but did find that by stocking up on those battery powered socks, gloves, vests, and the heat packs jammed into my hat to cover my ears, I can make a small showing for a kiddie football game or whatnot. Strictly 30 min max, rofl.
MargoC I don't know how you can take sitting out in the cold for that long, takes ya forever to warm up afterward!
bluesuedeshoe Not that I should even be looking, but, I fail to see a "happy trail" here. Maybe it's eyesight due to age or maybe it's that Bob's an obsessive groomer. I hear those little electrified models work wonders. Me? I care not. I grew up in an era of hair. I fail to see the appeal of making yourself 122, lol. Got back hair? Wear a t shirt.
rocksavedmysoul Val set it all up. She would alert my husband when any emails came out about the cruise so he could delete them before I saw them from Sixthman. I hadn't planned on going because I have two kids in college and we did a bunch of home repair projects. Val and I will be 'chillin the most' on this one.
bluesuedeshoe What drives me nuts here is Bob and company using it as branding on his official site. One gun isn't enough, we
have go to have two matching 24K gold models. Hey, look at me, simple target practice isn't enough, watch me rip with an automated piece so powerful it has to be bolting to the ground. It's disrespectful. It targets a vulnerable young audience. And now, with terrorism on the rise, it's downright inciteful. Couple a weeks ago a housewife with open carry came down to a Home Depot closer to the D. When a teenager rushed out past her with a wagon full of goods, she ripped off a couple of shots at the kid, car, and possibly anyone else who was standing nearby (or locked into a baby carseat). Is this the world we want to live in? Now there is evil here anyway, nothing to do with religous beliefs. After having all our bank money stolen at home, my uncle brought my Mom an old detectives pistol, filled with blanks. She was stuck out in the middle of nowhere until we got home from school. Sure enough, a year or two later that little soandso came back with a few of his friends, walked right in the kitchen door. She asked them nicely to move along, but they felt they had to explore more drawers, so she pulled it out from under the tea towels, and let one rip at the ceiling, and another in their direction running down our dirt road. Stupid kids left their cars, which were convesgated and several did time. Damn lucky for her she acted quickly, or she could have been raped.
montanaanna No offense taken, Blue ;) Wow what a great smart quick thinking mama ;) I thought you came from good stock ;) Part of what I apologize didn't say as clearly as I'd hoped before is...yes, with my juris I can and did 'win' in some cases...even at the Montana Supreme Court before I even graduated...but I originally decided to go and went to law school for the education...didn't know all I was supposed to be afterward, but in all these years since I continue to affirm what I've always believed...education is the key...communication, discussion without a need to incite. I learned in my education there are at least two sides, two perspectives...always...it's how we work those perspectives out that really matters. In law school and being a licensed part of the system there are moral things unaddressed that I could not live with...I've seen the not good part if the legal system...whether the gun issue or the litigous society in which we find ourselves...I bieve they are but symptoms of something deeper...well, I'm in for the long haul with humanity, and Blue, I believe you are after the same goal...what will set us free...education...that is the key...so I set about my every day with that goal in mind and heart...education...edification...communication...it may be delusional but I believe in the powerful good heart of the human condition...I work every day with all I amto make my small ripple...thanks for yours Blue and MsBehavin...it takes us all...it takes us all...speak up, America, speak up! :D
bluesuedeshoe Agree Anna, education sets some of us free, but only those who are willing to make the effort, spend the money to invest in a future, and open their minds to more opportunity. After living in America for 60 years, my conclusion is that MARKETING and the quest for the almighty dollar rules. Much to our determent, and to the children we raise.
