ROFL! Suck it up Junior....yer day will come! LOL!

As to whats new....We are scheduled to close next week on another parcel of land (60 acres) which we purchased from a retiring farmer on the back side of our farm. This will bring our total acreage here at Whiterock Farm to nearly 400 acres.

And yes....I am done buying any more land! LOL!

What's new in my life, Huh?

Let's see.....I'm at work right now (yeah, I know, BITE me, retirees! [Big Grin] ), but I'm gettin' paid $20/hr. straight-time to do this, and wait 'till somethin' breaks.....

Went to the Range with the wife and daughter yesterday. We all got some enjoyable, needed "trigger time"....22 LR, 9mm, and .45 ACP.

Had a big cookout yesterday at the parents house....Mushroom & Swiss Cheeseburgers, brats, jalapeno poppers, cole slaw, etc.....YUMMY!

Settled down last night to watch "Underworld:Evolution" with a double Woodford Reserve in my hand.

Life is DEFINITELY good! [Big Grin]

Went to my club range this PM,

Took two S&W .45 ACP revolvers, the 25-2 and the 626-2. Blew away 150 rounds of handloaded .45 Auto Rim ammo. One box was dated 1984 and every round fired in the 25-2. But the brass was over 30 years old and was getting brittle. Had several full length case splits right down to the web. Discarded the brass in the trash barrel to keep it from by recylced by the local brasshounds.

Came home and looked at the grass. Needs mowing. Tomorrow......

Retirement is highly underrated.

Today I'll refinished the grips on a little S&W Model 12 I bought over the weekend. Went to the range yesterday and shot it and a 9mm Colt AR.
I'm fixin' to go get in the Hot Tub as it's about 70 degrees outside right now.

After that, I think I'll go up to my local gun and knife shop and shoot the breeze for a while.
This afternoon, I do my workout routine and then have a beer and the Hot Tub again. Might cook out a steak on the tank.

Retirement is a tough life, especially when you're 57.

Well business has picked up dramatically, I've got more bullet orders than I can deal with, mainly from repeat customers I met at gun shows, and I ordered a mould set for .41 magnum this morning. People have been asking for those bullets for a long time now, and I have orders for 8,000 of them right now.

That's great, Cat! Have you given her an icecream cone yet? OMG! I gave my son one when he was teething and it went to the mouth and stayed there until it melted! I have pictures! LOL! Warning though, he was really upset when it was gone!

I made my first pot of Jambalaya last night, boy it was yummy! Thanks to a friend over at BWH for the recipe!

We are eating cherry tomatoes out of the garden, and the big ones are coming along nicely. Which reminds me, I need to go and water before work.

See ya!
take care

Hawk, Good to see you got that parcel of land that you talked about, a real sound investment. I'm glad that we always invested in farmland, it's at a premium here. Son rents all our 600 acres, plus other land too.

Catinhat, I always found if I held a popsicle for my kids when they were teething, that worked out great and they loved it, it sure cools down those gums and gives them alot of relief.

Tomorrow is my last day being an electrician. It is the only occupation I have had since I graduated high school back in '94.
Monday I will start a job taking care of fire alarms, cctv, and audio/radio systems.
Similar to electrical work I guess, but after 12 years of three phase commercial/industrial work and high voltage (5kV, 15kV), under 30 volt work will be totally different.

Hey Cat, me and the wifey would give unopened Icee pops for the kids to chomp on when they were teething. The cold pops would ease the pain of their little gums.

Just got back from the big city of Bowling Green, me and my lovely wife had dinner at a fine establishment. Mariah's serves up the best Bourbon filet I have ever had. Life is good, did some shopping. Visited with family and came back here. Wife is asleep and I will also be sawing logs in a bit.

Hey Cat,

Well there are still a good many serious shooters and handloaders at the shows, and seling to them has really boosted my business. Of course there are also the people selling totally non-gun related things, and at the Abilene show there was this prissy assed bitch next to me selling baked goods who didn't like my dog being there, and in fact didn't like dogs at all.

She went and complained to the promotors and they came over and admonished me to keep my dog behind my table and all sorts of other shit. My dog had done nothing but snooze behind my table, until people came over and wanted to pet him. A LOT of people wanted to pet him, and apparently the bitch didn't like my table getting all that attention.

Fuck her!

Lots of reloaders in Texas.

I like Mariahs as well. Their new restaurant, the Buckhead Cafe, is pretty good as well. Bowling Green has a good selection of restaurants.

There's one in every crowd I suppose

They're at EVERY type of Show Amy.. My wife makes Candles as well as B&B products, at one of her shows last year, she had a candle burning on her table so prospectice customers could smell how nicely they are scented. There was another candlemaker 2 rows over that claimed that it was HER candle that the customers were smelling (She had conveneiently "JUST" put it out, and out it away, and ran out of that particular scent)...when they got around to my Wife's table they realized that it was HER candle..but it was too late. There;'s always people looking to cut off your bal...umm legs [Big Grin]

Herb,

I have not been to the Buckhead Cafe, I have heard good things about it though. I can remember ohh..back in 81/82 there was not much of a selection of dining in the BG. If ya call "Po Folks" good dining. It was there on Scottsville Road, on the same side that Shoneys is on. BG sure has grown up since then.

Regards,
Booker
