I saw something on the news that made me giggle out loud. lol A man was giving a speech in Brussels and some fool walked up on the platform and points a "gas gun" in the guys face. The guy with the gun got the holy doo doo beat out of him...slammed to the floor, slapped, punched, kicked, etc. His plan went all wrong. LOL Thank God he didn't get to shoot the guy speaking!

Hey there Nope. I'm glad you like that new gun. Sounds like a nice collection. I was going to buy a s&w 40 the other day and somebody beat me to it. Oh I wasn't talking about this ordeal with gun regulation being a crisis. It is a small family crisis that might cost me a little money. As soon as I get that ironed out I'll be shopping for another gun. I know of one I want but I'm afraid it will be long gone before I can get to it. They are going fast around here!
I sure am glad that we don't live somewhere like New York! I can't get over the new gun "laws" that their governor signed in the other day. This "grandfathering in" certain types of guns is a TOTAL TRICK if you ask me! Getting everybody to admit to what all they have is the first step. Then there will be another crisis come along then they are going to come knocking on our doors for what we admitted to having! I have got a bad feeling about all of this.
You have it right. But is getting very hard to get the type of gun you want. They are selling very quickly. Federal propositions may not grandfather in some guns, leading to a scenario such as this.
You purchase a gun legally, but you are a "criminal" if you possess the type of gun if you have not been "grandfathered." Perhaps there will be a buyback program, such as in New York's. But you will get nominal payment for the gun. Most programs that use the grandfather clause allow a period of time (a year?" to turn in the gun. If you do not, you are a criminal. Remember that federal law trumps state law, unless the law is unconstitutional, whereas the courts must decide this. This is as I understand it, anyway.

An 18 foot bass boat with a 150 or 200 hp outboard will run in excess of 20 grand or better and then you need a matching SUV or truck to tow it and you know what that costs. It is all about what one prefers to do. I can't afford that or a Harley to only ride when the weather is nice.
And don't forget the cost of the trailer needed to tow it. And the cost of docking privileges, taxes paid to the state (personal property tax in Ky and excise tax in Ma.... same thing.

I saw on the news that KY-Rep Ed Whitfield was down this way at a gun show today. He spoke and said that they were going to do everything possible to fight Obama's new gun regulations.
Those types of guns are available here but you have to jump on them because they are going fast! I missed that one by about 30 minutes-bummer!

That's not bad at all for a trip like that. Yeah I bet that toy put the hurt on you. Real good toys are like that huh?:) Have you ever got into knife or hatchet throwing? It looks pretty cool...and yes I am a child at heart.:)
I've always had a thing for edged weapons and began collecting small run to one off tactical knives back in about 1980 when I lived one block from Randall made knives in Orlando. I've seen some pretty good throwers at black powder events but just never got into it. Yep, my toy cost more than my Harley or Jeep, lol, but I could turn it tomorrow at a nice profit.

WKG, I hope things work out for you and you get to purchase that new toy. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!
Thank you much Nope.:) The past couple days have been a little bit trying to say the least. Last night an incident happened that "broke the camel's back" and I had a private temper tantrum outside kicking some stuff around - stuff in your right mind you wouldn't kick. lol This morning I woke up and my foot was hurting and this little voice said, "Don't you remember kicking that stuff around last night???" DUH! LOL So now I am limping and still flustered. LOL I had an incident the other day with a law enforcement type person pissing all over IV Amendment "searches and seizure" rights. I can't go into it because you never know who might be reading this. But anyhow, there have been some trying things going on lately....Just in case anybody is wondering, no it wasn't dope or anything like that, it wasn't even illegal! It just wasn't supposed to be caught where it was and it was an accident that it was even there. It worked out okay but it still pissed me off! Oh well, some things are just very frustrating but if you think about it things could be much, much worse.

That's good. I don't feel as bad about splurging a little bit on a toy if I know I can at least get my money back out of it if I need to - and a profit, that much better. I was thinking the other day that if they keep on with the gun balony we may all need to learn how to use some knives, swords, hatchets and such until they outlaw them too! LOL

The incident involving Natalie Wood's death is suspicious. As I remember reading about it, witnesses stated that she was very drunk. That alone could have impaired her judgement, reflexes, etc. On the other hand, the couple was in an intense argument prior to her falling overboard. I did hear about officials doing a cold case investigation.
I saw a report about it a few years ago. I think it was the captain of the boat that said that when she fell in the water Wagner would not let him even turn the lights on so they could find her. My radar says he is guilty as sin.

Don't feel all alone out there, U.H. I knew when I went to bed so early that I was making a HUGE mistake, but I just couldn't hold my eyes open any more last evening.

This coffee is sure tasty though!!

Hope you're able to doze back off again. I'm gonna try it again here in a little bit. Hopefully anyway.

WKG, there was a program on T.V. one night where they interviewed the captain of the boat they were on the night she 'drowned'. So what you say is the honest truth.

Then they proceeded to interview a few of the witnesses from other boats anchored nearby that night who gave written statements to the police saying that they heard a woman screaming for help, but no spot/search lights were on anywhere, not even from Wagner's boat. No one could really even tell where the screams where coming from. And if you've ever spent any time out on the water, you know that sound can carry and get distorted to a certain degree. So at the time, they didn't even know where the screams for help were coming from. They had no idea a woman was actually drowning..

I think he did it too. Always have. She might have fallen in by accident due to being under the influence, but he sure didn't make any attempts to help her when she was screaming for help. That makes him guilty in my opinion.

I have been up for about an hour stoking my stove and making my coffee and sending emails to a special friend that don't have much longer for this world and it makes me happy to do that and to be up drinking my own good coffee. I almost left the scene 4 years ago this week, so I am up celebrating my life and if it ends in the next few minutes I hope they put on my stone "He enjoyed living".

Material things in this life just don't matter all that much. If one can afford them, then get them and enjoy while you have them because just like one's health they can be wiped out in a heart beat.

Henry David Thoreau said "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could learn what it had to teach, and not when it came my time to die, discover that I had not lived".

He did not live all that long and died at age 44, but I suspect he knew how to make the best of that time. Do we?

I hope your friend recovers fully. I'm very sorry to hear that they are going through such a rough time.

I also strongly believe in miracles and divine intervention. It's nice of you to send them support like that and I'm sure they appreciate it. I'll put them on my mental prayer list and ask God to heal them too if it's His will..

I'm certain that your headstone will have a very nice quote on it, AW. You seem to be a good person who thinks of other people more than your own self.. That's a good quality and the Lord admires that. So does your friend, I can guarantee it..

Everything I own should hopefully and eventually benefit my family when I'm gone. Right down to jewelry, my property, etc. I try to make investments that will grow, even with baubles and such. The Harley even appreciates over the years.. So even what I have now that I get enjoyment from, should also bring joy to those I love when I pass over.

I've lost everything I owned twice due to tragedies beyond my control. The first time was extremely hard, I didn't think mentally that I'd survive it. But I learned in time that it was all just 'stuff' and that my life was more important. Through the years, you accumulate more 'stuff' anyway. Adversity makes you so much stronger if you don't let it win in the end.

Anyone that's not seen hard times and extreme heartache yet, has NO way to know exactly how fortunate they are. They still take things for granted, but you really can't fault them for it. Are they simply very lucky people? Perhaps. But it does something to make you stronger when the badness falls and you overcome it and actually grow from the experience.

Thanks. My friend is most fearful of some upcoming heart valve repair. I saw something someone posted on here some time back that has stuck with me.

You are in a room with the door shut and the dog is on the other side of the door. It knows not what is on the other side of the door but only that it's Master is in there and that is all that it needs or cares to know.
