@Imposter.. I am sure you know that a 22 short does not pack much punch, but a Long Rifle or Hollow Point will do plenty of damage. My revolver is a long barrel Western Style Harrison-Richardson. I was watching Hoss Cartwright take his gun belt off the hall tree and decided to hang mine on a wooden peg drilled into the old barn lumber wall next to my recliner. LOL

My 7.62 by 39 is a light weight Egyptian clone of the imfamous Russian version. The 20 guage is a bolt action with a poly-choke. I can raise quite a bit of H E double toothpicks with any one of them. LOL And I would rather be tried by a jury of 12 than packed away by 6 necktie wearers.

German Shepherd went out to the tree and decided to stay and investigate for varmits of either 2 or 4 legs, and found none. I really would not want to be a stranger walking up to my door. For some reason, even the Jehovah Witness people have lost faith and don't come around anymore. hehehe

Yes, AW, Kitty Wells performed "Gathering Flowers..." around '47 or '49. Hank Williams did back up if I recall. She was the original performer, and Ralph Stanley made this nostalgic wonder popular in the bluegrass genre. One of my favorites is "Rank Stranger."

Good morning peoples!

Wow, chilly this morning! Got hubby up for work. Kiddies are all snug in their beds. Hubby and I shared quiet time with coffee, hot cinnamon rolls, Bacon and a log on the fire with a "little prayer wheel turning" before hubby had to hit the cold road.

AW... page 6 was the only song I couldn't place. However, I know all the others very well. Dad was a minister of a little white, country church. Traditional hymns were the choice of the congregation. I started playing piano, by ear,(and yes, kinda difficult getting my head in perfect position to do such a task ;)) so, all the old hymns are my "comfort zone" and I can play these with very little thought.

Misty...Rank Stranger...now, there's an oldies but goodie.

Do y'all remember, "The Ninety and Nine" ?

We watched Rudolph last night. The skiff of snow on the ground added to the exhuberant glee of the kiddies. I just soaked in their excitement for holidays and pushed all the internal gloom behind me.

Lots of preparations today for dinnerS tomorrow. I have visions of my sweet mama with her "old faithful" apron on flitting around the kitchen getting her masterpieces concocted. Oh my, she was a true southern lady and could "throw down" in the kitchen. Her dumplings were delectable! I remember my brother bringing in young groundhogs, rabbit, squirrel...mama making it with a rich gravy and biscuits of hot, homemade biscuits.

I wish all you peeps a beautiful, wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving.

BTW...AW? will "dog" get a bone?(Love AC/DC Jam...GIVING THE DOG A BONE!)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

@KyBrownEyes.. Yes I remember the Ninety and Nine, also the portrait with the Good Shepherd and the flock with HIM holding the one lost lamb.

Page 6 Lyrics,
verse 1.
How sweet and happy seem
Those days of which I dream
When memories call them now and then
and with what rapture sweet
my weary heart would beat,
If I could hear my mother pray again.

Verse 2.
She used to pray that I
on Jesus would rely
and always walk the shining gospel way
So trusting still his love
I seek that home above
Where I shall meet my mother some glad day

Verse 3.
Within the old homeplace
her patient smiling face
was always spreading comfort, hope, and cheer
and when she used to sing
to her Eternal King
It was the songs the angels loved to hear

Verse 4.
Her work on earth is done
the life crown has been won
and she will be at rest with Him above
and some glad morning she
I know will welcome me
to that eternal home of peace and love

Chorus:
If I could only hear
My Mother pray again
if I could onlu hear her tender voice as then
So happy I would be
Twould mean so much to me
If I could hear my mother pray again

Going old school (dated pre-1850) with one of my favorites for the dulcimer.

Wish I Was A Single Girl Again

When I was single, Lord I dressed so fine
Now that I'm married, Lord, I go ragged all the time
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

Got the dishes to wash and the spring to do to
When you are married, Lord you've got it all to do
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

I got three little babies lying in the bed
One of them's so weary Lord, he can't raise up his head
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

Along comes that drunkard and he call them all a bunch of fools
So I wash their little feet and I send them off to school
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

When I was single, I ate biscuits and pie
Now that I'm married, it's eat cornbreador die
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

When I was single, marrying was all I craved
Now that I'm married, Lord, I'll go troubled to my grave
Lord, don't I wish I was a single girl again

Reminds me of:

Mammie's little babies love shortening, shortening
Mammie's little babies love shortening bread
Call for the doctor and the doctor said
"Give them babies some shortening bread"

It is snowing so hard here in Central Kentucky just south of Lexington, that when I went up the hill to feed the chickens and add water to their lighted tub, and get 7 eggs so far today; by the time I came back over the hill my tracks had already disappeared.

Hadn`t heard or thought of this one for years! Just started to sing it and my wife came in to see if it was me! Thanks for the memory!(Bob Hope)

No a .22 short dont travel very fast but a distant relative of mine was killed by six rounds from a .22 short, one of those old 25 buck Saturday night special pistols, it was before my time but I've been told he was in a tussle over a woman, won the fistfight but the other guy went to his car and got a little snub nose .22 short and emptied it into him. He died about six days later.
I took a .22 lr in my left shoulder many many years ago, they dug it out but the wound still huts when its cold, like it is now.

Not as much as I use to. All kidding aside, you're surely welcome to come! All I ask is that you leave one shoe here to remember you by pretty girl.

Wolf my first car was a big old '57 Chrisler 300c, you remember them I bet, with the big fins? Hank blaring through those worn out speakers driving way too fast on a gravel road, I lost her down a 40ft bank. The carcass is still there to this day and so are the scars on my chest from the wreck.. Man I loved that car, she was in near pristine shape when I got her.
What was your first ...horseless carriage Lol?

My Thanksgiving dinner consists of cooking in 2 dutch ovens today on top of my wood burning stove. One contains pinto beans with country ham bits and some salt pork (that I should not have but what the heck). The other is a meat loaf. I will fry cornbread and make mashed potatoes tomorrow and dog and I will pig out and be Thankful we don't have to eat turkey. I don't care for domestic turkey, but my hunting neighbors up the road about a mile never brought any wild ones so far this year. POOH!!

I always love the way men talk about their favorite car like it was their first live. All sweet, sexy and erotic. Reminds me of that George Jones song, where the guy pulls into the gas station and the old man was describing his first love and the young guy that it was the corvette he wanted not the brunette in the front seat.

Long and lean, every young mans dream
She turned every head in town.
Built for fun, to handle son.
I'm glad that you dropped in, she reminds me of the one I had back then
