So, whats for dinner at Solent?

Lemmee check, fish and the neighbors. 

Oh, neighbors are coming over? 

No, they are on the menu.  Want leg or arm?

Yeah, not Solent.  With a name like that NFW to convince me that Green is Algae.

I think the bigger goings on would be more like the GCA of 17 being pushed through Congress.  More limiting and tighter on us all than the 34 multiplied by the 68 subtracting out 6 from the 86, adding the 93 multiplying it all by 94, subtracting 03 and 04 and 05, dividing by 08, subtracting 12.

Saving you all the math, it makes us Russia.

I bought a blow up boat. The wife was griping until she saw that it could carry 400 lbs, had oars, a double action air pump, repair kit, and was almost 7 feet long. Then she said that I have to go back and buy a second one because she wants her own boat. I guess she has a point because if we both get in the same boat, then where are we going to put our BOB and other supplies? Its not a toy but its also not a bulletproof Kevlar boat either.

Paddle upriver.  I could use another rifle at the farm.  Relatives 450 acres with about 100 head of angus.

That is tooooo cooool pkveazey!

Don't forget PFD's. (Personal Flotation Devise). Here is the one I like as you just wear it like a belt and if you need it you pull the rip cord and the vest fills with co2 from a small canister in the belt.

I have been mulling this over and over in my mind. What would the USofA look like today post the shooting at the baseball field IF there was no one there to of shot the shooter? In theory he could have killed up to 30 Congressmen and another ten or so staffers. That would have been ~10% of the GOP in Congress.

It would have been in essence another 9/11 moment.

My mind wanders with all of the bad possibilities like:

> Stock market collapse,
> With pensions relying so much on the market, I could see pensions failing across the country,
> ANTIFA or ISIS folks taking advantage of the situation,
> In our chaos, Russia taking over all off Ukraine, N.Korea invading S.Korea, Iran launching an attack on Israel,
> US Dollar being dropped as the world currency,
> Martial law,
> Runs on the bank,
> .....

You get my drift.

I can only believe it was an act of Divine Providence that there were two armed Capital Police there to stop Satan's imp.

Just some food for thought at 0405 hrs this morning.

Some great stuff gents  :thumbsUp:

Me, I didn't put on any winter weight this year and as of last Friday I am 10 pounds from my goal weight wise. Did it through walking and keeping my carbs between 100 - 150 a day. Averaging ~125.

Now with summer here, the other 10 pounds will melt off with all of the crap I have to do to get ready for the winter months like:

> Gardening,
> Cutting, splitting and then stacking wood,
> House and yard maintenance,
> Building a couple of elevated deer blinds and a chicken house,
> and.........

I agree 100% with Nemo's comments.

To add to his comments MrsMac's EDC is a Ruger SP101 hammerless .357 magnum. We load it with standard .38 special rounds and at 10 feet or less she hits center mass. I like Nemo's comment, " If she is ever in an area where she needs needs more than 5 or 6 rounds, she should know not to be there before she goes."

I loved Nemo's comment on purses in the grocery store. Not only do some women walk away from their cart that houses their purse, 80% of the time their wallet and/or cell phone is right on top. No need to take the whole purse.

So JoJo, the XYL is defiantly going forward with her own gun? Cool!

Not much garden space at Solent.  And they are named way too much like Soylent.

Nemo
You have a point there.
