I can say with almost 100% certainty that it is not Friday afternoon. I will be in Atlanta Friday evening, so if it were Friday afternoon I would be driving in the direction of that metropolis. Since my current environs do not in any way resemble either Interstate 65 or Interstate 85, I must conclude that it is not Friday afternoon. If a couple of semi trucks driving at precisely the legal speed limit should suddenly appear out of nowhere, I may be forced to reconsider my conclusion.

No, it is not Tuesday. We have eliminated Tuesday. Today is Crawfishday. This change has been instituted because nobody knows what a tue is, but almost everyone knows what a crawfish is. You may call it Crayfishday if that is more in line with your regional dialect.

If you were fond of Tuesday and are displeased by this change, just be glad we didn't change it to Hogsheadcheeseday or Viennasausageday instead.

SOmewhere--not here, certainly, but somewhere it is Friday afternoon, and the offices are closing up in anticipation of a three-day weekend. I believe this place is somewhere near the Orion constellation, but someday...

Y'all tell such tales. Honest to Gosh. Hell, I have just read three or four books from that writer feller Tim Cahill--one is called "Nibbled to Death by Ducks", for example--compared to which, I mean, your stories are almost pale and paltry yearnings. He is such a mensch, I swan.

Often in the evenings after two glasses of rioja, I take the faire dogge Maggie for a stroll to relieve her of any burdens of micturition for the night ahead, and thanks to the mellowing influence of Bacchus I often sing, softly, the old songs as I stroll by the darkened homes of my neighbors. Tonight O sang the whole story of Barb'ry Ellen, and then the long saga of Lord Lovell, both of which I recalled perfectly. ANother night it might be Carrickfergus or Old Reilly's Daughter or some variant on Patrick Spence. The dark homes do not complain, and Maggie Dogg finds it good accompaniment for her snuffling and peeing.

And so, good night, Mrs Murgatroyd, wherever you are...

#12 shot from a pistol for an armoureddillo? Are ya gonna put the barrel against his head? Or am I missin sumpin?

I probably used the term "rat shot" in error. The shot cartridges I have for the .38 are #9 shot.

The blackness was absolute, a dark such as someone trapped by the collapse of the roof of the mine would know. And there I was, over a mile beneath the surface, trapped by such a collapse. Worse, I could hear and feel the stope filling with water. Overhead, the hanging wall was groaning.

Extraction was made under sniper fire, but that was to be expected. Later, my ankle bound, I was sipping some small barrel bourbon with the Mission Commander. She said, "A good job in spite of a bad landing." I nodded my thanks.

There I was, two hundred meters up, swaying in a parachute harness over the total blackness below. Night jumps into mountains, I thought, can make for rather uncomfortable landings.

And I did land. Fortunately, I was limp and made a pretty good PLF. When I stood up I realized that I'd badly sprained my ankle.

Nevertheless, I gathered up my pack from the equipment chute (luckily, it didn't land far away and the tiny beacon guided me to it) and started to walk the two kilometers to my target. Two quite painful kilometers, and that's if they had dropped me on the correct LZ.

They're opening a store about 50 miles north of here. Unless I have a good reason to go up that way I'll buy what I need from them (ain't much) online. I don't see the need to drive 100 miles round trip just to get a fishing lure, especially since there are perfectly good huntin'/fishin'/campin'/hikin'/climbin'/etc. stores within a couple miles of the house. Same with all the stores up that way.

Besides, I don't need any guns/boats/ammunition. As for the stuff with their logo on it -- well, if you want me to be a walking billboard for you, good, you can pay me for it. Caps and shirts and stuff with a commercial logo one it are ones I wanted, and they're few and far between.

You can set up a couple of planks along either side of the path the armadillo uses and let them end at the opening of a live trap. They're really that stupid that they'll follow the edge and enter the cage.

It isn't good for (or sporting) to shoot an animal in a cage, best to release it down the road a piece.

Coincidentally, only a couple of weeks ago, I was waiting for an armadillo to come out from under my house so I could shoot it. I was armed with a 9mm, albeit a carbine instead of a pistol. I usually use a 12 gauge shotgun for varmints, but figured the rifle would be a little quieter on my wife's ears since I was close to the house. The armadillo didn't come out before I got tired of waiting, so I didn't get a chance to shoot my wife.

Since that non-incident, I have inherited a Smith & Wesson .38 Special and a box of rat shot cartridges for it. I suppose that will be my armadillo armament in the future since it will free a hand up to aim a flashlight. No more trying to aim shotguns by moonlight.

Bullet Intended for Pesky Armadillo Ends Ip Injuring Shooter's Mother-in-law

From: The Washington Post

This is the story about the improbable journey of a bullet, a doomed armadillo and a very lucky mother-in-law.

All Larry McElroy wanted to do was get rid of the armadillo, which was no doubt doing what armadillos do best: digging as if its life depended on it (it does) and tearing up a yard in southwest Georgia.

So McElroy pulled out a 9mm pistol in rural Lee County and took aim.

Before we go any further, it's important to note that this is, apparently, a perfectly legitimate response to the situation.

According to James Morgan of the University of Georgia's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, shooting is one of the recommended ways to kill an armadillo.

"At first I ask if they live in the city or county, because shooting is an effective way of getting rid of them," Morgan told NBC affiliate WALB. "However, you have to be safe when you do that."

Okay, back to the story, because what happened next is … well, puzzling.

McElroy's bullet hit the armadillo but kept going, ricocheting off the animal's hard, leathery shell. It hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, pierced her recliner and hit her in the back, according to WALB. The bullet ended up about 100 yards from where McElroy pulled the trigger.

The good news: His mother-in-law, 74-year-old Carol Johnson, is all right!

"She was walking around on her own power and talking," Lee County Sheriff's Office investigator Bill Smith told the station. "It didn't appear to be too severe."

Johnson, Smith said, was taken to a local hospital.

The armadillo, however, didn't fare so well. Although the bullet didn't pierce the animal's shell, it ultimately killed it.

"Just the circumstances, just all the way around, the whole situation was unusual," Smith noted.

Next time, McElroy might want to try using a trap.

Armadillos, by the way, have been blamed for spreading leprosy to humans across the South, including three recent cases in Florida.

The difficulty of swallowing a microphone depends on the type of mic. You could learn to swallow a Shure SM-57 or SM-58 with a little practice, but one of those big-assed things they use in recording studios, well, you'd probably have to chew it up. Then there's the corded or cordless issue. If you swallow a mic with a cord, you can pull it back up like a goldfish. But if you swallow a cordless mic you should probably follow it with a strong laxative 'cause there's only one way that sucker's comin' out.

My ancestors also had an "s" appended to their name, but it was for sheep shagging, not stealing. But they weren't alone in their village. Every male who lived there had that same "s" except for one young man who'd been born with a club foot and couldn't run fast enough to catch a sheep.

My Irish (nee Wales) forefathers came to the fly infested bog country of New Brunswick, Canada with an 's' branded on the end of our name for sheep stealing from wealthy landlords installed by the evil English and their murderous army. They came to Saint John and were promptly placed in quarantine on Partridge Island until deemed fit to be granted a parcel of land and pay taxes on said mire to the Crown. In the British Empire, one does not own land - miss your rent and you are gone. Just like in the old country.

They toiled in the sandy soil and peat for many decades, supplementing the meager crops with wild game and fish and what could be earned from lumbering King's Arrow pine and saw wood. Then, a twist of fate led Gramps and Gramma to Moncton. Tis a family secret which I have shared but with only one cousin after I became Chieftan upon the death of my uncle Charles Thomas. He shall be next, by my word, as the eldest is unworthy.

My other forefathers came from Normandy, France. LeBlanc and nee Melonson. Another family secret about why Mémère and Pépère landed in Moncton is well known but never explicitly discussed. Essentially, Pépère ran away from the seminary three times. The last time, he sought refuge in a good place and his mémère refused to release him to his parents so he landed in Moncton with other family. He, a Master Baker, as trained in the seminary, and his wife "Nellie" did well operating their small store for many years.

So, here I sit. Freeze my ass in winter and roast my nuts in summer. Still, it's better than sheep stealing to survive.

Seventeen of the bastards now share the mounds with the Famine victims in the Skibbereen cemetery. We put another forty or so on a coffin ship carrying cholera passengers that was bound for Montreal, savin' that it never arrived.

There was another nest of them that cooperated with the Black and Tans and they were dealt with accordingly, root and branch.

This Shane McBride mog spoke truer than he knew when he said "we McBrides ALWAYS hang together!" The truth is, we hanged 25 of the bastards simultaneously at a mass hanging in Dingle in 1852....this due to many grievous offences committed by the McBrides in and around nearby Dangle, a small community that was infested with the progeny of that accursed name. Guilty of every known form of vice, these stocious chancers and slags had caused grief and loss to decent people all over the Emerald Isle, and the general population finally rose up to exterminate the worst of them and expel the others from our shores, putting them on ships bound for America and Canada. Any who refused to go were either hanged or shot. This fecking Shane gowl is a spanner of the lowest sort, and a disgrace to Ireland.

You can speak of your Dooleys and Tooleys and Flynns,
Great louts with long records of terrible sins,
But for real human scumballs who ought to have died
You'll never find worse genes than from a McBride.

Their DNA's rotten and broken and weak
They can't breed a hero, professor or geek
ANd their flesh smells like trout that has quite putrified
Those dumkopf do-nuffinks, the shameless McBrides.

They are shiftless, immoral, with no sense of class
They talk about nothing but beer, tits and ass
For a clan whose raw life force is quite petrified
Just pick up the phone and call a McBride!

You can find them in slums, and in bars playing pool
But you won't find one of them in any real school
They are fools, and they drool, and they're fouled up inside,
Those jadrool mammaluccas they call the McBrides.

So if you are seeking a lifestyle of pride
With honors bestowed, and a smart, pretty bride
Don't hang out with scumbags, who never have tried,
And flee from the bums who say "I'm a McBride".

True. My finger got carried away. Any knife is deadly in the right hands, even my little 1.5 inch (that's the big blade) Buck pocket knife. For knife fighting, I've been trying to decide for some time among the Ka-Bar, the Fairbairn-Sykes, and the rondel. All have something to be said for them, especially as you don't want the grip to slip in your hand if it gets bloody or wet (which leaves out my old Buck General, as the black grip would slide too easily).

As a point of interest, I've used the Buck knife in many other ways, including as a froe for splitting firewood, but it's not really a fighting knife as it stands. I have a sentimental attachment to it, as I bought it when I didn't know if I would be in Vietnam in a month or what and I couldn't afford a .357.
