Fire it in the backyard first, at cardboard, so you get the feel of the thing. Also rocks are less accurate than ball bearings because of their non-aerodynamic shape. If you bought a wrist-rocket and not the traditional Y-shaped one you should be aware that it can kill small game (so can the other, of course).

If you're seriously attacked by a large dog (small ones can be punted away) I suggest something like this. It will help keep noise down in the neighborhood.

But it could dribble in my pocket. The sling shot won't "leak rocks" in any significant way. (I'm planning to use native material, not those little metal shot pellets. I don't expect I'll be pulling the thing hard enough to do much damage, so the larger projectile is going to compensate in the surprise department.

She could use it for target practice. Or I could. I stopped by the local sporting goods store this evening and bought myself a slingshot. I'll practice a little against the fence in the back yard before I'm street ready. I am really tired of being rushed by dogs (there's one across the creek I won't mind nailing) and pestered by strays when I'm walking my dogs on their leashes. I figure pop a dog on the butt and it'll take off and leave us alone. I have no desire to injure the critters, just send them on their way.

Oh, I'm sorry Rapaire -- the bookseller sent me the wrong book. It's an autographed releae by Paula Deen, not Heinlein. Terrible mistake, so sorry.

How much did you make selling dirty postcards and disgusting little rubber novelties to the Getawayers? Was it enough to buy poor Mom a little "tea" for her teapot?

Hell, nevaer mind Xmas -- I have been a 404 error in my own right since I left Maryland. Gawd what a party. I think I had too little sleep and too much bourbon, but it mighta coulda been t'other eway around. It gets kind of hazy.

I got all of you your presents just as requested including the Heinlein book and the custom guitars. They wouldn't let me carry them on the plane though, but the nice folks at TSA in the Department of Motherland Father Land Homeland Security promised to ship them to me here at home, and I will send them along as soon as they get here.

There is no such thing as too much chocolate cake.

Ok, serious question for people round here...

I was recently charged with finding for a freind ' a cute, single, man, 20-25 , and a chocolate cake. I found her the man, and she rapidly expanded the description to include not gay, and several other things...

The question is, as the first part is now impossible, how much chocolate cake do I need to make?



I would ask on one of Boberts Womenz threads, but they all seem centred on toilet seats....

I have just looked at 100 out of 194 photographs of Getaway and didn't see Amos in any of them!!!!

You don't suppose he was in jail again, do you? It would just hurt Mom so deeply if he was back selling "French post cards" and those awful little rubber novelties that never work. I'm sure she would rather that he was simply lying drunk in the gutter, as usual.

Amos has to bring every presents. Preferably EXPENSIVE stuff, like custom made guitars and really good jewelry and extremely rare books (I have simple tastes would like the new Robert Heinlein novel, but autographed by BOTH authors).

Man, even in the Wild Highlands you gotta know Minnie Pearl! And as for what Tweed get up to all the time, well, usually when he's not in jail he's drunk. Khandu, on the other hand, does just the oppostie.

Would this make more sense if I knew who Minnie Pearl is, or what Tweed gets up the rest of the time, or anything in fact?

There is, of course, the very strong possibility that I really don't want to know, and making sense is vastly over-rated at the best of times...

Well, Mom, here's another day when you're supported by those who really care about you. Stilly's got a scraped knee and Bunn fell down during a sword dance and ended up cutting himself and I fell down the steps but we're still here with you. Even Rumanci's around somewhere. Of course, Khandu and Tweed have both pretty much left home and never ever write even though you'd think that they could spare some spare change for a stamp, seeing as how they're big and successful in Nashville, singing with Garth Brooks and hobnobbing with Travis Tritt and people like that.

Do you know who Tweed has been linked romantically with, according to the "National Globe And Inquirer", Mom? You'll never in your life guess! None other than Minnie Pearl, that's who! Yes, yes, I know. Take some deep breaths and go to your "happy place." That's good.

We have a lot of them here also. They seem to sneak in. I swapped out on in my bedroom because sometimes I work on projects (tiling, sewing, etc.) where I want to listen to something, maybe glance up occasionally. That tv is small enough to get moved to wherever I'm doing that work. And sometimes at night I listen to a few minutes of Charlie Rose before I go to sleep. The rest of them, well, the living room one is the one I watch most often, if I watch (I'm a radio person primarily). The front room is where the tv from my Dad's house is, and my son prefers that one. There is a little battery radio/tv in my office for storms, and a little LDC tiny one in the kitchen for storms. And there are some little battery operated ones in three other rooms. Then there is the garage sale color tv in my son's room for his video games, and the little 13" one that was in my daughter's room but now it's in my office because I decided I wanted to watch an old movie (I ran the coaxial cable from the front room VCR) while I did some filing in here. That doesn't count the computers that can play DVD. . .

All of this video power, and I listen to the radio most of the time. I think I've identified a couple of garage sale items.

Well, it ain't happened yet. But I oiled up the Tommy gun and got two magazines all loaded up just in case.

Bout two TVs this week. This makes four in a house with two people who watch MAYBE four hours per week. One, an LCD, is in Pat's office and the other is going into the Sun Room in the basement.

There is no TV in our living room or in my office. Awful stuff, that TV.

Hey MOM, sorry I wasn't around but I was busy yesterday. I was at Home Depot (not the natural home of organic gardening) and found a couple of trees I've wanted for my yard, so I brought them home and planted them right away. What trees, you ask? They're Italian Stone Pine, one that is well suited to my soil and climate, better than about any other pine. At HD they're labeled "live christmas trees" and pruned into the silliest conical shape, but they'll recover after a year or so. Anyway, I got the extra dirt out of the pot and unwrapped the roots and planted them. And then I saw a pickup pull into the woods across the street from me, and a couple of minutes later, I heard a chain saw start up!

I picked up my camera and phone and headed across the road. I snuck around to the side of these guys, a man and his two teen-aged sons (apparently) and I took a couple of photos, then walked out into the open and asked what they thought they were doing. They were gathering dead down wood, but they were in a park where no one is supposed to do that. It's part of the natural understory that breaks down, and I told him so. The man got ugly--"I know what you are, you're a goddam Democrat!" You can guess what my answer was regarding his politics, and MOM, I did use the "F" word. But then, I stood behind his pickup about 20' back, and since his tailgate was down, I squatted and took a photo of his pickup, then I walked away. "Who gave you permission to take a photo of my truck?" he shouted. I told him to call the sheriff to complain. "No, never mind. I'll call the sheriff and complain," I told him. He tossed his stuff in his truck and drove out of the park just a minute or so behind my hasty exit. He was still shouting as he drove off. And I have a crystal clear photo of his license. I'll call the village Monday and ask what their policy is on collecting wood in the park. Maybe they don't care. But as long as I can fake them out, I will. :)

Dang near everyone is out of town, I guess. Even the Legion Hovel is mostly empty, but that's because they're all at Toenail-Eatin' Jake's political rally up in Potosi Gulch.

Jake's running for Guvner (as he spells it) on the Party ticket. It's called that because nobody could make up their minds on what to call the group. Jake's platform revolves mostly around free sandwiches when you "buy a free beer" and shipping all of Idaho's unused chicken manure to California "where they're used to a lot of that kind of thing."

They must have had a pretty good rally last night, because this morning's news mentioned that the Idaho State Police SWAT Team attended in full battle gear.

The State's political pundits give Jake's chance to be Governor exactly the same odds as those of Lord North, Osama bin Laden, Robespierre, and Jenghis Khan.
