Anomalism 5-30.5 In my hand at last.    2005-05-30 05:46:21 ET
I made a deal with mrs Anomalous regarding Saturday work, in that what ever I earn on weekends is mine for my toys. this has in the past been side work but in the case of this weekend it was in the form of a T&M job for the company that no other day was available for. The result was that I earned just enough to buy the 357 mag that my local gun shop was holding for me. Now I have another caliber to buy(Oh joy!). They imediatly offered to put this nice 9mm Tokarov ($150) in layaway for me. Since I oddly don't have a 9mm handgun, and as it happens have been contemplating which 9mm I would most like to have, it worked out well and I said "Deal!"
In related news, a friend of our the wife of the paster of a church we used to attend (too far away now) came out to visit and hike our cliffs and spend the day and stuff. One of the cool things about having an awsome property is beeing able to share it with friends and we are hoping to be able ot do it more often. Our friend asked if she could shoot one of the guns because she had never fired one before. "Of course" we said and got out 4 to pick from and ended up talking her into shooting all of them. For me it is a huge source of enjoyment to whatch some one experience the adventure and excitement of something new to them, (not just shooting). We wrote down for her what she had fired so she could make her husband jealous when she got home. I'm lookig forward to seeing them both again soon.

 Anomalism 5-15.5 Happy green    2005-05-15 05:08:53 ET
It is a beautiful bright clear morning. The trees have finaly leafed out and are showing that very happy glowing green that you only see in the spring. I will have to cut the grass today, it will be the second time for my new old mower. (a 10 year old 48" comercial walk behind I bought out of the bone yard at work) The thing sat in the weather for a year before I got it for $500, they cost $4000 new. While I'm at the mowing thing I think I will bush hog at my beard. The tails seen in my pics have been shortened, they were getting out of control. They are still downward spikes but at a more managable length.
Had another shoosting event last sunday. Dropper brought over a black and white dog puppet and I put up the bad radiator that I pulled out of the jeep. We mcBlasted till we ran out of ammo. My Argentine .45 realy likes puppets, at 27yds I could not seem to miss. Every shot got a puff of stuffing(and one of the ears). It was cool but odd none of the other guns were so dangerous to puppets. We also got out my wifes SKS and put 35 rnds into a 30 rnd mag and proceeded to make it sizzle(only minor burns). Then it got silly, we got out the old single shot 20 gauge and started shooting it one handed. I did it getto style, (gun held high turned side ways) pretty damn funny done with a shot gun.

 Anomalism 5-11 .5 Panda biscuits    2005-05-11 18:00:43 ET
I'm sitting hear eating panda biscuits and drinking beer and watching Omega Doom on my pc. I can hardly believe it, I actualy found some else who collects skulls. And oddly enough she is from OH as well, she is Dwarf Star. I'm mostly just listening to the film. It has what I think is an awsome sound track which is not availible seperatly. Question, Can just the music be ripped from a dvd and put on a cd?

 Anomalism 4-25.5 It is snowing again.    2005-04-25 03:22:24 ET
It has been snowing for 24 hours, a few days ago it was 80 degrees. We did finnaly start mowing this past week and I went from 10 hour days imediatly to 12/13 hour days, felt good. The snow thing kinda sucks though. Cant work today which means I'll have to work saturday. Had a gret time last sunday, had some friends over for a cook out and hiking. I took thier kids for a hike on the rocks. We started at the secret passage in my cliff and took the path south into the park. I took them through all the fisures and caves and behind the handrails and we climbed on rocks where park visitors aren't sposed to go. We got our feet wet and bumped our heads (at least I did, the little ones don't have that trouble in the caves)and had a great! no loss of blood good time.

 Anomalism I saw !    2005-04-07 01:00:19 ET
I saw a red fox at work yesterday. We've been working spring cleanup at Progressive insurance and apparently this fox just sort of lives on the grounds there. He is casual as can be and doesn't seem to mind people at all, he just came walking down the steps and sontered by, stopped sat down and looked at me for a minute then went over in the junnipers and took a knap. Cool huh!
