I'm sitting here eating Pot stickers and Perogies, two boilable foods I found in the freezer. Very tasty and very easy,but rather pale looking. Well I got the broken drive shaft truck back, now it has a hole in the oil pan. I swear its naver ending with this truck.
I had a minor problem with my primary mower but I was able to repair it tues. Yesterday I had to stop work and rush down to the clerk of courts to pay a traffic ticket(a day late), cost an extra $25 That sucks I could be buying bullets for my new toy with that money. It was my own fault though.
Today I was mowing along peacfully when from out of nowere a Bald Face hornet lands on my right shoulder. Now it takes both hands to operate this mower so I just can't let go to swat at this thing, and besides it didn't look like it was pissed. I was a little freaked for a second, but then I just watched start wandering around on me. I did get nervous when it headed over on to my back. It all ended well, Im not stung or anything(cool). Later a cicada landed no my other side briefly. Some how I must have looked very tree ish to bugs today(go figure).
In other news, I went back to the gun show(the cat hair is back on the keyboard ugh!) and took with me Zane who is a friend of my son who is in the navy. I was distracted from observing freaky people by all the guns and ammo, so I may have missed a few. I did buy some copper solvent from a guy that looked more like a Slim Wittman than a human being should be allowed to. There also was a sort of grey haired Ned Flanders guy there selling Russian sniper rifles, he turned out to be pretty cool cuz I like Russian guns. I had only meant to buy ammo for my CZ52 but I could not resist this one Argentine manufactured model 1911. It was in good shape(made in 1942) and the price was right. It is also possible that it was made with steel salvaged from the scuttled German pocket battleship Grahf Spee. So after the show Zane and I showed up at the pistol range with no less than 6 guns and fired 600 rounds in 2 hours, it was a very good day.
