    Who is NOE? Only to add. If a vendor charges handling fees, I move on to someone else.

    rking22 references their tuxedo kitty chirping. Mittens also peeps all the time. Usually it sounds like "eek eek", so half the time I call her peeper. She is so full of energy and goes over the top on affection. My wife says that I am "Smitten with...

    From my experience, stickies work best when the original poster takes all pertinent content from thread responses and edits the OP to add them into it. There are many good threads that are stickied but it takes reading through several pages of posts...

    Mittens found the bedroom.... At 2:00AM.... She settled down occasionally but it was a night of Foot Attacks, Finger Nibbling and many bouts of aggressive "Not rubbing the cat!" head rubbing. We need to feed her before bed. Not that she doesn't...

    She has only seen her on Skype. They live 650 miles away but hopefully will come down in October for our oldest son's wedding. If she comes here, he and "John Dad" as I am called will get up early every morning to go feed Mittens as that is when...

    We have a small fountain that one of our sons got us a few years ago. The cats love drinking running water. You might try something like that.

    Top of the day all. Mittens is doing very well. I was actually just playing fetch with her. We have these small furry mice that she loves. I'll throw it and she chases it and proudly carrying it back towards us. The other girls have turned the...

    I had a bunch of .223/5.56 reloads that I did several years ago. For some reason the sizing die hadn't gone all the way down on some and they bulged ever so slightly. It was enough that they wouldn't chamber in some of my ARs. I got a case check...

    I love critters and for the record, spiders are not critters. We regularly catch and admire many reptiles and amphibians in our yard, take a picture or two and release the victim of our fascination back into the wild or an area more habitable to...

    I goofed on an order and ended up with a box of 100 Hornady .452 250 grain XTP bullets. Although they can be used in 45ACP loads, they are not ideal. Typically, these are for Long Colt or other rounds that can use a .452 bullet. $35.00 delivers.

    I am not sure why some states will accept a carry permit and others do not. IIRC it has to do with the renewal period for them. What I find funny is that states like Illinois have a 3 day cooling off period to buy handguns. They should waive that...

    Darn am I glad that I left Illinois. East Peoria to be exact. Here in Tennessee, as long as the NICS goes through, we are good to go. Although I was told "No more guns". Or Ammo... I pushed back against the ammo as my FAL is very hungry.

    A few weeks back, I picked up a Baby Desert Eagle in 45ACP for $600.00. I've never been one for anything Desert Eagle but this is one sweet handgun. I might try to score one in 9mm if they shoot as accurately as this one does.
