    The cicadas, crickets, locust or whatever keep me company when I'm alone. Especially when I don't want company. It's just a sad fact of life that we get smarter too late to avoid it. As a child, I grew up alone at the other end of nowhere. I...

    Remember that that flag, no matter how tattered and worn, is still personal property. To remove it without permission and cut the rope is breaking the laws it represents. Publishing a picture and the phone # is a great idea that will likely get...

    Jim, I've saved a small fortune on exercise equipment I didn't have to buy to satisfy my Dr. All he ever advised me to do was loose weight and take these pills. I figure I lost about 20# a ton working up all that lead. Now my major concern is a...

    My Daughter always called me up from the "GUN" room to meet a potential suitor. Her final choice of 18 years, is a gun nut just like me.

    Don't forget to whisper something to get them to listen intently before using the whistle. Don't most phones and such now have noise limiter circuits that even out volume levels? I used to use an claxton (auguaga for you young folks) horn to...

    With age comes a softer voice and when my wife faces the other direction and softly talks, all I hear is muffeled murmer. Why does she always face me and speak loudly while calling me deaf?

    Every couple of months, I gather them up and send them with a PT person to distribute at a rehab center. He says they are very popular among the residents there who are being streached and bent to improve their ailments.

    Look under the front leveling foot on the washer. The mold might be what fixed the washer. After all, you left it on the top for him to use.

    Just because the computers made it possible, is absolutely no reason for the anemic print. I can't read it and not being a comic book, the print is more important than the big HD colorful pictures. While I understand that smaller print saves extra...

    The only time it's more than a nuisance is at night when the normal background noise dies. Then the crickets all join in to make it hard to drift off to sleep. A boring TV program drowns it out, and the boredom puts me to sleep. I was always...

    Much more powerful. Also, more expensive to shoot. And I only know of hi point and aero 10mm carbines. In my opinion, the Ruger is better than both. The 9mm out of a 16Ē barrel is no slouch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
