    ah well now I feel like an idiot LMFAO!

    I love picking bluegrass as much as I love prepping. My favorite three long guns are a DPMS AR-15, a Martin D-28, and a Stelling Bellflower.

    I've been teaching that Engine of Screeching Death for over 40 years. Had you ever thought of getting a left-handed model? I know you can't just turn it upside down like a guitar, but they are available, LOL!

    Cool! Another bluegrasser! Never let it die!
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    I play with a concertina every now and then, but it's hard to get in any practice. For one thing, it makes the dog howl like he's being beaten! I also play board games, monopoly, shogi, chess and occasionally dominoes. I like to cook. Right now I'm trying to make the perfect pizza sauce, drop biscuits and noodles. The first time I ever cooked for people was when I got invited to a friends barbecue, but for whatever stupid reason, there were no barbecue sauces or rubs! So, we had a contest to see who could come up with the best sauce with whatever the heck you could find in their kitchen. I don't remember who won, but one of the things that stuck in my head was when one of the judges said to me "This sauce is pretty good. It's like you put some sort of addictive substance in it." To which, I replied "I did." I got the stink eye, but then I explained that I used cooking sherry.

    My for sure hobbies are hunt and fish. My others are kinda sporadic, by need, seasonal and so on but include leather work (mainly gun/shooting and knife but also saddle and tack), woodworking, dobro guitar, have made a few knives, putting together a parts list to give muzzle loader building a try.

    relearning the art of sewing. I have not used a sewing machine since 1986 after an accident nearly caused me my right arm. Now 30 years later, my boyfriend bought me a sewing machine for Christmas since I had been wanting one to be able to make clothes and also quilt. The stipulation of getting the sewing machine, was I had to make him some seat covers for his 1964 Ford Galaxy, done and done. Doesn't look half bad. Have also made an apron for one granddaughter, and have another cut out, just need to get it sewn together.
    I have also been getting ready to go back to school for my Bachelors degree, Considered going for a nursing degree.But I know that I can not stand enough, or meet the lifting criteria for nursing, but there are other jobs that I could do if I had the degree that would allow me to work from home. But the knowledge would be worth it, and the work from home jobs pay way better. Decisions decisions.

    I've taken up guitar, if not really made any progress owing to a congenital condition I have. Stupid-fingers I think it's called. Still play around with electrons and photons as much as possible.

    Would it sound crazy if I took up swapping tales with other Veterans on the internet forums, now that I've reached an advanced age?

Be real, life got so much so better when I hot bunked with a "Bubble head" that I don't want to share those experiences. So did you want to share how many six or eight legged creatures you decided to "KILL".

    Want to admit that you sent folks like me out of the tubes to brace the two legged creatures that gave you nightmares? Just be real! Put Badass behind you. JMHO.
    You really need to get a life. Seriously! Please seek help at the local VA.

    I don't think running the spreader across the yard, killing 6 and 8 legged critters, requires help at the local VA. But I'll ask them the next time I'm there. Just remember to rotate with a different pesticide each time you do the yard. If you use the same one over and over it's not as effective.

    A couple of years ago we got two pups. Litter mates. They are so funny. Always happy. They sure like to go for car rides. We take them to Dairy Queen for pup cups or Arby's for sliders.

    Has the VA developed a cure for being an a$$hat?

    I doubt they will do anything about a non-service related pre-existing condition.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    You can downplay it as much as you want. YOU take a joke I made eight years ago and turn it into denigrating my military service because it was different than yours. Your continual theme of you being an elite "frogman" and the rest of us mere mortals just serve at your pleasure has grown tiresome. You told me not too long ago that you were leaving this forum because it was not for you. I do believe you may have been right in that assessment.

    I think your profile pic should have been a slug.

    Had I realized that my poor attempt to poke fun at the "Kill Things" would be taken in such a bad light, I wouldn't have posted it. It seems readily apparent to me , that "Killing Things" isn't a hobby unless it's dealing with insects in the yard. I'm sorry that I rubbed folks the wrong way, so I have removed my upsetting comment.
