    I like my HiPoint carbine, but the only HiPoint pistol I've seen in a store was a .45, weighed a ton & when I racked the slide, couldn't get it to go back into battery. Felt gritty when I racked it, so maybe just needed cleaning & oil, but I passed. Besides, only pistols I've bought were bought with the idea that I may want to carry them & the HiPoint .45 didn't fit that requirement!:)

    Walked out the door heading to work and saw that pesky light up in the sky.

    Darn thing shows up and then the rain goes away. But, the rain. Always. Comes. Back.

    Don’t trust it. Whatever it is, it’s cruel and mocking. It only shows up for a few minutes and then disappears.

    It’s a harbinger of rain, this strange light.

    Married my late wife in Texarkana, the Texas side. Every now and then we would pass through, and take a photo in fronting the courthouse, holding hands, with me standing in Texas, her standing in Arkansas. The state line runs right through the middle of the courthouse!

  5. upload_2020-5-22_17-20-43.jpeg Surgery went well the doctor said. They did remove the three bones and I have to wear this for five weeks. Block is starting to wear off and the pain is increasing but I do not want to take the narcotic pain meds they gave me. upload_2020-5-22_17-20-43.jpeg

    I called my hip surgeon's office when I found out what he'd prescribed for pain & he called in a different prescription. You might try that.

    Just finished watching "The Last Waltz". Brought back a lot of memories. I think I understand better now why they wound it down....or tried to.

    You look a tad swollen. Yep agree, have a conversation about pain management options if needed. They do exist, but the med community seems, well, lazy about it in my humble opinion.

  11. I wouldn't go beyond half what " they " suggest you take. You'll end up sick as a dog and sicker if you try to stop taking it.

    I'd ask for an anti inflammatory like Moloxicam and paracetamol is highly underrated. Opiods just make you feel stoned and really do little for pain. Not really.

    Try to do stuff, research loads, read books talk to people and stay positive. You'll be surprised what you can put up with.

    Christian and Hedesseh's wedding day today. The weather is looking good so far. I'm sure 2PM will arrive unexpectedly soon.

    More of a Beam guy, but there may be some involved after all of the driving around is done.

    billy, why is the front tire smaller than the rear tire? Better performance off-road?
     
  19. We're out toward the NC mountains doing gigs. How's this for a view from the front window?

    That's the western view of South Mountain. 0523201216.jpg

    Looks like elk could live there; esp the Roosevelt strain.
