    Involved in a wreck today

    Most people have no idea, how long it takes for a loaded Big Rig to slow down or stop. I can watch those videos all day long, where people think brake checking a Rig is a good idea. :lol:

    We supposedly have Vets who make house calls.... But the last 3 have flaked on us.... One was to put our ailing 19 year old pup down, after calling local Vets resulted in a 3-4 week wait.... For euthanasia!!! The first Vet we called, was the one our pup had been going to for 14 fricking...

    Whatever happened to bug zappers?

    That was always my experience, I threw mine away after 6 months or... It fried them well enough, just not all of them, and attracted more than I started with. I love my Bug-Asalt...

    Bit my tongue in my sleep

    Just about a year ago, I had a dream that I was an action hero in a movie, at some point, I was running after the bad guy, in one of those running rooftop chases. Woke up in massive pain, with swollen knees and elbows, I literally stood up in my bed, and jumped off it, like I was attempting to...

    Anyone here well versed in Colt 1911?

    I've had a few 45's but never owned a Colt 1911. I have nothing to add to the thread... except noting how fricking incredible it is, that a design conceived well over 100 years ago, is still basically industry standard for every pistol being designed to this day. Whenever I marvel at the...

    Are Your Pedals Collecting Dust, Or Leading You To New Ideas?

    I haven't bought a pedal since I bought my Kemper... About 3-4 years ago. That was.... Until yesterday. My wife has been working from home a lot lately, and my Kemper rig is too much to move around the house the way I have it cabled. So I've resorted to playing in my garage with the blues jr...

    Home and vehicle to grid.

    I have enough Solar on my home, that I haven't paid a power bill, in years. Would love to have a battery backup system, but the cost, vs their lifespan, hasn't come close to making sense yet.

    Being right…. Has never felt this wrong!

    Not even close, a typical year for him His P&L usually reads something like this: Taxable wins: 1.3M Losses: 1.5m or more, Between the 2 of their incomes, I don't think they clear 200k a year.

    Bands not playing loud enough.

    I saw Bon Jovi 30+ years ago, before anyone knew who they were (opening for the Skorpions) The sound guy did them so dirty.... All you could hear was bass and drums, after they got pelted with beer bottles for 20 minutes, they bailed out.... I remember thinking "Probably never hear from those...

    Met a handful of Country stars, semi famous session players etc.... The one huge star I met, was Jim Neighbors... Coming out of an elevator in Reno 30+ years ago. Only thing I could muster... was.. GOLLLEEE! He shook my hand, and I scampered off, completely embarrassed. I'll never forget...

    Maybe it was a miracle that this little girl wasn't hit on her scooter in a San Mateo, CA crosswalk?

    This is why I drove my kid to school everyday... And threw the bikes in the truck... to go out in the boonies riding when my kid was younger. Everyone thought drunks on the road were bad (and they were/are) but at least most drunks are TRYING. When I see these idiots swerving all over, looking...

    People trying to sell used Firefly 338's for $100 over retail for a new one

    I bought this one off FB marketplace for $175 It was brand new, still in the box with plastic on it. It's probably the best "ready to play" cheap guitar, I've ever bought. If I had the patience to change the pickups and pots, I'd play it a hell of a lot more.
