Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 08:09 PM

Those are NICE! I have one my wife ordered for me waaay back. But mine is the regular S5 with the mossy finish.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 09:09 PM

Like this one but with a green blade, what color handle did you get?

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 09:25 PM

Standard grey. The mossy finish is quite a bit thicker than regular finishes. The mossy is comprised of several different colors.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 09:28 PM

Go to the Knife Specs thread and scroll down to the Scrapper 5CG. That is the mossy blade finish and handle combo I have.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 09:41 PM

The scrapper 5 is probably one of the nicest looking designs the yard has produced

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 10:39 PM

Iím glad they made the mud mutt. The 411s I got have some very obtuse/blunt grinds and they has this pry bar with a suggested place for an edge feel. I sold mine and have zero regrets. I ended up with other knives in that size range that perform much better as knives.
Posted By: FAL'er

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/01/22 11:57 PM

Yeah, I wanna love the 411.
I did reprofile the secondary bevel down to 20 dps and it'll cut.
She's still a little fatty and isn't the slicer i want her to be.
Posted By: FAL'er

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 12:01 AM

A 411 sized and shaped blade with thinner stock (mud mutt) would be legit.

I'm talking about a thickness in between these war dog handle Weiner Slicers. Which are excellent
And the .19, sykco 411.

Mud mutt. .14 or .15

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 12:59 AM

I have the 511, scrapper 6 ( not really a SURVIVAL KNIFE) Nice to have though, Scrapper 5, 411 And The mud mutt. I tend to lean toward the 511. Itís more like the blade shape I grew up with in the mid 60ís into Ď74 when I went into the Air Force. But if I had to grab one without thought it would probably be the S5. The sharper point of the 511 would have me worried in a survival situation. I feel the ďspear pointĒ shape would be more robust.
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 03:33 AM

Iím spoiled my 511 is the military over run so itís full flat grind helps to thin it out but it still needs the shoulder bumped back a little.
Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 04:03 AM

I think mine is as well. Got mine at a REALLY good price! grin

The only ď11Ē series I donít have is the 1111. Kinda heavy so I probably wouldnít carry it so the only reason to have one would be to have the whole set. Mamma needs new shoes, soÖ wink
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 04:22 AM

Haha I have 2 1311 and a 911. If I knew the 1111 was coming Iíd have passed on the 911.
Posted By: Private Klink

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 06:25 AM

I prefer the 911 over the 1111, mainly due to the weight of the blade for their size. The 1311 just feels better to me. wink
Posted By: FAL'er

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 06:35 AM

My 1311 should be here Monday.
Found a used one with sheath that's already got the shoulder bumped back.

It's a brisk -2 this morning. I have sneaking suspicion the wife has a mild case of the vid. So we are skipping church today. I'll catch it online.
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 04:32 PM

My 911 has been my primary user, brush clearing, batoning, fire starting, trail maintenance, heck itís a decent thrower and it takes it and asks for more.

Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/02/22 08:35 PM

I agree with you Tom and Mike. My 911 is my most used larger blade. I reserve the 1311 for brush clearing most of the time. Donít know why I donít use my thin cut Chop House seeings how I really like that blade shape/size.

Will be praying for you Randy! Time for some horse paste wink

The 911 is really nimble in the handle for such a large blade.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/03/22 05:53 AM

Randy, I hope that it's just a mild case for you. wink
Posted By: Private Klink

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/03/22 05:55 AM

I should have mentioned that my favorite 11" blade is the Busse B 11. It is well balanced for such a large blade. Dave Canterbury mentioned what a good knife it is on the Dual Survivor episode "Hippo Island". I keep one in my truck and the General's car. wink
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/03/22 02:57 PM

The basic series are such awesome blades. I wish I had picked up a B8LE and had kept my B10LE set but the set did let me pay cash for my wifeís engagement and wedding band so it was still a good trade

Our new water heater went out early last week. The parts finally came in. You never know how much you miss hot water until you don't have it.

Other than that I drove down to Pocatello and took the runt out for Sushi. Deep-Fried sushi is a thing. The fish is still raw. Not too shabby. Plus I got some shopping done at a wholesale place.

Iíve replaced them with anodized titanium screws and backspacer (gets rid of the lanyard loop). On our digital kitchen scales, it now as modified weighs 2.2oz. It feels a lot better in my hand now and also better balanced than it was. It will be carried ďnext to the skinĒ in various places.

Twoody, I really like the 511 as well. More in line with the ďhuntingĒ knives I grew up with. But in a strictly survival situation I would probably go with my S5 or 411/Mud Mutt. I think I would be afraid of breaking off the sharp tip. Iíd have to take another hard look at it though.

Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/23/22 11:10 AM

Very true. Knives snd outdoor equipment were definitely
Easier to enjoy when I lived on/next to places where I could toss on a day pack and go spend a day or 2 in the woods
Shooting competition and guns were my main draw after that but having a family reduces the time I have for travel and the sharp rise in ammo/reloading costs has diminished the joy in it.

Now I find most of my joy in my wife & 2 children. Just got my little guy his first sleeping bag yesterday lol.

Mountain biking is a nice release and Iím fortunate enough to live 15-25min away from 3 trail networks one my dad started back in the early 90s.

Often when we go somewhere the General will drive while I look at the farms and fields, thinking about how our country was years ago. I love the rural life and feel like this is the way folks should be able to live, and the way our nation once was. At one time the U.S. was 98 percent rural and 2 percent urban ; now the figures are reversed.

Those of you whoíve been around a while have heard me say this before. The police have NO constitutional duty to protect the individual citizen. Here is a video that Tells you why and the reason behind that statement.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 01/24/22 02:11 AM

Yep Gonzalez V Castle Rock cemented that one in the USSC.

That fact is though in a 30-year career I've only been there when violent action was taken against an innocent victim a handful of times. Stuff happens, and a call is made, and travel happens. I have saved more than a few lives after the fact.

The best advice is to avoid going to bad places, doing stupid things, don't hang out with people doing stupid things, and be prepared to self rescue. Occasionally none of that will matter. But 99% of the time those things prevent most people from being a victim.

Heard today that the ATF has a database of ONE BILLION gun transactions. They are going around photographing and then digitizing the form 4473.

Hey they arenít breaking the law.... until they do snd itís to late. Part of why I went ahead and got suppressors. I google guns. I shoot competition, I talk to gun folks, I have a CCW, I buy hunting license. Iím already on their lists so I might as well protect my ears and my familyís ears and enjoy quite pews and the advantages they bring if there is a social problem. I just got the stuff ordered to run my LMT MARS-H rifle with a can.

The plant manager sent a company wide email saying they already have plans in place to keep up with customer demand if we would initiate a work stoppage. Funny thing is itís company policy to lock us out if we vote down the first contract presented to us. They wonít let us work under a contract extension of the old... so they will create the stoppages not us.
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/06/22 12:38 AM

Also nobody union or salary has a clue how they could meet demand without us. The skilled labor shortages and the specialized processes, certifications, and skills we have at our facility means it would be very difficult for a scab labor force to work. Especially with making military and FAA controlled parts
Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/06/22 01:28 AM

The only complaint I have with unions, most of the time, is they price and benefit themselves out of a job. Not saying theyíre bad, but that sometimes the goals are to aggressive. Sometimes smaller goals renegotiated more often would be a better way to ultimately get what you want. Then again Iíve never worked where unions have been.
Posted By: Private Klink

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/06/22 03:47 AM

I have mixed feelings about unions Their goals of better pay, safer working conditions, etc. are admirable. However, I have seen all too often where union workers will deliberately break machinery, cause overflows halting production, harassment or intimidation of non union employees, and other problems. They protect problem causing idiots and help them keep their jobs when in fact they should be fired The violent and destructive acts during strikes are not acceptable to me. Negotiations are the way to handle things, not violence.

So I donít see anyone destroying equipment or scraping parts on purpose nobody is intimidating contractors or salary workers we get align pretty well at the site. The union atmosphere here is very relaxed itís nothing like the unions at The automotive plants or other ones. We absolutely got screwed last contract with pay increase that hasnít kept up with inflation and we ended up have to pay 2x the amount for insurance with less coverage. I think we have honest grounds to strike also considering the treatment of employees during the last 2 years of the pandemic.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/06/22 02:46 PM

Sounds like pretty good reasons, but remember that companies are also affected by the pandemic ; many have flat out folded.

Morning Yard!

I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to lay out my garden this year. Missed out on a garden last year with the move. I'm planning on starting peppers and red onions from seed today They both take way longer than my growing season here.

We are going to need to start buying canning jars and lids as well. They were gone long before the normal time last year and were in short supply a few years before.

I think I'm going to try and plant a couple of fruit trees if I can find a self-pollinating apple tree and maybe an apricot tree that can deal with the cold winters. I'll probably plant a few blackberry and raspberry bushes in a corner of the back lot as well.

We are a long way off from being self-sufficient food-wise but once we get it figured out I think we can put a dent in how much we have to buy for the stuff we use most.

I really want an emerson but Iím having a hard time spending that on a 154cm steel knife. My $80 benchmade is 154cm my $120 Leatherman has a 154cm blade
Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/12/22 12:41 AM

Mike, Emersonís are nice. Not fancy or all that Purdy, but letís you know you got something substantial in your hand. Depending on what youíre looking for (I am making the presumption you want a ďregularĒ blade), I personally like the mini cqc-15 the best. The Ď7 and mini-commander ainít bad either. But make sure if you go the cqc 7 route (full-size or mini) you get one that says conventional V grind. Otherwise one side of the blade will be as flat as a piece of glass. Imagine the letter V tilted about 45 degrees where the one side is straight up and down! Perfectly flat. Not really all that bad but takes a little getting used to. I also like my mini 7. And yes it is the chisel grind.
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/12/22 12:45 AM

I love big 3.5-4in blades so a CQC 8 or seax would be great! The grinds donít scare me. The 57rc 154cm is on the soft side
Posted By: Twoody88

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/12/22 01:12 AM

I had the cqc super 8 and it was a tool. Just that. Nothing fancy no perfect tolerances.. is what it is. A bit pricey for me I ended up letting it go as I prefer my ZTs for folders
Posted By: SkunkHunter

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 02/12/22 05:22 AM

Mike, again, depends what you want it for. The Commander (full size) is one of their best sellers. Me, I tend to go for the miniís. They carry better for me. And again, check out the fill size cqc-15. I REALLY like that blade style.

Things are getting spicy in Canada. Trudeau invoked emergency powers ( martial law) and reportedly just froze the bank accounts of peaceful protestors.

I don't think history is going to be kind to Trudeau.

Hope all our Canadian brothers are doing well.

This is also a reminder of why it never hurts to keep a couple grand tucked away for emergencies.

The lies the media trys to display are just laughable. The way they describe the protests as violent riots and how everyone's white supremacists is sad and pathetic. All the footage shown is of peacefull occupancy with their twisted words over top and selected clips cut and pasted. People saying their afraid.. but cutting before they finish their sentence of afraid of the police and gov action being taken

I broke the wiener dog out for kitchen duty last night. I got it used and it was butter knife sharp got it work able with stones when I got it 9 years go but now I need to reprofile the primary bevel. The work sharp KO edition I have does a decent job but I really donít like the convex edge on smaller knives. I want another sharpener.

The DF is pretty hard to find, how do you like the Work Sharp? I use the mouse pad/sand paper method. I get pretty good results. I wasted too much money on sharpening stones.

Iíve been really happy with it. Practice on a junk knife snd then go to town. The wiener dog is the first knife Iíve struggled to sharpen. I like to use stones as well but the KO Work sharp comes out when I need to sharpen something and donít have time for stones. Iíve found Iíd like to have a more precise V grind option though for some of my 4in and smaller blades.

Heads up.

If you can, I recommend getting some cash on hand and printing out hard copies of your bank records.

It's likely that cyber attacks are going to ramp up even more and there may be splash back that hits us here.

Fuel up your rigs as prices are already going up.

And if you have stuff that you need that has to be shipped get it sooner than later.

Knowing the yard you already have a decent pantry and if you don't you know what to do.

We had snow for a brief time this morning but it all melted. I just came in from being outside with my dogs and now there are some random snowflakes falling. We're supposed to get 2" to 5" of snow in the next couple of days, but later next week it will be in the 70's.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/12/22 03:49 AM

Was on the interstate coming back home from Pattyís hair appointment today, and yes it had been snowing for about an hour and a half. This jacked up pickup passed us and then about 150 feet in front of us he starts to pullback into the right lane. I saw him starting to go a little sideways but thought he would (could) get straightened out. NOPE, he started to slide. I hit the binders and could feel the ABS really start to kick in. Anyway, he came all the way over in front of us and his drivers front corner hit the concrete side (we were on a bridge over a train track and large drainage ditch). That swung him a bit and the whole drivers side slammed up against it and caused the truck to bounce up off the road. That in turn caused him to turn and go completely sideways across our lane of traffic. I quickly glanced out the side mirror and was able to go around him on the left side.

As we (us) weíre going about 55 at the most saved us. If we were going the speed limit 70, (he was that fast at least) we would have T-Boned him and would have gotten rear ended ourselves. We called the Highway Patrol (the guy was shook up but OK) then came on home.

Iíll have to clean the Jeep seats tomorrow. wink

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/16/22 02:42 AM

I hear your pain Mike. Been there, done that. On revolvers (double action) I prefer rubber. Easier for me to hold on to without having to adjust my grip.
Posted By: gun dog

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/16/22 03:18 AM

Iím having a hard time with how little area my support hand has to engage the grip surface compared to my automatics. Iím looking at the Hogue grips, the wood Jerry M, extreme G10, and rubber. Iím leaning with avoiding finger grooves since they donít always line with with getting a good grip.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/16/22 11:47 PM

Iím going to need to change grips to be happy. Also Iím not super happy with where the out the tritium in the front sight if I put the dot in the center of the rear then the top of the front sight is out of the rear notch. And if I the top of the front even with the rear notch half of the tritium is buried in the notch and you canít see it. I might just replace the sight with a fiber front and be done with it. Iíve contemplated sending it back to smith but Iím not sure there is something to fix.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/18/22 03:42 AM

We had ďEgg Roll in a bowlĒ for supper, and itís really good served over steamed rice.

1lb pork sausage (or you can use hamburger)
1 bag (or 6 cups) Cole slaw or shredded cabbage
1Tblsp Minced Garlic
4Tblsp Soy Sauce
1 small or medium (diced) yellow onion
3Tblsp Sesame Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
*Green onions (diced) for garnish if desired

In a large skillet (we used a 5qt Chicken fryer pan) cook the meat making sure it is broken up into small pieces, and add the onions about 2/3 way cooked. You just want to get the onions to start turning opaque. DO NOT Drain off the grease from the meat.

Add the Cole slaw, garlic and soy sauce and cook until the cabbage starts softening some (I put the lid on to help ďsteamĒ the cabbage).

Remove from the heat and drizzle with the sesame oil and garnish with the green onions if you want.

Oh and I wore a green camo shirt while Patty wore a light weight green sweater. grin

Evening Yard,

It was a beautiful day here. We had to skip a day trip because they delivered a new stove today. It's nice to have an oven again. The last stove was newer but kept breaking the same thing every 5 months.

So we stuck around the house repotted seedlings and planted some raspberry and black berry bushes. Then we went on a nice walk by the river and some ponds.

Morning!

Well late morning anyway. It's nice and sunny and temp will be decent for spring. I'm debating the finer points of going to a nursery to buy an apple tree.

I'm being picky about what I want though. I only want one. So it needs to be self pollinating, grow in this cold climate and be a dwarf or semi dwarf variety. By the time most trees produce we will be empty nesters and won't use more than one tree will provide.

I have found several prospects online but for whatever reason they won't ship those specific trees to my state.
Posted By: Private Klink

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 03/31/22 05:04 AM

The plant nurseries are pretty careful as to where they ship their products. They probably figure that apple trees won't grow well in your area. wink

Apples are one of the few things that grow really well here. That and potatoes wink. This state is pretty strict with agricultural stuff. I'm betting its pollen doesn't do well with a cash crop or it uses too much water etc.

It will be replacing my Wade & Butchers woodcraft clone (it was made circa 1936, so even then knifemakers were copying each other's design)
I bought that knife back in 1980 and used it constantly until about 5 or 6 years ago when I semi-retired it after Mike Stewart refurbished it for me.
I will know fully retire it as I couldn't bare to lose it now

As for a patina, I love the natural patina that a well used/cared for carbon blade attains.
At my heart I love traditional steel.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 04/03/22 10:15 PM

My dad was diagnosed with colon cancer a few weeks ago and will be getting his colon removed soon.
This surgery is on hold, he has tumors in his neck and lymph nodes that he is going in on Thursday to have a biopsy done on them.
If he is a candidate for surgery I will be buying him a tablet.
He will be in hospital for 7 to 10 days and mentioned that he wanted me to put mahjong on his phone, I figure it will be easier for him to play it on a tablet.

False spring is here. It's warm and sunny. If I didn't know better I would start planting the garden. But I'm bet we are due for more snow and hard freezes up through May.

I also ordered the new knife. I have a Scrap Muk but the basic handle and that blade looks like a handy kitchen knife. If not the kid will have a nice skinner.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 04/04/22 03:46 AM

I still have my first ATV and it's at most a 5 minute job. It was probably an hour for each of the newer ATVs with everything you have to take off and clean up in small spaces.

Just replaced the battery in my truck

Posted By: MonkeyBomb

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 04/07/22 06:16 PM

Both of the ATV batteries were about 5 years old. I bought a couple different 2017 midels in 2018. My other ATV is 22 years old. Its a snap to do most anything with. Its car berated and very little electronics on it.

The truck is easier. Its not hard to get to either one. But they need to be replaced at the same time. It gets expensive and I think next time I'm going to go for a bit pricier battery to deal with the cold and heat here.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 04/08/22 12:58 AM

I finished up maintenance on my ATVs. I reset the suspension on one ATV and changed the compression on the suspension on my SXS. I'll see how it does. I nearly maxed it out. I may have to soften it up a bit for the rough stuff.

Iíve had to use it for the last two days as my ďtrickĒ back is acting up almost constantly now. Still bearable but it may finally be starting down the path of surgery, hopefully still a long way off (or as long as I can stand it) or not being able to walk. I think that I still have a good ways to go though before it gets that bad. Iíve only had one bad episode in the last couple days and I can tell itís because I had the cane to lean on before it ďhitĒ. But life goes on, and itís a nice stick. Has about a 2 and a half inch oblong knob, about 1.5 inches an inch below the knob and 7/8 inch at the bottom.

You can call me Gimpy
but just donít call me Wimpy. grin

We got a little more snow last night than I planned on. Of course I planned on zero snow, but we got about 4 or 5 inches of snow. We really need the moisture.

Yep Skunk, that's the back yard. It was starting to green up but I'll get a reprieve from mowing for a little bit. It depends on how much snow we get by Wednesday.

I still have a bit of work to put in on the raised beds and trying to get a head start on dandelions.

We have gotten more than 8 inches of snow on the ground and probably closer to a foot since Sunday. Most of it is gone already. The front yard is starting to green up and the back yard is probably 60% clear of snow.

I'm very glad our snow pack is getting a boost. We will have a drought this summer but it will be a little better. Unless we have a really wet spring it's going to be a bad year for crops in the west.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 04/14/22 05:51 PM

The General started some plants with some older and some newer seeds and they are doing well. Looks like we will have tomatoes and peppers along with some herbs. Once the frost danger is over we will start working in the main garden. I have a row of wire cattle panels bent over to form a tunnel, and on the outside we plant pole beans and we are going to try a climbing tomato on the ends. This makes it easier to pick beans and hopefully tomatoes as they climb up the panels, hanging almost like bunches of grapes. The General makes a great green bean soup, using tomato juice from tomatoes she works down to make a thicker and tastier spaghetti sauce. smile

I tried something new today. (Very few if any crimes involved ) I have never driven on actual dunes. So I went big and went to St Anthony dunes with some friends. I have to say it was a blast. Especially for someone who had no clue as to what I was doing except smash the throttle, turn the steering wheel and slide once you get to the top.
Those are some huge dunes. You can see the Tetons in the background of one of the pics. I didn't get any pics driving in the big dunes. My copilot claimed she was holding on for dear life and screaming to much to get the sweet action shots. 😉

LOL, I wish it was that simple. It's not horrible but the solenoid has 4 wires. I have to hook into a power and ground which has a very convient post under the dash, but I also have to hook into a busbar for an ignition on wire and run a momentary switch plus a wireless remote.

Not horrible but wiring is no fun. It's going to take YouTube and more than likely some profanity to get the job done.

Most of the time my back is an ache I can deal with. But when it decides to let goÖ. And yeah I have gone down a couple times. But most of the time IF I can grab ahold of something and hust stay bent over and non moving it will pass in about 5 or 10 seconds.

It should work. My mower tires are the same low pressure turf tires. Slime just seals minor punctures. My local ranch supply had about 5 different sizes of it depending on what you were putting it in.

We checked out 2 old trappers cabins first one was a really old one on a lake with an active log book with visitors dating back to the early 70s. The second one was much lower down the mountain and now along a desolate hydro highline route. Looked like only some local rock climbers and the odd hydro worker have been around there. There was Fatwood bushy left for the next fire still sitting in its place 7 years later since his last visit . Cool little damned off pond out front gave a nice touch

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 05/04/22 12:24 AM

The TNT is just a bit too small for my hands. I'm pretty sure I would lose my grip on it if it were wet. I would have to wrap it if I were going to use it.

That's why I passed on the last offering.. With a wider blade and that handle I just don't think I could keep it from turning in my hand on impact.

Throw a regulator handle on it and that could be a beast.

Morning Dogs!

My card got dinged for the 422 this morning and I got an order status change email. It shouldn't be too long.

Otherwise I'm waiting for the fog to lift and sun to come out so I can spray for weeds. If I don't do something drastic the front lawn will be only dandelions. The prior owners didn't do any weed abatement in the spring and by the time I got settled in it was too late. I tried in the fall but it was too little to late.

The back lot got hit with some granules last week but I don't think it was enough. I'm going to have to wait a bit and hit it with some spray.

We are at 162% of our annual snow pack for my area. Not so much because we got a lot of snow but we got some snow and it's been cool enough in the mountains above us to not melt as much.

If we get enough rain the drought may not be as bad as we thought this summer.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 05/10/22 01:52 PM

Thanks folks! I remember my parents' 25th anniversary. Their friends threw them a surprise party. 30-40 people celebrating their marriage, tons of good food (the friends who threw the party were from Taiwan and the wife really knows how to cook!).

Our 25th? Lisa took our 2nd oldest out to get a suit. I got home at 6:45 and had to scrub out the grill after a long, wet winter. Lisa got home at 8. I grilled steak while she did laundry and made a salad. Two kids were asleep by the time food was on the table and we could only wake one
We ate at 9:30 and had leftover cake my oldest made for Mother's Day (chocolate cake drowned in caramel sauce and sweetened condensed milk, and covered in chill whip and crashed candy bars; i had a very very small piece since it was basically s block of sugar and oil. Lisa and I filled the dishwasher and went to bed. OK, she went to sleep and I slipped into a diabetic coma..

Gotta admit. Not exactly an evening of romance, a fantastic celebration of our marriage, or a night to remember.

She asked that I not get her anything since we now have two kids in college and she's not into gifts... I'm too tired these days to argue. I had planned to order the Dirty Trick as a present to myself (my wife is not big into giving gifts either) after I figured out 3-4 guns I could sell to pay for it AND plan something nice to do for Lisa AND give her a pile of cash to help alleviate her stress over college. By the time I saw the last call they were gone frown Gotta read emails more often. I couldn't have missed it by more than an hour

I guess that will be not money towards tuition smile Somehow, I don't my wife will complain wink

Y'all have a good one!

I had a busy day. It was sunny and 78.

The girl child had a few friends over so I grilled them some lunch. Then I assembled a couple more raised planters and shovel/mixed in 30 square feet of dirt into each one.

I need to pick up another 30 feet of soil to fill 20 gallon grow bags. Zucchini, yellow squash, winter squash and a couple watermelons for those. Plus a bunch of 5 gallon buckets for taters.

I should be set.

Weíve talked about some 5 gal buckets for maters but Patty isnít actually supposed to have them. Matter of fact, there isnít really many to many foods she can have (that she will eat). Weíre real hopeful that when she sees her Gastro Dr next week he can tell her there are more than 5 or 6 different types of food she can eat.

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 05/26/22 04:15 PM

I just planted some pole beans, lettuce, cucumbers and micro greens last night. I put in long italian beans that get 12" pods and some that look kinda like 12" star fruit. I still need to get the collards, peppers, eggplant, and red and green asparagus beans in. I got some free bok Choi seeds. Not me favorite, but Lisa likes it.

I need to get a bunch more asparagus to grow. I've got a small patch accidentally growing-- i planted it years ago and thought it was all dead until a couple years ago it started coming in in two small patches.
Anyone know anything about it? How often to cut? When to cut? When NOT to cut? How to make it grow more.

I'm thinking of putting in more roots. Too late? Wait till fall? I want to fill that plot with food that keeps coming back and I don't need to worry.

I've got rhubarb growing nicely after about 5-7years trying. I have enough to cut and next year plan to cut the root. I've got two small blueberry bushes that keep losing their berries to birds. I finally put netting over it. That should solve that.

A friend is going to give me a fig trimming to start a tree. I want trees and shrines that feed me, not always the other way around wink

Best watermelon Iíve ever had was when we used to visit my grandparents in Alabama. For 4th of July the local (and only) supermarket would donate truckloads of watermelons. One year I was eating down to the white part, like a good New Englander, and a local guy asked me why I was eating that junk. He said to just eat the heart and get another piece. To me, the junk part was better than the watermelon we got in New England.

My first turkey was when I moved down here 30 years ago, and the first wild turkey I ever ate. When talking with my neighbor from down the road, he was surprised that wild turkeys tasted good. I was surprised that he shot turkeys mainly for their beards and feathers and didn't eat them.. I feel like it is a waste to not eat the turkey.

It takes some getting used to. Tree line is around 4,800 feet instead of 12,000 feet. So It's kinda barren a what I think of as low altitude. It's been a while since I have lived in the Ozarks but I don't recall being anywhere high enough to be at tree line.

Evening dogs!

I spent the day pulling the interior out of my SXS so I could put 4 point harnesses in. Unfortunately they didn't come with hardware. I spent way longer than I should have going to every hardware store in my little town trying to find 8 of the right grade 8 bolts and locking nuts to finish the install.

I got one in and I'll finish up tomorrow and add an emergency brake since most everything is out of the cab already.

Had Patty to the ER twice yesterday with her chronic Gastro problem. Long story short, they werenít much help. We got home the second time about 0800 Saturday morning. All told we spent about 15 hours in the ER yesterday. She is doing some better now (just woke up for a few minutes) after sleeping most of the day. Itís good for her, gives her stomach (dry heaves etc) time to calm down some. Still hasnít eaten anything since Thursday night. Every time she tries ANY kind of food, up it comes. At least itís not constant like last time.

Tom, I had major surgery a few years ago and they had a very difficult time waking me up also. The last time I had surgery, I mentioned that and the Doctor said they were aware of that. Everything went well with no problems. They must have done something differently.

Patty had difficulty waking up once and the next time they used a different drug and there was no problems getting her to wake up. They will probably do the same with you.

Morning!

That's a good way to celebrate.

I finished up my first week of the new part time job. It's the easiest job I have ever done. But they may have misled me on the hours per week. I was told 20 to 25. But did 35 in the last 3 days. Not a big deal though. Its easy money.

Morning Yard!

I'm trying to get ready to take the wife to Salt Lake city for shoulder surgery. Not a replacement this time but triple the recovery time.

Way too much cooking and laundry for my tastes. At least the runt is home for a few more weeks before school starts

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 08/04/22 08:07 PM

I posted this bottom section over in the Outdoors and fieldcraft section. For those of you who maybe donít visit that side Iím posting it over here as well. It was in response to a post In referencing the review on my new Emerson Thunderstorm finished Mini cqc-15.


Iíve noticed a couple things different than on my stone finished mini-15. Indeed on all my other Emersons.
1. The Thunderstorm finish of course. Almost like a black cerakote that has been stone finished! But itís not. I do really like it though.
2. Iím guessing the bushings are still some form of ďplasticĒ but instead of the normal white theyíre black and seem to be slicker than the white ones. They just ďfeelĒ better.
3. Each liner has a detent ball in it, so the blade seems really secure yet it still opens fairly easy (seems no harder than my other Emersonís).
4. The detent holes in the blade is a hole drilled completely through the blade from one side to the other.
5. The handles although still quite ďgrippyĒ donít seem quite as aggressive as my last few blades. I like this.
6. The handles, what with their ďhookĒ at both the front and back fit my hand perfectly. When I tightly grasp the handles in a Saber grip with my thumb on the ramp my hand is locked in so tightly you couldnít fit a piece of paper between my fingers. Again! I like it.

================================================================================================

All joking aside, I really do like the mini-15. I wear a kinda tight medium glove (got kinda fat fingers) and it does ďfit me like a gloveĒ.

I carry a mini bug out for a Sheeple blade in my left front pocket. My Social Breakdown was my Micro Commander for itís size, but have always preferred the mini-15. Before the MC I carried my black bladed mini-15, but gave that to a friend that needed a good reliable tough folder. Turns out itís one of if not his favorite ďoh crapĒ blade. Makes me proud of the young feller.

Anywho, to me the 3.5 inch blade isnít to long for an edc pocket blade. I can and have carried my full-size 15 but it is a bit longer than what I like. I like enough room to carry something else besides the knife in my pocket although I usually donít. Now if I was going into a questionable area where I couldnít carry a gun and would be there for quite some time, I would and have carried my full size 15. Iím talking of course about ďshoot meĒ zones. I may need to get a TS finished full size 15 when/if they come out with one.

Yíall know how I like my Karambits. Well I feel as if the CQC-15 line is a better ďnoviceĒ blade (yes I do mean me). Is the Kíbit a scarier looking blade, yeah I think so. If just the looks would stop an altercation, great. But for overall function, a less specialized skill set, I think the Ď15 is better. At least for me. I am not a pro by any means, just a grumpy old man that believes in at least having the ability to protect myself, my family and those unable to protect themselves from the increasing ďunsociableĒ individuals that are being allowed to roam our streets.

I will ALWAYS have at least one of the following on me when away from the house, IF ABLE, all three.

1. Handgun (right now H&K VP9
2. A knife ( 2 actually, One never seen, for antisocial occurrences, and one ďSheepleĒ for all those weird woke folk).
3. My Blackthorn stick usually, or if I feel the need to ďupscaleĒ, my Cane Masters EDCCP (Every Day Carry Cane Plus)

Happy hunting Ray grin wink

FREEBE ALERT

Under the Americans with Disabilities act of 1990, a cane is:

Approved on ALL forms of Public transport, buildings, spaces and work places.
If anyone Questions you, refer them to the ADA Hotline at 800-514-0301

Under the HIPPA privacy rule of 2003, ďtheyĒ are not permitted to ask about your health, Infirmity, or reason for carrying a cane.
If anyone questions you, refer them to the Office of Civil Rights Hotline at 800-368-1019.

The TSA has approved walking canes for use during flights as part of carry-on luggage.
If anyone questions you, refer them to the TSA Hotline at 866-289-9673.

As far as I know all the above info is still active and correct

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 08/15/22 03:15 PM

Morning Yard!

I'm waiting on the Roma tomatoes to ripen and try my hand at spaghetti sauce. I have a bunch on the vine

My green pepper plants have a bunch and my jalapeno plants had some many peppers it was dragging them over from the weight. I picked about a third yesterday.

The cucumbers are doing okay and winter squash is doing well but they don't produce much per plant. If I get 5 off the 2 plants I'll be doing good.

I have 1 grapefruit sized watermelon and a couple that just formed but I doubt the will ripen. I only have another 30 days left for the growing season. Maybe 45 if September stays warm.

I think I'll double the sized of the raised bed garden next year.

I use something similar. They are like a stock tank without a bottom. About 3 feet wide and 6 feet long. I use 20 gallon grow bags and plenty of 5 gallon buckets. They do surprisingly well and you can get several seasons out of the grow bags.

I'm going to try and get 3 more of the bottomless tanks in the spring. They make weeding and watering way easier.

They probably got hit by an eruption of swamp gas.

Todd, I received my two knives today. Nice but a little handle heavy ; Res-C handles would fix that. wink

Exciting news over in the swamp hey guys

Re: The Daily Growl & Bark - 08/28/22 11:55 PM

Yes, the Swamp has a new Honcho ................................... Voodoo. I hope they let him be more informative and participate on the forum. It should be interesting to see if he is able to make a grand entrance with a new knife or two. wink

I love the Swamp, but I just can't learn to love blade forums. I've been there a long time. But it's kinda like trying to find good Southern BBQ in New York City. It's not quiet right, a bit off and you feel kinda dirty being there wink

Yup, it just doesnít have the same feel as the Yard.
