Happy Valentine's Day...I guess

A beautiful card - the table upon
So what could possibly be wrong?
A sweet little note
Nearly made me choke
Sent to me by ol DON!

Morinin doc n gang!

I recon most of yaz are spoonin wid the better half 'bout now. (I would be too, 'cept that 4-legged girl in my life needed to go out a woof at the coyotes, and do "other business".)

The bad thing bout livin 300' back off the road is...3-foot drifts stacked up like ridges on a washboard for the full length. Did I mention the Farmall was not running? Oh...This will be interesting!! (I'll get to it...soon as I can push the back door open enough to get outside:eek: )

Y'all have a good un!!

Good Morning All You Sweeties

Paul, that is why I don't miss Ohio. Had a little Ford N and the snow would so bad the tractor would not push it any more snow and had to have the neighbor come with his big John Deer and clean out my 100yd drive way. I always liked the snow made good fox hunting, but hated it when I had to go to work.
Think I'll go to the barn and check the rifle for Saturday's shoot then come home and do some reloading. Shooting in the barn realy helps for working up loads and checking the rifle, but don't help when you shoot out side in the wind.
All have a great day, Art

"If you look real hard, you can see the naked Playboy bunny holding a rifle!" HA!

Golod Morning Doc & GGVG Freinds

And, a goooooooooooooooooood morning it is here in cooler Southern, Ky.
21.7* outside, but, we missed the snow, and I think most of the ice that
is just north of us. Enjoyed a visit with Kenny U. & going to Lodge last
evening. Sound like our "Fine Feathered Friend, AKA Tha Rooster" is frozen
to the roost pole this morning. Or, at least snowed in ! Poor Ami, being
all "cooped up" with "That Old Phardt" .:eek: Talked with Murph yesterday
afternoon and he said that they were getting pounded with the winter snow
storm. Just maybe "Old Doug" has graduated from the "Mary Ann School
of Shooting/Hunting Coyotes after he put the whammy on a triple last week.
Guess his head is still all swolled up !;) I need to do some load development
for the two Swifts, but, guess I am not as dedicated as Doc & Bird Dog, way
too cooooooooooool to suit me for shooting. Reckon I could evulate the
twist rate of each rifle & load up some test rounds and "be ready" for tha
thaw. HOpe each of you has a great day today. Walk with a smile and the
assurance that God loves you & I ! God bless......

junebug's salvage LRP rblp on fire

Yesterday just before dark the wind was dead on birddog range. so far we had only shot the salvage at 200 yd. which is the intended purpose for the gun at the bbb and top gun in factory class. Junebug shot a warm up group at 336 that was great and i told him to go to 400 at check it out. it shot 3-shot group that measured 1 & 1/16 in. Not bad for a factory stock gun. 223, 9 twist, with 75 bergers. His sight in group for 400 measured 1.5 in. Head shots one the 400 yd. ground hog were no problem.
Going to Sparta today with Livingston planned for Friday and Saturday. Art that's a good looking gun. Is that the 6 br?

Mornin' fellas

Oh it's cold here right now. I'm ready to say "Uncle" to old man winter for sure. About 5 or 6 counties around and near us you aren't allowed on the road unless it is an emergency or emergency vehicle. Visibility..... oh maybe a quarter mile, lots of blowing snow. This is what ole buddy Paul sent to MLM and I.

OBTW Paul... didn't anyone ever tell you that Farmalls were cold natured and finicky??? Specially the 300 and 400 series if I remember correctly.

Hope everyone has a good one. WD

Yeah, we're diggin out now. Very beautiful, in its own way!! I guess knowing the end of Feb is in sight and with it winter will be going thru it's death throws makes it OK. I enjoy a good snow or two every winter and then I'm ready for spring to come.

Yeah, this ol Farmall - a "Super M" - pre-dates the 300 (like my grandfather had). It has been pretty good about starting, but now it has a leak in the radiator somewhere, and so it will sit until my landlord or I can afford to fix the SOB:mad: Mebby a dose of some "Stop-Leak" or the like would work well enough to allow me to use it long enough to clear the drive and hold until it can be properly fixed later. Hmmmm...

Oh the memories, Paul....

of going across the road and starting the "H" and pulling the "M" or the Super M in cold weather to get it started. The 400's were just parked in the back of the barn till spring or warm weather.

And I agree with ya on the snow... alright already... bring on the spring. WD

Are you sure AceBall doesn't have the BUNNY that was suppose to be in the picture???:eek:

James, I are in my orafice! Oh!...you mean whar in the world?? That would be Custer Park (mailing address) about 25 miles south of Joliet, IL (as the crow flies) - about 1-3/4 hours (no traffic) from my house to the Chicago "loop" (Downtown).

Here's an optical illusion for ya...Most gals can find the rifle in about 3 seconds. It takes most guys about a minute to find it, but some guys NEVER find the rifle (including me!).



Good luck! :D
