Good morning all you happy campers, whether snowbound or sunbound. We have very lucky here weather-wise. Cold, but no white stuff.
The ladies are settling in. Margie is in a "happy" place and Jo has finally come to the understanding that she cannot do everything for her mother. She had been with her from 7a-7p. Can't keep it up and she is ok with that now. Next week we will deal with the legal stuff and what is gonna be, is gonna be.
Yesterday I made pea soup and marinara sauce. It supplements Margie's meals, even though she eats plenty without it. The place she is at has been more than we expected. VERY accommodating and can't do enough for her.

Good mornin' troops ,we got about 15" of snow here in Kansas City yesterday,but Harley didn't send us home til it was coming down at 2.5-3" an hour . A thirty minute drive turned into a two and a half hour slog.

Dennis, the doctor did supply the cup but he told me to come with my wife-not good. The tests he sent me for show a mass on my right kidney, a mass on my bladder and a POUCH on my prostrate. A pouch, I must be a kangaroo! C/T scan with contrast tommorrow. What a good time I'm having for the last 7 years.

How to start a fight.

 

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my
lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked the
boat up to the van and proceeded to back out into a torrential
downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the
garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather
would be bad all day.


I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back
into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different
anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is
terrible."


My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my
stupid husband is out fishing in that?"


And that's how the fight started...

THAT'S WHY I WANNA A SLIM, SHORT BARRELLED .45 VERSION IN MY LEG HOLSTER. IT IS THE SIZE A THE BORE GITS 'EM. BUT NOW i GOTS MY GOALS SET ON A RAGING JUDGE  .454 CASULL, .45 COLT .410 3" MAGNUM.

i KIN AFFORD IT WITHOUT GOIN KOMPLETELY BROKE, SOZE IMMA THANKIN GOIN DOWN THERE AN PURCHASING THAT SAINLESS RAGING JUDGE I SEEN YESTERDAY - OTHERWISE i KIN PUT IT OFF FOR 2 - 3 MONTHS - THEY G OTS A FREE 90 DAY - THAT'LL GIMME 3 MOS TO FIND ME AN OUTSIDE THE JACKET LEFT HANDED SHOULDER HOLSTER FOR THE M&N'NEFFER SOS I KIN CARRY I T OUTTA DA STORE. i MEEEN THE MORE i THINK ABOUT IT

 ONLY THANG OUT DERE CLOSE IS THE S&W GOVERNOR - 2X COST

DATS A BAAAD BOY! GONNA GITS ME ONE, 

THE JUDGE AND CIRCUIT JUDGE ARE JIST FUR BALANCE;

The .454 Casull round won't be fired much, due to the  wide variety of protection .45 colt and .410 pistol ammo available developed specifically for the judge. Smith jumped on the bandwagon cause they seen the popularity landslide for Taurus / Rossi. But they're at the top of the range an the South American manufacturer is taking the majority of the market not willing to pay premium price point for the same BOOM-BOOM!

MAN YA SEE THAT RAGING JUDGE LIGHTIN' UP A DIME SIZE CIRCLE ON YOUR CHEST [FORHEAD] YOUR FEET BETTER BE PICKIN'EM UP AND LAYIN'EM DOWN!
