Me too. So what kind of bike did you get quazz? I can't tell what it is with those skanks and the blurry car in the way.

I've missed reading yours.

Just paying the bills and keeping the wife happy. That's plenty challenging for any one man.

This makes it very easy to shape shots and I know when I got a high fade just right, a low draw spot on, etc. They set up like a traditional blade and are very easy to be comfortable over. They are consistent with a slightly larger sweet spot than you would find on an "old school" blade. It's all dependent on the shaft and the kick point , but I find the longer irons have a nice trajectory, allowing for the ball to sit much softer from the mid-high angle of attack.

Lastly, they're just plain pretty. I'm not much on aesthetics when it comes to golf; functional = good in my book. However, these clubs give me both. The slender cut muscle back give them a better look than a skinny blade, but I still get that same level of response from a pured ball as well as one that I miss.

Thank you

Cool looking Book!
Photography was expensive and time consuming in it's early days.
Not much of it was "wasted" on Native Americans!
My Mother can trace her ancestry back to a man born in sweden in 1589 who married and had all his children in America. My Father's family were among the first to settle in Central Pennsylvania in the mid 1700's. I always wonder how much interaction there was with the "Natives" back then?

I bet the interaction involved some fighting, Don !
Edward Curtis was also a genius in the darkroom, and developed and processed all of his photos...... around 40,000 of them were dedicated to the native Americans, and most are cataloged at the Library of Congress.

I have an electric smoker and it works really well. I still mostly use my side-box drum smoker, though..

I am completely new to this. When/why would you choose one over the other?

I use the electric for mild flavors - i.e. poultry with alder or apple chips. I've made ribs and brisket in it, but usually they're too big to fit in there so I use the side-box - more manly anyway!

I love the sound of those old Mercury outboards. They gurgle like nothing else, and have the coolest kind of hollow burbling tone. We used to have the REALLY old white one in I think a 40hp on the boat I grew up with.

That looks to be about the same size... Maybe 50hp?

It's a 650 (65 hp). I think it works! I'm hoping this welded aluminum boat will look like a million bucks when I'm done, inside and out. I am still trying to identify it. Looks like a late 60s Crestliner Sea Scout.

Air shock gauge/bleeder/air compressor controller for the Jeep. Ruined my air shocks unknowingly running them at 0 psi last winter. Now I can see where they're at from the drivers seat and I don't have to get out the bicycle pump to fill them up anymore

My most recent purchase... well, I suppose I don't actually "buy" it for 30 years, but I pay for it until then. It's a school house built in 1900 and converted just after WWII into a house. It's small- 600 sq. ft., but it's got a "garage" or what I call an attached shed through the right side door. You can't park a car in there but you could at one point and it's paved inside there. Acre of land on a dead end road with only one house past me, big farm across the street, very private lot, trail access for snowmobile season, big lake about 1500 yards down the street.



Those are hand cut granite curbs on the sides of the driveway. Pretty cool.
