    Bought the ranch three days ago skiing in Mammoth. Good Lord. I have a bruise the size of a salad plate on my hip and saw stars when I hit the ground. I'm worried I killed off two of the last three brain cells I have left! I partially dislocated my shoulder too. WTF? Got xrays and checked out ok. My range of motion is so limited I tried putting on deodorant and could only get as far as my left nipple. I think my nipple smells good but my left armpit stinks.

    Must be getting old. I ski hard and fast and haven't fallen in years. I lost a ski pole. Hopefully that doesn't show up in my next colonoscopy!:eek:o_O:rolleyes:

    Be careful folks...it's a jungle out there:D

    Recently? I guess I need a definition of "recent." In the past year or the past month?

    The past month, I have a routine. Nothing new. In other words I am BORING!

    In the past year? I got baptized in the river. As they say, better late than never.

    Well, I'll go with the past couple of years (allow me to call that recent in my many years).

    Went to a wedding ( I was doing the driving) and did not have one single alcoholic drink.
    Became a grand dad.
    Went thru Christmas without any parents.
    Did not watch one single pitch of the World Series.

    Diet not exercise is the key to weight loss.

    Broke my freaking ankle in two places!:mad:

    Not medical, recently refinished a WWII Russian Mosin-Nagant rifle.

    7.62x54R caliber little bigger than a 30.06:eek:

    Super accurate, and with the refinished wood, it looks great!

    Do you do your own ammo or is it easily available for the 7.62x54R?

    Well, I can't boast about that. Already have done them 5 times. Fun, not. The last one was October 2017. Got an excellent report! Doctor says all was OK and I don't have to have another one until 5 years later! I was very happy about that.! Then I couldn't help but think what my age would be then, if I make it. :)

    Heading to Barbados for first time ever. Quick visit, 3 nights. Staying in a $1000 a night suite using some free night certificates. Most expensive hotel room I have ever stayed in. Not something I would pay for but seemed like a good place to burn some free night certificates that were about to expire. Looking forward to some Fairmont pampering

    That 7.62x54R is surprisingly plentiful, and also available in soft point for deer, elk, bear, etc..

    Ray, I don't know....

    I don't shoot off firecrackers either going in for one, nor after the results!:eek:

    Usually I just go get a habanero and black bean burrito and a Dos Equis:)

    Two things

    Attended the CWS in Omaha and watched the Gators win it all. Great event and I will be back.

    Attended demo day and the trade show at the PGA Show in Orlando. If you are a golf nerd it is Christmas and then some.

    It was a couple months ago, but in January I went to a rodeo down in Homestead. To be honest, it was a little underwhelming. I was confused about what was going on a lot of the time, and nobody I was with had been to a rodeo before either, so they were no help.

    But hey, at least now I can truthfully use the expression, "This ain't my first rodeo!"

    Ohhh, I just thought of another one! And this one's much more recent.

    I'm pretty sure that last night was my first time watching anything on the "TruTV" network. ;)
