Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

Don't get me wrong, it is not like I have not done some incredibly stupid things in my life. We used to hike from Three Rivers, NM up to Ruidoso, NM at least once a summer. You quickly learn what you need to haul along and what needs to be left behind or at home. If we were to do that with our kids ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

My money is on her winning, since she seems to have kicked his rear end at the pre wedding dinner/drunken brawl. As well as being active duty Army and and avid hunter. He barely seems to know which end of the firearm is the more dangerous end and seems to lack basic life skills or at least skills I ...

Re: Stuff I Carry on Family Vacation

Went to a wedding last week and sure enough Lil's bag made it through as well as everyone else's check in luggage. Mine as usual was searched.

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Well not really knowing what to do (see previous lack of OPORD), I returned to my previous location to talk to Lil. Now I will admit I have been to some family reunions (ok, most of them end up with drunken fights, to include both blunt weapons, edged weapons and on an occasion or two firearms of di...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Oh boy.......I should have avoided that wedding like it was going to be really, really bad. It was.....oh boy was it. First night, Susan and I, Dean and his wife as well as Padilla and his wife all decided to attend. Well it was some white boy (not related to any of us at all), that was trying to ma...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Heading out to a wedding, I have been told in no uncertain terms by every female in my family (the ones that matter anyway), including one of my granddaughters that I will be on my best behavior. I'm always on my best behavior around people I like, so I should be good to go at this wedding and the f...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

A few months ago while we were all having a family dinner. Poppet asked me to go to school with her for Show and Tell. For some odd reason every female at the table screamed NO!!!! It was then determined that Sam would go and I could go to the gun store. I did however go to Juniors school a few time...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

It just never ends....... Lil, Poppet and I went out to the local military post. There was a sale in Optics, ammo and accessories. Well missed it by one day so since I wanted a new EoTech XPS I just told the guy to pull one out. Sale price was $499.00usd with no tax. Regular price was $556.00usd wit...

Along with Poppet saying “Pops, what are you doing?” Me: Waiting In you ladies. Poppet: No with your hands. Me: oh, uhhhh just practicing field stopping an At/M16 ...

Re: My Job, My Hell...

Does the phrase “see this is the reason you cant carry on a normal conversation” count, and that was from the DMV clerk.

Re: Stuff I Carry on Family Vacation

Also if you are near a military post they usually have a yard sale webpage. I often find odds and ends on them, so I usually check to see what is for sale there as well. So if you are near Holloman AFB in New Mexico use the base name and you end up with the link below. http://www.hollomanyardsales.c...

We typically take a few of the grandchildren to work when my wife goes somewhere interesting and they are out of school. You never know what the security goons will allow or will not allow.

Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

I also believe that personal responsibility has something to do with it or the lack of holding people responsible for the decisions they make and the consequences of the decisions they make.

I briefly considered it, then figured she had me fair and square and I can always use the brownie points. Good thing I did since “I evidently caused a scene at the DMV this morning. Dean’s sister called her and she drove down. New Mexico allowed illegals to obtain NM drivers licenses so now U.S. Cit...

Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

Lil's family just blamed it on me.......seems I am a magnet for bad things and it was not really that bad. One minute you see him doing something moronic and the next he was gone.
