Buenos días and howdy! Hope you like rain on the west side of the Cascades or freezing-ass cold on the east! Are you in the metro area or someplace else?

Re: Nosy Shopper turns armed assailant

Yeah, this was super weird. I live about a mile from the incident location, and was surprised especially because the offender was a valid CCW holder.

Strange.

OT: Try and beat him senseless as quickly as possible.

Ribs are all finished, and I received the gas springs from the nice man in the big brown truck yesterday. I'm going to be surprised if these suckers don't do the job, but if they don't I can go up to 250 with the dimensions I need. The ribs are much lighter than the original ones, so maybe the weigh...
