      My #1 out of the 5 was the Rumble IPA by Great Divide Brewing, followed by the Firestone Brewing Union Jack.

      Deep fried double cheesebuger. Made a day trip up to Caseville for the last day of Cheeseburger Festival.





      They call these butterfly chips, but really just shaved potato deep fried, with bacon, sour cream, and cheddar cheese.

      I've been "picking" my entire life almost. I never called it that before the television show. On occasion you just have one of those days.

      I bought a box full of vintage models. These were all done in the early 60's. Just a few random examples.





      Also, a complete Clash of the Titans set from 80-81. I'm keeping the models. The Kraken and all is already listed for sale.

      Bit of a spending spree...some things I needed, others...not so much:

      New backpack for the 5th grader:


      New wallet for me:


      New sunglasses (hopped on the OT bandwagon and picked up the AO Original Pilots):


      New WiFi-enabled BluRay player:


      I love this thing - Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Crackle... so cool. I watched episodes of All in The Family and Barney Miller...I miss really good sitcoms!

      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      I'm embarrassed to admit i picked up a pair of new wayfarers a few months ago. As for the most recent purchase:

      I've carried a Glock 19 since 2008. Slowly trying to transition from the 19 to the 27. The shooting in Colorado made me ask myself what 9mm would do to someone wearing full armor like that freak was; I switched to 40 for that reason. 10 shots of 40 (even with armor) will definitely leave someone hurting.

      Buddy of mine is a Tarrant County (Fort Worth, TX and surrounding area) Sheriff's Deputy. He shot a guy in the head with a 9mm and it didn't kill him. He moved up to a .40 so it would work better next time.

      Story?

      Fred (the deputy) was working part time security at a bank somewhere in Fort Worth. The bank was robbed and Fred pursued. Outside one of the guys (where was two) got behind Fred and slit his throat with a knife. Fred turned his gun around and fired a shot over his own shoulder into the mans face.

      Fred is OK. Just has a serious scar on his neck/chin area. Happened a couple months back.

      I bought mine in 1993 from a tub full of them at a gun show. Mine are real AF spec with parkerized frames and a blue vinyl case with the usual mil-spec info on it. I am OG. I paid $10.

      He is a law enforcement officer who was working security at the bank when it was robbed. Of course he is going to go after them.
