The land is ours

I was starting to wonder- with all the delays and property line mistakes- if we would be.
The realtor was starting to send us new property to think about, but they finally got everything signed off and we turned over the cashiers check today at2:30PM.

Now we start fixing "the treehouse" up for temporary lodging while I'm working and building the new manse.

Yeah- I need to remember to hold the phone sideways when videoing....

I don't think so, Skippy

The ones they sell on E-bay didn't have their chains run dry for miles.
...AND they have both adjusting nuts.

BUT- the plastic is still shiny....

Rained out

And it wasn't for you John Cornyn- who sat on your GOP money while the Clinton money man Terry McAuliff won over a Republican Conservative.

Get you bucket and mop ready

so you can get rid of this smug condescension about the "homeless" they have a 'foto-essay' about.

Because we have to be smug and superior when talking about the 'unfortunate', don't we?

Instead of calling them bums that want to live like this, we need to use that $250,000 English pop-culture taglines we learned in some Liberal Arts course in the 'humanities'.

And now for something you really want to see

Via Greg-

We have always curvacious Kate Upton involved in a swimsuit shoot weightless......

But you already clicked, didn't you?

A sample conversation at work today

We're drilling piers for an HEB expansion downtown San Antonio.
The specs call for 22' deep in fill. 18' in broken rock or 3' into any bedrock we find above that.

Me (on my perch on the drill rig)- I hit rock, but it's not very hard."

Terracon QC guy-  "How hard is it?"
Me- "not George Thorogood hard."

Terracon-"More like Michael Bolton?"
Me- "More like the Bangles."

Terracon- "Ok, that'll work, go another three feet."

Henry rifle update

Ok, so I got to sight it in, and at the bosses ranch.

I parked the truck about 40 yards from a good backstop and tried it out.
With stock front sights and a 'bolt-on' Williams receiver peep-site, we were about 4'' low.

Adjusted them higher and were about 4" of the "sighting mark" on the aluminum sheet metal target.

Went back to work and by the time I had time again, the range was full of cattle :-(

Anyway- if anyone else has a Henry - Does any of your casings sho just one side that has a large carbon..."footprint"?
I'm noticing on mine that it has a definite out-gassing in the firing chamber, and was wondering if I got a bad gun, or it's normal until it's broken in?

So far it's had about 20 rounds through it.

BUT,,, on the good side of things-

At least I'll be able to walk those new peep sites in on the Henry tomorrow.
I left boss with my keys to the rock saw and he took them home with him today (Sunday) so I'm going to the ranch and waiting for something to do until I get my (official) keys back.

So- I have a new Henry, a box of ammo- about an hour of paid time while waiting on my keys and paid to shoot.
That's one benny of the job:-)
AND when he gets out there, he'll probably want to give it a try.

20 hours in two days

And the bosses cows now have water!

I guess it's cheaper to run 1500' of 2" water line from the water meter than drill a well right next to the stock pens.
Kinda interesting to have a millionaire acting as a spotter and the two kids putting pipe together. 

He just shook his head when I rolled up for the last talk before leaving playing this :-D

Now, a little religion

Nehemiah 4:17
Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon.

Sorry for the lack of content,,,,, so BOOBIES!

...And something you don't see anymore on hte Intratoobzz:

Really h4xers?

A DOS attack on Y/mail?
At least that's what the overload would be from, right?

Because it's a private entity that doesn't rely on unresponsive, incapable cronies to be put together at a cost of over $500 billion in three years.

In other terms...


Right Eric Holder?
Valarie Jarrett?
Barack Hussein 0bama?

I do not like this Sam-I-Am

I do not like this near the house.
I do not like this with a mouse.
I would not like it with a pill.
I do not like it near my drill.

I do not your little wench.
I do not like your unfilled trench.

Please just let me leave.
I do not like it near your eave....

It's almost ours!

Just some shingled survey lines to straighten out and a neighbors affidavit that there has never been any drilling and we're good to go with 100% mineral rights, too!

The inner (non ag exempt 1/2 acre) compound ready for a new house..with friendly escort :-)

And the outer acreage with wild life (including copperheads :-s) and a welcoming committee.

Good Morning!

All four of us want to help you get started this Monday :-)

This made my brain hurt just watching it

F&cking just back up driver.
SRSLY! It's a lot easier than explaining what you just did to the truck, trailer and road.

But,,, Wasn't that what Social Security was for?

Before you and the rest of the "People who Know better" stole everything out of AlBores "Lockbox".

Now president Anti-Midas is proposing another retirement scam where the same people who bankrupted SocSec, the postal system, Medicare and everything else they've touched...are in charge.

But to answer Fox's question- yes it will get bi-partisan support because the Clueless party will walk right into another obvious trap where they'll get the blame for the Democrats actions..........again.
