I was at The Other Ryan's blog, and I saw he had a song posted called "Country Boy." At first I thought it was the old Hank Williams Jr. song I like so much, but it turned out to be one I'd never heard before. Here's the link to it if you would like to hear it. I'd have posted it here, but it's kind of tacky to do that, so I thought I'd link to it instead of poaching it.

82 members of the House of Representatives have sent a letter to Obama expressing support for the Diane Feinstein effort to get him to prohibit importation of parts for guns she doesn't like, a list that is quite wide ranging. She wants him to do this through executive order, since she can't get the votes in the legislative branches to do it. The NRA ILA web page has the full story on that. I've got mine, and to spare, but I feel sorry for younger people who haven't had the cash to get the guns they may need in the future. Old Diane is doing all she can to be sure they don't. That woman is like the evil witch in a fairy tale. She just goes on getting older and more wrinkled, and more evil at the same time. Will she never retire, one way or the other? "Will no one free me of this meddlesome priest!"
The weather here has gotten nicer. Very warm, with a lot of wind during the day. No humidity yet but that will be here soon. Before long, it will be like a tropical steam bath in these mountains.
They will sleep on the bed sometimes if I put a light blanket for them to get under, but they really prefer their boxes. In this picture Jet couldn't get in his box because Ragnar had stuffed himself in there.
This is a picture of Ragnar when he was younger, before he had health issues. He was overweight back then, as you can see. Ragnar likes to eat. When this was taken he would do war dances and play with the other ferrets , and afterwards he would take a nap to recover. If you have never seen ferrets war dancing in a group, you haven't experienced life to the fullest. He's doing ok right now, I think the thing on his shoulder is going down some but my wife says it isn't.
. I have been reading a new book I got, it's excellent. Gives you the history on a weapon, then tells you how to field strip the type.
This is an old book, published in the 1990's. I really like it because it covers most of the firearms I have from post World War II. Lots of good photos and useful information.
All in all, yesterday was a good day. Sunday (today) I don't plan to really do much of anything. Just relax and rest.
