Beautiful night with the moon out , and today is about as nice as you can ask for. I spent the whole morning cleaning up branches , replacing shakes, and doing other housekeeping chores.
More and more evidence of Barack Hussein's spying on the Trump team in the months leaving up to the election. This segment below pretty well sums it up.
Just got this great song in, so I am updating this post.
Good on you, Australians!

But I'm working on it.
My wife and I are planting seeds in coffee cans this weekend. We have a glass plant house, and we'll try to grow some plants in these cans and then transplant them into our garden. Last summers garden didn't produce a lot of food but it got us going on the gardening path for the first time in a lot of years.
I've written to the BATF office in Atlanta, asking them what exactly I have to do to buy a tax stamp for a short barreled rifle. I've also touched base with the importer of the 9MM MP-40, asking them when they expect to have the MP 40 replica complete with folding stock available for sale. I'll have to marry up availability with the tax stamp.
Someone asked me about adding a bit of length to the barrel to avoid the need for a tax stamp. There's a .22LR version of the MP-40 that's imported into the U.S., but they had to add a non-detachable fake suppressor to it for that very reason. Totally spoils the gun. Ironically, you can buy the .22LR gun in Europe without the fake suppressor.
Here are a few photos of the county I live in.
It really is a pretty place. There are still some wilderness areas and national forest land where people can't go in and destroy everything to build themselves a summer house.
I was plundering around in a Thrift Shop the Humane Society runs, and I found a boxed set of VHS tapes on the war in Korea.
I'm enjoying watching it. I spent considerable time in Korea during the 13 months I was stationed on Okinawa. We went up there to participate in exercises. My uncle went through the whole of World War II in the Pacific Theater, ending up as an Infantry Sgt. in the Marines on VJ day. My dad was in the Navy in the Pacific.
My Uncle stayed in after the Second World War, and switched over to artillery. He was an artillery first lieutenant in the Marines throughout the war in Korea. My dad got recalled to the Navy, but spent the war at a naval hospital in San Diego. He was a pharmacist mate there.

Passing the Word:
This is an extract of an email from a friend. He is very knowledgeable about the firearms hobby and I am confident this is true.
Good news for fans of the M1 Garand. The Civilian Marksmanship Program is expected to receive 86,000 of these surplus WWII rifles from the government of the Philippines.
This is according to Gina Johnson, General Manager of the CMP South operations in Alabama.
Johnson provided the information late on Friday, April 7, in response to a discussion at The M1 Garand Enthusiasts Group public Facebook page.
