"But some there were, who resisted."
Two weeks of having family visit changes your routine. Particularly when they bring their dog, their squirrel, their ailing monitor lizard, and Belladonna the Mouse. The German Shepard puppy was a real handful. She isn't very well trained yet, but she's pretty strong. I told the kids they need to get on that when they get back, since it will be harder to train her if she is older.
I spent the last two days cleaning up the house. Conkers the Squirrel has a big cage here she lives in when she visits. My daughter got some sheets out of the laundry room for Conkers to snuggle in. What she didn't realize was that these were "Laura Ashley" sheets that cost a ton of money. When I went to wash the sheets yesterday, I found they looked like someone fired a buckshot load right through them. Told my wife on the phone and she said to keep them and she will look at them when she gets back. She's up North with the kids. So I am on my own for awhile. I am not overwhelmed at the concept. I need some rest. At any rate, I think I will have a nice set of $100 + sheets to clean guns with when she gets back.
Survivor's Edge isn't one of my favorite magazines, but I still subscribe. Sometimes, as in the case of this issue, it's worth the money. I particularly enjoyed the article on communications and radio equipment.
Here are some good cartoons. I haven't posted many cartoons lately, so I thought I would catch up a bit.
Those cartoons sum up all the BS going on today better than I could. I watched "Little Puffy Face" Marco Rubio assaulting Tillerson at the confirmation hearings. Had to turn it off. Prissy little twit, trying to get even for being trounced in the primaries. I wonder why so many politicians today are of such low quality. Where are the Andrew Jackson's? Not on the twenty dollar bill, had to make way for "Bush Ranger" Tubman. Oh,well.
