Put down the bar-b-que tongs for a minute and give a silent thank you to our nation's war dead.

Or better yet, give an out-loud hearty "THANK YOU!" to a live Veteran.

Please, folks, support the Korean War Project. Every little bit helps.

Baby Prep!

So, we have had 2 rounds of "false Labor" so far (probably really Stage 1 of actual labor, but what do you do.) I called in to S-Mart last night, I was toasted, felt like crap, and had overslept anyway. 9 Minutes late=tardy=unexcused absence with that place, so I figured why bother? I may be canned tonight, I may not. I'm too fried to care either way- I'll go in tonight & find out, as long as Baby isn't pending.

Our bags are packed, and all that is left to go in them are the "unpluggables-" you know, the laptop, the camera/chargers/batteries, etc.

Pics of the young'n will go up after he arrives- whic is te4chnically 'posed to be on June 4, but the way it's going, I may have to switch out some Alexandrite for emeralds.
It's all good.

So, here is a pic of the Daddy "Go-Bag."

Armchair commandos will like most of it, but it is you HHG lovers that will get that THIS Daddy is really trying to be a Hoopy Frood for his new family.

Busy Busy Busy!

Holy crap, is there a LOT going on. Almost no time to post here these days.
I have about a dozen weapons I'm working on, including 2 I need to get done for myself or relatives, and a ton of photos that need shot.

I still have yet to hook up the vinyl cutter, rebuild the computer that will be dedicated to it, and the Boy will be here sometime in the first week of June.
I need a clone.

So quickly:

I like MY rainbow better than Skittles (FNFAL mags, color coded for different loadings)

So I'm driving through Des Moines the other day, and blow past an African Grocery store.
I may have to stop & go in, mostly because I want to know what the frak an "ANFRAK" is.

And lastly, nbut not leastly, here is an FAL Test magazine with the popular "pine-straw" or "broom straw" camo pattern. The base color is MagPul Flat Dark Earth, the overlays are Sniper Green, Desert Mirage Brown and Matte Black, followed up witha matte clearcoat.
I have yet to find an Iowa appropriate shade of green, but reckon I'll get there somtime soon.

So, TTFN and have a lovely rest of May.
