I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing model airplane glue.

...or, to be out of the country.

Well, sorta out of the country.  A little too far north where they have funny money with pictures of kids playing hockey on it.
So, while I'm pretty much out of connection, we have the blogospere light up with all sorts of things I don't have the time or bandwith to respond to.

There was the atrocity in Colorado.  My heart goes out to the victims and families.  I cannot understand the mind of someone that would perpetrate such an act. 

Then the inevitable blood-dancing from the usual D-bags and political types (but I repeat myself).  So far, The Miller has the best response to the head D-Bag

There was the caught on tape attempted robbery of an internet cafe (they still have those?) and the critical failure of the victim selection process that was in the news as well.  As MI2Tall said "PePaw went and got him some."

Also on the CHL/CCW front, there was the attempted robbery of a pizza delivery guy by two shotgun-armed 'yutes.'  Pizza guy, with a concealable handgun, goes muzzle-to-muzzle with the bad guys.  Hits both of them, and comes away unscathed.  Never give in, never surrender.

I'll have some beer and wine reviews posted soon.  I was too far north to have any gun or knife related stuff to talk about- except how naked you feel in the middle of bear filled forests with nothing but harsh words to deal with any threats.


  1. I was wondering where you were...
    Canada is really big!

    1. It was the Vancouver/ Whistler area. Absolutely gorgeous part of the world, and the weather was perfect.

  2. That's one of my favorite places in the world. Breath-taking scenery! It also impressed this Texas girl for being the place where I saw snow on the Fourth of July.

  3. Wait, YOUR money is all one colour, and you call OUR money "funny" ? :)

    And go to a steakhouse when you're there. You'll find out how cow tastes like when it's raised on grass and not corn.

    1. Did go to a local chain (So I understand) called 'The Keg', and had an OK Ribeye. Would have been really good if they had not cooked it to medium well when I asked for medium rare.
