    What was your first firearm experience?(Content may not be suitable for everyone)

    Great thread Z Ms Cathies story mirrors my own except I was a little younger. With Dad's oversight, my big sister held the barrel with a towel so I didn't fall on the ground. It was too much for a 8-9 year old. It was a double barreled 12ga made at the turn INto the last century! and guys...

    It's funny and sad to watch, isn't it? Kerry's kids had a Labradoodle(?) and he got old & blind....standing in Kerry back yard, with DEER 25ft away.....and even THEY knew he couldn't see them but he managed to get around without too much bumping into things. Like you said, they seem to imprint...

    My turtle stretches his neck and opens his mouth wide

    Get him warm, 85F or temperatures are way to cold for our little guys that live in water. Read through the stickies at the top of this folder and you'll have something to do till more talent chimes in! My own experience in decades of keeping water turtles in indoor tanks showed me...

    I thought of you yesterday Ms Cathie when I was looking at Matilda from the deck, camera in hand and a hummingbird went to the feeder 5' from me, then hovered 2' in front of my face....I just stared...didn't want to move the camera! My deck railing in the hot hot! And it's been 1...

    Update on my Kerry. She told me yesterday morning that she was convinced the Paxlovid they gave her, was making her body and stomach worse (re; my comment re; her being a pita) so she decided to stop taking it after 2 doses of 3 pills. By last night, she was sounding energized again and said...

    Any day now.

    I had one for 15 years....most beautiful turtle in the world to me. Even as a kid growing up on the Bay in the late 60's, they were mostly on the Eastern shore so we didn't get to see them often. We caught him in the wetlands on the bayside of Ocean City Md while on vacation. My wife didn't win...

    I got into the truck to go home today and got a text from Kerry, who has been in NY since Sunday....she got covid infested. I called her and she sounded like death sucking on a lifesaver! I of course reminded her of her Superwoman status and suggested that she call her Dr. for antivirals or...

    New Sulcata owner

    Wow, he is a BEAST of Beasts! There is a set of Care sheets, right up there ^, that will hook you up! They are really good and you will find that a lot of what you thought was right, isn't. I'm old and even I learned new stuff. They were written by pros and are by far, the best I've seen...
