  1. You need to read "The Cowboy and the Cossack" by Clair Huffaker. Many moons since I read the book but there is a story in there about roping either a Siberian wolf or cat and presenting it to the mounted Cossacks as a gift.
  2. I've seen that before in a cheapie Sportsman's Warehouse chair. They'll fall apart after about 5 years.
  3. What do you call a white South Africaner that moves to the US due to all the violence in SA? An African AmericanšŸ˜Š
  4. I know, I know. Way off topic, but caulking or corking depends on where you are from. Nothing to do with Confucious. Corking is not a lost trade, just not much demand for it in most locales. Port Townsend, WA is another story. If you are not following Tally Ho, here's a little bit more about Pete. Hey, Pete. What are you doing? Fast forward to 16:30. Pete doesn't have a leg to stand on! Back to the original topic.
  5. Snake, Tally Ho! Corking or caulking, depending on where you're at. Corking
  6. Took me awhile. Putin on the Ritz!
  7. Elliot Seguin is a test pilot for hire and has an interesting youtube channel. After the flight, he debriefs and takes us along for the ride. He is constantly examining his own thinking and reactions. This P-51 3/4 scale did not fare so well. I believe it was also a Stewart built aircraft. 7-3-21 On edit, the plane in this video is a Titan powered by an LS1 Chevy motor. Plane has 140 hours total prior to this incident.
  8. Could be true. Back in Feb we ran into a couple in Texas Canyon (I-10 and Johnson Camp Road) that were returning to Austin from Flagstaff. Flagstaff was warmer at 7,000 ft. than Texas during your ice storm.
  9. I like Carmex Lime, but it hasn't been available for years.
  10. I seem to remember a joke about "t*ts a-poppin".
  11. Found this 4 ft long Sonoran gopher snake crawling around our front yard this morning. He's helping out with the ground squirrel population control.
  12. "I knew a man with one leg named Smith". "Really, what was the name of his other leg?"
  13. I've mentioned this before, Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time. We tried MDST the first year it came out and decided that we don't need another hour of heat at the end of the work day. No "Spring Forward, Fall Back" for Arizona.
  14. The Great North American Platypus (GNAP). I thought there was only one? Now they (it) have offspring?
  15. You ever hear of the good doc that gave it up for the drink? "I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy."
  16. I guess some of us don't know any better. I'd rather have the heat than the humidity and tornadoes. To each his own.
  17. I was just asking what is a rear tractor. Tongue in cheek, you know. Missouri Mule won't be offended.
  18. What the heck is a rear tractor? Something like this?
  19. I don't consider it cheating, I did look up BajaFerries. I just couldn't come up with the exact location they were leaving from the mainland. Are there multiple ports they operate out of? My brother dived (dove?) quite a bit out of Guaymas. I wanted to go with him but my problem is my right ear will not drain and caused the right side of my face to go numb for about 30 minutes. The first training dive was my last dive.
  20. Not to be nitpicking, I don't think the driver or the rig is stateside. Maybe La Paz or Los Mochis or San Felipe?
  21. Just checked, our roof-mounted weather station says 121F. I'm on the northwest side, River Rd & La Cholla.
  22. I wish I had taken photos. Down along the border south of Ft. Huachuca is a series of watering troughs made from large earthmoving tires. They had been split down the middle of the tread, laid down and the center filled with concrete with the fill pipe and float coming up thru the middle. Rust proof, bullet proof, only maintenance needed is the float valve. They'll be there a hundred years from now.
  23. If the ambient temps are above 90F it may never cycle, the compressor will always be turning. Depending on ambient temps, it does sound like the suction pressure is a little low.
