    Green beans up good. Came home late this afternoon and 2 rabbits had found them. Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it.
    It's all about the weekly farmer's market for us city dwellers. If we ever get outa here though, I do believe it would be worth it to us.

    What we need is some common sense spandex control.  I see having to pass a height/weight check in order to be issued a spandex owners card and a 3 day waiting period.
    One thing that would help, especially with the animal skin print spandex is a rule that states:
    NOT SOLD TO ANYONE WHO WEIGHS MORE THAN THE ANIMAL THE PRINT DEPICTS
    That would stop the HUGE cheetas and leopards running around in the stores. :D

    Nothing like growing your own in a garden. And using 'heirloom seeds' to do it, too. The old fashioned non hybrid seeds have the best tasting vegetables at harvest time. Case in point, those HUGE strawberries grown now don't have anywhere near the natural taste and sweetness of the smaller heirloom varieties. Tasting them side by side, you'd swear the huge ones are made of sweetened cardboard. There are several places to get the heirloom seeds from online. Just google -heirloom garden seeds- and have at it.

    Women, what's hers is hers, and what's yours is hers, therefore, she's got a LOT! :D

    In news of the weird, my motor start capacitors arrived today, which is four days earlier than expected. Guess I'll get in the shop tomorrow and do the replacement and do a 'smoke test' on the milling machine. I need to make a part for the 'other rifle' I'm building for the shoot.

    Love it. Looking awesome. You gonna put a buttstock on it?

    Nope. It's going to be a pistol. I really wanted one of those chipmunk .22 pistols. But they were just a bit cheesy for my taste. Can be made real nice, be wasn't a fan of the bolt. Real flimsy. Anyway, this fills that niche. 
    Here's the deal though. The barrel is like 18". Too long for my wants. I'm thinking 12-14. Of course I can cut and crown it. BUT! it shoots DAMN good
    as is. I'd hate to **** that up.

    That's starting to look "real" - I like it!!

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    It's growing on me. Still
    not totally satisfied with the looks. But if it shoots, has a decent trigger, and doesn't blow up, I'll call it a
    success. 
    I went to bend the bolt to clear the scope mount. Found out how the bolt handle was fixed to the bolt body. Solder. 
    Got it the rest of the way out, then heat and beat to shape. Installed the handle again which has a threaded hole what for attaching the striker spring guide deal to the inside of the body. Used that guide to line it up, and just super glued it in place. The threads alone will hold it, the glue keeps it from rotating

    If it shoots great, don’t **** it up. I doubt you’ll be shooting it offhand anyhow so I don’t imagine that a longer bbl matters much. And I like the looks of it. Maybe round a few edges and mill a few slots for details, but it looks good.  And also been there too with learning the hard way that something was silver soldered but it seems you got it worked out. I love the updates.

    Oh is a bench affair only, certainly.   Ill
    get it together and shoot it and make
    up my mind at that point. I would like
    to have it a little more portable, it
    would be hand for squirrel hunting.

    No. I had to bend the bolt to make it clear. Which I did last night.   I'm down to drilling and tapping one hole, then cosmetic stuff. Which probably won't be much at this time. I've got plenty of other stuff to do to get ready for the trip.

    Meh...

    My "main" sewing machine, a White 690, has always been a bit on the finicky side. When it decides it doesn't want to behave, it can be a royal PITA to figure out what its so upset about. This time, some kind of sticky glue crap near the top end of the needle - that's a new one. Must have picked it up from something I was sewing on - come to think of it, I had glued a new patch onto my shooting skirt before sewing it down. Well, duh...

    Making a pair of Muscle-Bustle pillows for my wife's Etsy shop - but if any of y'all happen to want one, I'd be happy to deliver to the shoot! Now my wife recently increased the price, but 'cause all y'all are friends, I can let you have one at the old price - limited time offer! Put some Muscle in yer Bustle with the Muscle-Bustle pillow!

    Because there's no reason for stuff not to. Why make/store two different style plugs when one will do?

    Absolutely. Non-polarized. There's just zero reason for 99.999999% of cordsets to be polarized. Something like an old AC/DC radio should have a polarized plug. They never did, but they should have. Some audio amplifiers and similar equipment need  them. I can even get on board with light fixtures for Edison based bulbs having them. But not much else, and the damn things are ALWAYS backwards when I go to plug one in. I'm sure there's some Nanny State reason for this, but I'll be darned if I know what it is...

    Ok, I'm done with sewing for the day. This machine just keeps messing with me, and messing with me, and messing with me. I'm probably going to switch back to the 1936 "Reversew" when I next pick this project up.

    Lowes sucks. Not a single 1/4-28 bolt do they carry.
    Guess ill try a real store tomorrow. It sucks, as all I lack for putting this pistol together is....two flipping bolts.

    fleeced the widows and one crazy person today. Walked 12 miles in the process. Got a bit hot today. I smell like a goat.

    Took the rifle out this Fri. Used PMC 62 gr to knock some of the dust off. Shot a 92 offhand and called them pretty darn close.One high 9 ended up as an 8 and one I knew I muffed wasnt as far out of the black as I thought and stuck an 8. 5-10's 3-9's and 2-8's. MAYBE the curse is lifted. I havnt shot that well in a while, maybe the stance breakdown and rebuild was the key.

    Machine sewing fine today. When I approached the problem from "Something wrong's here, let's fix it" instead of yesterday's "There isn't anything wrong, why does this )&%^% thing keep (&**(^^$% with me?".

    Must have been mis-threaded, I just rethreaded both top and bottom thread paths and all workee again. Helps to remember the basics instead of getting irritated...
