    Must have been a squall line or small funnel cloud passed over.

     o:) 

    That front that came through here yesterday was like that. Lots of wind and gusts with the downpour of rain. Happens when a warm front and a cold front do battle in these ridges. After the cold front won and it started snowing things quieted down considerably. Got enough snow to cover the ground. My FL friends that moved up here are all excitipated about the snow. I hope they enjoy all that black ice on the roads as they travel today. Hasn't been a snow for Christmas here in years, so  it is a curious thing. Most snow we get is in Jan. through April.

    Sounded like in coming for a few seconds last night.
    Loud wind noise and banging on the metal roof.

    No leaks and no damage I can find except  a bunch of twigs and pine cones
    all around and some debris on the roof. 

    Must have been a squall line or small funnel cloud passed over.

    How naughty have you been this year? Those were reindeer hooves on the roof, Santa must have come in a bit low and clipped the top of one of your trees.....

    Well, ugh...
    Got a gig request this AM to dance a bachelorette party. I've done a couple before, but only after a "meaningful discussion" with the hostess as to what I am and am not. Costumes stay on, respectful tipping is OK, payment in full up front, and anything untoward means I leave immediately! Most female Belly Dancers won't do bachelor parties for obvious reasons, so I'm *very* careful with these kinds of gigs.
    EDIT: They were, as I figured, looking for a different type of male dancer - and that's just fine by me! Don't like doing these kinds of gigs anyway.

    Dang!  Now you have to figure out a way to work THAT into casual conversation with SWMBO. 😂
    I assure you I will never have to explain to my wife that I didn't get the bachelorette dancing gig. 😥
    That's all I got.

    The conversation with SWMBO was short and sweet: "They wanted a stripper." "Oh, Ok."

    Then *SHE* can have the gig!
    Slightly more seriously, I'd make a lousy stripper. I don't have the innate sensuality it takes, and zero training besides. I took a tripartite workshop a couple of years ago, 1/3rd Belly Dance, 1/3rd Twerk, 1/3rd Burlesque. It was fun trying the "other two", but I sucked at them both.

    I'm old, fat, and can't dance a step. But if they want to pay........ I'm also not proud.

    Intoxicated women talking naughty and paying you to dance there and take it, sounds like a good part time job to me........

    I was looking for some bullets on gunbroker and I started in reloading components. On the first page were some primers that caught my eye. $230 for 1000 cci pistol primers plus $39 shipping. Wow. It makes me consider selling a few.

    Yeah. We got around 3-4”. It closed my school and most of the ones affected. 

    A lot of it has melted now. Luckily it didn’t stick to the roads. However, the roads are still pretty wet right now and the temp is supposed to drop below freezing tonight.

    I have (yet another) virtual performance coming up. I decided I'd do something I haven't done in awhile: Raks al Shemadan - dancing with a lit candelabra balanced on my head. So I went looking to see when the last time I did this was - 6, 7 years ago? Nope, it was 8 and the performance had some problems due to a situation beyond my control - so the last time I did this successfully was in 2010.
    So not only do I need to practice practice, but I need to get the Shemadan (candelabra) back in shape. Its covered with wax drippings, is dirty, and is an all around mess - and I only have 7 candles for it and I need 9! Ace Hardware - of all places - carries the candles I use, so I put in an order and they'll email me when its ready to pickup as its not my local store. The darn Shemadan is disassembled and in my freezer to make de-waxing easier. Oh boy!

    I just made this adapter for a customers pistol because he wants to use his suppressor on it. The difficulty was that the barrel doesn't protrude at all but has a sleeve thats pressed and pinned in the "outer barrel". I pressed it out, indicated it, turned it down to 8mm, threaded it and made the adapter, threaded it, installed and then turned it down to the liner diameter and then finally single point threaded the1/2-28 threads. I actually have the same exact cheap pistol as this and was considering doing the same until I had the bright idea to remove the 22lr liner from mine and make a 17cal liner for the abundance of 17hm2 that I have. Thatll definitely be something different and fun so I ordered a bbl blank.

    Curious myself, first thought was a Phoenix Arms but I'm not certain. Nice work BTW.

    You folks want to see something interesting, check out the results of this auction. Some Security Six's, NIB mind you, went for some serious cash.

    Watched a rerun of Death Wish (1974) last night. Can't believe it's 47 years old. Some of the gun handling skills? was laughable but a lot of the movies message fits right into our present craziness.

    Death Hunt is a better Bronson movie.

    Finished The Grand Alliance by Winston Churchill today. Read Alone a couple years ago. Have yet to aquire The Gathering Storm to complete the three volume set. Excellet windows to the past. Fascinating man.

    Back to yesteryear....

    Don't forget to let set warm up before adjusting the tuner.

    Niiiiiice! That my kind of tech - the stuff I cut my teeth on. I have an RCA console/floor AM/SW radio from 1937, model 811K with a motorized tuner. Restored it back when I was a teenager, still works.

    The video was very informative, I saw some old friends, and some new brands I'd never heard of before - lots of brands were regional in those days. Guy obviously has an Atwater-Kent fetish, but he can be excused for it as they made wonderful radios. The title "animations" were annoying though.

    No collection would be complete without a Zenith Trans-Oceanic!

    If you are looking for something to watch on Sunday night, PBS is running a series based on the James Herriot book, "All Creatures Great and Small" , watched the second episode tonight, got introduced to "Tricky Woo" and his flop bottom problems :D
