Lifestyle Headache

My Bro wins the fight with a West TX buzztail.  Exemplary trigger protocol on an old school S&W 5906.

Well in to the summer down here in the puckerbrush even though the calendar says we are a coupla weeks shy;  several days already  over 100 with oppressive humidity.  That equals energy in the atmosphere and that means severe thunderstorms.  Had one blow through here a week or so ago from the northwest with 80mph wind, quarter size hail and an inch of rain in 15 minutes.

All I got to say is that it is getting harder and harder especially when the seller is intentionally vague about the Country of Origin.  This ain’t an oversight on their part – it is oh so intentional most every time.  They call it marketing.

Little Bears

My Sis in Law getting some use out of the DTB.

I wrote some months back about my frustration with Yamaha Motorsports and the fruitless attempt to get my ailing Yamaha EF2000iS properly lined out.  My solution to their desultory customer service was to plan on selling Little Blue and replacing it with a Honda EU2000I 2000 Watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator. For those late to the game, Little Blue started leaking prodigious amounts of oil around 1600 hours of use.   The game plan with My Bro at the Secret Hideout these last few years has been to mirror each other’s
